  1. Allow moving unit from one force to another

    It would be awesome if, when I'm running multiple detachments, if I could easily move a unit from one detachment to another.

    • Allow favourites to be renamed after saving them

      I specifically bought Battlescribe under the understanding that I'd be able to save a unit under favorites, label it as a specific name, and use it to quickly plug those specially named units into different lists. Unfortunately, if you name a Favorited squad, it doesn't even save that special name on favorites for that list!

        I should add that there’s a workaround – custom names for favourites are saved if you name a unit before creating the favourite from it.

        You can use this to change favourite names too, Add the favourite to your list, rename it there, then re-add it as a favourite (delete the old favourite if you like).


        It certai2nly used to! This is a bug, I’ll get it fixed.

        Thanks for letting me know.

      • Chaos Marine Roster Unable to Load

        Running the latest data and version of battlescribe 2.0 on iOS 10.2.1 (iPhone 5c) and I'm unable to create a roster using the chaos marine codex. I've tried several different formations, including a basic combined arms, and each time the app gets stuck on "Creating Roster..." as the wheel continues to spin.

        • Add an "Open Recent..." item to the File menu

          "Open Recent" would remember some number of the last files you were working on, and give a shortcut to reopen those without needing to use the file browser.

            I've paid £2.99 to support iOS for 1 year but i'm still getting adverts and no access to the other things i'm supposed to.
            I'm up to date with the app.

              The program is completely unusable for many people. People have tried all of your suggestions about updating everything, deleting and reinstalling, deleting and reinstalling data..

              You have my money and I have a useless program.

                I will fix this as soon as I can identify what’s going on!

                To that end I have put out a test version of the app here: http://battlescribe.net/files/BattleScribe_2.01.03.90.BETA_Multi.zip

                1) Download and extract it to a folder on your desktop.
                2) Open the folder and double click “RosterEditor_Debug.bat”
                3) BattleScribe should launch with a black command window behind it. The command window will tell you where the log file is being written.
                4) Use BattleScribe and make it crash.
                5) Go to the log file. Is should contain information that will help me identify the problem.
                6) Email the log file to me: jon dot taylor at battlescribe dot net.

              • Maximize Roster Preview for Windows

                Currently there's no Minimize / Maximize choice for the Windows Form used for Roster Preview. Could you enable this? Not sure if you're using Visual Studio or not, could be as simple as enabling it.

                • create a minimise/maximise button for factions/armies

                  When making an faction/army a min/max button would be useful so you can minimise each faction/army so you don't need to scroll trough the list to get to the next faction/army.

                    If the rosters were printable (even just to PDF) from the Mobile app in the "View Roster" mode, people with Android tablets wouldn't have to worry about losing power during a game.

                    • 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.…

                      • Data Error, System.TimeZoneNotFoundException

                        Using an IPhone 4s, iOS 9.3.5, Battlescribe 2.00.14.

                        Can't seem to import data, I've deleted and reinstalled numerous times.

                        I open battlescribe, go to "find data", scroll to Warhammer 40,000. Try to add the index. Error message pops up of "System.TimeZoneNotFoundException" everytime, I have attempted to type the link in manually a few times also, but nothing seems to work.

                        Please help. Thanks.

                          Please make sure you install version 2.00.21 and let me know if it helps.

                          If not, can you tell me what time zone you live in?

                          Does the error message say anything else? The complete text exactly as shown.

                            I am new to Battle Scribe. For testing and learning I created a copy of a Game System and catalog. The catalog was still assigned to the old Game System. I was able to change it by manually editing the .cat file and changing the GUID the catalog was pointing to.

                            • Ubuntu .DEB Package

                              I develop stuff on apt based distributions a lot, and wouldn't mind putting together and maintaing a .deb installer package for Battlescribe. I understand that farming out installer creation to a third party brings trust issues up. Would putting the build scripts for each installer version up on github help? Anyone feeling paranoid could package it up themselves and check the MD5 listed on the main download page matches.

                              Offers there, I've already got a pro licence so I'm not doing this to wangle a free one. ;)

                                  • Simple listing of which files you have loaded / were updated

                                    Screen to show when files were last updated and what revision they're on

                                    Just to know what may have changed. Or in case of developer, that when using multiple repos, you didn't just download a catalogue you maintain but which was updated by someone else (happened to me once).

                                    As an extension in future, simple additional text field for each revision incrementation could be used to inform of what changes were made in between. Useful for everyone and hopefully not too complicated. Also then that list could have links/buttons to view changes, if listed.

                                    • Impossible to export roster on Windows due to window sizing.

                                      Hi, I'm running Windows 7 64-Bit, and using Battlescribe 2.01.00 (Though this occured on the previous version, but I don't recall the version number).

                                      Basically, the window that appears when clicking "browse" when doing an export via File -> Export Roster... will be too small to use, and cannot be resized.

                                      See this screen recording to demonstrate: https://puu.sh/wdRrf/2449392d2d.mp4

                                      • Fix screen rotation issue when creating a roster on Android

                                        When creating a new roster with battlescribe on android if the screen rotates it appears to undo your progress, take you back to the catalogue select screen and display duplicate catalogues.
