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...

Similarly...
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

My group hates the password feature of nicknames.

Half the names we were using have been locked down.

None of us pass worded the names, but we need passwords to use them.

I've been getting this screen when going back to the dice room: http://i.imgur.com/bb8OX28.png

As far as I can tell, these rooms stall out rolz on my end and do absolutely nothing. I can still reach my normal dice rooms if I manually type the url in the search bar, but it's still kind of annoying and hopefully you can do something about this before it becomes a problem for other users. | reply

Udo

I love parsers/lexers! If you're interested in the rolz parser, I have pasted the relevant sections here: https://pastebin.com/CTKxS3E9

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 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nlqv6NtBXcA | reply

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

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

1d6:6+4S8

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)

i.e.

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
Udo

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
Lee

The following seems to work ok:

1d6:6S4

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
Udo

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

Mar 20th 03:22
Lee

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

Hello!

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

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.

Seems there might be a bug of some sort? | reply

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 04th 08:47
Udo

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 ;)

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.

ThePlatinumPaladin

As the creator/owner of a Dice room, I wish I had more admin functionality. Specifically, I want exclusive controls over things like ignore, kick/ban, and other tools to keep the rest of my players in line. Sometimes, they really act like children.

Basically, with the Room that I was playing in, everybody had full access to all the powers, from generating NPCs to muting people. Somehow, *I* the GM got muted! | reply

Jan 19th 02:52
Udo

That's not what Rolz is designed for. There is no kick/ban, there is no mute either (don't know how you got that impression, maybe they were trolling you or you had connectivity problems). You can just password-protect the room and give the password only to the people you like.

Fundamentally, Rolz is not designed for adversarial groups, it's designed for groups of friends roleplaying together. You can prevent outsiders from joining by simply choosing an obscure room name, and you can choose a password. That should be more than enough for this scenario.

If you're using Rolz for some other purpose, you're on your own. I'm not going to try and be all things to all people. | reply

Jan 19th 03:03
ThePlatinumPaladin

That's the thing...They are all friends, who just get too tangled up with each other. It's a mix of confusion and frustration among them, so if I as GM can not do anything to quell such disruptions and infighting, I am concerned. | reply

Jan 19th 03:10
Udo

It's easy to create a new account and rejoin though, a ban or kick command wouldn't be effective at all.

I've been thinking about a feature where you as the room owner could specify a list of people who are allowed to be there. That might help in your case, but more fundamentally I think this is a social problem. You as the GM are in the unique position to make them understand you're not going to GM for them if they keep disrupting everything (the same would hold true for a physical session).

I'm going to build this whitelist feature though, maybe it could help in cases like this. | reply

Jan 19th 03:16
ThePlatinumPaladin

A whitelist would be kinda nice, but I was thinking of reserving most of the commands for the room owner, or whoever registered the room. That would help a lot, I think. Again, if things get too out-of-hand, then I just leave and then nobody gets to play.

No question, this is a social problem. But if all 4 or so players keep monkeying around with the NPC generator, for example, that can get seriously irksome when trying to conduct my game. If there were a way to toggle something so that only the room "owner" could use such functions like the NPC generator, that would go a long way in helping me. | reply

Jan 19th 03:18
Udo

I'll think about that, but I'm also not going to break things for other groups who might rely on these commands being available. In any case though, it sounds like your players will probably find a way to disrupt your session by any means.. | reply

Hi Rolz

I believe what you built here is special. A place for Dnd players to come and enjoy each others company. The private room function is great and the dice rolling skill are fantastic.

A few things I have noticed which will make the site a lot better.

1) Is there a way to privately chat with a player via the site if they are in the game room with us - Player to player, GM to player or player to GM.

2) Joining a room can be really difficult. Perhaps there needs to be inbox type system where an admin can invite a player to a room and the player can join via clicking a link in a message?

3) Linking with other players to start a game is difficult. Along with a general lobby, perhaps considering instead of having a forum for game searches, have an extra lobby with for players looking to join a game.

4) Private messaging in a lobby. I am not sure if your able to use this function yet, however the ability to private message others is a must.

