RPG Map 2 latest changes

0.12.1

  • Removed debug message at the bottom of the screen.
  • Added a "New map" option to start with an empty map (no walls)

0.12 -- Mobile & tablet support

  • Touch & trackpad support -- The web version app now works properly with touch-enabled devices such as Android and IOS devices. The Windows version should also support trackpad on PC and touch screens on devices such as Surface Pro. You can now pinch to zoom or move the view using two fingers. NOTE: many large windows (such as Map Settings) won't fit on small screens.
  • One Page Dungeon -- You can import maps generated by the One-Page-Dungeon by Oleg Dolya (@watawatabou).
  • Moving & resizing map -- You can now move around your map in 2 different ways: click on arrows on the sides, or activate the "Move map" mode by using the dedicated button near the map (top left corner). If you hold and drag the arrow buttons, you will resize the map.
  • New map -- You can now adjust a few settings when creating a new map (the old "Destroy" button).
  • Get medieval -- Added a new Medieval font style.
  • Font color -- Added black font color option
  • Fixed interface scaling on mobile display.
  • Bug fixes.

0.11.2

  • Bubbles -- Text bubbles are a new display mode for texts. Think of it as an in-between display mode between inlined text and legend-block texts. They will auto-position in empty spaces of your map. You can also manually move these bubbles and their skin can be personalized from the Map Aspect window.
  • New changelog window with scrolling support.
  • Updated example maps to demonstrate all the latest features.
  • Fixed icon + text alignment.

  • Cthulhu -- Added a new example map in the Import menu ;) R'lyeh!
  • Grids -- You can now configure the grid color, intensity and shape (squares or hexagons). The Grid options are now stored in your maps, so each map can have its own specific settings.
  • Main icon bar -- The main bar has been updated and sorted out. Buttons should be found in more logical locations. Your feedback is always welcome!
  • Move/Resize -- Inspired by the Ogmo 3 interface, you can now resize the map by simply DRAGGING buttons on the side of it. Instead of dragging, if you Shift+click these buttons, you can move around the whole level easily.
  • Printer friendly mode! -- This mode will fill plain walls with white to reduce the amount of ink needed to print a map. A long-time requested feature!
  • Fonts -- You can now freely adjust the font size (small, medium & large) for all available font styles (default, script, typewriter etc).
  • Black & white lights -- B&W skin can now have lights and fog.
  • Image export parameters -- You can now resize exported image and add some optional color contrast.
  • The way random elements such as trees, crates or fog are drawn has been slightly updated. Adding one of them should not alter other elements again. You can now randomize the "seed" of all the random elements from the Map Aspect menu.
  • Updated and cleaned up the About window.
  • Added Check pattern for grids (hexagons are coming soon!)
  • Fixed menu buttons repeating the same action twice.
  • Fixed "GM only" flag being lost on Undo/Redo.
