NOTE: This guide assumes you are tracking your character in GCA, or someone else is.

There are two versions of this guide. The "Quick" version is for people who do not need/want little macros for all their skill rolls, HP tracking, and whatever. Type in what you're doing, track with pencil and paper or a Word document, or whatever. The "Macroy" version is for people who DO want little macros for all their skill rolls, HP tracking, and whatever.

Quick Guide Edit

It looks like a lot of steps but I like to break stuff up into little nibbles. They're all pretty simple.

  1. Log in to Google Groups and download the Maptools Macro export sheet for GCA here: http://groups.google.com/group/westmarchsaga/web/maptools_macro.gce
  2. Save the sheet in your My Documents\GURPS Character Assistant 4\Sheets\ folder.
  3. Open your character in GCA, go to FILE -> Export.
  4. In the drop down box, look for maptools_macro.gce and pick it.
  5. Make sure to select "Plain Text" and hit OK (otherwise it will happily not make any files at all).
  6. Pick a place to save it in the file popup and hit OK.
  7. On Game Night, right click on your Mini in Maptools, and pick Impersonate.
  8. Open up the text file you created with GCA, and select everything, then hit Control C to copy it.
  9. Go back to Maptools, and hit Control V to paste it all into chat. Hit enter.
  10. Play the game!

Macroy Guide Edit

  1. Follow steps 1-6 from the #Quick Guide.
  2. Go to back to Google Groups and save http://groups.google.com/group/westmarchsaga/web/LIB_GURPSDieRoller.rptok and http://groups.google.com/group/westmarchsaga/web/GURPS_player_token_macros.mtmacset somewhere
  3. Open MapTools. Maptools will automatically create a new Campaign for you.
  4. Go to EDIT -> Campaign Properties. The first tab will look messed up - switch to another tab and back again to fix it. Known bug.
  5. In the big box with some D&D stats in it, delete all the D&D stats, then paste in the following:
    Strength (ST):10
    *Basic Speed (SPD):6
    *Dexterity (DX):10
    *Health (HT):10
    *Will (WI):10

  6. Hit the UPDATE button (THIS IS CRITICAL - it Does NOT save when you hit OK)
  7. Now that you've HIT THE UPDATE BUTTON, you can now hit OK :D
  8. Drag-and-drop LIB_GURPSDieRoller.rptok onto Maptools.
  9. Now to activate the new dieroller you just installed: Click on the new orange ! token and in the Selected tab, click "onCampaignLoad" - it'll take care of itself after you save the campaign out and re-open it, but you should run it the first time.
    If you don't have the Selected tab, go to WINDOW and check Selected. There should be some buttons on it.
  10. Now that you have a campaign with the properties and a die roller installed, I recommend saving a copy of it so you never have to do this again.
  11. Drag-and-drop a picture to use for your character token into Maptools, and name the new token. Make sure to set the radio button to PC. Pick OK.
    Character token pictures are up on the Wiki unless you have one you like better - at which point put it up on the Wiki so we know who you are.
  12. Click on your new character token and Right Click (control click for MAC users) in the Selected tab. Pick Import Macro Set, and import GURPS_player_token_macros.mtmacset from wherever you saved it.
  13. Right click on your character token, and pick Impersonate.
  14. Open up the text file you created with GCA, and select everything, then hit Control C to copy it.
  15. Go back to Maptools, and hit Control V to paste it all into chat. Hit enter.
  16. Customize the attack and defence and damage macros as they're set up for Ted's Gargoyle at the moment - right click on the button and pick Edit - you can rename them using the button on the left, and edit text in the box below.
  17. Now's a good time to save the campaign again :D
  18. To get your token OUT again - right click on it and pick SAVE. You'll get an rptok file.
  19. On Game Night, drag and drop the token into Marks game.

Using the Dice Roller Edit
