Far too low. Certainly too low for BRPG, and for a lot of people's tastes, but it is the type of resolution preferred by a lot of other people. It's a similar resolution to DungeonCrafter 1 & 2 and a lot of DungeonForge users map at 20 or 40 pixels to a cell (and the maximum possible was 128 pixels...

Seriously, kudos to you for the work. I've not even unzipped the file because of your reports (& no time for testing myself) and you've clearly enabled Heruca to produce fixes in double quick time.

One slight OT question.

I too have a full version of Acrobat - but I have Foxit Reader set as my default PDF reader because it is so much faster. Do you really find the full version of Acrobat best for reading?

Maybe there are more people than I am aware of that use and abuse these VT systems. I'm afraid that the VT using community will quickly share knowledge of any discovered abuses on the net.

Batllegrounds is looking awesome and I'm in the process of trying to convince everyone to take the old game online for the small licensing fee.

I hope it all goes well / went well.

I can see the possibility that a mobile network might switch user IPs much more than a static network though that shouldn't stop an initial connection.

Well, it is more of a standard Windows UI. Not so good for atmosphere, without turning it off, but very comforting and familiar to most Windows users.

The blank map is good. But far too much mouse movement is needed to get things done. I would have a single (large or tabbed) preferences/configuration panel that all the more permanent settings can be made on. I would have a number of other panels for all the other activities. I would like to start ...

It seems to be compatible with MYSQL.

    kept simple so it is the setting, campaign, situation, group that is all the focus of attention and the mechanics and rules are just in background to give a structure
Occasionally other stuff as it comes along

I'd have to agree with Heruca. You never know when you will want to use the most detailed graphics and it is better to keep them available. The price of HDs should make this no problem. Heck, you could even open up a Gmail account especially if your b/w is better than your disk space.

A common problem shared by most of us. There's not much you can do about images that have been produced to an inappropriate scale. You can adjust the size as you use them in most programs; if they seem much too big then you can just resize them (I tend to use FastStone Photo Resizer for my resizing)...

Opera works on the Mac

Opera works on the Mac. Better than FF & ie & Safari. Keeps its tabs when it reloads (at least it is your choice if you want it to) and I usually have 20 - 40 tabs open. I'd go for the 9.50b option; seems stable enough to me

Heh, in other words, an editable table-based object manager.
