Simpsons 2E Excel Character Generator

Postby Zaqaz » Tue Nov 16, 2010 11:01 pm

I'm not entirely sure that this goes here, but it is a tool for creating characters, so I shouldn't be too far off.

I can't seem to find this anywhere. I've found websites, including this one, that rave about its usefulness, but then I follow links that should get me to it and they're dead ends. Does anyone have a working link to a download of the most recent version of this character generator? Would you be so kind as to post said link?

Thank you.

Or, as seen in the Links section, the Westguard site has the OpenOffice versions.

Thanks for the links, everyone.

Now, I've looked at both the Excel and the Open Office character generators, and there are some pretty big differences. The Open Office version looks to have more options, but I can't really be too sure about that.

Which do we prefer, in general?

OpenOffice is the more current one. Long story short, the two were always developed in parallel and currently only the OpenOffice one is being updated.

Personally, I typically used the OO one. I used Excel at work due to a lack of OpenOffice. Admittedly, I don't really actively use either anymore because my primary software is Hero Lab and I don't work at that one office anymore.

Really? I'm surprised. I believe that the Simpsons one was recently updated a few months ago.

But if the OpenOffice one is the more up-to-date... I suppose I should go with that.

The Excel version of the OpenOffice character generator doesn't have any problems, does it?

Sorry for the bump, but it's been a while and my last question was never answered.

I hope this isn't bad form.

I honestly can't say if it currently does not as I no longer have Excel on my machine. The last version I had didn't auto-calculate properly, but I think they've probably fixed it since then.
