Dec 08 2017 18:06
i assume he's talking about #1989. we've had issues with the OP before
to which amis basically told him 'be nice to us and we'll be nice back, otherwise we'll block you' (my words not his)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 08 2017 18:09
yup
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 08 2017 18:10
i assume he commented on his most recent post, then deleted after you responded?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 08 2017 18:11
no the OP didn't have the second paragraph
I commented and closed, THEN he edited that second paragraph in.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 08 2017 18:12
oh i missed that he edited it
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 08 2017 18:12
he he was trying to stealth-dick it
yeah he*
so the 2 comments after close are me explaining why I said no and closed it.

WONTFIX is the best label
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 08 2017 18:14
indeed
I actually labeled it as such immediately
which since he edited we know he saw those tags.

Dark Angels named characters points changes: Asmodai down 15 to 130 (this is crazy he's so good in land raiders) and Ezekiel down 10 to 135. other named characters didn't change points.

@ilaunchbury - I noticed the Death Guard HQ's (haven't gone through the others) are missing some keywords and Typhus doesn't have a limit of one model in army. I've created issue #1995 listing the problem. Also if you would like me to work on this then I have already created a commit file #1990 which should solve the issue. In the description it lists all the changes I made so if you are currently working on something else then it might be easier to add those options to your version. I created #1990 from Death Guard v24.

New version up - missed an HTML escape on Categories in output, which is fixed. Also "flattened" output is a now a thing.

Dec 08 2017 23:24
yeah, that looks pretty darn sexy
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:24
It just makes sense
It's beautiful

you know, it's so damn obvious, especially given 8th's "force soup"
but for some reason just didn't come to mind!
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:26
Well it's right now, and that's all that matters
And since soup is the name of the game these days, it's great
One other tiny request, which would makes things just peak

Dec 08 2017 23:27
@Jonskichov I linked you the branch that breaks things lol
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:32
Is have Unit Type sorted output for the "mainstream" detachments (Patrol, Battalion, Brigade): HQ, then Troops, then Elites, The FA, then HS, then Flyers -- and then by required slots for the "specialty" detachments, maybe? i.e., for a Vanguard detachment: HQ, Elites, everything else, for Spearhead: HQ, HS, everything else, etc.
It's just the most logical output/ordering that I can think of
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 08 2017 23:33
sounds messy
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:33
Then perhaps I described it incorrectly?
Jon Taylor
@Jonskichov
Dec 08 2017 23:33
So the order of categories is determined by the order they show up in the data file
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 08 2017 23:33
I think it has to do with how the xml is written
Jon Taylor
@Jonskichov
Dec 08 2017 23:34
Which you can't change in the editor, only directly in XML right now...
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:34
Ah
Jon Taylor
@Jonskichov
Dec 08 2017 23:34
...Because I never got round to it....
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:34
Double Ah lol
Jon Taylor
@Jonskichov
Dec 08 2017 23:35
Though hopefully once a that stuff is determined to start with, you shouldn't have to go back and mess with it very often at all. So I don't feel too bad about it :P
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Dec 08 2017 23:35
:+1:
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 08 2017 23:36
so we need someone to manually rewrite the XML to reorder?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 08 2017 23:37
I think what @CrusherJoe was talking about was dynamic ordering based on the Detachment you select
I wasn't sure whether he was suggesting doing that in the unit list in Roster Editor or in the Output
Jon Taylor
@Jonskichov
Dec 08 2017 23:40
well you'd reorder the CategoryLink nodes in ForceEntry nodes. Not too bad really, just some careful copy/pasting.
