Lindsay's Generic Tools (Whisper, Move Tokens, Handouts)

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.

I'd hold off on b84. There are a few bugs in token movement that appear to be quite noxious. Wait for b85.

A request.
Anyone that reads this and has a little time and can code (I qualify for 2 of the 3) I would really like the teleport pad to be a 2x2 square.
Can anyone help me, please?

I like this Generic Teleporter because it's drag and drop. Nothing to set up at all.
Drop the pad, click the macro, Players move to the map.

Yours does seem really cool, so no offense intended.

None taken. ive used lindsays teleporter à lot myself. Both have their own merits. It's more that what you required in your post is a merit my teleporters have. Though the ease of setup is indeed Lindsay's feat. Choices... ;)

well I've made it easier for you. I've rewritten the whole drop-in, its now fully automated. To use the teleports drop one Pad (with the same number) on each map, run the initialize macro once and player can now move their tokens between the two maps whenever they want.

...and your still not gonna use it... :D. Nah don't feel obliged, I and others found it a pain too that you had to do so many actions before it worked, especially the need to dive into code. I just never came round to updating the code and while I was working on the 'transparent roofs' anyway I thought I'll walk the distance and finally make it a full 'drop-in'. I thought I just let you know.

Ok, call me an idiot, but is there any way to reset/delete entries in the Edit Handout Configurations table. There does not seem to be any way. I created a new Handout table but all the old info remains in that configuration box....


The way I would do it is to manually change the property or table.

UPDATE: And now I feel like an idiot for giving out bad info. Lindsay, previously the Handout info was kept on the Lib token in a property Handouts. Now, this is not there nor does the file come with the properties file to upload into a campaign file. So, how does one edit the handouts to remove the three generic handouts? Would it be possible to get a macro that can zero out this property? Thanks!



I'm experiencing these issues as well.

Additionally, how does one change the player list to be players other than the default "Hero 36" and "Eagle 61"?

Cheers!

Handout Access Control
There is a Campaign Macro: Handout Access. Just select a token and run that macro, you will be prompted to select which handouts that token can see.

Handout Sample Message Replacement
Just edit those 3 messages and make them say whatever you want. I don't have a delete in place but since you control what handouts are visible to which token, this does not seem to be a serious issue.

I can't download from 4shared for some reason. Is there an alternate link for the zip file?

Hey guys,

I am not sure if it was just me or what but I would use some caution with downloading this file fromt he 4share site. After I downloaded the file I got all sorts of nasties (adware, maleware, and trojans) installed on my machine and had to spend the next two hours cleaning it all off. All I wanted was a whisper macro without having to dream up the wheel again sheesh.

Not accusing or pointing fingers just putting up a warning.

Adware I noticed: Wizend ad, MyPC Backup
Trojan: TR/Dropper.gen

This is the version I have, which I can't find any so called ware on. I don't believe I've edited anything within the campaign file, just copied tokens/macros out, but I could be wrong.
