Thread seemed to vanish in the update, so I'll re-enter it. -- I am an old BASIC programming from the days of C64 and Amiga, and I wanted to try to learn how to make an Android application, so I recently started a project to help me learn to make an application The basic idea is to make something that helps a GM or player in character generation using an Android tablet or phone, by automating random table rolls, while using a seed number either input by the user in the keyboard or by scanning a barcode. So I started by picking a very simple character generator, the random mutant generator from The Mutant File by Sean Fannon. Right now it's a simple application that you input a seed number, and it uses that number to generate a much longer string of numbers which generates the character. I want to eventually work in a barcode scanner, allowing people to generate characters from picking up household items (magazines, bags of chips, toy boxes), simply scan them and a character pops out. I hope to use this application for either the GM making background characters, or one off games, where everyone walks in with a candy, magazine, anything with a barcode, and gets the character based on the seed number it generates. Here is a screen shot of the earliest version. I just typed in 1234567890 as the seed and got this: Eventually I want to support multiple books. You simply change books by scanning the new book's bade code (for instance, you scan the book Mutants in Orbit from Palladium Books, and the application switches to generating a random orbit mutant). Suggestions? Comments?
