  1. Allow multiple rosters in a single detachment.

    For example, if I want to build a primarily Deathwatch army, I have to build a separate Auxiliary Detachment (-1CP) to attach a Xiphon (FW Astartes) instead of simply attaching the Xiphon to my primary Battalion Detachment, which is currently limited to pulling from a single roster (Deathwatch), even though the rules should allow a Xiphon to be a Deathwatch unit because IA lists it with keyword <Chapter>. Or, say I wanted to build a Vanguard Detachment with 3 assassins led by an inquisitor. I haven't found a way to do that either. Am
    I missing something, or can Battlescribe…

  3. Full supplementary data

    In previous versions (1.5.1 something). You could view the roster and all the supplementary data for character/ unit profiles would be displayed so you wouldn't need to reference the book. Please put this feature back or correct this. Currently running BattleScribe 2.01.06. Currently running android 6.0.1 on a blackberry PRIV

  4. Battlescribe create roster not working Windows 10

    I have updated Java, I have updated to the latest version of BS. I have refreshed my data.

    When I go to create a roster, make my selections and click ok, the program just hangs. After a few moments, the ok and cancel buttons become clickable again, but nothing else happens.

  7. 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.

  8. Not loading rosters

    Whenever I try to load a new roster for editing, I select the army composition and move to click OK and it just sits there. No response whatsoever. Can you help?

  9. 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.

  10. Issue with displaying stats when in view

    This issue is inconsistent as I am unable to see the stat lines for some units during the view for warhammer 40k. For example I am able to view the dreadnought stats on one list but not another.

  12. BattleScribe on PC should recognize your default browser and use that, instead of forcing internet explorer.

    Trying to sign in with my google account to verify my license, Battlescribe insists on opening internet explorer, and current gets caught in some kind of redirect loop that never ends, so I am stuck. Either prompt for browser or let me log into google from battlescribe.

    BattleScribe should already use your default browser. Are you sure IE is not your default?

    BattleScribe defers to your operating system to choose a browser, which should be whatever your default is.

    You can email me at jon dot taylor at battlescribe dot net

  13. add unicode support for the main windows in addition to dropdowns

    Dropdowns currently show unicode properly but the main windows do not.

    http://prntscr.com/fqaq0t

    Either that or let data entries override dropdown alphabetisation on a case by case basis.

  14. BUG REPORT:

    Jon,

    I recently bought a Windows 10, 64 bit machine. I reinstalled Battlescribe and attempted to transfer my account (mgac21z@gmail.com). It should be good until September of this year. Do you know what may be causing this?

    I received the following error.

    Apologies for the delay.

    This looks like a timeout while BattleScribe waits for your browser to respond after logging in.

    Do you have a firewall or something that might be restricting BattleScribe from receiving connections from the internet?

    Feel free to email me: jon dot taylor at battlescribe dot net

  15. latest version of battlescribe from today, paid version 6/26.

    on the page with your army lists, the orange, "+" icon in a circle is almost totally obscured by the rectangle at the bottom of the page that used to contain ads. very difficult to create new army lists now.

  16. iOS remove - Refreshes likes crasy

    The app currently refreshes/loads everywhere and showing a throbber/loading indicator (use dropbox). Please remove the constantly refreshes and silently sync the data. In almost every case for me the data is added in the app so there is no need for syncing except adding backup to dropbox.

    Seems like BattleScribe could not connect to the data website.

    It might have been an issue with the website – try again and see if things are any better.

    Otherwise, do you have a firewall or something else that might prevent BattleScribe from connecting to the Internet?

    Now in 8th ed Warhammer guns do d6 d3 or higher number of shots. I'd like to add that mechanic to the tool. No just 3+ 6+ but d3 and such. Same for wounds
