View Full Version : Pointer differences between GM and Players?

Does anyone know why my players pointers on a map would not show the correct distances?

The pointers should be consistent between the players and the DM. If you do not put a grid on the map with FG then the points will not show a distance.

You may also be talking about the while line that players use when their tokens are locked. It would appear to me the line pointers use the pythagorean theorem to calculate distance (probably with integer math) but the pathing line counts squares.

It appears that the problem was both in pointer distance and locked movement distance, although I only tested pointers with my player.

We drew pointers side by side and my distace of 30 feet measured 20 feet with his pointer.

Maybe post a screenshot of it in action?

A screen shot of this would be good and you should probably post this as a bug in the House of Healing.
