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?

@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 13:14 UTC
uh, yeah, apparently
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 11 2018 13:14 UTC
I like how they just "Yes/No" end-of-story did that.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 13:16 UTC
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 UTC
haha
"I mean yes ... technically they'd be more hits ... "
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 14:06 UTC
you might say the FAQ wording on that answer is hit or miss? :P
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 14:08 UTC
lol. more like hit and miss
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:36 UTC
anyone been keeping track of E3?
Skyrim got a new edition :D
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jun 11 2018 14:37 UTC
oh. i think i saw something about that, but i assumed it was satire....
looking forward to squenix tonight, though
Earl Bishop

Jun 11 2018 14:41 UTC
Oh it's real
oh so real

@Kohato I’ll provide a walkthrough to that bugrep
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:43 UTC
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 UTC
im assuming the one that just got a new comment
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 14:46 UTC
Yup
I’m giving him a pictorial guide to how it works
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 14:55 UTC
Ohh provide to williamcaw
I gotcha
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 14:56 UTC
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 UTC
This one makes it sound like he's trying to make a FW Knight a mechanicus
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 11 2018 15:02 UTC
@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 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
Unless you all think it worked better before and just needed instructions in the group names
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 11 2018 20:19 UTC
Cool, except I think there's a type in Allegience - should be Allegiance?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 20:24 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
@Kohato Yep ... the instructions on the BS site doesn’t work anymore for Dropbox issues ..
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:48 UTC
Jon probably didn't get in in his last compile
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 21:48 UTC
Okay, I’ll finish my bug report and submit it
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:49 UTC
Anyone here have an android ios device handy?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 21:49 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
I can place bsr files? That’s how I usually do my Dropbox versions
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 21:57 UTC
Just want to see if knight household selection is any better with that version
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:00 UTC
Well that’s an easy radio button
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:01 UTC
And it came up automatically
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:01 UTC
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 UTC
@Kohato it listed it on open, selected, selected radio option, radio button list for household
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:02 UTC
Seem easy enough to actually use?
rather than layers like it is now?
That's a lot of non white watchers.
OftKilted
@OftKilted

Let me wipe the data and pull the current master
Earl Bishop

trying to head off issues like these #3243 and #3235
by making UX a bit easier
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:08 UTC
In v11 can you only take Cadmus and Mechanicus?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:08 UTC
Ok, it's definately better then.
No, you have to dive one level deeper
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Jun 11 2018 22:09 UTC
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 UTC
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 UTC
It’s radio buttons all the way down
Much better
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:09 UTC
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 UTC
@/all Anyone want to get some bugfixes in before a release later tonight?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:16 UTC
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 UTC
@Kohato no worries
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:18 UTC
bugrep for razorwing is correct
Up to 3 flocks = 1-3
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:18 UTC
razorwings have two matched play boxouts I need to check
well, beasts in general
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:18 UTC
so 1-3 is 2pl, 4-6 is 4, or 7-9 is 7
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:18 UTC
so will get to checking those once I'm done grotesques
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:18 UTC
It seems you pay a PL premium for a max unit
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 11 2018 22:19 UTC
likely because of beastmaster buffs
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 11 2018 22:20 UTC
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
