So in the case of unclear bug report what do you guys do?
"It says I'm required to have fangs of the tempest and the cureborn as auxiliary choses"
This was for Space Wolves
I think they may be talking about the Wolf Claw Strike Force

@alphalas I'm probably just slow in the head but the dropbox links I found are to specific documents, Planetstrike and Cities of Death

Ask them to clarify. Even anon gets emails from replies
If they put an email in

@alphalas are you a he or a she? Or rather, how would you prefer to be referred to here...?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 08:40
this sounds either like the start of a fallout game or a Tumblr post... "my pronouns are..." :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 16 2016 08:46
Hehehe! I just mean, if I were a lady and people kept referring to me as "he" I might get a little miffed... Personally, I'm a guy so you can call me he and all is well, but that's not the case for everyone...

You would tell the current group of people that you're a 'she' and they'd accept and call you that. And then a new member joins the group... :)

Doesn't really work online unless you put your name out where everyone can see it. And it has to be a non-ambiguous name, otherwise there is a chance that someone could use the wrong word again.

True, but since I'm new here I thought I'd just check :smile:

sad thing is that in this hobby which is a niche which has very few females... you are now asking for the niche few who do geeky work for free for a nerdy hobby if they are female
I hate to tell ya, but the chances are very, very, VERY slim :D
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 16 2016 09:40
Well, worth a shot... It's the "Las" in alpha-las and the female picture that got me thinking... Oh well, maybe they'll pop up and put us all in our place by actually being an intergalactic asexual alien...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 09:46
might be... more likely than an actual female :D

anyone got a tip? I've run into a problem I'm kinda stuck with. I have a shared entry group with relics. Now some relics are forbidden for some characters... how to hide them then? I run in the problem that none of the modifiers basically go "parent's parent"... The parent of the relic entry is the entry group. But I need the parent of the entry group... It's neither parent nor ancestor since that one goes all to the top I think. Force, Roster and category don't fit that either (though in theory I can check for the category since a Datasmith is not an HQ... hm... no does not work either). Dangit. I don't want to add yet another entry group to the bloat...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 09:54
can you not check if an ancestor is an instance of that character?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 09:56
that was my first attempt, but for some reason doesn't work
wait a second... the ID's...
fucking bloat!
There were 2 entries of the character with the same name because the shared entry force instance of bug -.-
I checked for the wrong entry
I feel stupid for falling in that trap and smart for noticing it at the same time :P
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 09:58
its all good, just blame it on Jon :X
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 09:59
well he's partially guilty after all ;=
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:00
its an annoying bug, for sure
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:01
which may or may not be easy to fix. Depends on how sharing actually is implemented... but yeah, I hate it with a passion. Almost as much as not being able to set a default in a shared entry group via modifier.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:02
oh it would be amazing to change default selections via modifier
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:02
yeah... lemme check something quick
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:05
maybe there was too much work involved in getting it to function properly
and tbf it is just a qol thing for us data authors
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:07
possibly. Maybe 2.0 helped with that... yes, but you can basically call the entire shared entry thing a qol ;) you could just c&p the stuff all over
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:08
the stuff of nightmares... but yeah i get where youre coming from
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:09
id still rather have the instance of force fixed. That's negatively affecting user experience now.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:10
yeah, the only thing worse than a missing feature is a broken one ;)
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:11
haha so true :P I can totally live with telling support "we never had that, we'll do that sometime" instead of "well that's broken. Gotta fix it now!"

Anyone have a problem adding a third Force to the roster for Space Wolves? Or even just trying to create a roster with Formations and the Company of the Great Wolf. I just click on OK, BS2 blocks and then releases as though I've pressed nothing... Luckily I still have BS1 with unupdated files at home...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:14
this on desktop or mobile?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:14
I think there was a bug in BS with more than 2 detachments... but that one is fixed afaik.
I'll try the Formation/Company

Desktop
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:15
yeah, rosters with lots of forces just take a while to load
its gets worse if you use different cats
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:15
seems to work for me
Ivan Milanov
@SuperPranx
Nov 16 2016 10:16
hmm... maybe I need to update...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 16 2016 10:16
I'm on the alpha channel
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 16 2016 10:18
yeah, formation + company of the wolf took about 30 seconds for me to load
probably because im on old hardware
