I’ve completed the work to allow you to show a grid on top of the maps that you import. It means you can grab a map from anywhere, even just a quick photo, and have your minis moving around on it as a battlemat in seconds. You can turn the grid overlay on and off via the Settings screen, just like the “Snap to Grid” option. At this stage the grid is square, hex grid support will be coming soon.
I need to wait until the Apple App Store has approved the latest version before I can update the Android one on Google Play. This is because they don’t work with older versions in a multiplayer game that don’t know about the grid. If you try to join a game created by an older version of the software that can’t show the grid, it won’t see the game. By releasing both versions at the same time I hope to avoid any confusion or frustration that this may cause. Lately the Apple approval process has only taken 4 or 5 days and the last few updates have gone straight through without a hitch so it won’t be long.
Now it’s time for me to start on… duh duh daaa! Fog of war!
