  1. Battle scribe for IPhone stops music playback

    Using version 2.01.04, when I open roster it forces iTunes to stop playing music. App itself produces no BGM so unsure why it does this. Otherwise great app

      • Cannot change the Game System that a Catalog is assigned to.

        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.

        • 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.

            • 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?

              • 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.

                      • Supreme Command detachment doesn't count HQs for multiple factions

                        When you select more than one faction for Supreme Command, it counts HQs only for the main faction, but sub-faction HQs are just ignored.
                        I've managed to reproduce it on Windows version of BattleScribe (2.01.05). Also i've tried it on Android and it is fine there, both main faction and sub-faction HQs are counted normally.

                          • Set default values in Shared Entry Groups via modifier

                            It would be wonderful if we could set default values in entry groups via a modifier. This would help GREATLY with some things like Geargroups with different entrys.
                            E.g. I have a Shared Entry with all available melee weapons to characters. But one has a Chainsword as his default gear, while the other has a Crozius Arcanum.
                            This leads to me basically being unable to use the Shared Entry Groups because this would create wrong entrys. Not using a default is cumbersome for the user.
                            In this case I had to copy a Entry Group with 3 Subgroups up to…

                              Woo I like this.

                              I can’t promise it will be soon – I suspect there’s quite a bit of work involved to get this working.

                              But you’re right – this is one of the holes in shared items, resulting in shared items not being useful.

                              Great suggestion, thanks.

                            • Allow conditions to have multiple modifiers

                              Current system has us need to do multiple modifiers, even if they all check the same condition. We should be able to set a Condition, and allow modifiers off of it also.

                              Example:
                              Condition: Has 1 selection of Juggernaut of Khorne
                              Modifiers: Direct parent has +1 T, +1 W, +1 A, and changes to Cavalry.

                                • Not working...

                                  Doesn't work. Tried multiple times to purchase IOS supporter pass but it gets stuck "Completing Purchase..". Refreshed, uninstalled and reinstalled, latest update. No obvious way to contact creators.

                                  • Add "Share with Whatsapp" option

                                    It would be amazing on mobile to allow an easy share to whatsapp and other installed apps.. just send the roster file.

                                    • 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)

                                      • BUG: Still no hard/soft menu for Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

                                        Have tried reinstalling to no avail. Hard/soft buttons work on phone version, just not on tablet.

                                        • 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.
