  1. Honor Windows DisplayScaling

    Windows display scaling does not seem to work properly for battlescribe - text is too small, too large, or badly kerned - sometimes all at the same time. An issue can be seen at https://imgur.com/srTyViB along with my display settings.

      This appears to be an issue with Java that I don’t have control over. This may change with a future Java update (I’ll keep an eye out).

      Otherwise I’ll have to explore other user interface options, although changing to a different UI system is a massive job!

      I’ll be reviewing options.

    • 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.

      • Bug: Multiple forces: adding units goes to wrong force

        1. If I start a new roster with multiple forces, or add a force to a working roster
        2. after adding a new unit, the new unit will not necessarily go to the force I'm adding it to. i.e. Click a unit to force 1 HQ, select unit. Unit shows up in force 2 HQ instead. Vice-versa the same issue.

          • 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

            • 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.)

              • Add ability to disable (not delete) a detachment

                Is it possible to make it so you can disable a detachment, removing it's points and other conditions from the total cost and list legality check? It would make it much easier to experiment with multiple formation lists and keep variations without having to delete and re-create them or have multiple save files (sort of like a side board).

                  • Favorites need to have global option

                    Can we please get an option to mark favorite units/formations that are saved to favorites as global use? Currently when you favorite something its only available to that particular category you are working under. Optionally, the ability to just copy/paste favorites from once favorites category to another would work as well.

                      This might not be possible. The favourites still need to match up appropriately with the data structure.

                      I may be able to do something by making use of shared items, but no guarantees.

                    • 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 combined print just models

                        If you're putting together large rosters with multiple formations across multiple detachments with the same model then the print view separates them by unit/formation/detachment.

                        I'd like to see a print view that showed me just which models I need to grab out of my collection grouped by wargear.

                        Instead of:

                        Broodlord's Hunting Pack
                        Genestealer Brood [Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer]
                        Genestealer Brood [Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer]
                        Genestealer Brood [Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer, Genestealer]

                        30xGenestealer

                          • Remove deprecated catalogues from a repository

                            There are times when a repository removes certain old catalogues such as when a newer edition of the book comes out. If Battlescribe can remember which catalogue is provided by which repository, it can remove old catalogues that are no longer supplied by the repository.

                              At this point Battlescribe is our favourite tool to build up an army and share it with our friends ( or foe , if you dosn't trust them).

                              I would like to have ( maybe in premium edition ) some tools to keep track of the mission.
                              here same example:
                              - record wounds/hull point
                              - record vehicle damage

                              - victory point

                              We could have an mission entry to define and build up a mission ( with points, objective, special rules,etc).

                                    Hey!

                                    When you view the profile of Logan Grimnar on Stormrider, the damage chart of the Stormrider is empty in the section of "additional attacks".

                                    Also, when in the profile of both Lone Wolf and Lone Wolf in Terminator Armour I select Stormshield and a melee weapon the app says that it is an invalid selection meanwhile the Index says that it is valid.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Catalogue Editor: Mac Cut & Paste are missing

                                      It seems that the entire standard Mac Edit menu is missing. Please implement the standard system call to allow the menu and I think you'll get all the functions for free.

                                        When trying to view the roster in the editor it will change to plain text from the drop down, but when viewing its in html and on going back into the settings it has defaulted back to html.

                                        • Crash- adding Fortification or Lord of war

                                          Android 7.0 on a Samsung S7
                                          App version 2.01.02
                                          Using Warhammer 40,000 8th edition info v1.08 (updated today) taken directly from inside the app, which pulled from https://github.com/BSData/wh40k
                                          Error message: Battlescribe has stopped.

                                          When trying to add a Fortification or Lord of War under the Fortification Network or Super Heavy Auxiliary detachment respectively, the app will crash when they are from the Tau empire. I am able to add others without issue so far (from other armies) so not entirely sure if it is a data issue or app issue.

                                          To reproduce: create a Tau list, add Fortification Network and/or…
