  • I have not played with it myself, but I think http://forum.nbos.com/discussion/986/hash-tables#latest may have the tools you need.
  • I don't think you can upload unless you have a registration code, and since IPP is free there is no registration code.... this may be why there are no IPP uploads since 2017. You can post them to the forum though.
  • I often make multiple tables rather than relying on passing parameters. Supposing you put the treasure type (e.g. "B") in a variable {$TreasureType}, rather than using a lookup for the type, you could call a table [@TreasureTable{$TreasureType}]. S…
  • If you called a lookup table five times, wouldn't it give you the same value each time? I guess it wouldn't if it in turn contained table calls or inline tables. Maybe the way to do that would be by passing a parameter with the number of calls so th…
  • Not sure about the reasons, but this appears to work: Table: test Link Note that I've replaced / with an escape code and also put it in the full html link rather than just a URL. Of course it doesn't quite work when it comes to loading that page …
  • I know it's pretty easy to run into limits based on variable types. A 4096 character limit would not surprise me. If there is a reason for it, it would be great if instead of just not processing the line, IPP would display something like "Line too l…
  • I don't know if you can use "if" that way. It's a mathematical operation that picks one or the other value, not a execution branch -- that's what "when" if for. This works: {DM=={1d12}}{DM==DM-5}{DM=={if({DM >= 1},DM,1)}}[#{DM} Slave] You could…
  • Previously reported: http://forum.nbos.com/discussion/170/bug-cant-use-more-than-4-prompts/p1 I think it's a limitation in the software. You might need to collapse some of your options. E.g. Prompt: Attacker Weapon {Bludgeon|Slash|Pierce} Slash P…
  • Thanks, Ed, for fixing it! Here's the .ipt file.
  • Hmm, whenever I try to attach the .ipt file, I get a "file is not allowed" message...? Did something change?
  • Ah, thanks. Known bug then...
  • Hmm, amusingly, double backslash also gets replaced by a single backslash on this forum.
  • I found \t and \a were still getting replaced, despite the double backslash. But apparently that's case sensitive, so when I changed the paths to \T and \A it was fine (and Windows doesn't care about the case of filenames).
  • Thanks! I probably wouldn't use anything larger than the Patrol for an encounter, but I could imagine using the larger units if I needed to generate a pile of military paperwork with some useful information hidden somewhere within....
  • I'm not using 5e but that looks great and easy to adapt to whatever value system you happen to be using. Thanks!
  • There's a download link for the .ipt at the very top of http://www.rpginspiration.com/tables/Fortune-Teller-Rider.ipt It's small but it's there! Not sure about the graphics. I leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine how many fortunes y…
  • Works fine for me too, Windows 7 and Firefox.
  • Yes! Drives me crazy too, especially because I tend to jump back and forth between IPP and Notepad++ (which uses ctrl-x for cut). I end up doing almost everything in Notepad++ instead because I won't mess it up. This could be a configurable option i…
  • That's a nice collection, thanks! In the Portuguese name generator, the table PortugueseFemaleFirstName is named incorrectly. Trivial fix, but as uploaded it's not working right.
  • Sometimes you can omit them for text, sometimes you can put the whole assignment in square brackets instead of curly brackets, but it seems inconsistent. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I will try to stick with curly brackets and single quotes an…
  • When do you need single quotes and when can you omit them? Inline assignments are giving me a lot of trouble in my present project. Is it something about the kind of data being assigned? E.g. if it contains symbols like #?
  • I'm not seeing the modulo operator in the help and can't get it to work (3.01b). Is it still there? It would be useful.
  • I might be done now. Arabic male: Atul Ajirmid Zakif Amam Aman Saqqaf Jalaymid Neji Arabic female: Malya Amjad Nurah Ahmim Nawra Amammam Jatha Muhal Finnish male: Valting Harmoni Kristu Linnen Sako Nurmen Kauku Nikani Finnish…
  • More! All new .ipt files added to the zip file attached to the original post. African male: Chiola Kojutso Ekena Aba African female: Sekaka Idola Themueze Chinindisi Ancient Greek male: Kosmeres Eutios Cleisthasmaus Anianes A…
  • Updated (use the link in the original post). The male and female generators now give both first and last names. (The surname generators are also still included.) I also added one based on German names. I improved my tools for making these so it i…
  • Gender was wrong for the tattoo descriptions for female dwarves. Fixed, use the link in the original message to get the updated version.
  • Installed that way. I see it does create those shortcuts, but it also shows up in the list of installed programs and puts IPP in a folder under an nbos folder which contains uninstallation data. That was a little weird so I just copied the IPP folde…
  • Good enough for me. I can make some shortcuts to put icons on the desktop and start menu with the portable install (which I'm guessing doesn't do that?). Thanks! BTW, the current help files don't seem to note where the generators are located at a…
  • It's not clear to me from your post what the breakpoints are supposed to be, but here is an example which will give you your first 2/3rds in black and the last third in red. There may be a more elegant way to make the correct number of dots (maybe w…
  • Made some structural improvements to the magic guilds .ipt (use link in original post) as I get more familiar with IPP. Should generate less nonsense now. Circle of the Northern Sign Argent Lava Conclave Eastern Council Vanguard of the Diamond…
