tc01 / chummer5

Description

This repository contains Chummer5, a GPLv3 application for creating a character for the Shadowrun tabletop RPG system, along with its Mono dependencies.

Chummer is a character generator for Shadowrun 5th Edition. Not only can you create your character quickly and easily, but you can also use Chummer during your character's shadowrunning career, to accurately track your Karma, Nuyen, ammo, and everything else all in one place. Chummer also includes support for a number of optional rules and house rules and even includes support for critters and is useful for players and Game Masters alike! It also supports four languages: English, French, German, and Japanese.

Installation Instructions

I haven't written a desktop file for chummer5 yet, so to install and run it, you'll need to do the following:

$ dnf install chummer

$ chummer

Not everything works. Notably, Chummer occasionally crashes during character creation (but, amusingly enough, asks you if you want to save your character before the program actually exits, so you won't lose any data). However, what doesn't work at all currently (due to unimplemented functions in Mono) is attempting to play a campaign with a character after creation. The missing functions appear to be in "System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart".

I patched Chummer to store its autosaves and settings in ~/.config/chummer5. The executables and data are stored in /usr/lib/mono/chummer5, which is owned by root (so to modify the data files, you'll need administrator permissions).
