MapTool

MapTool is a very nice program by RPTools that we use for netplay.

RPTools Download Page: http://www.rptools.net/index.php?page=downloads

Current Version we are using:

OBSERVE: This is not the latest build

You have to run Java 6 to make it work.

Campain File

Instructions:

  • Use a 1024MB Memory for when you launch MapTools
  • Use a 4MB stack for when you launch MapTools (the default batch file is just 512KB so is insufficient).
  • Connect to server:
    • 89.236.60.47 (Röjne)
    • 92.244.19.81 (Perkko)

Java ERROR

  • If you get Java error after updating java to java7 its because MapTools can not run on java7 for now.
  • To fix this you need to make sure MapTools is using java6. Instructions: http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19503
  • In short you need to edit the mt.cfg file and change the line that starts with JVM= to:
    • JVM=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw for 64 bit windows
    • JVM=C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw for 32 bit windows
  • Alternatively you can change the batch file
    • “C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw” -Xmx1024M -Xss2M -jar maptool-*.jar run

Windows 10 & maptool-1.3.b91

  • Download and install Java 7 uppdate 65 (x64): http://www.oldapps.com/java.php?old_java=15362
  • Download the currently used MapTools: http://www.rptools.net/downloadsw/
  • Start the launcher-#####.jar file by doubble clicking it.
  • Change language to english on the seccond tab if it looks weird. Quit program and restart to take affect.
  • On Basic tab: Set the three fields to: 1024, 256 and 4
  • On Advanced tab: Click select Java catalouge. On a standard installation of Java 7 this is:
    • c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\
  • Now you should be able to Launch Maptools

Mac

  • To increase the Memory limits on Maptools for Mac you have to edit the info.plist
  • To access this file right click on the app and select Show Packet Content The file is right there.
  • Open the file with a Plist editor or a text editor like Smultron or TextWraggler
  • Find the Key WMOptions
  • Change the Value/String to -Xmx768m -Xss4m (it works for me)
