Re: 3 die types

Welcome, Talysian. Not in Dice Macros, which only allow up to two die types. You can, however, use as many die types as you want on the game table. For that, you can either use the free Dice Pack or make custom dice using graphics that you supply. But that won't handle aces or totaling the results.

Re: The Movie and TV Thread

Lately I've enjoyed Black Summer (Netflix's version of Walking Dead), and am starting to get into The Punisher series. Also thrilled that Game of Thrones is back on, at long last.

Kinda torn on Walking Dead, ever since Rick left.

Re: Request/Suggestion for Future of Battlegrounds

Thanks for the feedback, Seeker. Frankly, I've always wondered how the Roll20 Marketplace and the FG Store deal with the criticism of having so many products for sale that it would be too expensive to purchase it all. That's an unfair criticism, of course, but I get that a lot with MapForge, too, be...

Re: The Movie and TV Thread

Sounds like a great cast. Haven't heard anything about it. In recent years, I've gotten more into audiobooks than movies and TV shows. But I recently got Netflix, and I have to admit it's a bit addictive. My favorite series in recent times was Altered Carbon. I also rather enjoyed The Tick (sort of ...

The latest word is that nVidia has released new GeForce drivers that allow BRPG and BGE to run properly. It would be nice to hear from users for whom this has resolved the issue.

How to get Battlegrounds (BRPG or BGE) to run on nVidia PCs

Mike, a BRPG user, has managed to get BRPG running on his nVidia-equipped Win 10 PC. This wasn't possible for the past couple of years, as originally noted in this forum thread and discussed more at length in this one . Below, I'll post his step-by-step instructions, which will hopefully get both BR...

Re: Which virtual tabletop should I use?

Welcome, Madamx. It would help if you mention what RPG system/s you plan to play and what operating system you use. For free VTTs, go here and scroll down to the "Free" section. Battlegrounds (aka BRPG) isn't free, but it's great for in-person play with a projector or HDTV. Do you plan to use real m...

Re: Latest Windows 10 update breaks BPRG?

There's no installer. You just uncompress the zip file that you downloaded.

Do you instead mean it doesn't LAUNCH or RUN? If so, do you have an nVidia GeForce graphics card?

Re: Video backgrounds

Welcome, Michael. Adding the ability to play videos to Battlegrounds would be a pretty simple matter. In fact, it's already got the QuickTime plugin in the Xtras folder, and other video formats could also be supported pretty easily. Unfortunately, I'm no longer developing Battlegrounds at this time....

Re: BGE doesn't work on Mac OSX 10.13 High Sierra

BRPG and BGE only work on Mac OS X v10.1-10.6 (aka Snow Leopard). Which no one uses anymore. If you mean do they work on modern versions of Mac OS, the answer is no, they don't.

After making/importing the deck, I would flip over all the cards to be face-up, then lay out all cards spread out (using the Stagger command, as shown in the tutorial videos), and would then proceed to order my deck by setting the stacking order of each card in the deck.

That's right. As noted on the System Requirements page for BGE , the program only worked on Mac OS X v10.1 through 10.6. I'll issue you a refund. There was a Kickstarter campaign to try to fund a major update to BGE and BRPG which would have made the apps usable on modern Macs and OSes, but it faile...
