Die roller feature

Post by Degrath » Fri Nov 22, 2013 2:57 am

There is currently a checkbox option in the die roller to ignore the highest roll and one for ignoring the lowest roll.

Would it be possible to get an option to "Use" only the highest or "use" only the lowest.

The rolls I am trying to make for example read "4D20L" from the Twilight:2013 Reflex system. meaning roll 4 twenties and use the lowest only.

I can make it work with the current system but with only 2 dice, any more than that it will only discount one die.

If this is already possible, please someone let me know what I am missing.

How about if you roll all the dice required by the roll, and then manually discard the unneeded results from the roll by clicking on the dice you wish to discard, as shown below? It means clicking three times, though.

Or you could just ignore all but the rightmost (or left-most) die, and skip clicking on dice completely.

Ok, thx for the feedback.I didnt realize that was possible. I can use that as a work around.

Any chance for future updates to get a "Use Lowest" option?

Not likely in BRPG v1.x, but if v2 ever gets made, sure thing. I've seen several requests along these lines.

I agree, it is good to know as a work around. Have you been using it that way and if so, do you like it?
