You are currently viewing MapTool 1.5.7 Released

The RPTools elves have been hard at work bringing you new and wonderous functionality in MapTool. We are proud to announce MapTool 1.5.7 which brings improvements to existing functionality, new capabilities, as well as new and improved macro functions. MapTool versions from 1.5 onward are 64-bit OS only.


  • New accessibility features allows the user to apply Perlin noise to tiled textures to reduce obvious patterning.
  • New user preference (Edit -> Preferences -> Application -> Performance) for Max Frame Rate allows users to set a desired Max Frame Rate.
  • More updated macro functions for improved performance and reliability.
  • New GM macro panel for GM only macros. These macros are saved as part of the campaign.
  • Bug fixes!

For a full list of changes and bug fixes please see the MapTool 1.5.7 changelog.

    My party is playing with 1.5.6, but I’m unable to find this version, and Maptool tells me, that 1.5.7 is not compatible with it. Isn’t this something that shouldn’t happen with patches, or am I doing something wrong?

    There was an issue with 1.5.6 running on Mac. You shouldn’t have a problem loading your 1.5.6 campaign in 1.5.7. However, the 1.5.6 release is on GitHub should you want to use it.
