RPG: Brute Force CharGen for Mongoose Traveller

It may look like I'm telling the dice what character to roll for me. But I'm really just throwing away a lot of character sheets until the character I asked for is created.

I'm curious to see how other people's Traveller CharGen apps handle the creation of preferred characters. Do you have a video? What programming language are you using? Or am I the only person in the universe that is doing this? There's got to be others.

Traveller RPG Die Roll Programs to Peruse

For the last week and a half or so, I've been working on a Windows die roll program for Mongoose Traveller. I wanted it to be dangerous, but not too dangerous. A KISS sort of app. It displays a graph. And it'll also speak, if you let it. But that's as complex a computer program I'll let it get for now.

The program has tested out fine on Windows XP/7/10. Don't know about it working on Windows 8 or not.

Anyway, there is a Mongoose version, as well as a Classic version, for download from my Google drive.

A new 0.8.0 (Beta) version has been added. Uses a combo box instead of a dial for difficulty setting.

A new 1.0.0 (Beta) version has been added for Mongoose Traveller 2nd Edition.
