Hi all,
I found this forum. I'm searching for a generator that will read chummer files and work on android. Any help is appreciated...

I am not familiar with Chummer since I use Hero Lab.  Does Chummer have a PDF output?

What would be WONDERFUL is something similar to DnD Beyond for character management and a tie in to Missions... building an app is $$$ though...
That's just like... your opinion, man.

Chummer is a Fan project and not a official product.

That said, The creator of Chummer (Chummer 5 is alive) does visit these forums. He may have an idea of what may work, but i wouldn't expect there is such a thing for android.
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

Chummer does allow outputting a character sheet as a .pdf, which you can view on an android device.

But as far as using in-game functionalities (buying gear, expending ammo, etc) I don't know of any android compatibility, nor of any plans for there being any.

HeroLab for mobile would be awesome too, hope they add Shadowrun to HeroLab Online soon.

Ahhh... ;)

I tried out the early versions with Starfinder...ok, but no offline was a real issue for me.

While i do think the new online generators and running tools are neat.
But i think discord is universally a more useful tool for this. In my experience Character Generators promote lazy character creation.

I really love Herolab, since it means I can go 'hm what about X' and find a quality with that in the description. Easier to find. Same for drugs and more. =)
