  1. 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.

            • 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…

                • Create a new wargamer finder app. A wargaming "tinder" if you will

                  Create a new related app that allows me to enter the games I play, where I am, and an ability to say "looking for a game" and be notified when other players in a search radius of my choosing (25, 50, 100 mi, etc etc) are also looking for a game. 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.). Essentially a tinder but to specifically find wargamers (with possibilities to expand to RPGs, Board Games, and Card Games) interested…

                    • .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

                        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)

                        -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.

                          • Fix the conditional to allow for selections in roster

                            This used to work in 2.00. It appears to have broken in 2.01. Basically, the user story is this:

                            In the came for which I am doing the datafiles for, unit Bob can only be included if unit Alice is in the roster. So, Bob has max in roster set to 0, and then has a conditional to set it to 1 if greater than 0 selections in roster of Alice.

                            However, in 2.01, if I go to add Charlie, who has the same constraints as Bob, even if I paste in the ID, it doesn't let me enter it.…

                                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…

                                  A new window anchored to the description of what we have selected.
                                  this new window replaces the pop window

                                  • Bug in Data Editor: Condition

                                    Conditions no longer work as they did before within the data file I am editing. I was using:

                                    <Selection Entry A>
                                    set Hidden to true
                                    If Equal to 1 Selections in Roster of <Selection Entry B>

                                    I am no longer able to find the entry B in the drop-down list. Pasting the unique id shows the entry but clicking away reverts to <NO CHILD>. This also happens to entries which were previously working.
                                    It works with the Primary Category, instead of Roster, but this is not practical for the structure of the data file or game.

                                    • 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?

                                      • Keep unit lists collapsed after selecting a new unit

                                        I think this might have been an unintended change at some point, but when collapsing the unit entry menus on the left (such as troops and elites for 40k) selecting a unit to add to your list immediately re-expands all menus and sub-menus that you have hidden.

                                        It is handy to be able to keep the menus hidden, as I like to rule out what I don't need to add anymore of as I build my list. Thanks.

                                          Allow multiple entries to be selected for copying and pasting in the catalogue editor rather than just one at a time
