    Instant Dice - Disable Rolling Animation

    This extension is now only availible on DMs Guild here.

    This extension allows making any roll initiated by (double)-clicking or hotkey instant, by disabling rolling animation.
    You can still use animated roll, by drag-and-dropping the dice to the chat window.
    The setting can be enabled / disabled in options at any time on each individual client basis.

    Compatible with FGU and FGC.



    In case you find any bugs, please let me know.

    Versions:
    1.0: Initial release
    1.1: Removed unused hooks, should improve compatibility
    1.2: Implemented proper random seed setting

    Nice job! In my test games, this might be useful. But I suspect my players would mutiny if I tried using it in an active game.

    Does it roll or is it instant if you drag the roll to a token on a map?

    Read the second line of the first post.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here http://fgapp.idea.informer.com/

    Please also note, this is per client setting, so you can disable it for yourself as GM, but allow some of the players to enable it (only) for themselves

    Thanks for the info, both of you. Guess I should read more, and have more caffeine, before posting.

    I would be really surprised if there are any conflicts at all now.

    Unfortunately this extension leads to the same seed being used every time I restart FGU. So rolls on a table or saving-throws on a PC always return the sequence of roll results.

    I tried to add a seed using:

    Code:
    math.randomseed( os.time() )
    Unfortunately it seems that FGU does not support "os.time" (anymore)?!

  10. #10
    Turns out that os.time and os.clock are still supported by FGU, but using "math.randomseed" leads to dice rolls always returning the same one value. Unfortunately without seeding using this very useful extension is out of the question.

    Frankly, FGU should just offer an option to disable 3D rolling altogether, especially since its results are so much worse (I say broken) than /die rolling.
