Multiple Roll Option - Functionality Request
Hey folks,

I don't know whether this has been asked for before - but if it has, an additional request will lend credence to it, I suppose.


Could the dice roller please be updated with a bit of functionality to allow 'multiple' rolls?

The reason being, in games where say 10-50 dice rolls are required per round, the constant rolling becomes very very tedious. A simple option to define X rolls would be greatly helpful!

I'd love you all forever.

Thanks

Archy

the  roller  can roll up to 30 dice at one time.. tell your players  to roll the number of dice  need..and  just 'tick off' the  rolls as you go along.

You can also roll several at a time using the upper righthand corner box of the dieroller where it says 'manually enter dice'. I'm not sure what limit it caps at (if there is one), but I use that a lot when I need to roll 6 or 7 rolls at a time.

I was going to say this as well. And you can tick a box to see the separate die results if needed.

I did yeah? I went back to test it..the  'drop down' went  to 100..so I tried  100 d20..it never rolled?

anyway?25  dice is plenty, if you need more then that, you have an arena game, not an RP  game.

I manually typed in "3d6" 50 times into the field... but it only rolled 25 sets of 3d6.

And I just tried "100d100" in the dropdown menu with "Record Each Die" turned on and got:
"There is a 20 dice limit when recording individual rolls."

So if you need 25 individual roll you can put them into the Manual field, or you can get 20 individual sets from the dropdown.

Re: Multiple Roll Option - Functionality Request
yeah, I got that "20 dice  limit'.as well... if I ever need that may roils?  I change something!

for my games  I do 90% of the rolls off board, so players  can concentrate of RP  and be surprised at the outcome..sometimes  I want them to roil for the simple fat their characters   are in a fight or something and I want them to have a  hand in it.

 Kids got me  an Echo Dot..I have alexa  roll for me sometimes as well

Re: Multiple Roll Option - Functionality Request
The problem is only when "recording" the individual die rolls.

The door roller shows ALL the die rolled, at the time they're rolled.

But it won't record the individual die results in the die roller if there are more than 20...

So if you need to keep the individual die numbers as well, just copy and paste the result agar the roll.

Result:
19:59, Today: Balik Giantborne rolled 342 using 100d6 ((5,6,4,3,5,5,3,2,1,3, 2,1,4,3,1,5,5,3,3,3, 1,6,6,2,3,3,3,2,5,5,5,5,3,5,4,2,5,4,2,5, 5,6,1,6,3,4,2,6,2,5, 3,2,6,4,5,3,4,2,3,6,4,1,2,6,4,3,3,6,3,2, 5,4,1,1,3,2,5,2,6,2, 1,1,2,1,5,4,2,1,2,4,6,5,3,2,1,3,3,3,6,1)).
