Thanks for all the input everyone … I think I've completed round 1 of my entirely over-complicated roller, but it serves it's purpose at the moment.
So, if possible … if any of you can use the OpenOffice spreadsheet and would be up for me sending it to you, I'd be interested in some feedback as well as suggestions. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
(I suppose you could put your email here as well, but whatever you're comfortable with)
Any help would be appreciated.
If you're wondering …
Basically, you type in how many of each dice you want in the pool and it will calculate the rolls for you. Each time you put a number in and press 'Enter', it will roll the dice, but there is also a Roll Button as well.
It is set up to allow up to 7 of each color dice,except the d10 which it allows up to 2 (if you put 8 or more of any particular color, you'll get a "Too Many [dice]", where [dice] is it will say Ability, Difficulty, etc.)
It automatically takes into consideration the icons that get canceled out, for example, if the hidden rolls end up being 4 Successes and 2 Failures … it will show Success 2 (If desired, I can show the entire rolls if people would prefer to see everything that shows up on the dice)
It does include Triumph as Success (Despair as Failure, as well), but has a seperate spot to see how many Triumph/Despair that were actually rolled
1d10 will give a number from 0 - 9 / 2d10 will give a number from 01 - 100
Also, while the Sheet is protected so that only the number of dice can be edited, but there is no password if you feel like either fiddling with it or taking a peak at the rediculously stupid calculations I put into it (I'm sure there must be an easier way, but I don't know it and once I got started I just had to roll with it)
Finally … I did not consider (yet) to include the ability to do large-scale battles, however, I like the idea and it would be possible to implement, either allowing more dice to be used or even having a separate grouping for just such a thing. But that's for another day (for now).
