Bug with explosive dices

xxx rolls 10d10s4 = 8 ( (2 28 8 7 4 8 2 8 8 16 → 8 success(es) against 4) )

But it is 11 successes!
28 = 10 + 10 + 8 (3 successes non 1)
Same thing with 16 | reply

for some reason when i type i start to stutter, for lack of a better word. i guess an equivalent would be like "lagging" but it's more of a slow stutter.
and it only happens when I type. | reply

A lot of rooms was created aumaticaly in my acount and comands with [] dont work now. How to solve this? | reply

Whatchamacallthems don't work for me any more. Inline dice rolls? The ones where you do [1d20], they just turn up as empty messages when I hit enter.

I guess I am also gonna use this time to test if forum post rolls work for me [roll 1d20] | reply

PS - Thanks for deleting certain conversations. I was in a very black head space when I started reading some of those truly horrific trolls, and I engaged with the intent to vent my spleen back at them.

In the end, it was stupid, as I should have just ignored them. They did make very tantalizing targets, though.

Regardless, not only do I respect your decision to delete said conversations, I am grateful for it.

And for this site. I am impressed it has a way to handle Prowlers & Paragons style dice rolls. | reply

Hi, first of all thanks for the effort in keeping Rolz going. The servers seem to be up again but I still cannot see my dice rooms, just some symbols - when I try to connect I get a host error on the Rolz side. Would be great if you can look into this. Thanks! | reply

Aug 03rd 13:04

MacCthulhu, I can't reproduce this... :/ are you able to connect to the Lobby for example? | reply

Hi, for a couple of weeks now the dice rolls have been intermittently lagging for a while, and the whole left side log disappears/crashes multiple times during our two-hour sessions. Several minutes later it will reappear, only to crash again ten minutes or so later. This happened this evening, 7/20/17, between 9:30-11:30, as well as 7/17 and the previous weeks 7/13 and 7/10 (all between 9:30-11:30). I'm hoping this can be fixed, as the two different groups who I play with on Mon and Wed nights enjoy rolz but the situation is such that we may turn to another roller. | reply

Excuse me, my saved rooms have all become :-1 rooms, and although im able to access some of them via logging in manually, and it 'saves' it as a new one, it resets it to :-1 rooms, This is distressing since apparently its not the first time this has happened to people on this site, because what if you cant remember the password for said room anymore?

Love the site as my tabletop baseball league uses it.

We've noticed in the last few weeks we are seeing the timeout III while waiting for a result more often then we have in the past. We use to see it maybe three times in a hour and now it seems to be happening every ten rolls or so. I wasn't sure if there was performance issue or change. | reply

in response to this "rolls 6D10L4 = 24 (low 4 of 9; 8; 8; 5; 8; 3 = 24)" roll, i believe its saying "lowest 4 of the following," it just so happens 9 is right next to 'of' so if you read it in a certain way...

(low 4 of 9; 8; 8; 5; 8; 3 = 24)

and some fixing of grammar.

(lowest 4 of, 9; 8; 8; 5; 8; 3 = 24)

it becomes much easier to read, it'll do that for all high/low rolls, as for your other inquiries i dunno | reply

I and my friend roleplay a lot on mobile, and it is incredibly inconvenient to write a pose only to lose it because you were timed out. (This happens at least when the phone screen goes dark.) This doesn't happen on desktop, obviously, so: Is there any way for us to prevent this from happening, and if not, might you fix it? | reply

My dice rooms are missing. They've been replaced with a :-] symbol that leads to blank pages. I use Rolz for my PbP's, and so I've got links in other forums that take me back to the rooms. But, once I'm there I still can't edit. | reply

May 24th 19:22

I have the same issue; actually, your rooms are actually labelled ":-1" and not ":-]", I hope this clarification helps with debugging. I was able to access my old rooms by typing<room name> (without "<" and ">"), they are on top of all the bugged rooms now and can be accessed. Hope it helps you or anyone having the same issue, for now. Be aware that some special characters are coded in html. | reply

I'm having weird results in the dice roller.

This example:
Lowest 4 of 6D10: #6D10L4

Renders this result:
rolls 6D10L4 = 24 (low 4 of 9; 8; 8; 5; 8; 3 = 24)

Notice that there is no reason there should be 5 rolls shown nor any reason for it to say Lowest 4 of 9. It should be the lowest 4 of 6 rolls...

2d20+5 renders this way:
rolls 2d20H+5 = 23 (high 1 of 18; 9 = 18 + 5)

And 5+2d20H1 renders this way:
rolls 5+2d20H1 = 17 (5 + high 1 of 12; 11 = 12)

I'm totally confused. Has this thing lost the ability to pick H and L rolls or at least how to interpret them? Is there some syntax I'm confusing? I've tried # and - as the command and I have tried different leading spaces and nothing has changed. | reply

Jun 08th 07:50

You used unsupported syntax. I know, it's ugly. There's going to be a new parser eventually. For now you'll just have to enter correct codes ;) | reply

I'm actually working on a parser for my Final Year Project at Uni, inspired by the one here; that's why I was testing it. I was trying to get insight on how you are doing it. :P | reply

Apr 13th 21:57

I love parsers/lexers! If you're interested in the rolz parser, I have pasted the relevant sections here:

It's basically tokenize() and then recursive descent, which creates an AST-like structure that then gets executed directly through an interpreter.

If you want to have a look at a good parser in C, I highly recommend checking out the Lua language source code (not LuaJIT, but the interpreted version), it's very clean.

