  • A few ideas: On scaling of figures - that probably should be on a separate screen. Have a ruler on one side of a figure and then you can scale it accordingly. Also, have something that is already scaled to the map shown (like a tree, cow, horse, h…
  • I had one of those "Oh WOW!" moments when I realized that Screen Monkey did not have and needed one thing: Database access. This may sound weird or wrong - but if Screen Monkey used something like SQLite, then a lot of problems (ie: Multiple maps…
  • I thought I had put this suggestion in but after re-reading my post - I think I left it off: 1. Be able to do the simplest shapes. IE: Rectangle and ellipse. As a way to unmask an area. Most rooms are rectangular or ellipsoidal.
  • Hey! Long time no been here! I saw this and thought I'd add a few items of my own. 1. Re-mask. This should be fairly easy as it is just the exact opposite of un-mask. 2. Right-click drag of map. Instead of having to scroll up/down/left/right…
  • We are on an playing: Site:
  • All ScreenMonkey (SM) programs have to be edited in a plain text editor. Some people use Notepad, some Notepad+, others PSPad, and I prefer VIM. VIM is a throwback to the pre-graphical interface era. It is simple to use (I=Insert, A=Append,O=Open…
  • Here is a code snippet on my thing about the PUBLIC command: public aPlayers(100) public nPlayers public aOpts(100) public nOpts Here I am making two arrays (aPlayers and aOpts). Then I have two variables which will contain the count of ho…
  • Show code please. Hard to decipher what is wrong if we can't see it. Thanks! :-) *editing my own post* Here is one way to test if you are the GM: curSession = GetCurrentSession() gm = curSession.GM If "gm" is null - then you are not t…
  • Hey Ed! :-) Have you ever taken a look at Neat Notes? It is a lot like The Keep in keeping track of information. But it can't do the dice rolling and some other features of The Keep. (Which is why I bought The Keep! :-) ) Still, there are a l…
  • I am going to be trying SM again this Saturday at around 6:00pm. Watch for my posting for when I am going to start.
  • Well, I finally gave up and removed SM from my laptop and installed it onto my web server where it functions beautifully. SM keeps saying that something is missing on the laptop. Unknown why - but it works great on the web server. :-)
  • Announcement is back up but I'm going to have to chat via the web interface. SM itself dies when I try to use it. I've uninstalled and re-installed twice now. No good. Ok - I've switched to another system, uninstalled SM from my computer and i…
  • Here is the dialog box I get:
  • I downloaded the 1.6g version and it says "License File missing or corrupted" and then dies. Since it is an installer - shouldn't it just install and ask you for the license number again if it can't find the file? :-( (And today started out so we…
  • Ok, Screen Monkey updated to version 1.5d. When I try to use the chat feature it dumps me into the debugger for Javascript (or JScript). Here is the function it is dying on: function getNewChat( that, bTimerOn) { var xr = getXrequest(); …
  • Yes....it was up and running. Then it started having problems. Now the chat won't work. I'm going to completely uninstall it and re-install it. I think killing the defragger messed something up. It is dying on the xr.open command in Javascrip…
  • Neither - just plain old MSN. Finally found my registration numbers, rebooted the system, reset the disk defragmentor so it won't come up until 6:00pm, announced the game, and am now waiting. *whew!* Windows Explorer was at 1.2GB!!!!! Unknown …
  • Wow. My reply disappeared. I looked at the Hero stuff but since I'm unemployed and piss poor - I can't buy anything right now. In fact - I can't find my registration information either right now. :-( So I can't annouce. I'll send you an e-mail…
  • Starting up around noon. :-)
  • I'm going to try starting at noon tomorrow (Saturday) for a couple of hours to see how well SM works. Password is test for this session. Hope to see you there. :-) (I'm also going to go look at the Hero stuff here in a few seconds.)
  • Everyone always starts at first level. The reason for this dungeon is so that, when you get out of it, you are able to survive in the outside world. Warning! I have had people play in this dungeon for years without ever leaving it. They find it …
  • It's a mixture. :-) Some, I do, some comes from Campaign Cartographer 3, City Designer 3, and Dungeon Designer 3, and the original map comes from a very old game. Here is the background for starting in my game: SPLAT! You land hard onto a t…
  • I'm thinking this would have to be done differently than how you are thinking it should be done. The problem, as I see it, is that on the GM's side of things - this would be easy to do, but on the player side of things - it would not be so easy. T…
  • Ah! But if you helped me - then you would know all of the secrets of the maps! :-) I've got lots of images downloaded from lots of places. Also, I own Campaign Cartographer (although I only use Visio to do all of the maps as it is so easy to us…
  • Sure! Unfortunately, right now I'm still trying to get everything into SM. I've managed to get two of the nine pages done, still working on enlarging the separate rooms. When done I plan on annoucing I'm ready to ref. Should be a couple more wee…
  • Sorry - Windows XP Pro. 2GB memory on system. Admin mode. Standard laptop window (1024x768), File size > 2MB, Image size > 1024x768. I found out that if you go into ScreenMonkey and delete all of the maps which relate to the last time yo…
  • Ok - add the regular ScreenMonkey crashes also if you load in a really large map. ScreenMonkey should really dynamically allocate memory as needed. Most systems come with over 1GB in memory but even 512MB system probably have a lot more memory tha…
  • More on the map. Since only one upload is available at a time per message. Here is one of the rooms blown up. One of the nice things about Visio is it's ability to zoom in (which Fractal Mapper has also). The items in the rooms are actually sc…
  • Hah! I've discovered that Scenarios DO save the mask! (And monsters and stuff.) Clever! :-) Might I suggest that the Scenario stuff be expanded a bit so you can update the scenario by selection rather than having to type back in the entire name…
  • The active icon (on SM Lite) has a black line that goes around the icon to show that it is selected. If you load in an icon image that is two or three times the size of the default icons that come with SM Lite what you get is a small black square i…
