Here one can find various useful utilities that can make playing Shadowrun a little easier. Most of these utilities make use of Apple Computer's Cocoa technologies, but there are others that do not. Apple's Cocoa runs on Mac OS X.

The SRDiceRoller application is a general utility that can be used until a true Arena application is created. Its basic function is to replace the need for dice during game play. It can roll skills and initiative. It keeps track of pools, including karma used for rerolling failures. Starting with version 2.0 condition monitors are built-in.
Version 2.1 offers the ability to control whether at least one success is needed for re-rolling failures, the ability to alter the level of a skill after it has been created, and a correction to a problem that occurs when cloning takes place. It is available in English, French and Dutch.
The ConditionMonitor application allows you to keep track of condition monitors for any number of characters grouped in files which can be saved between gaming sessions.

The target number program, called tn, is used to indicate the percentage chance that the specified target number can be generated on at least a specified number of an equal or larger specified number of dice. Therefore, one can determine something like the chance that at least 3 dice will succeed with TN 7 on 6 dice (6.22857%). There is also a PDF document that contains a table of various target numbers and chances that they can be achieved with various dice quantities. There is also a PDF document that contains tables of numbers of successes and the chances to get them with specific numbers of dice compared to various target numbers. Note that these files are not compressed.
