My group is considering running through some of the 3e adventures in the future. But since we play online (via IRC) using the 3e custom dice is going to require writing/mapping our existing dice rolling scripts to the new dice.

Did FFG ever publish a mapping or enumeration of the dice faces?

I am not 100% sure what you are asking for, but you may find the following thread helpful at the FFG forum:

I will check it out when I get home from work, thank you!

Basically what I'm looking for is something that says:
Fortune Die: 2 faces blank, 2 faces w/ 1 boon, 1 face with 2 boons. 1 face with 1 success.
Expertise Die: 1 hammer, 3 extra successes, 1 extra success, 3 faces blank.
etc etc.

i found this dice roller program online, which seems to list the facings of the various dice if you hover over the names:

That done, i am not able to vouch for the accuracy of the programs information and hope you're able to corroborate it before you go ahead.

Nothing official that I'm aware of, but Gitzman's dice stickers accurately recreate the dice faces, so you could use those to work it out:

Failing that, there are a few online dice rollers/apps. Not sure if you'd be able to integrate them into your online play:

Gitzman's MapTools
WFRP Dice app

I can confirm the dice faces it lists are accurate.

No problem! Let us know how it goes (creating the dice emulator and playing the adventures).

The stickers from Gitzman's site was just what I needed. My next task (the easy one) is to start the scripting.
