After a lot of rework, not to mention a lot of bug hunting, I think I have my Mythic GM Emulator program to a state where I can use it for a game. This program is based on the Mythic GM Emulator by the guys over at Word Mill Games. This idea started quite some time ago thanks to Risus Monkey. It has taken me so long simply because I had to put it down and work on other things for a while. When I finally picked it up again last week to work on, I just decided to throw out what I had and completely rework it. I built it in Java and am quite happy with the results. When I posted last week, I thought I would use a visual editor, but once again, switched back to just my normal way of coding. I’m happy with the results so far, and here are the features that the program currently has:
You are able to select your Chaos and Odds modify from the drop down box
Displays your target and exceptional targets
When you roll, if you trigger a random event it will roll one for you
You can roll random events as well
Exports all your results to a log file
As you can see, it is just a basic program, but everything has worked well so far in the testing I have done. I plan to play a solo game soon to really test it out, using Risus Monkey’s method for solo play.
While I am still planning on releasing my dungeon map, I have been sidetracked by school work, but fear not, I will have it out before the end of this month. However, now that I am finished with school for the semester, I find that I just want to play a game.
It’s always tough getting people to want to play the exact same thing that you want to, so I thought I would try out the Mythic GM Emulator by Word Mill Games. I have read some good solo adventures by Risus Monkey (you should read his stuff, it’s awesome) detailing an adventure he has been playing and it just sounds awesome.
I have already rolled up a character for my game, using Risus of course, and plan to run it soon. Right now, I am programming in the rolls in a small little Java app, that will hopefully make my life a little easier as I play. Of course, if I don’t finish it soon, I will have to just play without.
I’ll be sure to post my exploits here and let you know how it worked out.
