  1. Allow position of entries to be defined

    At the moment, entries are sorted alphanumerically. I think it would be useful to allow the data file author to define exactly the order in which entries are listed. If no order is defined, then it can default back to the alphanumeric order.

      Initially I thought this would be a problem to implement – should a data file author dictate to a user what order the entries appear?

      Thinking more about it however, I think the solution here is to let the user decide. Instead of the data file author rearranging the entries in the data files, I think it would be better to allow the user to rearrange the selections in their list.

        Java does not correctly handle high DPI/resolution screens on Windows. Unfortunately it’s not something I can change. I believe future versions of Java should fix this.

        One option for now is to change your screen resolution in the Windows settings to be 50% of your screen’s natural resolution. I realise this is not ideal, but it does work.

      • Allow entry groups to have multiple default entries

        When I select Captain for Space Marines rooster I allways have to adjust wargear (because Captain has too few selections from Weapons). It would be nice if we could mark default options in the Catalogue.

          Default weapons do work if the entry group is min 0/max 0. The problem at the moment is that if you want more than one default, there is no way to enter it. It would be good to allow a number of defaults up to the minimum selections of the entry group.

          I will look into this in the future, but for now it does not have a high impact, so it’ll have to wait.

        • Catalogue editor: modifier to set "selections"

          In the catalogue editor you can set modifiers to change minSelections, maxSelection, but not current roster selection.

          For example:
          Unit
          - Joe (min: 4, max: 4)
          - Jane (upgrade, min 0: max: 1)

          1) I can currently set a modifier on Joe to make minSelection and maxSelection become 3 when Jane is selected (modifier being 'set' or 'decrement') and using a conditional.
          Problem: Joe has a up-down number textbox, if we check Jane you have to manually select 3 Joe's.

          2) By using the repeat option of the modifier, I get the same result as above. (NOTE: if using the…

            I think this could be done. Bear in mind adding/removing items from the roster is not as simple as just setting the count. That said, it could probably be done via the current add/remove mechanism to achieve what you’re asking.

          • 2.01.17 is busted

            I posted earlier that the newest update caused Battlescribe to crash when I hit the "New roster" button. The admin lied and said 2.01.17 fixed the issue. On iOS, 2.01.17 is the version that STARTED having that issue for me. My only way to make a roster now is to duplicate and edit one I already had, meaning it's impossible for me to make one for a force I don't have a saved roster for.

              Update: so far I’ve been unable to reproduce the issue on version 2.01.17 so any additional feedback would be useful (see below). I’ve had confirmation that 2.01.17 fixed things for most people, so it appears this is a different issue.

              One thought, make sure the app is not running in the background, then relaunch BattleScribe to make sure you’re using the latest version.

              Just in case, it might be helpful to delete and re-dowload your data as described here: https://battlescribe.net/?faq=refreshData


              Please MAKE SURE you have updated to version 2.01.17 from the app store. This fixed a particular crash when creating a new roster. You can see the version you have by going to the Menu and choosing “About”. If this fixes things, please update your comment and/or remove your votes from this issue.

              If you ARE SURE you are on 2.01.17 and you still experience a crash, please provide the…

                Windows display scaling does not seem to work properly for battlescribe - text is too small, too large, or badly kerned - sometimes all at the same time. An issue can be seen at https://imgur.com/srTyViB along with my display settings.

                  This appears to be an issue with Java that I don’t have control over. This may change with a future Java update (I’ll keep an eye out).

                  Otherwise I’ll have to explore other user interface options, although changing to a different UI system is a massive job!

                  I’ll be reviewing options.

                    • Favorites need to have global option

                      Can we please get an option to mark favorite units/formations that are saved to favorites as global use? Currently when you favorite something its only available to that particular category you are working under. Optionally, the ability to just copy/paste favorites from once favorites category to another would work as well.

                        This might not be possible. The favourites still need to match up appropriately with the data structure.

                        I may be able to do something by making use of shared items, but no guarantees.

                          I won’t make any promises, but I may look into this in the future. It makes it more complicated to add more payment options to the website.

                          That said, you can purchase passes for the desktop version on mobile platforms through Google Play etc. Perhaps this will work for you?

                              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.

                                  • create a minimise/maximise button for factions/armies

                                    When making an faction/army a min/max button would be useful so you can minimise each faction/army so you don't need to scroll trough the list to get to the next faction/army.

                                    • Data Error, System.TimeZoneNotFoundException

                                      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.

                                        I am a current supporter, have about a month left and after everytime I do something ie switch between lists I get raped by an add telling me to support even when I click not now. This is stupid and makes me NOT want to support.

                                          Sorry if you’ve had trouble. This isn’t intended behaviour, it’s probably a bug.

                                          This was a bug some time ago, which I fixed at the time. Can you confirm the version of the app you’re using? Any updates to do?

                                          (FWIW the plan is to notify of impending pass expiry once 30 days before, once 7 days before and finally once when the pass expires. I don’t want to spam! I would be annoyed by this too…)

                                          I've received the following error message
                                          Failed to sign in with Google.
                                          null

                                          I am using an Android LG 4.

                                          This persists after attempting to pay for a year's support on Android (which I was charged for)
                                          Or just navigating to main view on the app.

                                          This error appears as both a toast and a dialog.
