Hi Aaron, thanks for the quick turn-around and adding this feature!  I'm looking forward to using it. Please remind me, how long does it usually take to push out a new version?  Reloading my API shows TokenMod at v0.8.41, not 42, even though I have "Latest" version selected.

They usually do it on tuesdays. Might be next Tuesday though. You can get the latest version from my repo if you want to try it out before then. Link in the first post.

Link in the first post.  Thanks, I’ll do that. As a very minor note, in your version description on this thread (just previously and in the first post) you wrote: “ Additionally, I added a pseudo field  Scale : scale  is a pseudo field which adjusts both  width  and  height  with the same operation. This will scale a token to twice it's current size.” However, the “this will scale...” sounds like there will be an example after it, and there isn’t (I know there is in the help, and that’s the important place; that’s why this is a very minor note ;-)).

That’s a good point. I was being rushed by the wife to get the kids out of the house. The help, from where I shamelessly copy/pasted that, has an example following it of exactly that nature.

Yes, I did see that, and this isn’t meant as a critique, just a helpful pointing out of a typo that he might want to fix on the top post of this thread for future viewers. No biggie, but worth editing at some point IMHO. keithcurtis said: Aaron posted an example a couple of posts later.

Sweet. =D. Let me know if you come up with any more enhancements!
Hello, I love seeing this getting some updates. Has anything been done with doing recursive tasks to tokens? Going way back to random HP for tokens using a custom formula?

Good reminder. Not yet. There’s a question of how to specify that, and how to capture what to apply.

This (version with scale and u,g,s modifiers) should be live now.

Hey, since the scale update, there seems to be a bit of a bug. When I select one or more tokens and run --set scale|*2 (or --set width|*2 height|*2), it correctly sizes up the graphic, but Roll20 seems to think the token's location is different from the graphic, and it messes with the token's normal size handles in such a way that the first time moving the token will size-snap it to the grid. <a href="https://imgur.com/jM7ocl9" rel="nofollow">https://imgur.com/jM7ocl9</a> In blue is where my mouse cursor is, clicking once after running tokenmod, but it's selecting Lyn. In red, it shows what I mean by the token's size handles. Only the top left three are showing.&nbsp;

I can confirm the first part. I ignored it because it seemed to settle down after I selected other objects.

Hmm. See if the previous version has the same behavior. This pretty much has to be a Roll20 issue, scale literally just expands to width and height.&nbsp;

It seems to fix itself once I've selected it once, but when I'm resizing a batch of tokens at the same time, I have to select each of them in turn which can take a while. The latter part is the big issue for me; there's a small familiar in my game that snaps to a full grid unit even if I alt-select it.&nbsp;

Hmm. I’ll have to see if I can duplicate the behavior.&nbsp;
1548893264
Hey Aaron, I think since the change that roll20 did, my token-mod regarding movement has gone wonky. Before I could use --set left|+[[2d10]] and it would move 2d10 pixels to the right.&nbsp; Now the graphic goes ALL the way to the left of the screen, moves a smidgen (probably 2d10 pixels) and then disappears.&nbsp; When I reload, it ends up where it should be.&nbsp;&nbsp;

Ug! &nbsp;That sounds related to what Mik was saying. I’ll try to duplicate the issue, I’m betting on a Roll20 bug, but I’ll try your command and see. You’re using the latest version, right? Just want to make sure I test apples to apples.&nbsp;
1548950077
Yes i believe im using the latest.&nbsp; Used the one click install with the latest option.&nbsp; I figured it was related to what he mentioned.

Aaron, it's all so new yet, so I'm sure there are a lot of bug fixes/ workarounds to tackle first.&nbsp; Before getting to suggestions, I definitely want to see existing features restored.&nbsp; So consider the next as a back-burner idea ... Suggestion/ Feature: When those are fixed, could we see new controls for stopping and starting the animated tokens (looping)?&nbsp; Could be useful to macro animated traps. !token-mod --set ani-looping|on !token-mod --set ani-looping|off !token-mod --flip ani-looping|on
Hello Guys I am also experiencing problem with one of the macros. It was working before the update and is not at all complicated. I dont really dont know what may be wrong !token-mod --set aura1_radius|8 aura2_radius|16 Is only this but when i click is not working. I cannot see the auras popping. Dont know what I am missing

If the grid is off, auras don't show up right.
Yeah, I saw that is a bug after the new patch. Thx Aaron. I tought it was weird that the other macros were working and not my distance/range macros that I use with auras

Update v0.8.43 &nbsp;-- Added displaying 0 on status markers where that makes sense.&nbsp; Fixed ordering of status markers (Roll20 Update changed the ordering). One new thing in Roll20 since the update is that Status Markers can show a 0.&nbsp; Previously, 0 was represented as no number, but now it will display.&nbsp; This is great for showing things like elevation: !token-mod --set statusmarkers|fluffy-wing[1]:3|fluffy-wing[2]:0

=D. Sweet. If you have a different script specifically for flying, I can point you toward how to fix it. Or if you mean you’re already using TokenMod for it and it was messing up the order, then great, that should work with version 0.8.43!

I wish they would allow us to go from 00-99 instead of 0-9, but oh well ...

I’m considering rewriting the statusmarkers code in TokenMod to handle the extra digits automatically, so you’d just say statusmarkers|blue:32 And it would add or remove digit statuses for you.

Don't wanna derail the topic, just think it's important for end users like me to know.

I think it would be hard to have too many scripts... It really has more to do with what the scripts are doing, when it comes to misbehaving APIs. That said, when the API is misbehaving, it doesn't have an effect on the performance for the client. If your client is running slowly, it's more likely to be something about the browser, the local computer, or possibly something in the chat archive.&nbsp; I would suggest trying a different browser, or trying a browser in Incognito/private mode, disabling extensions or functionality of the browser that causes it to traverse the website DOM (Firefox had a thing with autocomplete that killed it's performance for a while.&nbsp; Try rebooting your computer, disabling things that might be running in the background.&nbsp; And finally, try torching your chat archive. If none of that helps, well... I'm not sure what to try next. Oh, if you're using Advanced Fog of War, try disabling that.&nbsp; Also try disabling dynamic lighting.&nbsp; And be certain that your browser is using hardware acceleration. I've not noticed any problems in Firefox or Chrome on the Mac, but I have a pretty beefy Mac currently.
