  1. Bug: app crash and disappearing data files

    I'm having some odd behaviors on my current version of BattleScribe. I've kept it up to date-- running 2.00.14-- and am using it on an iPhone 7 running iOS 10.2 (build 14C92).

    When I launch the app, I get a message that I have no data files. I downloaded some from the usual source, http://battlescribedata.appspot.com/#/repos

    ...and then it seems to recognize all of my data files at once, as soon as I import anything from that site.

    The thing is, once I try to make a list, as soon as I set the points value, the app crashes. When I…

    • make a data repository update check everytime on startup

      Especially when new rules are released, the good people who make the data files update them quite frequently. A weekly update check during such time is about as useful as no automatic checks because you end up having to check manually anyways.

        I reduced this to a week to reduce the load on the servers hosting the data. Also, on mobile, this could be a problem with regard to data limits.

        I’ll look into rethinking this though, and perhaps introduce more options to control how often this happens.

      • Add a "Collapse All Entries" option

        Normally, when opening a new roster, all entries and sub-entries are expanded; it would be nice to be able to collapse them all at once without clicking each arrow individually. Ideally, there'd be an option like this available by clicking on each expanded entry so you could, say, collapse all the entries under just one detachment, or just one unit.

        • get it to display more than a blank screen, or at least revert to previous and actually useable versions.

          if it would actually display a roster it might be useful. As-is it's not.

          • Add exploding dice to the dice tools

            Hi I feel that the dice tool would benefit from having the exploding dice mechanic(adding another roll upon the roll of a certain value, usually 6). This would be useful for the game systems developed by Spartan Games and Mantic.

              I seem to have Battlescribe be detected as a virus by norton (just tried to update to 2.00.12) is this a known issue?

              • Trouble syncing between devices

                Hi Jon,
                My devices are not syncing rosters (iPhone & iPad). Both devices show my subscription to 7 Jan 2010, yet rosters drafted on one device do not transfer when I press the sync button, it just takes me to the page I can buy yet more subscription.
                Please advise solution?
                Thanks

                  Bug: cannot get passed force choice. I.e. roster name: Orcs&Gobos / 1000 points / Mordheim. choice of force: unable to make selection / OrcMob ver#??
                  Cannot get passed that step. Have reinstalled and downlaoded data files 5 times each. read all threads I could find. even a couple tutorials on youtube. If I choose anything other than Mordheim and choose orc's it is twitchy with random errors

                    • Re-add paypal payment option

                      I really like your new support system, but credit card is not popular everywhere. Thus I ask you to add other payment options like paypal. If this is already possible somehow I apologize, I cannot seem to find how.

                        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?

                      • Part of texts just dissapears

                        Part of texts just dissapears. For example, after I move the mouse through the line of options such as "File", "Options", etc. just disappears, though I still can click at it. The same thing with options of changing roster - about a half of every position just disappears, and it happens with every piece of text in the application

                        • Allow Compound Conditions

                          I'd like to have a condition where a single selection "owns" multiple entries. For example, Force Type contains Entry that owns Entry X and Entry Y.

                          I posted a forum topic with a broader example: http://forum.battlescribe.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=968&p=3460#p3436

                          • Remove the appended string when a condition has 'equal to 0 selections'.

                            When a condition is set to 'equal to 0 selections', it will append the name of the entry with the selection in question. So, say a Chapter Master with a modifier that has a condition of equal to 0 selections for storm shield, the name changes to 'Chapter Master (Storm Shield)' when no storm shield is selected

                                  The new Battlescribe 2.0 is completely broken and ruined a perfectly good army building application.

                                  I've been trying to create a simply Horus Heresy 30k list for days now, and I keep running into errors that make it impossible.

                                  As you can see the list thinks I've already spent 3000pts on Lord of Wars alone, without any actual units taken:

                                      • Profile modifiers with conditions not working

                                        I'm using the latest 2.x and have the following setup in the Data Editor:

                                        - Commander (Entry, min 1, max 1)
                                        ---Weapon Option (Group Entry, min 1, max 1, Default Rifle)
                                        ------Machette (max 1)
                                        ------Rifle (Max 1)
                                        ---Commander (Profile)
                                        ------append A with (X)
                                        ---------If Equal To 1 Selection in Parent of Machette

                                        When I select Machette and view the roster, the Profile for the Commander does not show (X). If I remove the condition, it works. I've tried other conditions (>1, at least 1) and still does not work.

                                        This used to work in 1.x

                                        "set A..." does not appear…

                                            This means that something is wrong with your data. The catalogue files (catz) need to be in the same folder as the appropriate game system file (gstz).

                                            These catalogue files need to be correctly associated with the game system file by ID (inside the catalogue file).

                                            Your data folder structure is wrong or else someone has fiddled with the ID values inside the files.

                                            You can try deleting and re-downloading your data as an easy fix: http://www.battlescribe.net/help-faq.html#RefreshData
