Release 1.5.12 adds a few new features and a number of bug fixes.


  • Terrain Modifier enhancements:
    • Token terrain modifier can be flagged as NONE, MULTIPLY, ADD, BLOCK and FREE
    • Tokens can be set to ignore Terrain Modifiers.
    • Per map setting for rounding of fractional movement costs: NONE, CELL_UNIT, INTEGER
  • Can now specify a campaign file on startup:
    • With command line options -F or -file, e.g. -file=path/to/file/mycampaign.cmpgn
    • Passing the path and file without command line switches, e.g. maptool path/to/mycampaign.cmpgn
    • File association – will need to manually configure this through the appropriate OS settings
    • Drag-n-drop of campaign file on executable.
  • Major refactoring of use of JSON in code. Replaced all uses of net.sf.json-lib library with the Google GSON library.
