Hey Everyone,

I tried to upload it into the forum download part, but it keeps crashing. So i figured i would just put it up on here. I made an admin app for myself and some friends and figured i'd share it with the gloomhaven community. There's a pic below to give you an idea of what it looks like. You can download it for Mac, Win or Linux it works best at 1920x1080 resolution but should be ok for the others.

I've got no plans to put it up on the stores or to make a mobile version.

Thanks, Don! I downloaded of the Facebook post this morning. As I don't actually have the game in hand yet I can only tool around in the app, but so far things look grand. Thanks for sharing!

It looks great, but I'm having trouble opening it. Could you explain how to go about opening it? I'm using a Mac computer. Thanks!

This is super great Don. I was thinking of building a thing like this (but much more spare) to manage the monster decks myself but now I don't have to!

For other folks looking to download: Google shows the zip contents like a directory but you just want to download the whole zip so click the down arrow in the top right after following the download link. On Mac you'll need to right or Control-click the application once unzipped and choose Open then confirm in the resulting dialog box.

Don: what about a confirmation dialog for a round reset and changing the monster modifier reshuffle icon to match the rotating arrow symbols.

Honestly, the Cephalofair Games should pay you (or take it over for you) to make this available in regular app stores and on mobile as it takes care of a lot of the tracking and shuffling hassles.

would you prefer feedback be posted here? or facebook? I downloaded it a few minutes after you posted to facebook - is this a new version? (had the same question about the attack modifier deck, and the curses.

From gallery of nickv2002

Here's a larger screenshot (click through for the much bigger version).

The app tracks monster status as well as handling their action and modifier decks. Elemental infusion and rounds are also tracked.

You download it, then unzip it. I believe you just double click on the .app file, but i don't know a mac so i'm not a 100% certain...

If you have facebook go to this group:
https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=gloomhaven%20board%20...

the mac users on there seemed to know what to do

Problem with iOS is that i have to get the Developer Certificate from Apple, create a company, then go through the whole iStore process which is a headache in itself and i'm STILL not guaranteed to get it into the store unless they are 100% satisfied with it.

Trust me, i wish i could just publish it to iOS and give it to you guys like you can do with the Android Apps.

Let's just say Apple's shield is too high level for my dispell ability for now But maybe in time i'll level up lol

This is interesting. I think if it combined the card drawn with the base stats into one place (like Gloomy Companion does) it would be perfect for what I want to do with an app. This still might be good enough anyway to replace the two app solution I planned to use.

Another suggestion is to do the math for us for the monster actions.

In other words if a monster usually has movement speed 3 for regular and 4 for elite, but the monster card says move +1, display it as move 4/5 (with yellow text for the elite version).

Not that this math is hard to do it's just a pain to keep going back and forth between the table and action card.

(EDIT: I guess this is similar to the comment about Gloomy Companion that was mentioned above)

Unity (what this app is built with) does support web versions with HTML5 + Web GL:
https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/webgl-building.html

There's no DB needed for this kind of thing so something like GitHub should be able to host all the files but let me know if you need more private hosting.

I've been working on the web based version but unity keeps asking me to optimize more and more. So i'm slowly trying to clean sections as i can. Hopefully it'll be available soon Then it'll be a matter of getting someone to host it lol

That would work from an ios device... right?

I echo this - I love that gloomy companion does this automatically - I think the files are available on github so should be relatively easy to mod in?

Very nice!

A few suggestions:

1.) It's hard to know that a new attack modifier card was drawn if you happen to have 3 of the same cards in a row. I know the number of cards left in the deck is shown which can be watched for, but an animation that shows the card draw instead of just re-drawing it would be helpful.

2.) There's a lot of wasted space that could be used to show more monsters at once. The nice thing about using the android app for monster health on a tablet is being able to see most (or even all in many cases) monsters at a glance.

3.) Echoing the above posters, incorporating the monster attack card modifiers with the abilities (like Gloomy Companion) would be great.

Hey, I don't know if anyone will read this lol but...

Anyone that dowloaded the Gloomhaven Dungeon Master app before 3:45pm (EST) Jan. 18, 2017 please re-download it. The Ancient Artillery at Level 0 had my testing data so the stats are completely wrong.

Sorry i can't believe i missed that!

It would be nice to be able to undo modifier deck draws, and even shuffle the modifier deck without adding in the discards - in case you mess up and draw when you shouldn't have.

This is brilliant. It actually combines my two favorite apps.

We're considering embedding it on the wife's website so we can use it via playstation, etc.

Are you okay with that?
