API ScriptAuthor: Chuz
Version: 1.25
Last Modified: 2021-02-13
Code: InitiativeTrackerPlus
Dependencies: None
Conflicts: None

Initiative Tracker Plus is derived from TrackerJacker written by Ken L. which was apparently related to The Aaron's TurnMarker. The author James C. (Chuz) has updated TrackerJacker to automatically detect token markers included in a lobby and allow their use in the status effects.

The intent is to continue supporting the script and update it with new features and functionality as they are requested or come to me.

Installation and Configuration

Script is now available on the one-click API installer.

Copy the script's code, available from the menu on the right and stored at Roll20's API GitHub Repository. Paste the code into a new script in your campaign's API Script Editor. Save the new script and it will be available inside your campaign.

Load Favorites previously saved via "!itp -saveFavs". Requires the handout "ITPFavsJSON" to exist and have properly exported data in the GM notes section.

!itp -setIndicatorImage
Replaces the current initiative indicator with a new image Note: The token will be removed from the field, along with any others with the name 'tracker_image'

  • Place the image you wish to use as the indicator image (animated turn indicator) on the play field (any layer). Please note, rollable tokens can be used for this as well.
  • Edit the new token and change it's name to 'tracker_image', save the change

!itp -setConfig [key]:[value] Changes various configuration values. Permitted keys and what they expect for values are:

  • trackerImgRatio - [2.25] - a decimal number, how much larger than the token it's highlighting that the turn indicator should be
  • rotation_degree - [15] - an integer number, how many degrees per step of the indicator animation that it rotates.
  • rotation_rate - [250] - an integer number, how many milliseconds between frames of the animation, smaller numbers are a faster animation but will load down roll20 more.
  • round_separator_initiative - [-100] - an integer number, displays the "initiative" for the round separator 100 will put it at the top of the round, -100 will put it at the bottom of the round.
