A D&D 4e Combat Manager

Please note: this web-site is going down on 28 April 2017!!!

4eTurnTracker will continue to be hosted by Launchpad. Here you may download the lastest builds of the program (version 2.0.12) and you have access to the source code of the project.

Cost of this Web-site is 120 EUR per year. I have added a Donate button below, in case you would like to contribute to the the upkeep of the Web-site beyond April 2017.

4eTurnTracker continues to be a popular program, even though many are playing 5e these days. However, I am no longer using the program myself so I plan to invest the money I spend on this site into a new project! :)

Thanks, and all the best to the fans!

4eTurnTracker 1.0.04 Character Creator imports .dnd4e Files! PDF Print E-mail

I have just released 4eTurnTracker 1.0.04 Beta. This version includes the new Character Creator window, which simplifies the Creation and Editing of Player Characters.

Version 1.0.04 also includes support for import of .dnd4e files created by the Character Builder. Now Character creation is super easy! Just hit the 'New' character button, click on the 'Import' tab, and then select the .dnd4e file. 4eTurnTracker will also import the Portrait that you have selected in Character Builder.

The program remembers the location of the .dnd4e file so that changes in Character Builder can be re-imported with the click of a button, or even automatically during an Extended Rest.

Release 1.0.04 also includes some significant improvements to the Monster Manager. For example, changing names or deleting Monsters now results in all Encounters with the modified monsters to be updated as well.

For a complete list of all changes in 1.0.04, check out the Release Notes.

4eTurnTracker now even more Mac Friendly! PDF Print E-mail

4eTurnTracker 1.0.03 has just been released. This version supports Macs running Mac OS X 10.4 or later and both PowerPC and Intel processor-based machines.

Previous versions required Mac OS 10.5 or later running on an Intel machine. So the new release is a response to a number of users who requested support for older Macs.

4eTurnTracker is now a "universal binary", which means it contains both PPC and Intel code. Unfortunately this also doubles the size of the program so the download is now 20 MB. Well, you can't have everything...

4eTurnTracker 1.0.02 Beta Released! PDF Print E-mail

I have just released 4eTurnTracker version 1.0.02. The most important change in this version is the addition of a "Monster Manager" Window.

The Monster Manager Window is used to create Monsters and build Encounters. Monsters can be created by copying and pasting a Monster Stat Block from the Compendium, Adventure Tools or some other source.

Encounters are displayed in a Hierarchical structure which, I believe, makes it easy to build Encounters with a few clicks, but try it out for yourself...

With the permission of Fiery Dragons Productions I am shipping a set of counters for use as Portrait images along with the other sample Data included with the program. The counter collection includes all the counters you need for the adventure: Keep on the Shadowfell, published by Wizards of the Coast.

It is really cool to use the same images in the program and on the board, so check out Fiery Dragon online for tons of great counters(*) that you can use in your games!

(*) I am not associated with Fiery Dragon in any way, so this comment is motivated by 2 things: I use their counters in my own games and find them great and, they quickly and unbureaucratically approved shipment of the example tokens. My Thanks!

4eTurnTracker is a tool for tracking D&D 4th Edition encounters

The first release of 4eTurnTracker is version 1.0.01 Beta. The program has many features, including:

  • Tracking hit point levels and other "resources" of party members and monsters.
  • Automatic rolling of initiative and saving throws. The automatics rolls can be overridden or accepted by the DM.
  • Condition and effect tracking and automatic termination, at "end of turn", "save ends", etc.
  • A "History Log" allows you to undo an action or number of actions in an encounter. The log is also loaded on startup, so you can pause the game at any time!
  • Handles tricky stuff like delayed and readied actions.
  • A "Players Display" allows the players to follow the action, and the DM can determine which creatures they see.

And this is just the beginning!

I plan to add more features and improvements over the next few months. You can be a part of this too by trying it and giving me feedback as soon as I have the forum setup!
