  1. 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…

    • Allow us to mix different factions with the same faction keyword (example: Aeldari)

      So in 8th Edition, Craftworld Eldar, Dark Eldar and Harlequin units all have the Aeldari keyword.

      This means that in, say, an Outrider Detachment, you're able to take any Aeldari HQ, along with Reavers, Windriders and Skyweavers. The way BattleScribe is currently set up allows you of course to take Detachments from different armies in one force, but it doesn't allow you to take units from different factions that share a Faction Keyword in one Detachment.

      I imagine Space Marines have a similar rule, I haven't looked into their index.

      I hope this gets implemented soon :) My solution would…

      • I am Having a problem with Version 2.00.17

        Version 2.00.17
        Windows 10 Desktop App

        The error i am receiving is two fold

        1. I attempt to open an existing roster. Battlescribe will attempt to open the roster and open a blank screen that loads when you open just the application. No error Messages were given.

        2. When I click on the open roster button, press Ctrl O or go to file and open roster. Battlescribe will close to desktop without an error message. This means I have no way of viewing or editing existing Rosters.

        • create a "group by" sorting option

          I think you should be able to group your lists by things like race, points, or (custom) events. Also a filter option so I can filter all lists for race points and (custom) event.
          I just find I have 100's of lists and it's hard sometimes to find the one I want

          • Allow upgrades to be collective across several model types in a parent unit or group.

            At the moment, collective upgrades work really badly in the following situation: (Imaginary example)

            A unit has 2 or more different types of model (say, swordsmen and shieldbearers). There's a single collective upgrade (wearing helmets) which should be collective across both - either all models in the unit have it, or none do.

            At the moment there's no way to handle this which isn't annoying for the end user. The best that can be done is to repeat the upgrade for each model type, with consistency modifiers that set a minimum on each model type if it's taken on any…

                        • 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.

                            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.

No error messages appear the app just closes. I just updated my iOS software this was also an issue in 10.2 and I've tried restarting my iPhone.

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
