Is there a FAQ that I missed that gave the Blood Slaughterers of Khorne the "Blood for the Blood God!" Rule when used in a c:KDK army? @cartag

it was in faq/correspondence that all Khorne forge-world stuff can be taken and gains "Blood for the Blood God!"

@hisop ... Okay. Do we have that referenced anywhere? (I couldn't find it in the ticket that updated them)

Hello all, I see that some changes have been made to the Eldar category where they include the Doom of Mymeara stuff. I am trying to get the latest copy of that category but I seem to be doing something wrong. Someone mind helping me out?

What's your question?
What is your current process?
are you trying to get the catalog to edit? Use?
LordPathos

pretty much how do I get the data from the updated category to my battlescribe. Ive gotten the URL from the repository and put it into my manage data section and hit update. But Im not seeing any of the updates. I figured I missed a step.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:22
So, what is the URL you're using from the repository?
Are you using the standard appspot repository?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:23
Okay, and which file are you trying to get? Corsairs? Craftworld?
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:24
Craftworld. Just following someone who was adding the Doom of Mymeara options to it and it looked like he got it all in.

First suggestion would be to clear your current data cache. (i.e. Delete all data and then resync)
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:26
so go to where the data is saved on my PC and delete it?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:27
I know that in the mobile version there is an option to 'delete all data' on the data management page.
(Not at a system with the non-mobile version installed)
Check on the data management page in your desktop version.
If there isn't an option to delete your local data, then clear the local data manually.
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:28
not that i see, so im just gonna delete the data. whats the worse that could happen?!

LordPathos

Mar 24 2016 14:29
everyone knows you just delete strange stuff on your PC. Like that pesky Win32
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:29
(As long as it's just the data file in the data file location, you'll just need to redownload it)
If you had done any data file customization, you would loose any data file customization.
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:30
ok that was it
a lot of stuff was removed with that update too
I still had the 2013 Eldar codex in there
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:30
It was cleaned up overall.
So, old lists may need to be re-created.
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:31
thats fine
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:31
Did that help?
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:31
yeah, i can see the new stuff
super happy
Wraithseers for everyone!
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:31
Glad to help, go forth and have fun!

@OftKilted nope just my memory @cartag will know
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:34
@hisop Maybe that needs to be added as a FB FAQ/Rules question to the ForgeWorld page?
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:42
Im back for another quick question! What if I have noticed something wrong in the points, how do I let the author know?
True_Hisop
@hisop
Mar 24 2016 14:43
Post it here or raise an issue
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:43
Issues work best.
True_Hisop
@hisop
Mar 24 2016 14:43
yup
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 14:44
Validate the issue from your source material as well, prior to submission. That helps bunches! And if you can include your 'catalog version' that is pretty handy as well.
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:46
umm
Youre throwing a bunch of bug words at the nooby. But I will do my best to do so!
big words*
True_Hisop
@hisop
Mar 24 2016 14:50
IF you add the version of the file "adeptus sorroritas (v31)" it helps a bunch. double check its the newest version of the file before submiting.
LordPathos
@LordPathos
Mar 24 2016 14:51
oh I gotcha
turns out there was nothing wrong anyway...I just got over excited and misread what I was looking at.

hey guys, what's our policy on emails-as-FAQs? r.e. https://github.com/BSData/wh40k/issues/1727#issuecomment-200667002
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 17:28
Last I checked it was "no"
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Mar 24 2016 17:28
i hate FW's no-errata policy
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 17:29
give them a question on their FB page?
In truth, you could use the image and then update based on that. But that puts other data files into question. And policies on using emailed updates. :-/
@hisop said that may have been what was used for the C:KDK and Blood Slaughterers of Khorne and the "Blood for the Blood God!" Rule
But that is a @cartag question, I believe.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Mar 24 2016 17:33
any email can be forged. I can put whatever I like in the "from" address and you'd never know.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 17:34
Yep.
Which is why asking that in FBmight be a better source
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Mar 24 2016 17:34
in this case, I figured all of them out (had to) except for Eldar-can-take-the-Firestorm (makes no sense from what I see in the book)
and the Skathach Wraithknight's 18" move instead of 12" + Scatter seems unnecessary. It's a chance to go farther than your 12", and ability to go into reserves.
biggest problem with the Skathach Wraithknight is that it goes into Ongoing Reserves and then never specifies how it comes back from Reserves. Nothing it has gives it the ability to Deep Strike.....
IMHO the thing that's missing from that profile is "Deep Strike", like the Warp Spiders.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 17:38
does it fly?
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Mar 24 2016 17:39
nevermind. Jump gives it Deep Strike
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 24 2016 17:39
And apparently asking on the FW FB site won't get you real answers "they'll just guess"
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Mar 24 2016 17:41
I'm pretty sure they've got a magic 8-ball or something with various 40k rules printed on it.
