Aria, the more complex if then else you want will have to come when we do javascript integration. We have been talking about this for some time, but it just hasn't gotten to the top of the list. My intention is to be very careful with how many things get added to the parser from a language perspecti...

We don't support that yet. You need looping of some sort which we have been talking about lately, but before that we need more boolean logic.

You can. 4d6 is just a short form of roll(6, 4), so you can put variables or prompting expressions in that.

Does that solve what you need?

I may have the order of parameters inverted.

Code: Select all

Try roll(4, 6) for 4d6 instead.

I added support for the Math function log and ln into the parser. The next version of MapTool will be released with the new parser.

Here is a crontab entry I have.

Code: Select all

0 0 * * * /usr/bin/find /u01/oradata/logs -mtime +15 -exec rm {} \;


At midnight every day, find files older than 15 days and remove them.

What version of OS X are you running?

We are looking at the possibility of upgrading to Java 6 and our biggest concern is the availability of Java 6 for the Mac. Java 6 is currently only available as a beta for OS X and it will only be supported on Mac OS X Leopard. Please respond to the poll ONLY if you are a RPTools user on the Mac.

Regrettably this is not currently possible in the existing engine, because of the recursive nature of the rolling.

We could easily add a custom function for it. What system is this for?

I am not completely clear on how paranoia rolling works from your description, but I will take a stab at it. This would be best done as a custom function because of the nature of the data being entered. But, if you wanted to do it in MapTool as is, something like this comes close. Create a table wit...

You said, "If I'm winning I may get an advantage die".

How do you determine when you do and don't? Do you have to compare the first vector against something?

Yep, got the patch and it is on my short list of things to do. I changed my computers at work and at home and so don't have my development environment setup anywhere right now, so probably won't get it applied until this weekend. From my quick glance at the patch it seems real clean, so I don't see ...

I noticed that recently. I suspect it may have something to do with a change they made in Java 6, because it worked when I was developing on java 5. I will take a look at it further and see if I can make it work again, but won't be able to get to it for a while. As for submitting a patch, yeah, a pr...

Ok, I have to confess... 253 of those other accounts are actually mine. I get a kick out of coming on every once in awhile with a new identity and pretending not to know how to setup port-forwarding. Man, that just *never* gets old. Nice, definitely a laugh-out-loud moment. The people at work are l...
