# Thread: This is how you use the Forum Dice Roller

1. ## This is how you use the Forum Dice Roller

In an effort to let the other "How do you roll dice?" thread die off, here is how you roll the dice and how to read the results. Just ignore the bolding, that is only there to prevent the forum from converting the text into an actual dice roll.

[roll]#d#[/roll]Diplays cumulative results. 1d6 gives the results of 1 six-sided die, for example.
[roll]1d6[/roll]gives you (1d6)[2]

[rollv]#d#[/rollv]Displays individual dice results, then cumulative.
[rollv]3d6[/rollv]gives you (3d6)[3][1][6](10)

[roll]#d#+X[/roll]Displays the cumulative results, with the added modifier (X) totalled into it.
[roll]3d6+5[/roll] gives you (3d6+5)[15]

[roll]#d#-X[/roll]Displays the cumulative results, with the added modifier (X) subtracted from it.
[roll]3d6-5[/roll] gives you (3d6-5)[5]

[roll]#d#b#[/roll]Diplays the cumulative results of the best of the dice (4d6b3, for example, would give cumulative results of the best 3 dice of 4 6-sided dice).
[roll]4d6b3[/roll] gives you (4d6b3)[15]

[rollv]#d#b#[/rollv]DOES NOT WORK! It only gives the cumulative result of all the dice, not the best # of dice. You have to do the math yourself if you want to see the best-of results, or remove the v from the roller.

[roll]#d#b#+X[/roll]DOES NOT WORK! It gets ignored.

Negatives results are possible if you give a modifier on the end that can cause a negative. The dice themselves cannot give you negative numbers, even if you were to type in d-40 or something. [roll]1d-40[/roll] will do nothing.

d0 always give you 1. 6d0 gives you 6, and so on.

Spaces are NOT your friend in the code. They will result in the whole lot being ignored.
[roll]3 d 6 + 4[/roll]

Feel free to use this thread to test roll, to keep it bumped for others to find and use and maybe learn from.

Ok, ignore the above post. Not sure why it gave (1d6)[4] results. I will repost here.

I'd guess that's because you previewed the post. Previewing a post with dice rolls makes the rolls not work.

Rather than bolding random things, when you need the forum to leave code as code use [noparse][/noparse] tags. Like so: [roll0].

5. ## Re: This is how you use the Forum Dice Roller

Er, ok, apparently noparse tags only work on half of the die-rolling process.

1d6: (1d6)[4]
noparse 1d6: [roll1]
roll0: (1d6)[4]
noparse roll0: [roll0]
