Nice.

Here is another one. I know there are a number of gamers in my area that use this one. (Primarily for face-to-face meetings and to find other gamers in the same area to play with.)

Flash versus HTML5

So the battle has been raging for a while now and it looks like HTML5 will eventually come out on top.

Just curious what (if anything) this means for Battlegrounds. I would be interested to know your musings on the subject...

If you at some point plan on allowing search, could I suggest you also allow use of multiple tags to help categorize things. I would want to be able to assign multiple tags to each object/figure/whatever.

I think you'll know what I mean, but if not ask and I will explain in more detail.

Also, when I set views and name them, do the players get those buttons and names as well. For example, if I set a view and name the button "Outside Dragon Lair", do the players see a view button called "Outside Dragon Lair"? I can check this myself later obviously, but just can't easily verify it ri...

For me, I cannot set a view by holding down control and clicking on the view button. I have to use alt. Pressing cntrl and clicking on a view button does absolutely nothing (whether I use it in combination with alt or not). Also doens't matter which control I use (right or left one). Is it possible ...

The ability to assign Turn Sequencer settings via the Figure Editor. It might be difficult because the sequencer is very customizable. I think I know what he means by this. I was looking for the same thing - it just felt natural that it should be there. I think what he is asking for is the ability ...

Organization Advice?

Any long time BRPG users here that would be willing to share their methods on organizing their figures, objects, maps, etc.? I am a new BRGP user and already I am getting overwhelmed with all the tokens and other items I have. It takes me forever to find anything. How does everyone else do it? I kno...

Alright, perhaps I shouldn't have even mentioned IPv6. I edited my post to take it out even. Most devices do support it today, but the internet is still using primarily IPv4. And since we are don't have enough ip addresses, we have to use NAT. And since we use NAT we run into all these port forwardi...

Turn Sequencer not immediately saving values

Okay, this one really confused me as well. I finally got it to work, but it too me playing around for a while before I finally figured out the trick to it. I have a large map that has many unexplored rooms. I have already positioned all my NPCs on the map and hidden them from player views. I did NOT...

Turn Sequencer not notifying correctly

I had to test this to be sure. In my last game, I got confused while using the turn sequencer. I now know why. When stepping through the turn sequencer the first player/npc in the list doesn't get a notification. Let me try to explain. I have 4 figures in the turn sequencer (in that order): 1) Sam 2...

Another option for those having connectivity issues may be to invest in an uPnP router. Most new routers already have this functionality.

I can't think of anything wrong with offering options...

Shared party view is checked and unselectable

I am putting this here, because it probably isn't a bug... I probably just don't know what I am doing. When I enable FoW, on the grass map (set to 40 hexes by 40 hexes) (scaled 1 yard to a hex), I notice that the "Shared Party View" box is checked and greyed out. I don't have the ability to unselect...

Yes. It is definitely an option - and is what I am doing now. Since I can rotate it 90 degrees before importing it into Battlegrounds, it is really only a minor feature request. My only gripe (also minor) is that north isn't at the top of the page anymore. :P It also becomes confusing when the playe...
