D&D Manager Data Project

Because there is no built in data in D&D Manager I have decided to create a project on the site to try and create a fairly full list of feats, spells and weapons. So to start the ball rolling I am allowing the download of the spells I have already added to the program myself. The reason I want some help with this is so I can continue spending my time trying to improve D&D Manager itself.

Disclaimer

The data download available from this page is included in the hope that it will be useful, there is no guarantee that it is either accurate or complete.

How do I send you my data file?

If you have any data you have added to D&D Manager please email a data file containing them to me (ddmanager-data@matthewhutton.com) and I will add them to this page.

This is extremely useful as contributing data you have added yourself means I can spend more time developing the program itself. You will be credited in the item description as well as on this page for any contributions (unless you’d prefer to remain anonymous). Also sorry if I’ve not credited anyone, please drop me an email if so.

  1. Superb program! While I’m new to Macs I’ve played D&D for many years. An excellent program, well designed and executed. My compliments!

  2. Thank you for a wonderful tool. I’ve just started exploring it. I clicked to download the most recent (2.2.3), however the application that is linked it 2.2.2.
    Again thank you.

  3. how can i translate it to spanish? or you have a translation?? your program will be more popular if you releasse a translation! mai me to: <email-address-removed> if you can tell me how translate the files. Thanks!!

  4. I agree that it would be great if it was translated into different languages, unfortunately as a typical English person my knowledge of other languages isn’t particularly good so I need some help :).

  5. Hi,
    I love your program although I find it hard to completely abandon the old pencil and paper method 🙂
    I can help you with the translation to Spanish. Drop me an email if you are interested!
    Cheeers.

  6. It’s been a while since you wrote this, and I’m not aware if you’ve already translated it, but if you need some help with Spanish, just shout me. I’ll be happy to help.

  7. I love the program! I’ve just started a 4.0 campaign with some friends and was wondering if you had plans to create a 4.0 app? I figure this one is giving you plenty to do, but just thought I’d ask. Thanks again!

  8. Is there by chance a data set out there the incorporates Psionics? I’m trying to move over to D&D Manager from the unfortunatly no-longer supported, (and slightly broken in Snow Leopard) RPG Patsy, and I like what I see of D&D Manager quite a bit. Unfortunately my main character has a couple levels in Psion, so without that data it’s going to be tough to port him over…

  9. Hmmm… of course now that I look more carefully, (while attempting to create a Psion class) it looks like D&D Manager isn’t really set up to handle Psionics properly anyway… I’ll have to see if I can rig something together that’ll be “good enough” for now.

  10. I am most interested in this program, and thank you so much for putting it together, superb job! However how would one follow in your footsteps to create a 4.0 program? And are there those out there with the skills to execute this? I think you have a wonderful system here, and am even contemplating stepping back from 4e back to 3.5e just to utitlize this resource more comprehensively.

  11. You’d need to be able to program in Cocoa for Mac, and then you’d need to create a new database (in Core Data or maybe something else) or adjust the database (which uses Core Data) and the code for the program to fit the rules for D&D 4.0. Whether this is better done as a program “inspired” by the current one or a new project is difficult to know to be honest :).

    But good luck if you decide to go ahead.

  12. Sadly I have very little programming experience, so while I’d be happy to try to type out and contribute the powers and such, but I don’t think I’d be able to actually create a template that would work properly for Psionics.

  13. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THESE FILES… i was beginning to type the feats in… i got through the first 5 and i was like “this is really, really, really boring” then i searched and it came here… thank you so much.

  14. I don’t know if this has been brought up before, but I can’t write in the damage die for ranged weapons, only for ammo… Also, you forgot to put in the +5 Max Dex for armors, so as is, it is impossible to use the studded leather with this program…

  15. Hi. I love the program. It is helping me organize my adventures quite well.

    I appreciate how Classes, Skills and Feats can be adapted and edited. It helps in that I can Edit the details to fit D20 Modern and Call of Cthuhlu.

    The only thing I might suggest is a page to Edit and Add other races in. This would be very helpful.
