## AnyDice — efficiency of code calculating rolls hitting a target with mixed pools; hitting the 5 second barrier

I have some code that is hitting the 5 second barrier;

``function: target N:n of A:s B:s C:s {     result: [count {1..N, 1..(N/2)} in [sort {A, B, C}]] } output [target 7 of 4d12 0d20 0d8] output [target 7 of 4d12 2d20 0d8] output [target 7 of 4d12 4d20 0d8] ``

Even if I remove the final output line, it still fails.

I believe the code does what I want it to – calculate the number of dice rolling at or under the target from mixed pools (it runs when using other pools: d20s seem to be a problem).

Is there anyway I can improve it so that at least the first two of these output lines will run (or better yet, all three of them)?

N.b. from my perspective these were some of the simplest pools I wanted to look at.

## How to calculate the probabilities for eliminative dice pools (dice cancelling mechanic) in Neon City Overdrive?

The game Neon City Overdrive uses the following resolution mechanic for checks:

1. create a pool of Action Dice and (possibly) another pool of differently-colored Danger Dice (all d6, generally up to 5 or 6 dice in each pool)
2. roll all the dice
3. each Danger Die cancels out an Action Die with the same value – both are discarded
4. the highest remaining Action Die (if there is any) is the result (the precise meaning of which is irrelevant for the purposes of this question)
• any extra Action Dice showing 6 (i.e. in addition to the single highest die read as the result) provide a critical success (called a boon)

I’m struggling to find the proper way to model the probabilities of this mechanic in anydice.

I realize that a good starting point would be this answer to a very similar question regarding the mechanic in Technoir (which clearly was a source of inspiration for Neon City Overdrive). Unfortunately, despite my best efforts I can’t say I fully comprehend how the code provided there works, and there’s an important difference between the two games: in Technoir a single "negative die" eliminates all matching "positive dice", whereas in NCO this happens on a one-to-one basis.

I would be very grateful for any help.

## How can I examine the distribution of successes-counting mixed dice pools?

After looking at AnyDice’s Documentation and Function Library, I remain baffled. I know that AnyDice can do this, but I don’t know how to tell it to. Scott Gray’s Dice Pool Generator is easier to use but doesn’t return the results I need, or, at least, I lack arithmetic sufficient to force it to.

The mechanic uses a 6-die pool with a target number of 4. I need to know the percentage chances of rolling a 4 or higher on 1 or more, 2 or more, 3 or more, 4 or more, 5 or more, and all 6 dice in the pool using the following pools of dice:

• 6d4
• 5d4 and 1d6
• 4d4 and 2d6
• 3d4 and 3d6
• 2d4 and 4d6
• 1d4 and 5d6
• 6d6
• 5d6 and 1d8
• 4d6 and 2d8

… and so on until 6d12 becomes 5d12 and 1d20. I can do 6d4 and 6d6 myself, but I wanted the progression to be clear. (I’m skipping d14s and d16, by the way, because I couldn’t find d18s, and most folks don’t own d14s and d16s anyway.)

Can this be done?

By the way, the results needn’t be from AnyDice–that’s just frequently mentioned as a good odds generator. Results are the important part not the tool.

## application pools keeps stopping

I have an issue with SharePoint server, I hope you can help me solve it.

here is my question

I deployed SharePoint 2019 (on Windows server 2019) and SQL 2017(on Windows server 2019),

Since I deployed the environment, I encountered this issue once in a while and I tried many solutions and only solution that worked was repair option in SharePoint 2019 setup.

Here are symptoms:

SharePoint 80 pool and central administration pool has stopped.

SharePoint timer service stopped and I got 1503 error when I tried to restart it.

I got message when I opened SharePoint management shell.

Note : when I deployed the SharePoint server I use local administrator account instead of using sp-farm account. can this issue relate the account that I’ m used in deployment stage or no ,and how can I solve it ?

## Any Dice Help – Reroll 1’s in dice pools

I have made some progress in Anydice showing the probability for dice resolution system in the RPG system I’ve been working on. Here is the link to what I have so far. https://anydice.com/program/16e4a I need particular help on when a roll gets a 2 or 3 that that die can be rerolled once. I am interested to see how this alters the probability of success.
