Statblock2Token is broken again. And now we can't use the old versions for some reason.

Code: Select all

The easiest way I know of if the statblock2token macro is broken is to use the "Setup Blank" macro under the Setup section. It will walk you through a bunch of different screens and most of the things are pretty self explanatory. Number of Hit Dice, Total Saves.. etc. I'll try to get a new video made soon since LM changed a few things with the macro and then I'll post a link here.

I haven't been able to reproduce this error, were you copying a monster from somewhere or were you using a custom creature like a PC?

I'm sorry for all the questions but I'm not very good at this kind of thing. How does one go about creating a PC and statting them out and getting all the buttons available to the player for them?

Is it any different for making an NPC? If so, how do you do that?

Its the same process, I'd just suggest having the PC's Character sheet handy when you're programing the character in. As far as getting all the buttons available to players, when you host a game, the players will connect to your client have all of the framework loaded along with any maps you create, so all they have to do is join your game.

I just tried a few different statblocks with no error... you will need to supply more info.

The older macros are still in the older campaign files, I just found that this one was doing a decent job and removed the clutter.

The buttons are in the Campaign window (or on the character sheet as links). So as long as you share the campaign macros your players will have what they need.

The only differences between a PC and an NPC are vision and data exposure. You set them up the same. But NPCs will show less data to the players than PCs (as NPCs are generally the GMs tokens).

If you are starting with a fresh token, run Setup Blank on it as a baseline, or use Statblock2Token if you are copy-pasting from a PDF/Website. Once you have that baseline setup, the Edit Char (or Sheet) macro will let you tweak various elements.

Ok, I seem to have everything working, thus far. Just wondering, how come I can't seem to gain access to spells as a magus in the plothos spell tracker? The option is there, but no spells appear to be available to learn.

Also, when I run setup blank and try to get into the skills part, there's a stack overload. I set my stack to 3 as suggested and it didn't work, I also tried four. This might have something to do with the fact that maptool won't start when I use the launcher, I have to use the executable jar file. I don't know if that's normal or not.

The Plothos Spell Manager data is fan populated. So if Magus is incomplete, go for it! :-)

It sounds like you are using MapTools b89. I have not extensively tested in that version as it has bugs that are significant enough for me to not want to run with it. When b90 is released I will test and release an updated framework.

Switched to b87, still having the same problems. Should I be able to launch the game from the maptoollauncher application? The error I'm getting is unable to access jarfile maptool*.jar

First of all I would like to say that this framework is great and a few friends and I just started using it a few days ago. I have just a quick few questions,
1. Is there a way to make Maptools calculate whether an attack hits by comparing the attack roll to the targets AC, by using this framework?
2. As above, but with damage auto-applied as well.

Am I blind or is there no option to change what stat affects damage? Would be useful for people who run dervish dancers or zen archers and the like.

I've had this pop up with a couple of different stat block formats. From what I've gathered, nothing is wrong with my character block with 2 of them, however with 1 it just didnt stat as a whole. The problem was in the stat block.

What i would do is compare hero labs stat block to the official paizo block and see what is extremely different.

Also, a trick i learned to stop the problem in a couple was to simply cut and paste it it into a notebook file. Then cut and paste it into maptools.

So, don't kill me but... I'm a total noob to MapTool and (obviously) this framework. Do you have a Wiki or tutorial page I can take a look at? I'm planning on DMing a campaign with some friends and this looks like the best tool/framework to use. But i don't know HOW to use it lol.
