InfoPath and D&D

I’m currently running a 3.5E D&D game over on called The
Sunless Citadel
. Yes, the geek in me lives.

Tonight, I decided to use InfoPath to recreate the 3.5E character sheet.  Overall,
the experience has been pretty positive.

However, one of my players sent me her character sheet in Excel which did most (if
not all!) of the calculations for you.  I’m toying with revisiting it but putting
some XML behind it.

Oh, and I pulled PCGen, a Java-based d20 tool, into C# using JLCA.  Unfortunately,
there’s ~7,000+ errors (mostly in AWT) that need to be addressed.  If anyone
knows of an AWT port to .NET, give me a holler.  I’d really like to see PCGen.NET
kick the performance snot out of it’s Java cousin.

    I too am interested in getting some of the PCGen stuff ported to C#. Please could you let me know how to go about using JCLA. I have tried but it converted nothing !!! I am prepared to do the bug fixing.
