Can you post a screenshot from TheBat, so I can see what you're referring to? That's not something I'm familiar with. Here's the control panel for the ticker with normal and thin views, light and dark backgrounds and one longer length ticker. All ticker views were at lowish opacity. You will notice...

Could there be a movable/resizable/transparency settable RSS type panel showing a certain amount of text (amount obviously somewhat dependent upon the size it is set to)? Like on TheBat! email client, which shows info (From; Subject etc) from recent messages. And if there could be, would this meet t...

OK, that's it! I'm not making any more promises about release dates. Something always seems to come up that pushes the release farther back. I agree it makes no sense to release too soon - though many open source projects do release very buggy alphas to get the maximum early feedback; some people p...

I don't have a bunch of figures yet I have to use the same figure for multiple monsters. I guess I could copy the figures multiple times and give the all different names (in the folder). Does any have a good suggestion on other figure repositories? Another approach would be to use an image editor t...

No, because the job it does is very different. Right click does bring up a conventional menu for aspects of the dock that are best done through a menu; BRPG would need that. But some aspects of it, yes. Popping up where the mouse is radial menu (though BRPG would need everything designed and fixed i...

cartographersguild

Cartographersguild is a website about RPG mapping. Last month it had a competition to produce VTT maps (sponsored by RPGtonight with prizes) and has since set up a forum purely for VTTs. Quite a lot of posts from MapTool users (also ViewingDale), but I have only just realised that I haven't seen ma...

And could be interrupted for random encounters.

Would add a bit of tension with each scene since the party would never know whether something would happen. And could introduce a picture of something they really need to remember later too.

Good idea.

Almost sounds as if it would be easier to update fileXtra4 yourself rather than do extensive rewriting to switch Xtras. :?

This is bad news because, if no-one else does update it, you are stuck with the current version of Director or have to do a lot of extra non-renumerative work.

Re: Dice Macro Feedback & Reqest for thoughts 1.2b WindowsXp

With the suggestions aside, what have others done to make this process more efficient? 1. Avoid complex dice systems & therefore avoid dice macros. :wink: 2. Use physical dice anyway. 3. If something is repetitive and boring, then http://www.autohotkey.com helps. 4. My preference for a BRPG interfa...

Personally, I'd find that kind of eye-candy amusing the first and possibly the second time, and after that I would just find it extremely annoying and if possible, I'd switch it off. There's no point if it isn't switchable. I don't see it as eye-candy, but as part of the game. The delay is part of ...

Woah! 15 seconds is a loooong time. What would those dice be made out of? Flubber? ;) I think 3-4 seconds would be more realistic. On an average throw, then yes just a few seconds. But on an important one, there is the picking up time; the holding, praying and shaking in the hand time; then the act...

It could probably be better, at the cost of RAM, download size and hard disk space. It can be an important part of the experience, so the RAM, download size and hard disk space are of no significance, relatively speaking.

What we need are custom dice roller windows (or system specific dice roller windows.) As is, I think all the "noise" on the dice roller is unnecessary for most game. I think you are probably right.

I'm not sure it will ever be easy for VTTs to pay their way - and MapTool is making sure that a commercial VTT has to have something significant to offer to be worth more than free.
