  1. Crash when opening or saving

    Battlescribe 2.00.17 on Win 10 crashes when trying to save or open a roster. I'm using the Warhammer 40k data files. I've tried completely removing all battlescribe files under c:\users\<username>.battlescribe adn c:\users\<username>\battlescribe as well as completely removing the program and reinstalling. Can you advise please.

      Hm not sure what’s going on here.

      Obvious first steps:

      1) Latest version of the app is 2.01.02 so make sure you update.

      2) Update your Java from www.java.com

      Once you’ve done that, please double check the issue persists. If so, please tell me if you see any error messages.

    • Battlescribe crashes on any attempt at file manipulation

      Bug report:
      I'm using the Windows version of Battlescribe, 2.00.17. Tried reinstalling, no change. I'm using the Warhammer 40,000 data files, but there seems to be no connection of that to the problem (tested using Battlefleet Gothic data files instead, no change).
      Whenever I press a wide selection of buttons on the interface, Battlescribe closes abruptly. No error message, nothing. It's as if I had simply pressed the close button. I can't be certain for obvious reasons, but I think it might be that the crash happens any time Battlescribe attempts to open the file explorer. However, running Battlescribe as…

        First suggestion is to update to the latest version of Java, just to be sure.

        Latest version of BattleScribe is 2.01.01, so make sure you’re up to date there too.

        Let me know if this helps.

          This looks like a Java error. Perhaps your installation has become corrupted.

          Try uninstalling Java and BattleScribe. Then install the latest Java followed by the latest BattleScribe.

          Let me know how you get along.

          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.

          • Can I get an answer on the application crashing on Windows 10?

            There are several so called "answers" to this problem here that involve deleting, reinstalling the program, java, data.

            I've done all of this and nothing works. When I try to open or save a roster, the program just closes.

            I paid for the app and I'd like for it to work.

              3) BattleScribe should launch with a black command window behind it. The command window will tell you where the log file is being written.
              4) Use BattleScribe and make it crash.
              5) Go to the log file. Is should contain information that will help me identify the problem.

              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.

                      • I hate the new format.

                        The new format for 8th edition is terrible. It saves on page number but that's about it. I can't see how many troops are in a given unit or what toys they have. For example I have two units with two framers each. This format just tells me that there are flames somewhere in my army. Please give me an option to use the old format used in 7th edition.

                          The program is completely unusable for many people. People have tried all of your suggestions about updating everything, deleting and reinstalling, deleting and reinstalling data..

                              • 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.…

                                    Make sure you update to version 2.01.xx – you won’t need to search the Internet for data any more.

                                    Otherwise, can you describe the actions you go through to get this error to happen?

                                  • Allow us to mix different factions with the same faction keyword (example: Aeldari)

                                    So in 8th Edition, Craftworld Eldar, Dark Eldar and Harlequin units all have the Aeldari keyword.

                                    This means that in, say, an Outrider Detachment, you're able to take any Aeldari HQ, along with Reavers, Windriders and Skyweavers. The way BattleScribe is currently set up allows you of course to take Detachments from different armies in one force, but it doesn't allow you to take units from different factions that share a Faction Keyword in one Detachment.

                                    I imagine Space Marines have a similar rule, I haven't looked into their index.

                                    I hope this gets implemented soon :) My solution would…

                                    • Impossible to export roster on Windows due to window sizing.

                                      Hi, I'm running Windows 7 64-Bit, and using Battlescribe 2.01.00 (Though this occured on the previous version, but I don't recall the version number).

                                      Basically, the window that appears when clicking "browse" when doing an export via File -> Export Roster... will be too small to use, and cannot be resized.

                                      See this screen recording to demonstrate: https://puu.sh/wdRrf/2449392d2d.mp4

                                          Make sure you sign into the app with the Google account you purchased with (heart icon) and hit the refresh button to make sure your pass is synced.

                                        • Autoselect after min/max modifier

                                          It would be a nifty QOL feature if BS could automatically select entries if the min/max are identical after a modifier... modified them.

                                          E.g. you have a min 0/max 1 in parent condition.
                                          If now a modifier applies to make the min 0 a min 1 in parent (so it is a min1/max1) it should auto set the selections of the entry to 1.
                                          Currently it "only" throws a validation error and requires user input.

                                          Not a huge issue, but with the way we had to implement cadia it could save quite a few clicks.
