Nat 20's in initiative

Post by edwilke86 »

How can I set the program to automatically make nat 20's take you to the top of the initiative order? And vis a versa for nat 1's?

The sortInitiative() function will sort the initiative order from high to low if run in a macro. There is also the sort command on the initiative panel itself.

@mfrizzell That would only work on Map Tool's initiative support, not on Initiative Tool.

Initiative tool has a game settings file that needs to be modified, then the script updated to handle that special case.

Which tool are you using?

My bad, didn't look at the forum header.

Are you using the default game settings file or one of the others?

Sorry for the delay, I'm using the default game.

What's the difference between the top of initiative and the bottom? Since it cycles, whoever is at the bottom acts right before whoever is at the top. If you are moved to the bottom, that puts you in exactly the same position as being moved to the top.

After the first turn that happens. On that first turn, you are last
