View Full Version : feature request: keyboard activated dice rolling

August 31st, 2005, 07:05
I like throwing the virtual dice but I am already getting tired of using the mouse. And sometimes when I use the mouse I screw up and the dice just falls flat which is frustrating. Othertimes I mess up and the dice rolls outside the chat window.

How about holding down and releasing a key to throw the dice inside the chat window automatically? The longer you hold down the key the harder the dice are thrown. For example, if you just tap a key the dice barely roll.

I do realize that I can type "/die 1d20" to get an autoroll but I don't get the cool virtual dice. The method suggested above differs from using the text line because it still includes rolling the virtual dice.

How about the ability to grab dice, get the number you want and drag and drop them to the presets along the bottom, that way you could set up specific rolls that you might do repeatedly.
Not ran a game yet (first is tomorrow), so not sure, but wouldnt you rather have them roll in the chat window?