I know your probably wondering who this guy is. Choose to take on my advice, or don't, I just know the potential this site has. When you look at OCTGN (card game platform) and Virtual playtable (another card game platform) these are quite user friendly. I know this can be great so please keep going in developing the site. | reply

Thanks a lot for this site! It's very useful.
---------------
But a lot more shortcuts will be much better. Say separate tab with 20 (or even more) lines like 4 lines in "Recent Chat Lines" (or even 2 columns of twice shorter lines) will be very nice.
---------------
Easy way to copy line in clipboard will be also nice. Say button near link on embed image.
---------------
Also 2 additional commands can be useful:
repeatN (or rN) - repeat previous roll N times (only roll, not conditions)
skipN (or sN) - skip next N groups of text [roll]

example:
axe attack [d20+10 1-17=skip3] crit check [repeat] damage [d12+10] or crit [r3; skip] damage [d12+10]
"repeat" here mean "d20+10"; "r3" will be "repeat 3 d12+10"

on 1-17 text in chat will be like:
axe attack [d20+10 1-17=skip3 = 22] damage [d12+10 = 13]
on 18-20:
axe attack [d20+10 1-17=skip3 = 29] crit check [repeat = 21] damage [d12+10 = 11] or crit [r3; skip = 38]
---------------
And last one option to hide text of command will be also good for long conditions:
"hide" (or h) - hide all text of command after it

example:
axe attack [d20 h 1-10=cancel 18-20=x2] damage [h d12+10]

will looks like:
axe attack [d20 = 2] damage [= 0]
axe attack [d20 = 11] damage [= 17]
axe attack [d20 = 19] damage [= 32] | reply

I wonder if it's possible to add variables into the dice rolling?

For instance, with Call of Cthulhu you would have a skill value which you must roll below to succeed and roll 20% or less of in order to impale (or crit).

i.e. something like [d100 skill=78 (skill/5)=x2 (>skill)=cancel] damage [d10+2] | reply

I have the same question as spreader. Is it possible to remove chat room log?
I created dice room which room name is very important to me. I tested dice rolls and now a chat is quite messy. I was wondering is it any chance to remove old logs? Because the name of the room must be the same as is now.

Thank you in advance for your reply,

I have a feature request that seems like it would be fairly simple to implement. I don't know if you are familiar with MUCK/MUX/MUSH gaming (online, text-based roleplaying servers that have been around since the Early Pliestocene era of the Internet), but on such games, there is an [email protected] <text>' command which emits <text> visible to everyone in the room, but without prepending the player's name. It is very useful for such things as GM scene-set poses and NPC poses, as well as player poses that don't start with either their character's name or 'CharacterName says,'...

For obvious reasons, on this site it would be undesirable for similar poses to be actually anonymous, but perhaps there could be a command which would emit text to the room with either the person emitting's name in brackets at the end, or, better yet, with an unobtrusive mark at the end that would reveal the emitter's name when one's mouse is hovered over it? | reply

Hello!

I'm fairly new to this website, and trying to set up a room in order to host a little online RPG event this next weekend for some people. For that it's very important that each player can roll privately, and only have to disclose it when asked for it.

I tried using the /self code in order to roll privately, but it seems despite using #1d6 ;1d6, or just 1d6 all the outcomes were 0. Maybe someone can explain to me how this is supposed to work? | reply

Hi,
Great website and service as well, really useful, making all my games so fun. =)

So here's my question, is there a way to count rolls that are equal or lower than a value,
as with the basic success based-roll "E" (i.e 1d100E50 which count how many roll will be equal or greater than 50)
but in the other way, that would count how many are actually equal or lower than the chosen value ?

Thanks for everything. =) | reply

Probably not so much a bug as a feature that has been taken too far, a username I have been using for a long time (Michelle, the name of my character for the campaign we are playing) is now passworded.
Perhaps instead of passwording a name across all servers, have the passwords be room specific. | reply

I disagree that it's a feature taken too far. Rolz always had password-less accounts, and I'm trying to keep it that way. It's essentially like an IRC server. If you really care about a nick, you should register it ;) | reply

Is there a way currently to do Hackmaster 5e penetrating rolls? (That's an exploding die, but you subtract 1 from the exploded rolls, and d20 explodes to a d6 while d100 explodes to d20.)

Examples:

* Rolling d6, initial roll is 6, second roll is also 6, third roll is 3, final total is 6 + 5 [6-1] + 2 [3-1] = 13
* Rolling d20: initial roll is 20, second roll is 6, third roll is 6, fourth roll is 2, final total is 20 + 5 + 5 + 1 = 31. | reply

On the front page, I enter my username and password, and I enter the name of the room I have been using. The room name uses both uppercase and lowercase letters, and it has a : in it, as well. There is an option for entering a 'room password', which is new, but I ignore that because I have never used a room password before.

I then 'join'.

Instead of bringing me to the room I typed in to join, the first time it created a room using the first two letters of the room name I entered, and now it persistently brings me to the created room, even when I try to /join the originally-intended room from the new room, or retype the room name from the front page.

The room name I have been trying to reach has never had issues before, even with the mixed-case name and the : . I have attempted joining the original room in both Chrome and Firefox, and I have typed in the room name by hand instead of via Autofill or similar 'shortcuts'.

I hope this helps with recreating or pinpointing the issue! If there is more specific information you need, let me know? | reply
