Change Log

1.0.0: Initial release

Install

Use R2ModMan or similar installer to install this plugin.

Inside the plugin install folder will be the Chrome Extension folder. Add this Extension to Chrome.

Usage

  1. Open Roll20 and open a character sheet. Wait for a prompt indicating Roll20 Chat Extractor is ready.

  2. Ensure that the character sheet settings are set to NOT roll damage automatically. This is required since Talespire supports only one dice result at a time. You will need to roll your attack and then click on the result name to roll the damage separately.

  3. Set the roll to be either normal or prompt for advantage/disadvantage. Do not always use advantage or disadvantge. This is because Talespire roll results don't support advantage and disadvantage and thus only the result (the lower or higher value) will be shown in Talespire. Thus if you always roll with advantage and then take the first value for normal rolls, that won't work here.

  4. You can roll saves, skills, tool proficiencies, and attacks using disadvantage, normal or advantage rolls. When posted to Talepsire, since only the result is displayed, the roll name will have a (+) or (-) if rolled with advantage or disadvantage. This is to prevent players from constantly rolling with advantage (since Talespire would not show it otherwise). In the case of a roll with advantage or disadvantage where both dice are the same (=) shows up instead.

How To Use With Multiple Players

The chrome extension does not have a concept of players. It will search the chat messages for any character sheet rolls and report them to Talespire. Talespire also has no concept of who rolled the roll, so it will report all rolls using the player name who collected them. What does that mean? It means that if the GM is collecting all the chat roll results, all of the rolls, no matter which player rolled them, will appear with the GM name. That sucks...what can we do about that?

The solution is to have each player collect their own chat rolls. To do this each players needs to create their own Roll20 game in which they set up their character sheet. By doing that each player will collect chat rolls for that game only which means only their own chat rolls. The plugin will then post those rolls under their name and thus rolls will be properly posted with each players name.

Limitations

  1. The plugin uses the Remote Control Plugin's default port setting of 11000. Do not change the Remote Control Plugin's port setting if you wish to use this plugin.

  2. The chrome extension which gets the Roll20 chat data is looking for character sheet rolls. Any other rolls such as from custom macros or /r rolls are not supported at this time.

  3. The rolls will be displayed in Talespire associated with the player that collects the data. See How To Use With Multiple Players.