If you want to write something elegant, also check out Top Down Operator Precedence - here's a talk by Crockford about it | reply

Mar 21st 14:44

Is there a power-user command to do the following:

For Successes with additive re-roll... The problem is that say with a 6 Sided Die with additive re-rolls will make some target numbers identical i.e. TN 6 and 7. If you roll a six you are guaranteed to get at least a 7 on the re-roll. Is there a power-user command to subtract 1 from the result before the re-roll? So if I roll a 6, the system should calculate the re-roll as 5+1d6.. This way I could end up with a 6 final result if I roll a 1. In this way a target number of 7 is no longer guaranteed. If it adds twice (rolls 6 then rolls 6 again) it should calculate the third re-roll as 11 + 1d6 and so on. | reply

Mar 20th 03:09

When using the roller with the command below it seems to ignore the dice type and roll d10s instead:


I'm playing Traveller and need to roll 2d6, add them together and then add a modifier and compare the total to a difficulty number (usually 8) to determine success. It would be especially good if the command could give the "effect" of the roll as well (total rolled including modifiers minus 8)


Engineering (jump drives) 1
Education 1

A roll to fix the jump drive would be 2d6+2 with a target number of 8.

A character that rolls 4 and 3 therefore has a total of 9 which is a success with a +1 effect.

Is this possible? | reply

Mar 20th 03:15

The S code has d10 as its standard die. But 2D6S8 won't work for you either, since that would give you the number of successes against an 8. You can't express the Traveler rolls with Rolz dice codes right now. You can do 2d6+4 and manually check against the difficulty, but everything else would require a new code or scripting support (which I'm working on). | reply

Mar 20th 03:17

The following seems to work ok:


I just have to change the target number based on the modifiers ... not ideal but will do until you have new code in place :) | reply

Mar 20th 03:18

Isn't that more confusing than manually comparing against the target number? Well, whatever works for you I guess ;) | reply

Mar 20th 03:22

I thought it might be at first, but when you have to do 50 medic checks for low-berth passengers at every planet you jump to "#repeat 50 126:6S4" and then just count how many 0's there are to see how many didn't make it is much easier :) | reply

First I'd really like to say that this site is our group's go-to for dice rolling. It's simple, quick and easy, and keeps everyone accountable. You've done an amazing job with it and I hope that it continues to grow~

Second, I was curious (as I hadn't found an answer yet) if there was a way to delete rooms you don't use. I have three made but we only use one and it's bugging me ^u^;; If not, will there be in the future?

Thank you so much,

Kat | reply

Feb 28th 06:16

Since the room names are secret, there is currently no way to delete a room. However, I introduced the concept of room ownership a while back, so it's possible if people really want it. Maybe it's time ;) | reply

Feb 28th 08:12

Okay, not sure it's working right yet, but I made a new command to close rooms (see Dice Room help page for more info). | reply

Mar 04th 23:04

I tried it out, and yep, it does close the room, but it's still visible in my dice room list.

Hi there,

I'm having a bit of a bother with whitelist. I used one to test it out and see how it worked, and it seemed to be working okay, but then I tried to turn it off since some of the people using the room couldn't get on. I figured it'd be an easy "/room whitelist=" and it showed up a line saying whitelist is off, but now the people just keep getting tossed to the lobby. I tried whitelisting (and turning it back on, of course) them using their registered nicks, but that just kept giving them an "You're not on the whitelist" result.

I understand that you needed to discontinue the legacy rooms, but is there anything when rolling dice in the new room that the base 1d20 or whatever you last typed will stay? It's really annoying when in the middle of combat and have to keep adding a hashtag and type it all out. My players keep messing up and as a GM when you are dealing with lots of monsters it's really annoying to not be able to just backspace and add something new. Maybe you can add settings? My default then could be selected on the rolling mode or something so it was like it was in legacy. | reply

Feb 04th 08:43

Lera: go to the "Tools" tab when inside your dice room. Check the option "clear input with # after die roll", that should emulate the old room's behavior. | reply

Feb 02nd 20:50

I absolutely love this site, its EXACTLY what ive been looking for for so long! I also love the medieval touch, adds more... feel.. anyway would really love if you could somehow make all this accessible through a mobile device for obvious reasons or maybe even a watered down version... i know so many people that would jump at it if and when that happens | reply

Feb 04th 08:47

Phemzy: well, the site should run okay on mobile, too, if it doesn't please let me know. If you're talking about an app that has offline rolling capabilities: that existed at one point, both for Android and iOS. However, it was expensive and tedious to maintain the app, especially since almost nobody bought it. I think it was like 20 sales total for 1.99 each over more than two years! App store membership alone costs me more than a hundred bucks per year ;)

So no, not going into that rathole again... | reply

The Laughing Stranger

Hello! My group and I have been using this site for years. Thanks for hosting the legacy rooms as long as you have. I am trying to move things over to the current dice roll rooms, but I am having some difficulties. We use a d10 pool system and I would like to see the individual numbers rolled, but the 'auto expand results button' does not appear to be working. Toggling it does not result in any change to the displayed dice, before or after the button is used. Not sure if it is a bug or if I am missing something. | reply

Hey, Udo. I used your legacy rooms a lot, for a long time. Firstly I would like to thank you for maintaining them for so long. You have been very good to a lot of the older users, especially my old group, and I would like you to understand just how appreciated that is.

That being said, I have to ask you to clarify something: when the legacy rooms go down, will the logs of said rooms still be accessible? Or will those also be going down?
