@hisop What version number are you referencing for "Also a general question, on git hub users can reference a file EG: File: Necrons - Codex (2015).catz can we have the version number amended onto the end of this at all? it will make diagnosis quicker for many reports."

likely the data file version number. If they're running v15 of a data file, but v18 has been released already and has resolved the bug, it's an easy solution. Have them update their files.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 18 2016 02:20
Yeah, I haven't seen any way to specify that in the bug report.

It has potential.
@cartag What does the 'pre-release' checkbox do in regards to releases? Anything?
Other than flag it as 'Pre-Release'
cartag
@cartag
Feb 18 2016 02:25
what prerelease checkbox?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 18 2016 02:27
When you're drafting a new release. There is a 'Pre-Release' checkbox at the bottom.

My understanding for it would be that is something you can use to mark a release a certain way so it will not go to people who have it marked to only sync actual releases, but testers can get it pushed to them if they're working on stuff. It's something useful for the rest of git but in this particular case may not do much

If that's flagged will it get published to appspot?
cartag
@cartag
Feb 18 2016 02:31
I have no idea if it will or not. Every time I've pushed a release, it has been unchecked. It will not be instantaneous going to appspot

More just a curiosity about how the various interface options affect the overall process.

Does anybody working on the SW update actually have the book, or are you just going off rumor sites? I ask, because the leak named the formation The Blackmanes, but that's not a Core choice for the army.

I remain unsure of who is managing it and if there is any organisation.
@OftKilted @cartag was correct i mean an amendment to the template to make the version number of the catalog shown, as almost half if not more of the things that come in are duplicates that have been fixed and this would save time. @amis92 what do you think?

Hey guys, I might remember wrong, but the last time I tried to make a skitarii rooster list, I noticed that the vanguard alpha could now take a stasis Field (go to ground gives 2+ invulb), where is the souce that they can take that? I am pretty sure that option was not available before in battlescribe.
Was there a supplement or white dwarf that gave them a New option?

They don't have that option from Codex: skitarii, only cult mechanicus have that option.

I cant think of any reason for him to be able to take it, if nobody else can i think this was just an over site and should be amended.
Will wait for feedback.

Aight, no problem. I am currently a free user of Battlescribe, so I am not complaining. :)

Could we discuss #1528 again? i would like to remove it if possible :P
True_Hisop

Feb 18 2016 11:59
Also in addition to the template alteration i mentioned above, i would like to code some tracking, for current release version and current development version as well as some other useful information for our reference, i find it difficult to keep up with everything and who is working on what sometimes and i feel something small could help (me at least) if there are no objections?

@hisop I object. It might make our lives easier. And I'm not sure that's allowed.

Actually as per this suggestion for modifying template, it's good but won't work with anon issues - for that we'd have to modify https://github.com/BSData/bsdata repo
@hisop what exactly do you have in mind?
True_Hisop
@hisop
Feb 18 2016 12:37
So for the template simply a version number in addition to the file, for the app an initial version would be just tracking for current release version and date and current development version of all files. i would like also a list of the last three contributions made to a file (aka the people) with dates to see if someone is working on something. potentially a way to separate out if issues are BS bugs (thus unfix-able by us) and when bugs have been unresolved for a long time and perhaps forgotten. maybe a way to flag new releases like SW atm so we can tell when large volumes of bugs are likely to be made for specific codex's and that they can be rolled into releases. these are all just general ideas and feel free to point out flaws or suggestions in my reasoning.

The problem with requiring too much info is barrier to entry for reporting the issue.
True_Hisop

Feb 18 2016 12:40
Well i am only asking for a version number :P
"44" doesnt seem like a massive addition, and we could make it non mandatory
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 18 2016 12:41
If the version number isn't easy to find or automated ...
True_Hisop
@hisop
Feb 18 2016 12:41
Well we could make it automated?
il look into it now.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Feb 18 2016 12:42
I believe the easiest way would be actually for BattleScribe to provide automated bug reports
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 18 2016 12:42
I'd recommend it not being mandatory. More of a "this will help us get your problem fixed
True_Hisop
@hisop

If you want to put me down for Necron issues as the last Necron maintainer has been radio silent for 6 months. I'm good with that
