Fortune Teller files

I saw a fortune-teller (tarot) .ipt running on a webpage, and saw mention of it in early forum posts here. I cannot seem to find the .ipt and graphics for this and was wondering if anyone could point me to a download for this.

Comments

  • There's a download link for the .ipt at the very top of http://www.rpginspiration.com/tables/Fortune-Teller-Rider.ipt
    It's small but it's there!
    Not sure about the graphics. I leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine how many fortunes you need to generate to see every image. :)
    Also not sure exactly where you put the files to make them work.

  • As far as where to put the images, I may be able to assist. I worked through some of that when loading the Runes generator recently. I have all my data files on a SD drive and uploaded to the cloud, so I found it best to use a full path name.

    And... In certain tables, I found that I absolutely had to use the double-backslash "\" workaround that I found in an old forum post. Here's my runes generator (only slightly modified from the original available on NOX) - pretty easy to see how it works:

    Table: MysticalText
    Maxreps: 1
    
    Prompt: Select a material {stone1|stone2|wood1|marble1|marble2|paper1|paper2|vellum1}stone2
    
    <table background="G:\OneDrive/Documents/Inspiration Pad Pro/Generators/Runes/{$Prompt1}.jpg"><tr><td>[@{2d4-1} Paragraphs]</td></tr></table>
    
    Table: Paragraphs
    [@{2d6-1} Words >> implode &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;]\n\n
    
    Table: Words
    [@Runes][@{3d4-2} Runes]
    
    Table: Runes

    Note that the "html-ish" background call does not need double-backslash syntax, but the main table does. Working in Win10 and Chrome.

  • Awesome rework. Correct me if the braincell is twerking here, but the framework of the table acts as a container for the rune results. With the graphics being part of the dynamic element of the generator the backslashes in the URL's need to be escaped, or the rest of the IMG tag is ignored. Yes?

  • I found \t and \a were still getting replaced, despite the double backslash. But apparently that's case sensitive, so when I changed the paths to \T and \A it was fine (and Windows doesn't care about the case of filenames).

  • Hmm, amusingly, double backslash also gets replaced by a single backslash on this forum.

  • Since I've got eight machines on my network, I made a virtual drive to a directory on my file server and hard-coded everything to to that drive. Now I can toss everything back and forth between machines all I want without having to worry about conflicts.
