So, here are my inquisition Razorbacks that no longer exist:
They are magnetized to be chimeras as well, so at least I still have that.

What's that supposed to mean? :P

I'm congratulating your effort, good bug killing, we'll see how long they stay dead...
:-) :+1:
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:02
Well I killed off a third of the SW cat. Let's see how long that stays dead too ;)

Hopefully reducing the size will prevent a lot of the loading issues on iOS at least...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:05
That's the plan :D
I'm just waiting for the release to go through so we can test that and get the 2 last SW issue closed.

Lines i believe.
It was ~70k lines before, down to 48k now.

Sorry to barge in, I was about to spend some time checking on the Eldar Corsairs cat (also saw some inconsistencies in some of the Pale Courts entries) but I seem to recall someone saying it was messed up at the moment and needed rewriting anyway? If so I'll check on it at a later date.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 13:24
@FarseerVeraenthis is the guy to talk to
Feel free to check the AM cats - I just finished those day before yesterday and could use qa
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 13:27
I'd love to, problem is I am an Eldar player. The other problem is, I don't own any codex besides Eldar, Harlequin and Mymeara.
So my ability to help out is quite limited :(
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 13:28
I just need you to check the basic KT reques
So av33, flyer, etc
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 13:28
Ah, on that bike. I can do that :)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 13:30
Kk cool
Just submit bug reps for problems and I'll take care of them eventually

Any tips on reducing catalogue size? For a newbie trying to get to grips with the Heresy files :)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:31
DRY - Dont repeat yourself.
use links and modifiers rather than copying entries
zopha
@zopha
Dec 15 2016 13:33
Cool. Been trying to do that in the slot I'm working with.
Is there a suggested method or good way to choose what goes in the GST?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 15 2016 13:35
@Owlsbane yes, I made some mistakes when doing a previous update so I need to fix them before anyone does any hardcore QA... I wouldn't say it needs a rewrite, just a bit of tidying. Having said that, what are the inconsistencies in the Pale Court Entries?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:35
Anything that's in the main rulebook, or is available to all armies.
so for 40k, thats the two basic detachments, all the USRs, and the weapon profiles from the BRB
Oh and the fortifications too
zopha
@zopha
Dec 15 2016 13:37
Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. Might get large as the Lord of War list is getting longer and can be taken by several armies.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:37
Yeah, 40k has a problem with that too atm *flashbacks to FW knights*
zopha
@zopha
Dec 15 2016 13:38
haha
Since this is nearly all FW...
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 13:39
@FarseerVeraenthis Understood. One that stood out was the use of the Corsair entry for the Wasp Assault Walkers that can be included in a Pale Court when choosing the Fortress of Discipline Forgotten Remnant. Those should be 'regular' Wasp Walkers without the Corsair kinetic shroud.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:39
FW has a bad habit of making things too complicated and/or not wording things well
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 15 2016 13:41
That is one of the things I broke the other day when fixing some of the formations... #3057 raised to cover it :-)
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 13:42
@alphalas Checking the files, what should I do with the No Force Org Slot entries? Just ignore them for now?
@FarseerVeraenthis Figured as much, that's why decided to check in here before putting any more effort in ;)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 13:47
No Force Org is a bit of a grey area in KT. I think most the cats have left them in so people still have the option.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 13:50
Yeah I added specialist to most of the NFOC stuff
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 13:51
Okay, I'll see what I can do with them then.
zopha
@zopha
Dec 15 2016 14:00

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

Any time!
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 14:17
@alphalas Running into some non-KT related issues as well while checking AM cats. Mind if I put it up in one bug report and leave the sorting to you?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 14:18
Sure - if you don't mind making a checklist that'd be stellar
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 14:19
I'm sure I can figure that out :)

@Kohato @tag8833 he's touring now, was in Colorado Springs here in the States. Really awesome show
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Dec 15 2016 14:30
@alphalas Griffon Strike Battery (amongst others) in AM: IA12 is showing a warning about 2 Heavy Bolters on Hull when only 1 is allowed. Selecting only one changes the up/down counter next to it in a bullet option. I think that's because of a work-around to a BS bug that's being ironed out so I should just ignore it, right?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 14:39
I think so, yes
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Dec 15 2016 14:40

Theyre always fun to watch
cartag

This was hilarious, as usual
zopha
@zopha
Dec 15 2016 16:01
Another BS newb question if no one minds. I want to add a linked/shared weapon as a default (and only) weapon to a unit, is this the right way http://imgur.com/BbDOyXm.jpg or is there a better way? Or is just adding a link to the profile the best option?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 16:08
That is one way to do it yes. I prefer to just link the entry then add the min 1/max 1 constraints onto the link.
But either way is fine.
zopha
@zopha
Dec 15 2016 16:14
Great, thanks!

Dec 15 2016 16:34
can we call #2913 closed?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 16:36
You know I think OP has a point on that one – because something like that would actually be important for mission tactics for deathwatch because that turns a very resilient squad into a trip choice instead of an elite's so that would affect your mission tactics.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 15 2016 16:37
Yah
What is the right answer?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 15 2016 16:38
I had an interesting conversation about that at my LGS. Does that battlefield role change to Core/Command/Aux
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 16:38
I don't think so
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 16:38
The battlefield role remains HQ/Troops/FA etc.
and anon in that issue is talking about formations, so why does it matter to the roster if they are Troops or Elites?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 16:39
Deathwatch mission mission tactics would be the one thing I would think of where it would matter
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 15 2016 16:40
^
but they arent labeled as such in BS
when taking formations
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 16:40
Yeah, on the table, but it makes no difference when building the list.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Dec 15 2016 16:40
so its a non issue
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 16:40

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis

Yup, there is a plan to attack the smaller bugs, I need to get home have dinner and sort my Eldar issues then I'm on SM minors to see how many o can squash...

@GenWilhelm
Dec 15 2016 17:23
Ah ok, I did a bunch of optimisation on the SW cat. I'm waiting for the release to be picked up by appspot so I can test stuff on mobile before I close the last 2 issues.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 15 2016 17:23

if you're working on the CAT's I'll leave off releasing for now. SM v2009 is ready to go with a couple of minor bug fixes... I'll have to develop my understanding of the SM codex before I can fix much more...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 15 2016 21:25
I'm not actively
Unless anyone else is, release away
