Not happy with FFG's online editor, because it misses some parts (the "*" search token for example.

I have TileSystem, but can't find a Descent 2e tileset for it.

I did find Bryan Livingston's Vassal module: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/843098/descent-2-vassal-modu...

Like he suggests somewhere in that thread, I renamed his file to .zip, and extracted the graphics. But I don't know how to get them into the TileSystem software.

Anyone done this?

I started working on one, but was having troubles getting the edges to line up and demand fizzled, so I stopped...

For what it's worth, I would probably use it and moderate a PBF if I had access to the stuff.

I'd be interested as well. The official online editor looks great, but I don't understand why FFG left it incomplete.

Bryce, do you have the Lair of the Wyrm stuff as well? I think the Vassal module only includes tiles from the basegame.

I'd be scanning stuff in myself if I'd have a scanner.

I've got everything scanned, ready to go, just need to figure out the images as tiles (rotating them causes issues aligning to the grid, and I need to get that resolved).

Well, it is technically a beta version, right? Maybe I'm a dinosaur of another age, but where I come from betas are expected to be incomplete.

Although I will concede that they seem to be slow on implementing feedback.

I haven't been looking into it so much. I only checked it when they first launched it, thought it was cool, but didn't own the game at the time. I saw comments from people about the missing graphics dating back to January. That's over three months ago. I know they are offering this for free nd that it's a beta, and I am grateful for that. But to me the missing things are a turn-off. I'm no programmer, but it seems like this is something that can be easily/quickly remedied by FGG, and not something that should have been left out of a beta version.
