CombatMaster 2.0

Is there a way to prompt for a token when you apply a condition?  Like in below, can I prompt the user to select a token to apply this condition to? !cmaster --add,condition=frightened,duration=?{Duration|1},direction=?{Direction|-1}
1622914344

Edited 1622914381
You could change the duration query to ?{Select token then enter duration|1}

Persephone said: You could change the duration query to ?{Select token then enter duration|1} Ok that would work, but what I really want to do is something like this so that I or my players can apply condition more easily (this is part of a larger idea I am working on) !cmaster --ids @{target_token_id}--add,condition=frightened,duration=?{Duration|1},direction=?{Direction|-1} Basically what I am trying to do is capture the post from DNDBeyond (using the Beyond20 extension and a custom) to capture what condition a player sets on their character sheet and then apply that condition to the token for that character, but no token is selected when that message comes through.  I could use TokenMod to set the icon, but then I loss the tracking of CM. Basically I have found that combat runs WAY to slowly for me and a lot of it has to do with the tools (not that the tools are bad, but they are slowing down my games) and I am trying to find a way to automate more of the book keeping.

Is there a cheatsheet of all the !cmaster calls that I can reference?

I have a problem with combat master since the last partie. I don't have the timer, the circle red and green even if the script run and I can pass token turn with the arrow button. Anyone have got this issue ? Thx in advance ^^!
Chris W. said: Is there a cheatsheet of all the !cmaster calls that I can reference?  There isn't (there's a whole lot of different commands) but if you click on a button from the CM menu you can press the up arrow key while you have the chat box selected to get the command.

Yeah that's what I ended up doing to write my macros. A full list would still be a handy resource because there are probably a dozen functionalities that I didn't even realize cmaster will do.

Unfortunately, I don't think CM has a parameter for specifying token ID, except in the case of removing a condition it usually adds ,id=<token ID> to the end of that command. I haven't gotten it to work with other commands, though.

I have a handful of custom macros I've written over the last couple years, hopefully one of these days I can find time to compile and share them.

So the more I get to know CM the more I am really enjoying it.  But that has led me to a question.  Can you use a custom status icon set with CM?  My DM has a really great one he uses, but I noticed the list of icon hard coded in the CM code, so wanted to ask if there was a way (short of editing the code myself).

Yep, it's no problem. If you've got that custom set running in your game, select Token Marker instead of Combat Master for a given condition, and select from your list.

Dumb question: Would someone be kind enough to explain how to begin using this API? It appears the script created 16 "archived" handouts in my journal. But I cannot read them (or delete them), and clicking "restore" doesn't seem to do anything. Typing "!cmaster --main" or "!cmaster --help" does nothing either. I read through the first two pages of this thread as well as the first two pages of the Alpha thread, but I still can't figure out how to get this script to do anything. Is there a wiki I'm supposed to be reading?
1624307329
!cmaster --main should bring up the menu in chat. then the circle with the I in chat on the top right will bring up a link to the help for that section of the menu. I don't think you have to have to be on the page with the player ribbon to bring up the menu but you might.
1624307594
Thank you for responding, Kilter. I appreciate that. Unfortunately, I'm not getting the help from the Compendium tab when I type "!cmaster --main". Are the 16 achieved handouts in the Journal tab supposed to be there?
1624308001
Yes that is the help handouts.
1624308814
So the fact that I cannot open them or restore them is probably the problem?
Jason D. said: Thank you for responding, Kilter. I appreciate that. Unfortunately, I'm not getting the help from the Compendium tab when I type "!cmaster --main". Are the 16 achieved handouts in the Journal tab supposed to be there? To be clear: you need to run !cmaster --main, then click any of the Info (I) buttons on any CM page to bring up the help. The help handouts, I think, are meant to be archived on purpose. You only call them through the Info buttons.

I've been using CM for months, and for the life of me, Concentration *never* prompts for a roll. These are my settings. As best I can tell, these have worked for everyone else in this forum. I've tried having the Concentration status as a condition instead of a spell. I've tried with the Concentration status requiring Concentration and not. I've tried setting the Attribute under the Concentration settings to "hp" and to nothing, as well as constitution_save_bonus. How is this supposed work?!
1624479385
Nevermind! I had to cheat, which is really frustrating. Somewhere way further up, I noticed that it was recommended to manually set the character sheet to "OGL." But that option does not appear anywhere that I can find. However, when you view the help file for the Concentration settings, it lists "Sheet" as one of the settable properties (despite there being no button for it). Going through the chat log, I determined that using this command line (manually) !cmaster --config,concentration,key=sheet,value=OGL Ought to do the trick, and lo and behold! It does. That seems like a significant oversight to me, inasmuch as it was not easy to figure out through the UI. Just my $.02 anyway.

@Colin go to the wound bar in the concentration menu and reset it to bar 1 or bar 2 depending on which bar is maintaining hit points.  There may be an issue with the default setup.  Even thought it shows bar1, I suspect it's actually Bar1 (case sensitive) which won't work.  Concentration notifies me when someone needs to roll.  Of course, the target token needs to have a concentration condition on them.

