        Sorry to keep you waiting. Just to let you know this is still on the to-do list, but I have a big update in the works right now!


        Looks like an Android update broke this :/ I’ll see what I can do…

      • 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…

        • .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

          • Bug: Crashing w/ Horus Heresy

            No error message, just crashes every time I try to create a new list or view an existing one. Happening with both my iPad and Android phone.
            -Battlescribe 2.01.05 (both)
            -Horus Heresy 9.0.1 (both)
            -iPad 2, iOS 9.3.5
            -phone is android 5.1

            No error messages given, just a really long load time follow by crash of the app. Have deleted the app entirely and reinstalled both the app and the data files, still no luck.

            • Mobile new irritation

              Mobile: Fixig new odd behaviour in program

              Where I use context or shortcut buttons to copy or add a unit the program scrolls the way up to the top of the roster I'm editing. Very cumbersome when editing large armies. Adds minutes to otherwise simple task.

              Example: Imperium army 3 detachment. I'm scrolled far at the bottom to add some finishing dreadnoughts to my army composing of 3 full separate detachments. Done. I'm now copying the dread I added because I want another one. Program scrolls me up to the top of the other 2 armies. I have to scroll…

                • 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?

                        • 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.

A bonus to this would be to allow me to only turn on such notifications for certain days (ie. Thursday, Fri and Sat or M, W, Sun etc. etc.).

                                    • Translate the app

                                      Event though English is one of the most spokeb languages around the world, I'd like to see the app having the option to change the language eg. French, spanish, German, and some more maybe.
                                      As I know that's a lot of work, I'd suggest implementing this in the paid version.
                                      Cheers.

                                        Translation is on the to-do list.

                                        Please bear in mind that most text is in the data files. To get the best out of this, you would need to also form a community to create data in various languages.

                                        The appspot data site is open source of anyone wants to host versions for different languages.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Add game setup / tracking / management features

                                          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
                                          - record wounds/hull point
                                          - record vehicle damage
                                          - record unit marker ( Go into ground, stunned, etc..)
