Special die rolling commands

Post by neofax »

I am having a problem getting multiple die roll commands to work together. I tried rolling 4d6r3e and I get 4 everytime. Should this work or not?

From what I can recall, back when I started using MT, you can only use dice expressions that come after XdY exclusive from each other; meaning, you can't do XdYr3e, only Xdyr3 or XdYe. It's either that or some expressions work while some don't. After encountering that early on, I had to customize a macro to take care of exploding dice and re-rolling on certain values.

Well then I will just have to watch what I roll and reroll of the roll is not above 3.

I'm sure someone could make a text parser to do what you want it to do.

In fact that seems a fun challenge.
