Website Design Updated

As I'm sure you're aware, the design of the BattleScribe website has looked kinda... scuzzy (circa 1995) for some time. I'm no designer, and just needed to get something up to host the downloads. Well I finally got sick enough of it that I went ahead and built something a lot nicer.

It's pretty much the same content (for now at least), but hopefully it's a lot easier on the eye and a bit more modern.

Enjoy :)

BattleScribe Mobile Pro Released!

So today, the pro version of BattleScribe Mobile is out. This is an ad free version of the normal Android app, which also has a little something extra: a neat dice rolling and statistics app. It tells you the average results of a series of dice throws, and allows you to try rolling for yourself to see your own results. It will handle dice from a D2 up to a D100, multiple dice per roll (eg 3D6, 5D10), and you can also factor modifiers, multipliers and re-rolls into this.

As a thank you to all those who've downloaded the free version and have been with BattleScribe over the last 18 months or so of it's life, BattleScribe Mobile Pro will cost a single pound for the first week. After that, it will probably be around the three pound mark.

Let me know what you think in the comments, and the link to the Android Market is on the right, along with the rest of them. Enjoy :)

BattleScribe 1.12.03b Released, BattleScribe Mobile Pro Sneak Peek

BattleScribe 1.12.02b and 1.12.03b released in quick succession to sort out a couple of minor niggles. Sometimes the roster points total wouldn't update correctly when using the +/- spinners. Also, the points wouldn't update if you duplicated a selection. These should be sorted out now.

In other news, I'm almost ready to release the Pro version of BattleScribe Mobile for Android phones. This has the advertising removed, and also includes a little something extra: a statistics calculator/roller, geared towards wargamers. We're all stats-nerds at heart and it's nice to be able to compare the average damage output or other characteristics of a unit when making your lists. You can view the average results of a particular series of rolls (e.g. hit, wound, save), and have a go at rolling them yourself to see if you can beat the average.

Mathammer is fun :)

BattleScribe 1.12.01b Released!

This is mainly a bug fix release as a few bits and pieces were raised in the forum - my thanks to vaslav and scarletsquig for finding them. There are also a couple of small new features thrown in there.

Release Notes:
  • Your chosen roster layout options in the view roster dialog are now remembered
  • Catalogue and Game System editors will now prompt you to update the revision number of files you edit
  • Fixed a bug where data files made with 1.12.00b would not open on older versions or on the mobile version.
  • Fixed bugs where modified rules/profiles would not be properly renamed and listed in the view roster dialog
  • Fixed bug where selections from entries with modified points values would not be displayed properly in the view roster dialog
  • Fixed bug where if you selected an entry for your army with modified points values, the available entries list would reflect the modified version, not the original
  • Fixed bug where the hidden flag on rules/profiles was not being respected
  • Fixed a bug where "No Category" selections would sometimes not be displayed in Roster Editor
Additional Fixes for Android:
  • Ads no longer get in the way of your list of selections
