About sr3cg, the CharacterGenerator
Sr3cg, the character-generator is a nice little tool for creating Character Sheets
for the great Cyberpunk RPG Shadowrun.
It was written in (flex/C) and C++ and uses the Qt toolkit. sr3cg is beeing co-developed on Debian GNU/Linux and Apple MacOS X, but from time to time we also do a port to Microsoft Windows.
CharacterGenerator can import in the Database of a more mature but Windows-only program called nsrcg.
Since I started the project early July 2003 and was laid on ice for about half a year, there is not much that you can do until now.
I also have to admit that it won't be useable at all without the original Sourcebooks at hand, since you won't be able to understand the program without.
- load/save to a new XML-based format, making it IT-Buzzword-complete
- priority system
- biographical info
- printing of nice character sheets
- NO Magic at all for now
Of course you can always take a close look at the change log.
I do sincerely hope that you will have a lot of fun using this tiny tool as we did writing it!
Have fun and keep running!
