  1. I only speak English well enough to translate so I can only do the preliminary (introductory) work so that D&D Manager is easy to translate into different languages – but so far noone has wanted to help me translate the program into any other languages so I haven’t bothered :(.

  2. Yes, ‘ive altrdy seen the page.. 😉
    I’m translating!
    But i discovered a bad thing… I can’t do “Find and Replace All” because it’ll replace also the Word inside the “comments” -> /* title=”word”*/
    😀
    Iz going to be a looong work.. 😀
    But i’m happy to help you in this project… I’m also watching the sources.. But i’ve no experience in

  3. Good to hear. I’ve been doing some work to add support for localisation in the code side of things. I’ll have a few more strings to post shortly. Any you don’t understand in the next block drop me an email, some of them will probably be difficult to understand :o.

  4. I see one deficiency:
    Where is a tutorial or manual? I am new to D&D Manager, and I am struggling to determine just how to use it… such as how do I create and add a character?

    HELP!

  5. Good point. Though for your issue it is said in grey when the program loads up (though there is some other confusing information too – I’ll remove it). You can add new character’s by pressing the plus box in the bottom right.

  6. Any idea on if you’ll put in a feature to add races? I’ve been using this for most of my d20 games using the v3.5 rules, not just good ol’ D7D but stuff like Warcraft and such. I’d love to have it be more accurate for multiple different genres.

  7. I noticed that there isn’t an option for Monstrous Humanoid as the character’s type. Any particular reason as to why you excluded it? I’ve been trying to figure out how to import my Thri-Kreen into the program.

  8. I’m getting involved in a 3.0 (not 3.5) game with some friends. Any idea how hard it would be to make the program 3.0 instead of 3.5?
