  1. Bug in Data Editor: Condition

    Conditions no longer work as they did before within the data file I am editing. I was using:

    <Selection Entry A>
    set Hidden to true
    If Equal to 1 Selections in Roster of <Selection Entry B>

    I am no longer able to find the entry B in the drop-down list. Pasting the unique id shows the entry but clicking away reverts to <NO CHILD>. This also happens to entries which were previously working.
    It works with the Primary Category, instead of Roster, but this is not practical for the structure of the data file or game.

    • Fix the conditional to allow for selections in roster

      This used to work in 2.00. It appears to have broken in 2.01. Basically, the user story is this:

      In the came for which I am doing the datafiles for, unit Bob can only be included if unit Alice is in the roster. So, Bob has max in roster set to 0, and then has a conditional to set it to 1 if greater than 0 selections in roster of Alice.

      However, in 2.01, if I go to add Charlie, who has the same constraints as Bob, even if I paste in the ID, it doesn't let me enter it.…

      • Bug: Multiple forces: adding units goes to wrong force

        1. If I start a new roster with multiple forces, or add a force to a working roster
        2. after adding a new unit, the new unit will not necessarily go to the force I'm adding it to. i.e. Click a unit to force 1 HQ, select unit. Unit shows up in force 2 HQ instead. Vice-versa the same issue.

        • Mobile new irritation

          Mobile: Fixig new odd behaviour in program

          Where I use context or shortcut buttons to copy or add a unit the program scrolls the way up to the top of the roster I'm editing. Very cumbersome when editing large armies. Adds minutes to otherwise simple task.

          Example: Imperium army 3 detachment. I'm scrolled far at the bottom to add some finishing dreadnoughts to my army composing of 3 full separate detachments. Done. I'm now copying the dread I added because I want another one. Program scrolls me up to the top of the other 2 armies. I have to scroll…

                I just installed the newest version of BattleScribe on PC; v2.01.04. As well as up loaded the new data files for Horus Heresy v9.0.2. When I try to create a roster of for the Legion Astartes: Age of Darkness, the program refuses to load, or crash the program.

                  Android 7.0 on a Samsung S7

                  When trying to add a Fortification or Lord of War under the Fortification Network or Super Heavy Auxiliary detachment respectively, the app will crash when they are from the Tau empire. I am able to add others without issue so far (from other armies) so not entirely sure if it is a data issue or app issue.

                    Version 2.00.17
                    Windows 10 Desktop App

                    The error i am receiving is two fold

                    1. I attempt to open an existing roster. Battlescribe will attempt to open the roster and open a blank screen that loads when you open just the application. No error Messages were given.

                    2. When I click on the open roster button, press Ctrl O or go to file and open roster. Battlescribe will close to desktop without an error message. This means I have no way of viewing or editing existing Rosters.

                      No error messages given, just a really long load time follow by crash of the app. Have deleted the app entirely and reinstalled both the app and the data files, still no luck.

                      • Make a change, back to top of roster

                        -2.01.06
                        -Android
                        -Android Version 7.0
                        -No error message, WH40K 8th Edition, all armies.
                        -Directly from the app
                        -Whenever I make a change of any kind to my roster, it flicks me back to the top of the page. I.e. copypasting entries, adding entries, removing entries etc. This makes it very frustrating to edit a list or even begin creating a list. It began approximately a month ago and never did this before.

                              This issue is inconsistent as I am unable to see the stat lines for some units during the view for warhammer 40k. For example I am able to view the dreadnought stats on one list but not another.

                                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.

                                  • make a tutorial on catalogue creation :)

                                    I have done BattleScribe catalogues from scratch before without a problem, but this time I'm stumped.

                                    I made a Game System datafile and a Catalogue datafile, included appropriate Category Entries, Force Entries and Root Selection Entries, but when I try to make a sample roster in the Roster Editor, I don't get any available entries for my selected force. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong...

                                    It could be a bug with categories (this option of primary categories sounds kinda new to me), but it could as well be me not being very smart...

                                    I'm running BattleScribe v2.01.04.92 on…

                                    • Grand Master in Nemesis Dreadknight inaccurate

                                      Hey guys,

                                      Thanks for the GK update. The Grandmaster in Nemesis dreadknight comes armed with 2 nemesis dreadknight fists, rather than paying 25+10 points for them. He also can manifest 2 psychic powers, but can actually only pick one power Sanctic discipline (rather than the two that is on battlescribe currently).

                                      • Add Court of the Archon for the Dark Eldar

                                        When I add my four Sslyth meatsh- I mean bodyguards to my list, they count against the amount of elites I may take.
                                        When they should only cost points and not take up a slot, so long as for every four there is one Archon.

                                        • Tau pathfinder point change

                                          Your pathfinders are listed at 8 points when they should be at 5. Index: xenos 2 say they come standard with markerlights, pulse carbine, and photon grenades. I believe you are changing them the marker lights.

                                          Thank you
