Macro for summing success out of multiples rolls.

1584988843
Hello guys ! I've tryed to find throught the forum but I couldn't find the answer, so sorry if the question already been asked. I'm trying to do a macro that will roll the sum of 2 attributes and calculate the number of success out of it. Let's say I've got a character that have 4 in strenght and 3 in Dexterity, I'm going to roll 7d10 and I want to know how many success I will get (Let's say a success would be 7 or more) What i've been doing is setting up attribute (strengh & Dex) and going for a macro. /r {@{Dex}+@{Str}}>7 But it just won't work. From what I can understand, I'm not supposed to put the >7 on more than one roll.. But then how would I do that properly ?

You are close: /r (@{Dex}+@{Str})d10>7

Oh.. thanks, I'll try this out :)

That's super neat ! Works like a charm, thank you. Now I'd like to go even deeper.. I've setted up a roll query that hold all the attribute. As in my games, player often need to roll a couple of attribute at once (like Stamina + strenght, for exemple). So the query make the player choose 2 attributs between all of them and roll them with the same formula you gave me. Now, I would like the maccro to also say in emote what attribute has been rolled. Since those attribute are under the ?{ | |} balisa, I can't put simply a name on the emote, how could I do that ?

Adding in the emote will complicate things somewhat. Your basic selection macro would look like: /r (?{Attribute 1|Strength,@{Str}|Dexterity,@{Dex}|Stamina,@{Sta}} + ?{Attribute 2|Strength,@{Str}|Dexterity,@{Dex}|Stamina,@{Sta}})d10>7 With the emote labelling you'll need to get into the realm of html replacement characters because of the need to change the label value at that point and have the rest of the macro nested in it... trust me, it's a headache! What you could  do is label your rolls as part of the macro: /r (?{Attribute 1|Strength,@{Str} [Strength] |Dexterity,@{Dex} [Dexterity] |Stamina,@{Sta} [Stamina] } + ?{Attribute 2|Strength,@{Str} [Strength] |Dexterity,@{Dex} [Dexterity] |Stamina,@{Sta} [Stamina] })d10>7

And labels to those maccro would be seen in chat? Edit : I've just followed this syntax and here is the outcome : rolling (4 [Intelligence] +4 )d10>8 (4+4) =  8 So, basically, the label just unallow the d10 to proc..

Huh, how odd... it does seem to break it, this works but you have to hover over the number of dice rolled to see the tags: /r [[ ?{Attribute 1|Strength,@{Str} [Strength]|Dexterity,@{Dex} [Dexterity]|Stamina,@{Sta} [Stamina]} + ?{Attribute 2|Strength,@{Str} [Strength]|Dexterity,@{Dex} [Dexterity]|Stamina,@{Sta} [Stamina]} ]] d10>7

Try removing the spaces between the stat and the tag, @{Str} [Strength] I'm not sure if this'll work, but i seem to remember this problem being related to spaces somehow.

It doesn't, tried every iteration... for some reason tags break () groupings but not [[]] ones.

Weird. Thanks for trying.

It's probably because of where the d10 is at the end. You get: @{Str} [Strength]d10>7 Try putting the tag in front.

One iteration I hadn't tried but nope, no joy :( /r and () groups do NOT like tags lol Inline grouping works fine but isn't as useful for the OP out of the box.

Yeah.. Seems I won't get a solution for that ^^ nvm, that would have been polishing anyway. Thanks for all your replys !

Hey ! Coming to you for help again ;D So here is my actualy macro : /r (?{Attribut 1|Intelligence,@{Olwen|Int} |Force Mentale,@{Olwen|FM} |Astuce,@{Olwen|Ast} |Charisme,@{Olwen|Cha} |Manipulation,@{Olwen|Man} |Sang froid,@{Olwen|SF} |Force,@{Olwen|Vig} |Robustesse,@{Olwen|Robu} |Dextérité,@{Olwen|Dex} } +?{Attribut 2|Intelligence,@{Olwen|Int} |Force Mentale,@{Olwen|FM} |Astuce,@{Olwen|Ast} |Charisme,@{Olwen|Cha} |Manipulation,@{Olwen|Man} |Sang froid,@{Olwen|SF} |Force,@{Olwen|Vig} |Robustesse,@{Olwen|Robu} |Dextérité,@{Olwen|Dex} })d10>8 And everything is working like a charm. Thing is, I would like it to explode, but as soon as I put the "!" next to the d10, It won't show success anymore. Any suggestions?

If you are rolling multiple exploding dice, I think you need to put your entire dice calculation before the >8 inside curly brackets.  See if this works: /r {(?{Attribut 1|Intelligence,@{Olwen|Int} |Force Mentale,@{Olwen|FM} |Astuce,@{Olwen|Ast} |Charisme,@{Olwen|Cha} |Manipulation,@{Olwen|Man} |Sang froid,@{Olwen|SF} |Force,@{Olwen|Vig} |Robustesse,@{Olwen|Robu} |Dextérité,@{Olwen|Dex} } +?{Attribut 2|Intelligence,@{Olwen|Int} |Force Mentale,@{Olwen|FM} |Astuce,@{Olwen|Ast} |Charisme,@{Olwen|Cha} |Manipulation,@{Olwen|Man} |Sang froid,@{Olwen|SF} |Force,@{Olwen|Vig} |Robustesse,@{Olwen|Robu} |Dextérité,@{Olwen|Dex} })d10}>8 If that doesn't work for you, hopefully someone else has a suggestion!
Thanks for the reply, it works perfectly :)
