Wolph42's 'Drop-in' Bag of MT Tricks v.46 [DOORS]

These are tools and utilities that make it easier to run games. This includes Lib: macro tokens dropped into MapTool to manage the game, a conversion file for CharacterTool to allow use in MapTool, or just about anything else you can think of -- except graphics with macros and anything specific to a particular campaign framework. Those are already covered by the Tilesets subforum and the Links and External Resources forum.

NEW VERSION 46 1.5.14+ compatible (and earlier versions of 1.5)

New Features
- REMOVED TOKEN VBL FROM DOORS. Exchanged it for 'crack open door'. You can keep moving it further open if you want. For VBL you will have to use token vbl itself.
- Complete do over of the invisibility macros.
-- Players no longer 'own' the token if the can see a visible token.
-- added VBL check so you cant see an invisible token through a wall.
-- Also you can now set elevation for a token. The invisibility macros keep track of this when checking for range.
-- New macros buttons have been added to the bot panel and campaign panel.

Fixes
- fixed Nildiks frame overview
- fixed assertion error (and added one) in crowd function
- added check in link animate view and clear assertion (order numbering mistake)
- fixed issue where moving of teleportsborder would execute another teleport.
- added invisibility use check to diagnose (breaks when turned on but states not defined.
- fixed several bugs in whisperframe and added 'keepitshort' var to whisperframe where you can set the max length of both player and character name as it shows up in the panel. this keeps things a bit more compact
- moved the linked triggermacros in ontokenmove a bit around so they are in context of ontokenmove.
- made whisperframe more compact, saving screen estate.
- got notebook and manual running again.

I've used the Summon Token macro for years without issues. Now when I use it I get the message:

Code: Select all

java.lang.NullPointerException error executing expression abort(eval(inputStr)).
I have checked multiple campaign files on multiple versions of Maptool and for some reason I now get that error every time. I installed the latest version of BoT on my campaign file and still get the error. However, I downloaded the BoT campaign file and the summon token macro works just fine there. I'm not sure what has changed.

Here is a copy of my campaign file: Campaign File

before I delve into this, ill first ask the obvious question: have you ran 'diagnose' on your campaign file (its part of the bot macros)

Oh man, I forgot you had created that diagnose macro a while back. I just used it and found several tokens that I created last year that had commas and apostrophes in them. I must not have paid attention to that at the time. Thank you for reminding me about the obvious. :oops:

I removed those tokens and it worked fine. So I just need to rename them properly. Uhg, I've always hated this limitation with naming tokens for this exact reason. I knew I would do this one day. That's what happens when I go a long period of time without using MT. :cry:

Thanks man!

I tried to download the special pad zip file and got a 404 error from dropbox, is there any other way to get those files to install the full bag of tricks?

Thanks for the great work, I finally decided to try out the BoT and there is a lot of great stuff in there.

Small nitpick: the "seekToken" macro in v.46 has some debugging code left in that pops up a couple of dialogs with variable values. Easy enough to remove, but worth cleaning up for ... v.47?
