  1. Hey there, I've probably goofed astronomically as I'm no programmer but I haven't been able to find a solution via the search tool here in the forum so apologies if this has been answered earlier. Myself and two friends completed a lot of content back when you first released the CharGen, and I can't seem to get it to populate anymore. I'm pretty sure I remember the data files were converted post 1.1.0.10 so they should be compatible with 1.5, but most likely my mistake is simple. I copy pasted the DataCustom folder from our Dropbox to the Data Folder found in the launcher. When I start the data editor, I can see the custom work we've done on each of the skills, classes, talents, etc., but when I open the character generator, none of that data appears. It seems to default to the "please refer to page xx in such and such core book" for every entry. I've got all of those entries backed up so I'm not concerned aboht losing the effort put into creating them, but I'm remiss to understand why I can't actually see them in the generator. Again, apologies if this has been answered before, the thread is easily the longest I've ever seen and the search function returns a lot of irrelevant posts.
  2. I think an upgrade kit would be a terrific idea! My copy's barely a year old and in terrific condition but clear plastic clues aren't bright.
  3. Maybe all the tubes and whatnot in the heads/faces/bodies of Chaos Space Marines serve no function whatsoever. Maybe they're just cosmetic traditions. Like tattoos to Maori or neck rings to Kayan Lahwi.
  4. I think, for the first time, we can draw a direct line of lineage from today to the universe of 40K! From the description section for Black Crusade we have: I swear to make war on the Imperium and its people, and I will go to my grave tearing down the walls of that benighted, decadent, and foolish empire. It is not I, in the end, who have betrayed the Imperium; it is the Imperium who has betrayed me. It is the Imperium who has betrayed us all. – Commander Phineas Gage, Master of the Voidborn Deserters He would appear to be a direct decendant of THIS Phineas Gage !!! Mayhap that rail spike to the head started the chain of events that led to the fall of man?!
  5. Yea, a deal on bulk orders would be terrific. I've got all of arkham, and that's gonna set me way back, plus BSG... Yea? No? bulk deal? Customer appreciation day?

It was only after we lost on account of Zero fuel did I need to reveal myself Wow...it sounds like your friends are terrible at this game. Yea it was one of those unfortunate situations for the humans where the two actual experienced players wound up cylons. We've played since and it's been MUCH closer. It was one of those games where everything went right for the cylons and the humans were inexperienced or silly.

  8. See, I like the idea of playing as a cylon and being super helpful before the sympathizer phase so you get a teammate. Plus it does help keep them from looking suspicious. Such a great design choice.
  9. So way back in 1970, Dean Stockwell was in "The Dunwich Horror". In 2004 Dean Stockwell joined the cast of Battlestar Galactica. In 2009 Dean Stockwell is participating in a remake of the 1970 horror classic "The Dunwich Horror." This is clearly being orchestrated by Fantasy Flight Games to promote both properties so they can sell more boardgames. Well played, FFG. Well played.
  10. Ahhh, perfectly explained. Thanks! I found the wording obtuse, but that made it clear.
  11. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it, but every time I read rules related to the sympathizer I get confused, although I think I got it now and would like your confirmation... or stern talking-to. The sympathizer, if at least one resource is below half, is thrown in the brig, but otherwise will not change loyalty from human to cylon (unless he's already an unrevealed cylon). Once out of the brig they continue to play on the human side. In a 4-player game, for example, the game would thus remain 3 vs 1 humans to cylon. If all resources are above half then the sympathizer does become a revealed cylon (with the limitations as stated in the rules), thus making the game 2v2. The part that was getting me confused was why would we throw a sympathizer in the brig, and then why would the sympathizer then continue playing for the side it is NOT sympathizing with? And how exactly are cylon sympathizers handled? The rules state that the cylon MAY give the sympathizer card to someone else, not MUST. If that's the case then wouldn't the Cylon become "human"? Gah! What purpose would keeping the sympathizer card serve the cylons? Am I reading too much into this? Is the purpose of the sympathizer card just to potentially add another cylon to the game if the humans are doing "too well?" Thanks guys, I'm usually pretty spot on about rules, but for whatever reason the wording of the sympathizer rules turns my head around.
  12. Hey all, so in the Arkham forum, people are posting their locations, and I thought it would be a nice idea to do so here as well. Finding players for BSG in my neighborhood would be great. Send me a friend request, there's a local game shop with plenty of space for multiple games! I'm in Santa Monica, CA!
  13. Santa Monica, CA There's a great game shop around the corner, too, with plenty of space for several board games at once.
  14. I don't have the rulebook in front of me, but it's available here. There's a blurb at the back about components and "running out." I don't remember the exact page off hand, but I think it will answer your question better than I'm about to. According to my understanding, ship and token placement is left up to the amount in the pot, as well as to player choice. If you run out of basestars, for example, the current player gets to choose what ships and components get placed. In this regard, it seems like you would just use whatever raiders and vipers are left in the pot to fill out the crisis card as much as possible, and whatever you're out of you ignore. In another example, if the crisis card calls for you to place two basestars but you only have one, then the current player chooses where the last remaining basestar would get placed on the board and ignore the other. I guess the thought is, if there were enough components to place everything, the board would look like a pile of raiders and basestars and things are tough enough for the humies already Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong?
  15. Hehe too bad we couldn't make a multi-option poll to show the actual statistics of human to cylon win/loss. Seems almost universal that humans don't have it so easy. Humans 1 Cylons 4
