Initiative Tracker Plus or as good as combat tracker

I have been using Initiative Tracker Plus for a while now and I like the look and feel inside chat as well as on the battle map. The problems I have with it though is that it does not give a way to do a group initiative and the !group-init API causes the !itp -start command to not work. Then there is the fact that it does not sort the combat tracker when I start it. This is all a problem as the functionality of the combat (written by Robin Kuiper) works perfectly with grou-init, it automatically sorts the initiative order and there are no conflicts when grouping the commands from that combat tracker in with other API commands in one macro.  What I would really love is a way to make ITP automatically sort the turn order and allow me to do group initiatives. Has anyone else seen these issues and found a solution?

Hmm.  How is GroupInitiative failing with Initiative Tracker?

Not sure why but when I create a macro with the following commands: !group-init !itp -start nothing happens. No errors on the API scripts side of things and nothing happens in game, no init, no starting of initiative tracker.  If I split them up into two different Macros it works fine.

Hmm.  Try installing this little script snippet: on('ready',()=>{ on('chat:message', (msg)=>{ if('api'===msg.type){ log(`API Command: ${msg.content}`); } }); }); then run your macro and look at the API Console log, you should see: API Command: !group-init API Command: !itp -start If you don't, that means there is a problem with the macro (possibly a space or invisible character before the !).  If you do see that, I might ask you to PM me an invite to your game and GM me and I can investigate.

Am I adding this snippet in the API scripts side or adding that to my macro?

It's an API script, just add it as a custom script in a new tab in the API area.
