Pop Smoke Posted July 27, 2008 Share Posted July 27, 2008 I am not entirely certain how to understand the random number generator. It's format in the box seems to be: number ( ) <= Random Variable (New, X1 etc) < ( ) So I type in for example 75 New 100 what does this mean? is there a 75% chance of the action happening or a 25% chance? I think I am right that the NEW means that if multiple units are using the check it can throw up a different answer each time. But I'm not certain even on that. I would like a text version of just what the symbols are saying, first number then the <= does that apply to the first number or the random number (I assume it actually means "s less than or equal too") NEW I pretty much got that, but X1,X2 etc, is that a multiplication function or the number of times it will be applied? And the final < I am ssuming means that the resultant number generated is less than the number you enter in the box. Using 100 seems in some instances to make it a percentage chance. what other numbers would be used, must the right hand box alway have a lower number than the left? I am sure that for some this stuff is pretty straight forward, but it's never been my strong point I have checked out the manual and the scenario design site, but neither really cover this little box in any detail. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
