So, just finished GOW
Safe to say it is at the top of my list of story based games for the past two years.
Horizon is probably the last one that comes close.

as much as I want to, I cannot suffer through SS82 anymore for codex bits
I'd rather wait for the epub

I'm debating on the best ways to make my current primaris deathwtch looking while waiting for the codex....

@Kohato I'm about to enter the last realm too. I just need to find the last winged being in Niflheim... and casually grind out that place before finishing the story.
Guess which 2 games are the only ones I own for the ps4? :P

I really wish there was a requirement for email on bugreps from the app :/
How do you teach people if they don't see shit

#3028 I may change sometime though, just set it (and the other two fixed trait characters) to a default selection.
But as is, it's correct.

@Kohato it’ll probably save you 15 bugreps
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 08 2018 12:37
Over the life of the cat :p
That's the first bugrep for it i've seen.

would we have to worry about gdpr if we were asking for e-mails?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 08 2018 12:37
gdpr?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 12:38
new EU regulations about storing personal data
CloverFox
@CloverFox
May 08 2018 12:38
thats the one, stands for general data protection regulations
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 08 2018 12:39
I mean we wouldn't. Jon probably would though.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 12:40
it would be down to whoever runs @BSDataAnon, which is probably Jon/Amis
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

@WindstormSCR did you manage to get a full list or revised points?? and if so, and they're included in the updated CAT on your branch - how do I "use" the file from the branch without causing major distress to... everyone...??
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:19
how do you usually get files from the repo?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:22
hmmm... right, so, when I first started I think I cloned it to my computer and branched the Repo
then I pointed BS to use those files for its data
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:22
cloned using the github app?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:23
so when I update directly from the repo I always have the most recent files on my PC
yes, all using the github app as per the Wiki
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:24
okay, so there should be a menu somewhere in the github app to switch which branch you're on
i know where it is in the "new" one, but i cant remember where it is on the old UI
just use the "current branch" selector
then fetch and it will pull the needed files
@FarseerVeraenthis
and its not a "full" points
just what I got from MWG and other places
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:27
righto
I'll give that a whirl and see what happens...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:27
SS82 is ususally the best for the full spread, but I can't sit through that for a 4th time
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:27
will it replace my existing data,??
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:27
custodes and DE were hard enough
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:28
if not, where will the "new" CAT files go??
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:28
yeah, but it saves the diffs so the only thing you'll lose are uncommitted changes
basically commit your shit before branch hopping
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:28
and does that mean I need to make an adjustment in BS to look in a new location?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:28
nope, it'll drop them in the same location
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:28
no, it changes the files in the clone location
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:28
aha!!
righto, that makes thing (slightly) easier
I'll give that a whirl tonight and see how I get on
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:29
@FarseerVeraenthis so if you want fully accurate points you'll have to sit through the SS82 review and take notes :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 15:29
(link??)
(feeling lazy.. and at work still)
so if you want to take changenotes, then pastebin them to me or something
I'll shove them in
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 08 2018 15:35
If you're on desktop Simon
Just download the repo
and unzip to your data folder.
Simple as that
Well, that's for master.
Swap to the right branch, then you can
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:37
except the github app makes that whole process entirely painless :P
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:39
@FarseerVeraenthis also check base costs, not sure if deathwatch primaris are 100% correct or not
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:40
@WindstormSCR you need to escape your angle brackets in github, otherwise their contents disappear due to markdown
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:40
I saw
added spaces which did the job I think
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 08 2018 15:41
ah, yeah. i just needed to refresh :D
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 15:42
the sad fact is that the guy is asking for How I would play it (and how I let my local chaos dudes roll) but its not correct strictly speaking
the four local chaos players are all really fun guys and each do different gods, so narrative stuff with them is pretty damn cool
last time we did a narrative event the tzeentch and khorne players started slinging insults halfway through the match then turned on eachother
leaving the iron warriors player stuck trying to deal with the objectives lol
funny thing is they still won
Earl Bishop

@WindstormSCR #3030
That's ... a tricky one.
Using Corruption as an example, it requires a Nurgle Daemon Character. DP of Nurgle in the DG codex has those requirements - so would be eligible.
DP in C:CSM with a mark of nurgle also has them ... but as faction keywords rather than regular keywords.
Technically ... still keywords.
I know it's moot now without cat inheritance ... but since that is coming ...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 19:45
I see what you mean about the pace of the SS82 review...
its a bit slow...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 19:56
lol
now you see why I couldn't do it again after sitting through DE, Craftworlds and Custodes
@Mad-Spy what's your take on #3030
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 20:02
its almosat like is the very first time he's reading the book
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 20:03
that's part of what I hate
like, dude, run through it 5 or 6 times, check changes to the index, make it concise
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 20:03
and almost like, yreah, like he has no idea of the differences between the code and the index
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 20:04
maybe that's why GW doesn't care, the guy is derp
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 20:04
heheheh!
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 20:17
oohh.... apparently the xenophase is on the standard equipment list - which means anyone can take it - not sergants only
frag cannon is down to 25 points
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 20:23
sorry, talking rubbish, xenophase is still Sgt only
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 20:31
wait
awww
and here I was gonna make my harlequin playing firend shit a brick
"hey, nice 4++ too bad you reroll it"
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 20:32
ehehhehe
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 21:03
can I commit to this branch directly??
or would you rather I messaged you any changes??
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 21:12
can you message me the list?
I was tinkering with a unit structure change for vanguards
because from the leaks I have a feeling the 1-5 was an error...... again
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 21:13
hehehehe
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 21:13
so I'm working on a "1-5 or 5-10" switch
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 21:13
yeah, and actually it looks like the only change is that Corvus dropped by 10 points
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 08 2018 21:13
so that whichever interpretation people like, they can use
until FAQ'd
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 21:14
he's not covered the increased cost of boltguns "they're all the same as the space Marines Codex"
but yes, Corvus is 150 base
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 08 2018 21:33
@WindstormSCR, re #3030. My understanding of it is that GW are fucking idiots for having a Faction keyword which is identical to a normal keyword.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 08 2018 22:13
@WindstormSCR looks like the only difference I have is the Covrus is 10 points cheaper, everything else stacks up and I kinda wish I hadn't spent all evening wtaching that review...
kudos for going through it several times already
(I did get a little painting done though, so, not all bad)
