Rolemaster Office
« on: May 09, 2011, 04:34:00 PM »
Hi,
I'm new to this forum and I'd like to introduce my brand new version of Rolemaster Office 4.1.0 which is now localized to english.

You can download it from Sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/rmoffice/files/RMOffice_410.zip/download
You need Java 1.6 Runtime, which you can download here: http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

First, RM Office was developed only for the german version of Rolemaster, which is based on RMRPP rules. I used the content of Jonathan Dales Excelsheet to localize the content and bring new content to germany  ;)

The main reason to develope this tool was that I have no Excel on Linux and I need/want a nice printed character sheet at the end. The killer-feature of Rolemaster Office is the beautifal and dynamically created PDF character sheet.

Here are some further features:
- all professions, races, cultures, training packs, skills and sill categories  from excel
- all bonusses are calculated
- save/load as file
- add an image to the PDF
- developed in Java (run it on Win, Linux, Mac, etc)

Give it a try and give me feedback, please

Thanks and Bye,
Magistrate

Welcome to the forums, Magistrate.

So far, it looks very nice. Thanks for the hard work. :)
I'll have to dig into it a bit deeper tomorrow.
Is there a way to change racial stats or modify Background Options?
How about change Realm stats?

Ah, a completely tweakable tool not based on Excel ! Thank you very much !
I have begun to play with it, create a character and so on, it is very interesting, and rather intuitive to use. I will comment more in depth later (and perhaps look under the hood, even if I know squash about java).

Thank you all for the great feedback .. I'll keep on working on it  :)
If you have any ideas, wishes or you find any bugs, please just tell me.

Q: "Is there a way to change racial stats ..."
A: Yes, you can modify most of the values/content. You can open the jar file with e.g. WinRAR and in the conf folder you'll find all, what is configurable.
Profession, Race, cultures, Training packs ...

Example: If anyone likes to add Shadow World races ... I would be pleased to add them to RMOffice. Just open the race.conf and the culture.conf files and you can add the files. After adding just send me the files and I'll add them

Currently I have no translation for weapons and spells ... (I have only the german books, but if you have a list, sent it to me). Is there anyone out there that wants to translate it to another language, just check out the locale files (don't forget to send it to me, I will add them to RMOffice).

Next steps I've planned:
- A complete list of all skills with current bonus (alphabetically ordered) as an extra page of the exported PDF
- Page for Notes on the PDF (eg. character history)
- hopefully: finish translation
- Level-Up - Support with DP-points counter
- Later perhaps: Magical Items administration

So you can't level up? I thought it was me; just couldn't figure it out...

There are lots of char gen tools in the Vault, and they should prove good sources for weapons, spells, professions etc. Many of them are Excel based so the data is easy to extract.

  IMHO if you could provide a level up tracker ie they bought this skill at this level it would be great. And very easy to see what was bought when.

I could not find BO, but it does remind me to pick them at the top. I'll keep looking.
Spell Lists are in German. 20 years ago, I could read it, maybe..
Great so far and thanks again.

What is BO?
Yes, Spell lists aren't translated, yet. I need english list of all spell lists and whats profession has this list as base list, which list is open/closed/arcane and its realm. Then I can add the translation. I couldn't find anything like that in the vault. Did I missed anything?

Currently you can "Add modified" from the correct category and modify the name to english.

In the next versions I will add step-by-step more comfort functions like "popup the stat gain dialog after chosing a training package"
I will try to implement BOs, too ... currently you have to modify the character by yourself. Sorry

I hope, I'll find a spell list list with profession relation somewhere, any hints?

Thank you for the work. I run linux as well & sometimes libreoffice doesn't import excel sheets correctly. This is very nice :)

Hello,
first sorry to resurrect this old post but we use RM office for our character sheet since many years and really enjoyed it!
Thanks for making it !
We want to start a new "pulp style" game and I've been trying to adapt RM office skills set but without success.
Despite my best effort to modify the skill.csv and Skill.conv file, my change doesn't appear in the program.
I think it is link to the creation of th skill category ID or to the man between the keeboard and the chair...
I hope someone using this software can give me some clue or a functionning skill file so I could duplicate the tricks.
Thanks
