RPGDice is a freeware
and open source program for RPG rolling dice. It is currently
written in OPL for Symbian 6.1/7.0s Series 60.
It is aimed to be used by RPG fans, but also to help
the OPL community develop to Symbian Series 60 as its source code is available.
Description and Instructions
Current features of RPGDice
RPG Dice with 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 and 100 faces;
1 to 10 rolls at once;
it is still an OPO file, with manual installation, no icons, etc.
How to install and run :
before installing RPGDice, it requires the OPL runtime being installed for Symbian v6.1/7.0s Series 60
smartphones : Nokia 7650, 3650/60, N-Gage (QD), 6600,
6620, 7610, 6260, 6670, 3230, Panasonic X700/800, Samsung
SGH-D710/720/730,Sendo X and Siemens SX-1;
to install RPGDice, well, it
is currently an OPO file (not an APP), so there is no icon, and you
have to copy the "RPGDice.opo" file
to somewhere on your smartphone "C:" or "E:" drive. For example, create
a "E:\OPL" directory (recommeded place for other OPL softwares
distributed as OPO files), and copy "RPGDice.opo" to it;
The OPL source code is included in the RPGDice zip file to help OPL
developers to create Series 60 applications by taking RPGDice as
another source code example.
The RPGDice OPL source file has 341 lines with comments and 8.48 KB ("RPGDice_opl.txt" in plain text format). The RPGDice OPL include file has 65 lines with comments and 1.85 KB ("RPGDice_oph.txt" in plain text format).
To learn OPL and develop for EPOC and Symbian smartphones, I suggest to take a look at my OPL Wizard web page and its recommendations.
Thanks to :
Ramón Giostri Campos for
suggesting this software,
specifying its features, and testing on his Series 60 smartphones. Good news
: Ramón will also release some software for Series 60,
written in Python;
the OPL-Dev team for supporting OPL on Symbian OS;
Ewan Spence and Adrian Pemsel as "S60 EventCore" and "S60 Phocal" source codes were very useful.
