(Testers Wanted!) VDSL Mini-Challenge Ramdomizing Program
I'm a bit jealous of all the awesome VDSL challenges I've seen lately, but am occupied with one of my rare-but-really-awesome visits with boyfriend.  Compromise!  He made a spiffy little program so I can feel like I'm making progress on the challenge ;)

I introduce to you, the Mini-Challenge Chooser:

Could you do without this?  Absolutely.  But, I like clicking things, and I like sharing, and maybe you like clicking things, so you can randomize and check the challenge and then maybe randomize what sim it applies to with the Sim Selector, all in one place.  (In fact, you can use the Sim Selector to choose between sims for any related or unrelated reason you choose; I won't tell...)  If you format new challenges the same way, you can even import an entirely new set of challenges, such as for the Sims 3 Mini-Challenge list.  Edit: To save you a few steps I've just pasted the Sims 3 challenges in a txt here.  Go File > Open New File > and choose the txt.  To switch back to the default list, just close and reopen the program.

I think its pretty simple and self-explanatory, but there under help there is a glossary, credits, and input file formatting tips if you need it.  You can also post here if you have questions, and if you have trouble you can contact me or talon83636 .

-This program is a .jar and requires Java.
-EP requirements display at the bottom; this program does not ask or automatically detect and filter based on what you have installed.  It was gonna, but it would have been evil to do that and make future challenges importable.
-Tested in Windows 7 and Windows XP only so far. Edit: works in Windows Vista and on Macs, too.

Tell your boyfriend he is all amounts of awesome.
[massive hugs to you for sharing]

Thanks! I'll pass it on :D

I still can't even believe you got your boyfriend to make this off of your list! *giggles* But MORE POWER to both of you!

It was kind of fun doing the planning and stuff with him, but I really appreciate all the kinda tricky stuff he did that I couldn't begin to help with.

OH WOW. This is perfect! Especially as I keep losing my dice. >.>

I know what you mean, I can never keep any tiny things on my desk without my cat absconding with it somewhere into the basement. He has to try much harder to ruin things electronically, heh.

My sweet LORD that's amazing! Thank you! I'll try it out when I get home! :D

Tell your boyfriend thank you! And thank you for sharing this with us!

You're welcome! I'll thank him some more now :3

Just wanted to let you know that it works on Vista too.

It's excellent! Now to work out how to import the list for Sims 3 rules.

Thanks to both you and to your boyfriend.

It worked wonderfully! Thanks again.

This is the bestest thing since ever! Thank you and your boyfriend so very much!

And it works great on Vista.

Thanks for testing it in Vista, glad you like it :)

This is AWESOME. Thank you and your boyfriend very much! :D

You're welcome! I'll pass on the thanks to him :)

Holy farking crap, this is awesome! You guys rock so hard for programming/sharing this little slice of win :3

*faints* i am just now seeing this! thank you so much!


Seriously, this is so. SO. AWESOME. <333

It should work just by double-clicking it. If that doesn't work, I would suggest installing whatever the most recent version of Java there is. Let me know if you still have trouble executing it :)

This works on my Mac, by the way. :D I kind of want to play one of these VDSL legacies for fun (that's what I say everryyyy time...) and... well... it works. :D
