  1. 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.

    • Add Win/Loss tracking

      I'd like to be able to add my lists, and then record games played with that list, including Win/Loss/Draw and perhaps some notes. This way I can test various lists out and keep stats on them right in the app without having to resort to manual stat tracking.

            • 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.

                Would it be possible to implement a tab-system where you can keep multiple rosters open at the same time?

                • .ros file association on desktop

                  I'm just getting started with 40k again so I'm planning out multiple forces. It would be useful to be able to just double click the .ros files to open the RosterEditor rather than having to open that and then navigate to the .ros file.

                  It seems possible to pass the value via the batch file but the jar file does not seem to do anything with a path to a .ros file

                  • Add a custom unit entry option.

                    To help users keep up with the speed of new unit releases (weekly now, in some cases), and to help alleviate the burden on community catalogue creators, allow manual and custom entries to be added to a roster.

                    As an example, a user could open up a unit type / role option(HQ, Elite, etc) and there would be a "Custom Entry" selection. When selected, one could just manually enter stats, a total point value, and some miscellaneous text to define a new unit that has yet to be created in a catalogue. This would also help users who create custom…

                        • Dice Tool Reroll 1s

                          Many rules grant the ability to reroll dice rolls of a particular result, like rerolling 1s. This is different to just getting a flat out reroll of failed results. Could this be added to the dice tool/calculator alongside multipliers, modifiers and rerolls?

                                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.

                                  • "Unable to create directory" MacOS 10.12.4

                                    While attempting to run the program on Mac, I encountered this problem. Immediately after opening the application, a window called "An Error Has Occurred" pops up stating the following error

                                    Details:

                                    • Include features that would assist with game setup (mission roller, warlord trait roller, table setup roller, etc)

                                      Add features that could expedite game setup. Also possibly add a mass (many) dice roller as an options for those who may prefer a digital option to rolling dice (for w/e reason). All of the features Im suggesting are listed below.

                                      turn counter
                                      points keeper/victory points calculator
                                      dice roller (capable of rolling many dice at once and displaying a summary of the results)
                                      warlord trait roller
                                      table setup roller
                                      mission roller

                                          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.

                                        • Show in the output if a list is valid or invalid

                                          When the program shows that a list is valid or invalid, it should show this in the output somewhere. Maybe under the roster name and point value print Valid, or Invalid because (and list the errors in the list.)
