  1. Droid Brains (Star Wars)

    It could be as simple as a Radio Perception/Transmission connection between the droid and the ships computer...all you're really doing is offloading the astrogation calculations to the droid. You can go down fancier (and more expensive) roads and experiment with telepathy and mind control...seems like overkill though,
  2. It should be possible to add in a portrait...let me play around with it a bit and see what I can do 😀
  3. Conditionally show ECV?

    Is there anyway for me to show ECV only if the character was created using the 5th edition rules? This is for a template that I'm working on.
  4. Sweet! I'll update the file notes.
  5. Thanks 😀 I'm not sure why but Chrome wouldn't allow me to open the file properly. I think it has something to do with the way Android is passing the file into Chrome...just a guess though. The HTML viewer is not ideal (I'd much rather just use Chrome too) but it works.
  6. That's interesting, I didn't know that. I figure that a better random number generator isn't going to hurt anything per si but I could shave off 7k from the file size without the MT lib...
  7. I looked at the die roller you supplied and I really like it although it is using Math.random()...I'll probably switch that to use the Mersenne Twister lib in the codebase. I think I may replace the "Free Form Roll" tool with it to let people really make some unusual rolls and roll combinations using a text input field. I will probably retro-fit the first 2 tools to use this lib as the back end but keep the frontend the same. I think I should add a stun multiplier slider to my damage roll UI now that I'm thinking about it...
  8. Nice, I'll look at incorporating it into the app.

    Too bad Good luck with your search

    6e_mobile.hde View File This export template will create a HTML5 mobile app that you can use on your phone/tablet/laptop/PC. I've included a dice roller that is suitable for use in your sessions as a dice replacement...I've ran a session where we used nothing but this app and a pencil and paper and it actually worked out pretty well. In some cases (particularly around calculating damage) it's actually faster than rolling all those dice and calculating BODY, STUN, KB, etc. You can use this on a regular PC it is really meant to be run on a mobile device so I would encourage you to try it out that way. You can also use the developer tools in Chrome to simulate a mobile device dimensions by hitting F12 and hitting ctrl+shift+m...pick the device you want to use. You could also just shrink your window down real small Usage Windows and Linux Install the attached .hde file as you would normally Export your character using the new template Android (Option 1) Export the character using the new template Save the webpage to your Android device Install a HTML viewer like Visor HTML Browse to the saved webpage from step 2 in your HTML viewer (important - open the file from within the app itself, there's some issue with loading it from the file system that's beyond my ability to fix) Android (Option 2) Export the character using the new template Save the webpage to your Android device Install a webserver (I recommend kWS Server) Start your server Browse to the saved webpage from step 2 Mac I'm not a Mac guy but I imagine the usage would be similar to Android...sorry!

  13. Latest update: Dropped the Math.random() calls in favour for random numbers generated by a Mersenne Twister library Added a "Roll Again" button to the "3d6 Roll" so you can make multiple checks quickly Tweaked the spacing on the main page so it should display better on an iPhone
  14. Another update. Moved the die rolling menu to the main page so it's easier to get to (one less touch/click) Added a logo to the main page Reorganized the damage result page so it's easier to read Damage roll results now show the STUNX, BODYX and NSTUN intelligently
  15. I just updated my export file template...all dependencies are now embedded in the file. If you want you can now view this file without installing a webserver on a mobile device. You will need to install HTML viewer like Visor HTML and open your saved file using that app.
