Random Dice Roller
Random Dice Roller will allow you to generate a random dice roll for your RPG needs. The program is set up so that you can enter the number of dice to roll as well as how many sides the dice must have. Most often dice will need to be of various sizes. Most RPG's use 6 sided dice as well as 12, 20, 10, 8, 4, sometimes 100 sided. We've even seen a 34 sided die!!
Operating Systems: Win9x/XP/Vista/7/8/10
To generate a random number we will use the example of 2d6 (two 6 sided dice.) simply enter the number 2 in the box next to the words 'number of dice'. Then enter the number 6 in the box next to 'number of sides' and click on the roll button. It's that easy the results will appear in the box that has the words "total rolled" If you don't like the result just click on roll and it will re-roll the dice for you automatically.
The limit for both the number of sides and number of dice to 100 that will give you a lot of room to work with. In simpler terms you have a limit of 100 d100's you can roll at once. We haven't yet seen a need for anything higher than a d100 so it made sense to us to limit it there.
As far as we can tell this will meet all your dice rolling needs except unless you are looking for something that will fudge the numbers to make you happy.. but you could always just click on roll again to find the number you are happy with.
Since we have only played MechWars, and Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. We cannot guarantee for 100 percent certainty that this is compatible with all of the existing RPG's out there.. However, from the games we've seen, it should be.
What the buttons do!
If you have entered a number between 1 and 100 in the first two boxes, then clicking on this button will create the random number and place it in the third box.
This allows you to copy the "total rolled" result to the clipboard. We decided to offer this ability. We are not fully sure why, but here it is..
Clicking on Clear All will do just that, it will clear all the boxes, making it easier for you to enter different numbers for different dice.
Now that we think about it, this is sort of redundant.. By clicking here the program will clear the "total rolled" box.
Ah yes.. the ever loving About button.. if you click here you will be taken to the screen that has all the important information about the program.
We always feel a little silly explaining this one.. It allows you to exit/leave/quit the program. Gee that was simple wasn't it... (groan)
