First of all, sorry for my english, i'm from spain and it is very hard
to me to talk to you in this language.

I'm trying to build a Vassal Module for Kings of War, the miniatures
wargame from Mantic miniatures. Actually I'm learning all i can about de
designer guide, and i'm working hardly in that module.

Parts of the module, like the graphics and the single pieces are well
advanced, but i have a problem with the dice rolls.

In Kings of war there are a lot of multiple dice rolls (20D6, 30D6) and
with the basics options of dice i don't know how to make that the
results appears in order and count the results. For example:

results for 15D6 with the basic option: 1,5,2,3,6,4,4,3,2,1,1,6,5,4,3
I want to show this results: 1,1,1,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,6,6

And another think i want to do is the next:

A unit rolls 10D6 dice to impact the enemy, and the unit impacts with a
result of 3 or more in a D6. I want to show:

1,1,2,3,3,4,4,5,6,6 (7 hits)

and another button for "to wound" dice rolls that works in the same way.

An excellent example of what i want to do is the "To Hit/Wound" button
of the awesome vassal Warhammer 40k module.

A last bit, i have knowledges about programming but i have never
programming Java.

I will thank you every help you can give me. And sorry for my english,

Thank you all.
