    "It's good, but it can't handle epic campaigns at all and it has its quirks."

    June 22, 2005   |   By ronoxQ

    Version: DM Genie 2.1

    Pros

    It makes DMing up to level 20 easy as heck.

    Cons

    It has some quirks (for example, it gives monks Stunning Fist as a bonus feat at level 1, and doesn't let them pick it up until level 8), the psionic feats really should be seperated into their own category since they overrun the other stuff, and at epic levels, the thing falls apart.

    "Great Program for any GM!"

    April 11, 2005   |   By DJ OPM

    Version: DM Genie 2.1

    Pros

    I found this program a few years ago, and haven't had the occasion to use it much, but when I have used it, it has been a great help to me. If you've ever had players that move so fast that it is hard to keep up with the action, such as how long that spell lasts or what the weather is like, or how many days travel it would take by foot or by steed, then this is the program for you.

    Cons

    The program will require you to read the instructions and do the tutorial, as it is anything but intuitive. But once you learn the ropes, you'll wonder how you ever did without it.

    Summary

    Although the tool clearly need some manipulation before one reach an acceptable play fluidity, I(ve mastered it after 3 games sessions and a few hours preparing my scenarii.

    "Too Much in one program"

    February 18, 2003

    Version: DM Genie 2.1

    Summary

    Overall its a very good program, but it seems as if they tried to squeeze too much into one program.
    Half the time you're trying to figure out how to do this and that, than playing the game.

    I still use it for its individual purposes, but there just is too much thrown together

    "A detailed and accurate companion to the d20 system, if you can take the time to master it."

    December 30, 2002

    Version: DM Genie 2.1

    Summary

    After having downladed the DM Genie and played, edited, and fiddled with, Iv'e become quite convinced I couldnt have possibly DM'ed games with out it. Just when you think you've come up with a situation too far out in left field, theres a varible for it in the Genie. The downside to the program is its steep learning curve (off set by very user friendly, interactive tutorials) and cluttered look that dominates every screen and sub-screen. Minor fault, though, in an otherwise indespensible DMing tool.

    "If you dont try it, you'll be missing out!"

    December 18, 2002

    Version: DM Genie 2.1

    Summary

    Tracks so much...so easily. I no longer have to just wing it when it comes to combat and hope I get the modifiers right. No longer will I have to worry about forgetting when a spell wears off. DM Genie does it for me!

    I have given (as well as many others) ideas to the Developer and he has responded and added them into the program. There are frequent updates and it's a tremendous value.

    I have never bought a shareware program before.

    I bought this one.

    "Not all d20 games"

    December 03, 2002

    Version: DM Genie 2.1

    Summary

    Please note that this tool is useful for 3rd edition D&D. However, if you another d20 title in mind (such as Wheel of Time, Star Wars, or d20 Modern), it takes a lot of tweaking. I couldn't find out how to edit or create PC classes in this program. So it's not an actual d20 System tool; it's more suited for just D&D (but it's still pretty good).
