Dice Roller Plugin?
« on: October 14, 2016, 01:43:33 PM »
Is there currently any dice roller plugin available (or currently in development) that works with IceChat v. 9? We are running a D6 gaming channel on IRC, and I really like using IceChat - however, without a viable dice roller, I have to resort to using Adiirc, or some other client that does. Would be very interested in knowing more about future dice roller plugin for the most current version of IceChat. :)

I think I had started one, but never finished it.
There was a script for IceChat 7 that did something like this:

!dice 3 6 <- rolls a 6-sided die 3 times

Are you looking for something like that?

Yes, something like that - one that could also allow for use of modifiers (+1 and +2), so !dice 3 6 +2<- rolls a 6-sided die 3 times and adds 2 to the end result.

Ah , well then, now we are getting fancy.

Pidgin has a working Dice plug-in that comes /w Purple Plug-ins Pack. I've used it & it's nice. Also Pidgin was built entirely in C++ so it's breakneck fast! I've waited a _long_ time for the Text Replacement plug-in which is a lot like Spell Bee Chrome extension but it's not done yet & I got tired of waiting! Basically corrects typos & allows for shortcuts. Also the Dice plug-in has an option to choose between inputs but I can't figure out how to do that.

I went back to using Ice Chat. It was just a smiley pack, Window Positions Manager & newfound GTK+ theme collection that got me into it. Anyway Ice Chat has my mega list of servers!

Ambient Vibe never responded as to how the modifiers work, so I'll just put that on the back burner.
I found Pidgin fine for the all in one aspect, but as an IRC client, it lacked.
