[#] Arkham Horror Investigator Generator
07:21am UTC - 2/27/2009

I've made yet another generator thing. This one's for Arkham Horror Investigators, and lets you quickly create Investigator sheets. It's a bit more niche on /tg/ than the other generators, but it was also a lot easier and faster for me to code.

For those of you wondering why my generator is superior to Strange Eons, it's not "superior" as much as:

If you're looking to create a full, professional expansion for Arkham Horror, use Strange Eons, but otherwise my online generator's probably more useful to most people. I'll be expanding it with Ancient Ones, Heralds and Guardians next.

Next up after that, WotC has personally offended me by forcing me to download and install a 44MB "demo" of their D&D Insider online character thing, which includes the fucking .NET framework. This is un-fucking-acceptable. It actually asked me to restart after hanging for a good four minutes at the end of the installation. The fucking nerve! I'm going to check it out and see if I can't do better than these hacks.

Ell Ell:

WotC has gravely offended me by continuing to keep Magic: the Gathering alive when it should have been dead and buried.

LL is motivated by anger and hot pockets.

Framework v1.1?

So, what's wrong with .NET? I'm not up on why I should be raging at Micro$haft, largely because my computer works.

.Net isn't the problem. You shouldn't be forced to install Framework for a goddamn online character generator (or whatever the fuck it is). That's just lazy, inept programming. I could see including <i>some</i> Framework to use objects specifically needed for Microsoft stuff (interfaces with Office?), but then why not just include the classes or even load new assemblies? I don't know. I'm not a .Net programmer, but I know a little by being a SharePoint administrator.

Yeah, what Tony said. There's nothing wrong with the *framework*, it's just the gall of expecting your users to install 50-75MB of overhead just to get your shitty little program to run, while a half-dozen other languages would do the job with a self-contained .exe.

If you're not building an application designed to integrate with other Microsoft applications, you shouldn't use .NET.

Oh wow, now wouldn't that kick ass, if you ended up making something better then the pay-to-use thingy WotC made. Yay, go LL, go!

I can't wait to see what you come up with.
