  1. Now in 8th ed Warhammer guns do d6 d3 or higher number of shots. I'd like to add that mechanic to the tool. No just 3+ 6+ but d3 and such. Same for wounds

  3. Running iOS 10.3.2 and BattleScribe 2.01.03

    40k 8th Ed repository from the BattleScribe website

    Create new list for Imperial Space Wolves v2

    Add Air Wing detachment.

    When I try to push the + to add a unit to the detachment, BattleScribe crashes to the iOS springboard. No error message and any data pertaining to the list is lost.

    Presumably this is Google Play credit through the Google Opinion Rewards program?

    I’m pretty sure this should just work (when buying via the Android app). When you click to purchase a pass, are you given the option of what payment method to use?

    I’m not 100% sure though!

  7. Issue: Nesting groups ignores the max in parent constraint for the purposes of changing the controls in the group.
    Example: https://i.imgur.com/LJLWVov.png

    Current Behaviour: Entres in a group with a child group use number inputs, regardless of max in parent.
    Example: https://i.imgur.com/hUl02fG.png

    Expected behaviour: Group with max 1 in parent always use radio buttons, as well as their direct descendant groups.
    Example: https://i.imgur.com/G3Pd0Mv.png

  8. Rather than the 8 1/2" x 11" roster printouts (which are great), it would be awesome to be able to have 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" cards per unit, including a photo of the mini itself.

  9. I created a 999 point roster. I then saved the roster. When I reloaded the roster is says it is now 1007 points! (it says 999 on the roster index, but 1007 when I open the roster)

    The roster was created with the latest Windows app, but both the Android and Windows versions have the same discrepancy. Both have the latest data packs installed, but that shouldn't be relevant as they didn't change between saving and loading.

    I have no idea if the bug was during the roster creation, or the loading, but one side is definitely wrong.

    I am certain that points calculations are working correctly (I’d sure know about it if this was broken!).

    My suspicion is that some data has changed in between creating the roster and loading it.

    If you load the roster, change something and change it back (this will make sure the roster is re-saved) you should find that the points value on the roster list screen reflects the correct points value.

  10. I have the Android mobile version of the app and need to print my roster from a computer that doesn't have BattleScribe downloaded. Whenever I try to print > save as PDF, it says error and try again repeatedly

  11. I have downloaded the latest version ov BS. And i have made sure all updates are current. I am running an android if tbat is important.

    I have several lists for chaos space marines, however none of the data will load. I have closed and reopened the app several times, and i have also tried to create new lists. I am able to open ALL other factions and create lists for ALL other factions. Anytime i try and do anything with CSM, the app just tells me that it is loading and spins. I waited over an hour for a…

  12. I have many lists and anytime I try to add a chaos warband as my core it gets stuck in an infinite loop. I can choose other core options just not that one.

    Make sure you go though the general troubleshooting: https://battlescribe.net/?faq=troubleshooting


    If you’re still having trouble, please tell me:

    1) What version of the app you are using
    2) What device you are using
    3) What version of iOS/Android/Windows/macOS you are using
    4) If you see an error message, what exactly does it say?
    5) What game/army you are having a problem with
    6) What exact steps I need to go through to make the problem happen.

  13. Would it be possible for you to make your new app compatible with the Old Battle Scribe Pro, as I purchased that and gave many units unique names, now that app has become outmoded and I've purchased a supporters pass for the new app, the data types seem incompatible, and I can't access them. It seems a bit frustrating as I've paid money both times. What to do?
    Thankyou for your time.
    Yours hopefully Princess.

  14. Hey guys, finally took the plunge and DL 2.0. Tried to open data indexer and data editor and it tells me the the file is damaged. Anyone know how to fix this issue. I know I'm late to the game, but better late than never.

  15. It would be nice to be able to create plugins for custom roster printing. Full Thrust for example uses a special diagram for each ship.

    This could be accomplished by feeding a xml file to stdin of the plugin. The plugin then prints the generated html file to stdout where Battle Scribe grabs it.

  16. Using an IPhone 4s, iOS 9.3.5, Battlescribe 2.00.14.

    Can't seem to import data, I've deleted and reinstalled numerous times.

    I open battlescribe, go to "find data", scroll to Warhammer 40,000. Try to add the index. Error message pops up of "System.TimeZoneNotFoundException" everytime, I have attempted to type the link in manually a few times also, but nothing seems to work.

    Please help. Thanks.

    Please make sure you install version 2.00.21 and let me know if it helps.

    If not, can you tell me what time zone you live in?

    Does the error message say anything else? The complete text exactly as shown.

  17. An entry link is visible when you select hidden on the link entry. If you select hidden in the shared selection entries area it does hide.

    When an entry is set as hidden, and the modifier to show the entry (either with a condition or not), is set to true the entry will not show.

  18. "Roster Statistics" on iPhone 5s iOS version, 10.1 and BattleScribe version 2.00.13.

    On my friends iPhone 7 his app works correctly, on mine it does not.
    On the roster view options "Roster Statistics" is checked on, but when viewing the roster there is no roster statistics at the bottom of the page.
    Need help! Thank you.

    The roster statistics are only available for Supporters, they won’t show up in the free version. That said, they aren’t 100% reliable right now and need some work. It’s on the to-do list.

  19. When I want to share rosters as images I only get an output of 5 images.

    iOS 10.0.2
    Latest Battlescribe version
