@whiskeyjuvenile he kind of can't. it's a commercial project, he lives from it, but the income can't cover more than him. so he feels it'd be wrong to accept contributions for free if he takes money.

I'm happy to help for free; I have a real job
i mean I get it on the one hand; on the other hand, battlescribe functioning plays a large part in the hobby working

yeah, same here. I'd help too, I kind of get why he won't allow, and it's driving me crazy.
so, @whiskeyjuvenile , do you know C#?

I'll need help soon, in C#. I prepare new package of apps for BattleScribe format.

ok
i had a format suggestion, btw, to unify catalogue files with game system selection: have a field in the catalogue with something like <system id=[GUID] /> and multiple copies of <detachment id=[GUID] />
and then obviously allowing modifiers on detachment type

huh?

so remember there was some discussion about putting game system and catalogue in the same file or something
like it'd be easier to figure out what catalogue is usable with which force type?

@amis92
Dec 17 2015 13:32
yup, it's quite done AFAIK
William

he shares sometimes progress on Twitter
oh, so:
I've got functioning data structure, roster editor UI, but there is a huge work required to validate conditions and apply modifiers
never imagined it's so damn complicated, all those hiddens, changing limits, validating etc

I aim to release it for Christmas
(the catalogue editor)
but also coming would be desktop (win8/10) UI for cat editor
UI is the easiest part here, actually.
my plan is to make everything except UI open source, to get help solving bugs and improvements

that'd also allow for other copycat apps, but I'm all ready for it, if this helps us all improve the innards.

Anything's better than this stagnation we have now.
