This is a generic placeholder thread for the Online Army Analyzer.

It will evolve over time.

My brain hurts, so I'm stopping on this one for today. A few things...

This uses a PHP session, which I'm 90% sure is cookie based. So if you have cookies turned off it might not be able to 'remember' the army you are building and thus will only ever show one die in the army and nothing in the analysis.

I also have not tested this in anything but firefox yet...

%favorable didn't make sense in an army perspective, so i replaced it with the 1 std dev values, ie 68% of the rolls will fit within that range. I also updated the graphic.

would the 2std and 3std make sense here? ie 95 and 99 % of rolls?

The only other thing I might do here is change the die count to be a text box to make it easier to enter... but I need to think about it.

once I've let this bake in a little while I'll add a link so that the generated product can be mass loaded into the 'army' and another button so you can clear the entire army easily.


once this interface is solid, being able to roll the army will be much simpler than what I've done over the last 4 hours...

fantastic now I might be able to build an army Smile
Love the 1 std (2std and 3 std don't make to much sense with my limited knowledge of statistics) the + and - work just great so textbox would be later release Iguess. Thanks for this wonderfull feature
A clear all button would be a nice to have feature to start a new army.

I've used this several times during games already. Highly useful indeed, and just as much fun. I agree on including a clear-button though. Oh, and the magic-results seemed to mystify me, though I'm not really sure as to how or why anymore.

the magic assumes you can always double your ID's. that may not be the 'right' way to do it, but if you start getting into ... this terrain or that or this action or melee or melee-counter or dragon...

I'd need an entire page per die.
