Anyone with tabletop simulator willing to help test or who wants to try a game with me, install the workshop mod (just click Subscribe on that page above), and then add me as a friend -- steam user "dcmouser".

While playing we can chat in the discord server for (server name ""), so install discord as well.

The Germans seem to be ahead of US in board gaming appreciation  :up:

I've made my mod available as an early NANY 2021 release: https://www.donation...ndex.php?topic=50231

I'd love to hear if anyone tries it with their friends.

N.A.N.Y. 2021 / NANY 2021 Entry - TheDieCrew Tabletop Simulator Mod
« on: August 04, 2020, 10:06 PM »
My first entry for 2021 is a bit unusual, it's a Tabletop Simulator workshop mod to help you play the awesome new cooperative card game "The Crew" (Die Crew in german).



Download and play here:

  • You need to own Tabletop Simulator, which is not free; then you just subscribe to workshop items to add them to your copy.
  • This version of TheCrew knows how to deal out each mission, but it does not enforce rules of play or determine trick winners.
  • It is built on a large table, which affords plenty of room for mission cards, but may be difficult to read cards without zooming in.
  • Tabletop Simulator is essentially just a 3d world environment for playing games with other people -- you need friends who also install this to play along with you -- you can't play by yourself, or with multiple people sitting in front of the same computer.


I don't think you can open more than 1 zoom session at a time..

Developer's Corner / Tabletop Simulator -- Anyone played with it?
« on: August 02, 2020, 07:21 PM »
As many of you know, I'm a big boardgamer and this pandemic has really but a dent in my real life gaming.

Recently I've been playing a bit with friends on Tabletop Simulator.  It's clunky and a far cry from playing in real life, but on the other hand it's better than nothing..

Anyway I've spent the last couple of days learning how to code/script for it, making custom behaviors and events, etc.  It uses Lua and the Unity engine.  It's pretty kludgey in some ways but it works and I'm having fun.

Anyone else done any Tabletop Simulator coding?

Here's a screenshot of TheCrew mod that I've been working on (there are already a bunch on Tabletop Simulator Workshop that are good, I'm just using it as an excuse to learn the platform):


If you have tabletop simulator on steam, you can find my mod here: https://steamcommuni...tails/?id=2184711207

Ok time for another zoom meeting this month (Aug); shall we try Aug 13?

NANY is "New Apps for the New Year" -- an event we run on DonationCoder where we invite coders who hang out on the forum to release a new free program at the start of the new year -- or celebrate the new apps they've written in the last 12 months.

There are no winners or losers, everyone who participates gets a free mug commemorating the event.

You can find previous year's forums here: https://www.donation...ndex.php?board=329.0


Release a new app for the new year on Jan 1 and get a DC mug as your reward.
Here's the new alternate design from Hamradio.

Good to see someone getting an early start!
However: Note that the new NANY will be NANY 2021 -- I'll create the section soon :)

Thanks for the recommendation wraith, DC member hamradio was just reminding me about fakespot -- looks useful, I think I will install the browser extension  :up:

Cat and horse best friends:

I modified my setup to connect the wooden "boom" to the underside of the bookshelf such that I can just swing it away invisibly into the bookshelf when not in use.

I also use an elgato streamdeck for physical buttons that can do whatever you want, makes life a lot easier.
Looks very fun and useful if you are streaming to switch views.

I wonder if there is a tool for a mobile phone or tablet that one could use instead..

The 660 SHOULD be able to drive all 4 I believe, but I've never tried it.
The real annoyance with drying to drive all 4 from 1 display is that each card has a mixture of ports (dvi, hdmi, displayport), and I've had issues with monitors waking up weirdly when connected to some ports.. The current arrangement seems to work.

I have 2 nvidia display adapters, a GTX 1070 and a GTX 660.

The 660 is actually driving three of my displays, and the 1070 one.

Yeah it is kind of witchery.
For the green screen working area I use a green fabric on my desk:

I've seen vloggers use this approach to great effect, but usually its when they need to show some nice close up view of something being manipulated/painted.  I wish I had some excuse to use it!

The software I'm using currently is the commercial tool XSplit Broadcaster but I will also be trying out the open source alternative OBS (Open Broadcaster Software).
They both let you create "scenes" with different cameras and overlays and combine them into one virtual camera that another tool (such as Zoom) sees.

Today I decided to experiment a little with configuring a multi-camera setup with a top-down camera, for vlogging board games, etc.
With this setup I can switch between front and top down cameras, or combine them, and then easily disconnect the "boom" when not in use just swing away the boom out of view into the bookshelf when not in use (version 2).