Ok, so I installed this because combats in my game have really slowed down a lot as the characters went up in levels and had many options, and facing many foes. I wanted it mainly for the turn timer but thought some of the other features might be useful too. So, after installing it, and checking a few of the help pages, the only setting I changed was for the players to roll their own initiative. I added a couple of characters (including NPCs) to the turn order and sorted it since the instructions say that if players want to roll their own initiative, the turn order has to be set before starting combat.  CombatMaster crashed. I don't know why and I didn't capture the crash log because I wanted to go through the same process again, step by step, to see exactly what I did that caused it to crash. So, I restarted the API. I selected the same characters and rolled their initiative. So far, so good. I then sorted the list using Roll20's menu. The following popped up in chat immediately without my doing anything: After that, combatmaster was just dead. There was no response to things like "!cmaster --main" and no crash reported. It just wouldn't respond. And it wasn't counting down the turn timer either. In this state, it seems unusable (at least by me).  Anyone know what is going on? Or does everyone use it to roll the initiative and my setting it so players can roll their own breaks it?

There has to be an established turn order prior to CM starting combat.  Your api server crashed for whatever reason.  I just manually rolled initiative and then started up combat and it worked fine.  You've got something off in either your initiative config or your starting combat too early.  Make sure everyone has roll their initiative and sort the turn order prior to starting combat.

Once the api server crashed, timer countdown will stop.  Timer is working fine.  Just turn it on and set the time you want to give everyone.  
1627064955
As I said in my original post, after I restarted the API sandbox, I added players to the turn order tracker, sorted the tracker and started combat. Nothing happened other than the one entry in the chat log for the first player's turn. CM just stopped. Funny thing about this: a couple of days later, I went into the game to do some set-up and... CM just started on its own. It started counting down the time for that first player's turn, and when it reached the end of the time limit, it went on to the next character's turn.  I opened up the main CM menu with "!cmaster --main" and... it believed that combat was OFF. There didn't seem to be any way to stop whatever was happening and all of the menus in CM believed that there was no combat running. I eventually turned if all of by deleting all of the characters from the turn order.

Tried searching first but maybe I'm not picking the right keywords for this issue. When copying and pasting a token with token markers defined in CM, additional copies of the marker appear on the pasted token and the condition is spammed in chat. After some testing, it doubles the number of pre-pasted token markers and then spams chat with the post-pasted number of token markers. Exhaustion x1 --> Exhaustion x2 (2 chat spams) Exhaustion x2 --> Exhaustion x4 (4 chat spams) Exhaustion x4 --> Exhaustion x8 (8 chat spams) Ran the test with TokenMod disabled. Is there an option in CM to disable to replication of token markers?
1627413948

Edited 1627413988
@Johnny S. I have noticed that recently, too. I haven't figured out what's causing it exactly, but I've just been dragging new tokens out then applying the markers to them, rather than copying existing tokens. You can also disable the chat message when adding a condition, to prevent chat spam. If you want to do this, set Send Changes to Chat as false.
1627421507

Edited 1627421522
I've turned off send changes to chat and that solved part of the problem. Now I use TokenMod in a dropdown query to assign token markers with a short description if it's a Condition. Still would like to have the ability to copy and paste tokens (especially to a new map) without CM doubling all the existing token markers. Last night the players had minimal levels of Exhaustion and copying their tokens to the new map gave them a fright as some of them now had 2 or 4 levels of Exhaustion on the new map!
Is there a way to have Combat Master sort the turn order in an ascending manner?
1627508474
!cmaster --main Click the cog (Setting) Then turn order.
i tried that and all it does is not sort the turn order where i want the order sorted just in ascending rather than the default descending.  
1627589380
It looks like the coding is set to ascend according to the help files.  I didn't see anything in the code to change it, but I would think there would be away.

Roll20 put in something that broke that code.  It should be working but isn't.  Just manually sort the turnorder after it's created.

Hi, I was going to set up some FX when applying a status, but no matter what I put in the FX setting, it's always using a burn FX. The Help is useless on that topic. What format do it put that in? just the FX name?
1628275096
Another one ... If I use the --clear command it only removes the status markers. Once the turn of the token comes up, the statuses are still listed in the turn announcement. I don't think it's supposed to work this way? Does anyone know how to actually end all statusses on a token at once?

You need to set the clear statuses on close to true under the Status menu and then stop combat.  That clears statuses and conditions from CM.  The clear token statuses simply removes the icons from the tokens.  That was put in because I was noticing duplicates in the Roll20 campaign object

I have seemingly lost the thread where I originally asked this: I'm having some trouble getting the light macros I am using to set vision for my characters to work with the custom markers/combat master. I have tried pasting the macro for the light in the api for the condition, but I believe that is only for a different script that I do not have installed.  Any help getting this figured out is greatly appreciated. The goal - when a vision type from my light macro is selected, the appropriate status marker appears on the token. In this example night vision.

@Greybeard, no. you can't @Saul, you got something wrong.  Set turnorder, start combat it works.  You may not be playing 5e?  You have something strange going on?  But it works.
