Battlescribe Repository

Many of you may be familiar with Battlescribe. For those who aren't, it is a free app for mobile & desktop which allows you to build army lists for almost any game.
I've been working on some files for Bushido: Risen Sun in my spare time over the last few weeks. Just r
ice costs, theme restrictions, and validation until the edition is published, at which point the mammoth task of adding rules could begin. Should still be useful for warband-building.

It treats the entries as cards. You only add one of each card. If you want two models on a card, you can use the option in the card to add Model B.


I've finally got all factions in, so here's the repository link: https://www.mastercrafted.co.uk/bushidorisensun/index.bsi

I will have made mistakes. The latest PDFs take precendent.
Let me know if I have made a mistake and I will fix it ASAP. Once this edition is released, I will add this repository to the BSData GitHub so it is easier for you to update. Until then, here's 
a little guide on how to add it to the mobile app:

6. Refresh Data. (For now, when you refresh after I've made changes, you'll need to check the 'delete' checkbox)

Wow. Nice! I am eager to try this.

Thank you for your work.

Sir. I tested it for the KKZ for the list I play today.

Only the disguise event card was missing the rest was here, for what I tested.

Also if I may point it, it seems the screen shot for step 3 of the tutorial is different from what I had on my phone, it was the tab "data management" not "select repository". Got me a bit confused for a sec there :p

Disguise is an Enhancement card.
They may have changed the name of the page since I made that guide!

Updated this. Let me know what I've screwed up.

Hi, there's some wrong Descension and Ronin rice cost, here the right cost:

 

Ronin:

- Giant Eagle 14

 

Tribesman:

- Amaruq 11

 

Tengu:

Hakzabo 16

Ruhobo 8

Thanks. Should be fixed now. You'll need to delete your local data when you update the repository.

Keen to give this a go, but doesn't seem to work for me sadly.

I've followed the instructions and tried a few times, but no repository ever appears for Bushido.

Not sure if I'm missing something or not, but have version 2.02.04 for IOS in case that matters.

Thanks for your efforts in any case!

Unfortunately, I can't test on iOS.

I'm trying to decide if it is work me pursuing this further, as Bushido is very hard to write repositories for, and I have very limited time. There are some changes with the latest version which I need to get familiar with which may help.

I think I have found the likely issue :)

If you go to the 6min 30second mark in the tutorial video via the following link it talks about how to get URLs to work for IOS devices:

http://www.battlescribe.net/help-dataindexer.html

I think it would be great to get Bushido working in Battlescribe, and happy to contribute to creating and updating it. The system is designed for community upkeep so sharing the load should be possible.

Maybe having one person assigned to each faction would work so they can have a smaller chunk of responsibility that is fairly segregated and manageable. Each person can then focus on getting the content and rules right for their favourite or most familiar faction.

I'm only just starting to look into Battlescribe data creation so not sure if this is feasible or not exactly. Just an idea.

Quick update.

I manually downloaded the data files from the web site and have tried to get it working via PC but still no good.

The game system file will open in the editor, but all the catalogues seem to be corrupted somehow.

I can view the xml in a text editor, but Battlescribe just doesn't like them for some reason.

Very weird. I've been using it on my Android phone just fine. I#'ll take a look when I can.

100% want to get others to help with the data entry and maintenance, but want to get the structure nailed down first. There are a few different ways to approach the repository structure, so need to find the best way.
I'm considering restructuring to make Themes just a card selection, rather than something you commit to in advance. Should make fiddling with lists more open-ended.

Will be reworking the entire structure of this soon, then recruiting maintenance assistants!

Thanks for all your efforts on this!

I am now able to download and use the new data files :)

Looking forward to watching it evolve, and keen to help if/when I can.

No worries!

It is all hosted on BSData now, so is available in-app. I'm slowly working through the factions updating the structure to be more user-friendly, mostly by making it card-based, so you don't have to commit to a Theme up-front, but there are a bunch of other changes too.

Alpha 4 will be the Savage Wave. Should be done this evening.

v1.0.0-alpha3.0 Spiritual harmony achieved. Temple of Ro-Kan added.

  • Added the Temple of Ro-Kan faction and required Types.
  • Minor fixes.

v1.0.0-alpha2.0 Avast, me hearties! The Jung are here!

  • Added Jung.
  • Fixed Ronin issues and some costs.

v1.0.0-alpha1.0 First Alpha Version: Snakes, Ninjas, and Bears. Oh my!

  • This release consists of the (hopefully) final structure for the repo, though many Types and Traits are yet to be added.
  • Three factions are structurally complete: Ito Clan, Minimoto Clan, and the Kage Kaze Zoku, plus all Ronin cards.
  • No rules have been added as yet - this will be the last task after all cards have been added. Just Rice cost and validation are the priority for now.
  • Note that there is no structure or validation implementation for "Ordered for Battle" or "Strategic Deployment" as yet. These should be possible simply by adding additional Forces in Battlescribe but, as I haven't focussed on this, it is likely to be a little buggy.

There appear to have been some bugs introduced in the last application update. We'll have to wait for the developer to fix them.
