holy crap, that blood angel, i remmeber that from the first time i went to warhammer world when i was knee high to a grasshopper, there was a blood angel and a khorne beserker (i think), they also had a lifesize section of a space hulk with lights that flashed genestealer faces into the darkness, scared the crap outta me, was awsome =)

Life tip, if you're building a fence and hauling fencing panels up hills all day, wear a damned back brace.
I'm ded. And glad I have an office job with a semi-comfortable chair

Harly FAQ
wat dis?
Gitter previews PDFs now?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 13:14
uh, yeah, apparently
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 11 2018 13:14
I like how they just "Yes/No" end-of-story did that.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 13:16
yeah, typically that's for when the RAW is clear, but people have trouble understanding it completely
or to clarify that the rules work the way they were intended to

Likewise, if a weapon has an ability that scores additional hits on a roll that exactly matches the result of a Riddle-smiths roll, it would score those additional hits, but they’d all miss.

this one is fun

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 13:18
haha
"I mean yes ... technically they'd be more hits ... "
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 14:06
you might say the FAQ wording on that answer is hit or miss? :P
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 14:08
lol. more like hit and miss
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:36
anyone been keeping track of E3?
Skyrim got a new edition :D
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 14:37
oh. i think i saw something about that, but i assumed it was satire....
looking forward to squenix tonight, though
Earl Bishop

Oh it's real
oh so real

@Kohato I’ll provide a walkthrough to that bugrep
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:43
for whatnow?
The freeblades?
Already fixed fam
I mean, they're still locked to Imperial houses, because they have to be - but qualities/burdens was just a wrong constraint - it's fixed. Should be up on appspot already too
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 14:45
im assuming the one that just got a new comment
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 14:46
Yup
I’m giving him a pictorial guide to how it works
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:55
Ohh provide to williamcaw
I gotcha
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 14:56
Yup
Since he didn’t get it the first time and opened a new bugrep
I even did it on my iPhone to show him it works
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:57
This one makes it sound like he's trying to make a FW Knight a mechanicus
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 15:02
@Kohato no it’s literally he doesn’t understand you have to hit the checkmark and then click on the name not the radio button to get the house selections
It’s 100% operator error; I’m trying to help him understand that
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 15:04
He also doesn't realize he can comment a closed ticket?
And @amis92 drops the hammer.
Danke.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 15:14
Maybe I'll take another look and see if I can improve the UX without maiming the validation. Might be able to bump the houses one level up and hide the invalid choices
save one level of clicking
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 11 2018 15:16
Yeah, it could probably use some better UX. Maybe renaming groups, if you can come up with something more helpful...?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 15:17
Group names shouldn't be an issue
If anything I'll scrap the allegience choice and add 4 more conditionals to the relics/fw knights
rather than the 1 allegience conditional
but that'll be a last choice thing
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 15:19
Ugh I can’t upload a screen recording to git
It’s not in a supported format

You @acebaur Happy Birthday my man!!!!!
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Jun 11 2018 15:32
Thank you sir!
@amis92 @alphalas - either of you mind taking a look
On mobile I mean
if you have dropbox set up - I do but I can't get to dropbox here at work
See if that UX is any easier on mobile. It should be, and I was able to keep validatiion just fine
image.png
image.png
All 1 level now - hides things as necessary
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 16:12
Unless you all think it worked better before and just needed instructions in the group names
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 11 2018 20:19
Cool, except I think there's a type in Allegience - should be Allegiance?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 20:24
Hey, I never claimed I could spell
As long as it's functional on mobile i'll push that
Just gotta get to dropbox access to test it
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:27
So my ik data cards came today. Just noticed that the final objective for every set is priority order 66
I find that amusing

Anyone using iOS Battlescribe Version 2.01.18 and getting an error when attempting to do a roster view and selecting “Markdown List”?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:47
good god, it is not easy to manually upload a datafile in dropbox anymore on ios
YEs @OftKilted
The latest version doesn't have the template file for a markdown list it seems
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 21:48
@Kohato Yep ... the instructions on the BS site doesn’t work anymore for Dropbox issues ..
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:48
Jon probably didn't get in in his last compile
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 21:48
Okay, I’ll finish my bug report and submit it
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:49
Anyone here have an android ios device handy?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 21:49
BattleScribe/Release#16
I’ve opened that for the IOS side
@kohato I have an iOS device handy?
Did you need something checked?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:54
unless you have jailbroken and can place cat files
since dropbox uploading is borked, I can't test something on ios
I realize I now said android ios - I meant droid
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 21:55
I can place bsr files? That’s how I usually do my Dropbox versions
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:57
Just want to see if knight household selection is any better with that version
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:00
Well that’s an easy radio button
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:01
And it came up automatically
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:01
getting closer to a full watch fortress
not depicted: two stormeagles, 1 more landraider, 1 more razor, levi dread, contemptor mortis, plastic contemptor, 5 sternguard, ~30 mk IV, and 5 cataphractii, 5 intercessors, 5 hellblasters
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:02
@Kohato it listed it on open, selected, selected radio option, radio button list for household
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:02
Seem easy enough to actually use?
rather than layers like it is now?
That's a lot of non white watchers.
OftKilted

Let me wipe the data and pull the current master
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:04
trying to head off issues like these #3243 and #3235
by making UX a bit easier
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:08
In v11 can you only take Cadmus and Mechanicus?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:08
Ok, it's definately better then.
No, you have to dive one level deeper
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:09
Well... I can’t figure out how to get one level deeper...
Oh there we go
That was painful
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:09
you go back one level, and tap on the entry rather than the radio button for mechanicus/imperialis
That's fine - that answers my question with a yes
new way is easier to understand
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:09
It’s radio buttons all the way down
Much better
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:09
Yea, it wasn't pretty - was needed for validation, or so I thought
I fixed it to what the bsr was :)
i'll merge then, just didn't want to until I got some input and I couldn't get a mobile version to work on my end
danke
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:15
@/all Anyone want to get some bugfixes in before a release later tonight?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:16
I'm still trying to figure out how to fix gortesques without the UX being terribly funky
and I'm not convinced the razorwing bugrep is right, so not me
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:17
@Kohato no worries
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:18
bugrep for razorwing is correct
Up to 3 flocks = 1-3
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:18
razorwings have two matched play boxouts I need to check
well, beasts in general
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:18
so 1-3 is 2pl, 4-6 is 4, or 7-9 is 7
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:18
so will get to checking those once I'm done grotesques
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:18
It seems you pay a PL premium for a max unit
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:19
likely because of beastmaster buffs
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:20
Grotesques should be easy-ish I'd think?
Collective Monstrous Cleaver or Collective Liquifier
with an optional model that has a dropdown for the weapons of tourture
think Space Marine special weapon boys
If i'm understanding that bugrep right
which having not touched Drew Carry, fuck if I know

I'll be back later gonith then - if you need help with it let me know.

the scary thing?
I just checked, and that pic/list I posted is 9800 pts
with just enough transport capacity to cram every PA and terminator body into transports
