what's next?

What's next in the rules pipeline? We've got ancients and ren. coming soon. Napoleonics maybe next year. Are there any plans for other rules sets? ACW, WW2...?

Mike, I've noticed a problem with Print/Print Preview. They only seems to recognise 1 page and ignore anything that doesn't fit onto that. I've tried reducing font size but that doesn't seem to help. This wasn't a problem until I started trying lists from Empires of the Dragon which has a lot of mi...

Found a few things with the latest drop that don't work or are bugs.. If you make changes to the list or create a new list and then click the X to close.. the app shuts down without asking if you want to save your changes. If you want to do a cut and paste and right click on the first column nothin...

the table is too big, the armies too full of cheesy LH crap.

either 650 starters on smaller tables, or maybe i'll just go play another ruleset.

You're just old and tired.

What does this one do that Olivier's doesn't? Just curious. Quite a few things really. Essentially this is an application written specifically for FoG lists whereas the spreadsheet is an application of Excel to FoG list. Writing a custom application provide greater scope and opportunity for develop...

Mike, Here's a problem I've found. If you create a combined unit and then split it, the calculation functions all stop working. This affects both changes to any BGs that have already been created and any new ones that are added. Kevin Thanks Kevin, I'll look at that. Mike Hi Kevin, I've fixed it an...

Which translates to: The application opens a port and listens on it, i.e. in my book it becomes a potential security hazard and something never to be installed on my systems (or any machine I might be responsible for).

I could make the app so that it can send/receive a 'broadcast' message. Bottom line is that if a player has this app you can send a polite 'get your list in...' message.

Hi Mike, thank you for the latest version. Printing works fine but seems slow, I guess that's due to the nature of the app. A few minor points: 1) There is a spelling error for Fortifications (as Fortifciations). 2) Would it be possible to incorporate a small gap between the details and the list? J...

I've added another screenshot showing how to colour-code the deployment groups. This is a manual process - but quite quick to do and there is no reason that it can't be automated if people think it would be useful. See https://sites.google.com/site/armylistbuilder/builder-screen-4-1 At some point I'...

Mike - thanks for doing this. Have you looked at the spreadsheet that most people use? That is the thing you will be compared to. :idea: Yes, I found it awkward to use.

Mike, Thank you for the extra information, the combined unit function works well. Not sure what you mean with select and copy with the pull down function. If you select a row and move the mouse to the bottom right you can drag down and copy in the same way as in Excel. It's great if you want to add...
