Default Where can I download Mathhammer?

I would prefer the latest version if there is one but yeah.

Thanks for any replies!

Epic lolz .

"Mathhammer" isn't a program; it's just jargon for applying probability to 40k.

For example, a Guardsman can hit his target on a 4+, Mathhammer dictates that there's 50% chance of him scoring a hit - very basic example.

I don't think there's an actual program of Mathammer. Whenever someone uses it it's because they were crazy enough to do the math with a calculator and pencil, or they might've used Microsoft Excel (I think you can do that sort of math thing with Excel).

I had a mathhammer program on my old computer so there is one. I cant find where I originally downloaded it.

I know that it's what people call probability related to the game, not that new to 40k.

Although if I hadn't the fact that you were laughing at my inexperience would probably have been hurtful.

Excel or any other spreadsheet is excellent at mathhammer type calculations. Even if you've never done much spreadsheeting it shouldn't be too hard to get the basic formulas.

Here's a hint on one that I had a bit of trouble figuring out: BS 4 means 4 shots out of 6 will hit. That's much easier than trying to explain "BS + die_roll >= 7" to a spreadsheet. PM me if you want help making up a spreadsheet, or if you just want me to send you the one I have.

I made a program called mathhammer, but abandoned it after the 0.2 version to pursue trying to write it in java. I havn't gotten around to finishing it yet.

Anytime I Mathhammer-ed something out, I just used Excel. Here's a linky to an example spreadsheet where I figured the awesomeness of the Zapp gun from the now-old Ork codex.

Here is a 40K probability calculator , AKA Mathhammer . You need to update your Java stuff to get it to work in case it gives you some hassle .

How do you do it though? Like I know how to determine how to hit, but not how to wound based off those hits or anything else, y'know?
