Random selections including negative numbers can be obtained via:
_Xrnd = round(random 200) 100;
This will yield numbers between 100 and 100. Be careful using random numbers in multiplayer, each client will come up with a different result. See multiplayer tutorials for more general information about locality.
 The number returned is unlikely to be a whole number.
x = round(random 5) will return 0,1,2,3,4 or 5. (nonuniform distribution, 0 and 5 are half as likely to be selected than any of the other numbers) x = floor(random 5) will return 0,1,2,3 or 4. (uniform distribution, all numbers have the same probability of being selected) x = ceil(random 5) will return 0,1,2,3,4 or 5. (0 is very unlikely, but possible, as ceil 0 is 0)
