  1. Unit/squad size in header with points value

    Just another thought would it also be possible to have a squad count (total number of models) in a selection. As in below example. (Size XX)

    eg
    Troops (35 PL, 318pts)
    -- Acolyte Hybrids (15 PL, 152pts, Size 12)
    + 11x Acolyte Hybrids (121pts)
    + Acolyte Leader (11pts)

  2. BUG Report. Renaming

    When i renamed an entry changing only captions (f.e. from "DKOK" to "DKoK") it asked if i would like to Rewrite as name already existed.
    Then BattleScribe erased both entries.

    Thanks.

    My first thought is a corrupted data file.

    Go to Manage Data, and update your data – make sure you choose the option to delete your old data first. This should ensure your data files are all replaced with fresh ones.

    Please let me know if this resolves your issue.

  4. Details: java.io.IOException: Unable to create directory /Users/andrewmoran/BattleScribe/data at org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.forceMkdi

    I have not seen any way to fix this problem on line. It started when I updated yesterday. I am using date I got from you. I am only using Warhammer 40 8th and HH30k

    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.

  5. Bug: stuck on low memory mode?

    G'day guys.
    I've been using battlescribe for ages and it's always worked well but just recently when I Messing around with a Horus Heresy list the app seemed to run slow, informed me that it was running in low memory mode and stopped displaying profiles, rules etc in the display.

    I immediately turned off low memory mode, changed the display settings for profiles etc, reinstalled battlescribe and even deleted all data/rosters in an effort to bring my rosters back to normal to no avail.

    One thing I did notice was it was only affecting new rosters and unit options. My…

    This might be because the data doesn’t yet contain the profile/rule information. Make sure you update your data regularly for the latest fixes.

    It may be the case that low-memory mode just gets turned back on. This will happen if the app runs into trouble with large/complex army lists or data.

    Once you open a roster, the rules/profiles should be refreshed (assuming low memory mode is off). You might need to add/remove a selection just to give it a kick.

  6. Add more information when downloading data

    Add progress when downloading data and user friendly message say whether downloading will continue in background or not (much like hearthstone)

  7. 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.

  8. Display base price of an entry

    It would be nice to see the base price of a unit. So a Basilisk costs 108 pts, which is 100pts for the Basilisk, and 8pts for the Heavy bolter. It would be really useful to display that 100pts somewhere. It's kinda straightforward for a basilisk, but lot more complicated for a Leman Russ, or even so for a Tank commander.

  14. can't change, delete detachments

    I can't delete a detachment once a rooster is created. I get the message that a roster must have I've detachment. When I try to add an additional detachment, it will only create that detachment as a parent of the original detachment.

  17. allow profile characteristic types to be reordered in the catalogue editor

    every time i need to add a new charaterisc type to an existing profile, either i leave it as the last field (which isn't always pleasing); or i can add it, delete all the previous characteristic types which i don't want preceeding it and create anew all the the deleted types (which not only is troublesome, but it will also force me to reenter all the data for every unit that uses this profile).

    it's not very practical...

  19. BUG! Win version of BS

    I keep repeatedly getting this error message. once when I open, once when I click new roster, and twice when i select system - no systems show in the selection field when I do this, and yes, I have latest version and all data files are up to date.
    I have also tried a clean reinstall and I am unable to get data-files, so right now, dead in the water. PC version seems hosed.

  20. Disconnect Between Roster Details (iOS) and File Name on Windows with DropBox

    Thank you again and the community for the hard work.

    First the basics:
    (1) I have BattleScribe pro deployed on both Windows 2010 laptop and my iOS device(s).
    (2) I have all devices configured to utilize DropBox
    (3) I can see the rosters that I create.
    (4) All devices and apps appear to be up to date.

    The Challenge(s):
    However, I'm noticing that if I create a roster on my laptop, I'm unable to update the "details" information for the roster. It'll show up on my iOS device, and I'm able to update the "details" information on my iOS device…
