Hey guys, can anyone recommend an XML editor with a feature for finding duplicate IDs?

doesn't the Battlescribe data editor do that already??
if so, I would suggest using that, since you can generate a new ID at the same time and then hopefully all the link will sort themselves out "automagially" as well...

Must have selected the wrong CAT...
Cult mechanicus is one below CSM... Perhaps he meant in the chaos marine cat instead...

Cheeky 😝 missed I assume... I imagine he forgot to deselect a weapon or something? Either that or the modifier is broken... Perhaps he didn't choose a chapter trait?

Mar 06 2017 14:06

and theyre come the apoc with daemons, so theyre not that far gone

How are they desparate with tau
but convenience with orks.
Tau is a much better ally
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 06 2017 14:09
isnt that how chaos interact with those factions?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 06 2017 14:09
Oh that could be
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 06 2017 14:09
orks can be bought, but tau wont be swayed
convenience with DE is interesting though, usually they wont work with anyone but other eldar

Mar 06 2017 14:16
Yea, I'm surprised it was Aeldari
and not just Ynnari
fluff wise, they've only worked with Ynnari

the new fallen look more like deathwatch than dark angels to me
maybe because theyre all "veterans"

i wonder is GW are going to do an imperial agents on us and say anyone who has the original dataslate can still use old cypher/fallen
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 06 2017 14:26
100% yes.
Precedent before IA. They did the same with Curse of the Wulfen.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 06 2017 14:27
was only for the iron priest though, right?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 06 2017 14:28
Age of Sigmar updates their dataslates and disallows old ones that have been updated. 40k does not. All printed dataslates for the current edition are valid.
That was the only one that was updated.
but yea
So unless they go 180 on us and say no to old cypher ... I'd bet on yes - old cypher is valid.

I'm going to guess "Concussion" on the Sword of the Emperor is "Concussive instead
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 06 2017 14:59
yeah, that's what I assumed
oh hey BS 2.00.14 has fixed some of the constraint bugs
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

zopha
@zopha
Mar 06 2017 15:07

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 06 2017 15:10

A modifer to Set Name to or Appended name with never worked for me.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 06 2017 15:13
?
That's always worked.
... since before 2.0 lol
Source: Me - I use it heavily to save lines with Chapter Tactics

@zopha
Mar 06 2017 15:14
I'll give it another go, the three times I tried to use a modifer like that, it didn't work for me.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 06 2017 15:14
Actually - i've never used it on shared entries, just shared profiles and rules.
but it works on those 2 at least
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

Another successful QA! Good work everyone.
on a side not i have no idea whats going on with constraints atm
changing unrelated modifiers fixes them? but only sometimes

Luckily the new Decurion is Ultramrines
So that will be stupid simple to put in :)

Creed and Guilliman?
I really don't want to think about a 60 year old man and a 10,000 year old man mating.
