All, we're working on making an automatic download based on operating system. Please visit the link below and post back your operating system and the line from the web page after "Here is the full info about your OS:"

for me it is:
mozilla/5.0 (x11; linux x86_64) applewebkit/537.36 (khtml, like gecko) chrome/51.0.2704.106 safari/537.36
for Ubuntu 14.4 (yeah, I know I should upgrade).

Thanks. Your help will make it easier for first time users.

Regards,
The RPTools Staff
this is using the User Agent Here is the full info about your OS: And here is the first item of an array we got from the directory based upon your OS:

Unfortunately we don't have that much control, that is the only way to uninstall it. But good news is, the "install" is really just a fancy unzip to your user directory. There isn't any dll's or anything hidden into your windows directories. So you can also delete the directories manually and you won't be left with any artifacts.

+Joseph Moskie the counts are based on the number of distinct server names over that period. Or for those that show version info unique server name and version.

MapTool version 1.4.0.2 has been released. This fixes the tableImage() 3rd parameter issue and adds the capability of changing the recursion depth.

Seeking RPTools Developers

Hey all, we're in need of a few developers to knock out some feature requests for MapTool. RPTools software is all open source and relies on the contributions of its community members to make improvements and enhancements to the software.

You're a perfect fit if you Java, Gradle and Git. All skill levels can help since some of the requested features are fairly easy to implement. Others require a good bit of thought and input. 

You can find a list of features on the assignment list spreadsheet in google docs.

Dan of the Dead posted about playing Call of Cthulhu with MapTool.

"RPTool's MapTool proved to be a wonderful way to coordinate combat and visuals."

Thanks for the call out, Dan.
And now for something completely different! Despite being scattered across three states, I was recently able to get an RPG going amongst my friends. It's been years since I played, and longer since I tried to run a tabletop g...

Bad news. There is an issue with the tableImage() in 1.4.0.1 that might affect some of the character sheet frameworks. New build coming soon.

For the Role Playing Games You Play
Introduction

RPTools is a brand of open-source programs designed to enhance traditional pen-and-paper role playing games. They can be used for face-to-face play, or Internet role-playing in real time even if your players are on the other side of the world.  MapTool (which is our free virtual tabletop application) in particular works great with voice-chat services!

These tools are not a role playing game by themselves, nor are they meant to replace everything at the RPG table. Rather, they are designed to be as flexible as we can make them, usable for a wide variety of gaming systems, from fantasy to sci-fi; from tabletop miniatures games to purely spoken-word games.

The tools aren't built from the ground up for any specific RPG, which is what allows for the great flexibility we have, but as a result, it can be difficult for us to indicate easily to individuals how best to make use of the tools for their specific purposes. Fortunately, the community forums are a thriving, active source of rapid responses to any questions you may have. We take pride in this as one of our greatest strengths and we encourage you to join us there. If the game you want to run is a commonly-found one, there's a good chance you can locate someone who's done most of the fine-tuning for you!  At the risk of leaving some out, our users have developed frameworks for D&D3.x, D&D4e, Pathfinder, ShadowRun, nWOD, GURPS, and many others.
