    • Make preview pop ups only when clicking or mousing over a special icon next to the entry.

      Put a small eye icon inline next to each unit in a list, or anything you want to have a pop up preview/tooltip on.

      When the user mouses over this icon, only then will the pop up appear. Likewise, as soon as the user moves the mouse off the icon (even if it is under the pop up) the pop up goes away.

      Then, make the option such that the pop up only appears when clicking on the icon.

      • Manige favoruited/costumized units.

        It would be nice with a tab outside the roster lists where you can review all your favourited units. And in that tab add, costumize or delete favorute units.

            • 500 Internal Server Error

              I am having this error message appear on my iPad (iOS version 11.3.1) on the latest version of BattleScribe (latest version 2.01.17) when I attempt to update/start to look for repositories.

              I have already attempted deleting/redownloading the app and clearing all data on the app before trying again, but every time the app asks if I want to download some repositories, it gives me the following error message:

              Error

              > The remote server returned an error:

              • When importing a data file without importing the system GST file, a unhelpfull java-error is produced

                I understand that an error should occur, but it would be great if a helpful message was displayed for the user, informing them they need to import the system file before any force files.

                The current message appears to be a java stack trace which did not tell me I needed to import the force file first.

                Version "BattleScribe v2.01.08.96"
                Windows 10
                (I was using the runewars data files, setting up development on a new machine)

                  • Change Order of Items Printed

                    At the moment (since a few weeks/months), the entries printed seem out of order. Referring to 40k lists, it now shows me flyers first, then ded. transports, then heavy support and so on

                    i still like to have either the ability to sort the printing orders myself (i.e. HQ first, then Troops (inkl. dedicated Transports), then Fast Attack/Heavy Support and so on

                    would help me organize my files/sheets of paper better to be able to group before printing or rearrange the outcome

                      • Error loading data

                        Hi there,

                        I'm running Battlescribe version 2.01.04 which appears to be the latest version on the App Store.

                        My iPhone 5S is running iOS 10.3.3

                        I keep getting the following error when I try to get data from 'manage data':

                        > error getting response stream
                        (ReadHeaders)
                        ServerProtocolViolation

                        I get the above error once when trying to get data through 'manage data' but it lists the error twice when I try to log into my account on my iPhone.

                        I don't have any other steps to des rove other than going to the menu, pressing 'manage data', it says I don't…

                          The printouts page break in the middle of units with tremendous blank spaces between. Why is fast attack first? There really isn't much thought to the end product that we actually use in games.

                          • Create Roster Fails

                            I am having this issue in both Windows 10 build 15063 and Android 6.0.1

                            I am using Battle Scribe v2.01.04.92 on Windows and v2.01.06 on Android.

                            I am able to select the Game System, Roster Name, Cost Limits and Forces, but when I click OK the program hangs for several minutes and then returns me to the default window and no Roster has been created.

                              Make sure you update your data and have the latest version of the app. Make sure you choose the option to delete your old data when you update to make sure you don’t have a broken file.

                              On Windows, make sure you update to the latest version of Java 8 (there was a bug in older versions that effected BattleScribe).

                              Otherwise can you b give me a specific example of the game and forces you’re trying to use so I can test.

                            • 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.

                                  I’m not sure what’s going on here. The only thing I can think of is that you don’t have permission to access that folder. Are you able to browse to it?

                                  It might be worth deleting the folder (/Users/andrewmoran/BattleScribe/data) by hand and downloading your data again.

                                  Please update this issue to let me know how you get along.

                                  • 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.

                                    • How about "create list" as a fucking option.

                                      This app is absolute garbage. You cant make lists on here. Its not intuitive if it was ever meant to work at all. I want my fucking money back.
