Hello all,

As I’m getting back at tabletop rpgs, I was thinking that arduboy is probably the best tool to have always a customizable dice roller in the pocket to play rpg on the go anywhere.

So here is a fast and small application to roll dice in a rpg flavor, i.e.: you can customize the formula/expression for the roll.
Some features:

  • dice multiplier: [1, 20] (i.e.: the number of dice rolled at the same time)
  • dice types: d2, d4, d6, d12, d20, d100
  • mod value: [-20, 20]
  • use D-Pad (arrows on desktop) to move the cursor and change the dice roll expression values
  • press A to roll (hold A to shake the odds)
  • you can recall/loop up to the 5 last roll expressions with B

Thanks, I already looked at this one.
I wanted to make a faster application (no start screen, no animation, no sound, turn on - roll - turn off) and more suited to rpg dice expressions with the mod value.

For future reference, ‘dice’ is already plural.
Technically ‘die’ is the singular term,
but these days it’s fallen out of favour so most people use ‘dice’ as an uncountable noun.
Apparently ‘die’ is still used a lot in tabletop games though.
(Originally it was ‘dy’ and ‘dys’ in middle English (spoken somewhere between 1066 and 1500).)
