Did some minor fixes

Thanks for all the tips pointing to problems. What I fixed:
* Dannon Blight and his buddy showing up in Tallion Charter
* Lesser warbeasts are now payed out of beast points
* Croe's are now in Khador instead of Devildogs
* Typo in epic butchers name

If you found more, please let me know.
(I know the retribution tier granting a free mage hunter solo is not working correctly, but I haven't gotten around to fix it).

Small problems fixed

Ok, I had a little bit of time today, so I fixed:
* "Orboros" is the correct spelling. It is spelled wrong numerous times in the Circle area...
* collection: preatorian with circle, Kaya&laris; 2 models, kromac 2 models
* Some typos in the Troolbloods list: Stone Scribe Chronicler, Runeshapers
* Commodore only with Shae
* Just noticed "Thagrosh" and "Saeryn" are also typoed.
* I noticed a few things not working right. You cannot select Legion in the collection editor, "Lylyth" should be spelled with all "y"s, and their artillery is the "Scather Crew".
* Saxon Orrik should not be legal for Legion lists. He works for almost everyone, but not Legion.
* Just noticed that Orrik is also appearing in Cygnar and Highborn. He works for all factions except Cygnar, Legion, and Retribution. He can only be played in Four Star mercenary contract armies.

Some of the bigger stuff has to wait, sorry. This is stuff like tier problems, lesser warbeasts not from beast points, etc.

I have been busy last week

But sadly not with forward kommander, RL played up and I did some fun stuff. Tomorrow or the day after I hope to fix some of the worst glitches and the week after some of the bigger stuff. When all the list stuff is done I hope to get some work done on the copy-paste function. I am really missing this option, since I am an user of my own application for the first time, when the hordes fieldtest got released.

Just to let you all know.

Hordes Fieldtest online!

Here it is! Enjoy!
If you find any problems, please let me know.

Up for the next release, mostly small fixes:
* only epic magnus with skorne
* A&H; are not two models in the list
* Amps in names and stuff break XML
* Saving and the open load screen
* Sorting of similar stuff and changing does change the sort order
* Vyros, free UA does not count toward FA, but it does, same goes for the UA of kaelyssa
* Commodore only with Shae
* Only one Duel format remains, the smallest one.

New mercs in the builder!

I just added the Basher and Blythe & Bull, I hope I did add them to the right factions. Enjoy!
I also fixed a little problem with the winterguard, thanks to Norbert who noticed.

Loading lists was broken.

With the last upgrade, I broke the loading of lists. Thanks to devon_v who noticed, I fixed it.

Delete option live!

For all of you guys who want to delete your army lists, this feature is now live! I will fix the army list problems later today.

I am a nice gentleman!

The guys of the Iron Agenda podcast ( were cool enough to mention Forward Kommander in their podcast and even to say I am a nice gentleman. It has been my favorite show since episode one, it's a nice combination of in depth tactical advice, model review and a bit of lightweight humor. So if you don't already listen to it, give it a try.

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Also fixed some problems in the armylists

Thanks to all the guys who found them, I hope I have got most of them now. Enjoy! And build them like you've got a pair.

Next up are:
* the delete list option
* the copy to clipboard stuff
* few minor sorting problems in the army tree part

Finally! Tiers are in!

It is still experimental, so use at your own risk. Please let me know if you have any problems.
Now, on to the list problems that are found in last few weeks.

I ain't death!

I there have not been any updates lately and that there still are some (small) mistakes in the army lists. This has three reasons, the first is that implementing tiers is a bitch (thanks PP ;) ), the second is that there is big tourney coming up next weekend where I want to show up fully painted, the third is that I had my wisdom tooth extracted last monday and I had headache for 5 days straight because of that.

The planning as I see it now:
Next week: get epic morghoul, the blood runners and the tormentor painted.
After that: try to get the tiers running smoothly.
Later: fix the army lists, the delete list option and the copy to clipboard option.
Even later: get FK ready for the hordes field test.
Start of december: release FK with the hordes field test in it.

Just letting you guys here something from me!

New print options added!

The army builder now supports four different formats to print in. The "classic" mixed list, a list without grids, only the grids and both the previous options. I also added an option to add some extra text to your print.

This was the option which won the feature poll by the way. Next up are the tiered lists for the retribution. It is really hard to get it working for all browsers on all operating systems, so if you have any problems, please let me know.

New rules, new version (and the poll ended)

Ok, so I had some time to go through the new FA rules posted today by PP and updated the lists!

I also already started to work on the new printing options, which are now partly finished. The grid, seperate page print and layout of the printing dialog still has to be done. I already started, because it was clear this would win the poll, see at the right.

So check it out, and please let me know any problems.

Forward Kommander Future Feature Poll

I have added the poll for the future features of your favorite army builder. It's at the right side of the screen. I will try to at least implement the top 3 of this list before starting a new poll. The poll will be open for one week.
* Theme tiers (1 to 4) support and add them to the Retribution list
* Adding print options: only grids, only list, combined print and seperate list and grid print, additional option to add name and free text field
* Restyle the collection screen to look better
* A copy/paste option for army lists (and maybe collections).
* Option in army builder: "All options", "Options I own", "Options I painted"
* A button randomly generate an army list based on your collection and/or painted miniatures.
* Adding hordes factions to the collection screen
* A signature generator for forums, in which FK will keep updated with your collection and painting progress.
* A counter to show how many points are left

Launched the retribution!

The Retribution of Scyrah is now in the army builder (and collection manager)!
Most of the jack marshalls are not configured, but will be added soon. I will figure those out tomorrow or the day after.
Also the tiers are not in, this change will be something in the poll, which I will put on the page after the release with the jack marshalls is done.
If there are any problems, please leave as comment or email message.

Finally fixed the Devil Dogs point cost

Sorry for keep you waiting guys. I would really like to hear all list and other problems (see email address at the right side). Talking about problems; I found out, that the shinny new right part of the army builder does not work correctly when switching points, so that is something I will be looking at soon. The moving around of UAs also seems to be broken.

On another note, Ios will be coming tomorrow (or the day after).

Looking for suggestions for new features (opening a poll soon).

I will be opening a poll somewhere next week, in which you can vote a feature you would really like in Forward Kommander. I already have some in mind, but if you can think up better features, feel free and put them here as comment or send them to the email address at the right side of the screen.

Here are the things I already have in mind:
* A copy/paste option for army lists (and maybe collections).
* A signature generator for forums, in which FK will keep updated with your collection and painting progress.
* Option in army builder: "All options", "Options I own", "Options I painted"
* A button randomly generate an army list based on your collection and/or painted miniatures.

Improved looks of the right side of the screen

After some work, I finally have finished the looks and functionality upgrade of the right side of the army builder. Please let me know you think about it by commenting or sending an email message to the [email protected] email address.

Did bite off more then I can chew

Hi all,

I am not death, I have just been to France. Work will continue on the army builder shortly, but just before my vacation I started a change to the right part of the army builder to better match the left part. This turned out to be more troublesome then expected and to be honest, I am more focused at the tournament which is coming in two weeks at the moment. After that I hope to get a new release up and running as soon as possible.

Things I want to get done after this update is:
* Add Retribution
* Get a copy and paste out option for lists

After that I my wish list is still open, so all suggestion are welcome. Maybe the option in which you can only build armies with models in your collection or the "random army" option. By the way, besides this brand new blog there is also a shiny new email address to go with it: [email protected] (any problems with the list are welcome!).

So I am not death, FK is not death, it even getting more alive in the future, trying to listen to it's users!
