  1. BattleScribe is crashing on iphone

    I'm running BattleScribe 2.01.05 on iOS 10.3.3 on an iPhone 6, the app crashes after 1-2 seconds when either trying to create a new roster or open any of my existing rosters. 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.

            • 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.

              • 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:

                    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?

                      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

                        • 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.

                                • Add Court of the Archon for the Dark Eldar

                                  When I add my four Sslyth meatsh- I mean bodyguards to my list, they count against the amount of elites I may take.
                                  When they should only cost points and not take up a slot, so long as for every four there is one Archon.

                                  • Fix android auto-scroll up and multiple data bugs.

                                    S7. 2.1.06 Whenever I add or remove a unit, it auto-scrolls up to the top. Really annoying. Also it spams "you do not have any data files" despite the fact that I can ignore the message and make lists with 7th or 8th 40k rules. The closest thing in the data list is the 8th 40k mobile version that is missing half of the armies. I can't update 7th or 8th as I "don't have them" as far as the app is aware. I tried deleting data in too many ways to count. Didn't work. Apparently other people are having…

                                      • 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.

                                          If you quickly press back after selecting a radio button option the entry greys out and anything added will be put in said unit/option.
