View Full Version : Show movement and square count?

August 27th, 2010, 04:50
In watching the video that Xorn has posted, it looked like when movement was performed there was white line tracing out the movement and a square count displayed.

Is that part of the standard 4e set? If so, how do you activate it?

Thanks in advance,

The functionality is implemented from within the ruleset. As the GM if you 'lock' tokens (right click a token on an image/map, select radial option at the 6 o'clock position), players can indicate the movement they desire but the GM must first accept the movement before the token is actually moved.

The white line you stated, is the visual indicator FGII draws to indicate the requested movement.

To go around corners and such the player hits the space bar to create path way-points while laying out his move(s). I know some groups use lock tokens because they really like the way the move is counted.

If the player messes up his move he can restart the line by doing a slight "wiggle" of the token.

After the initial drag, you can drag the small white box on the end of the vector to add additional points to the move path.
