Procedure question: I found some errata in TRO:3145 Federated Suns that hasn't been reported, but was apparently fixed in TRO:3150.

Should I still report the TRO:3145 FS error?

Good question.  I'd say go ahead, just so those who only have the FedSuns TRO know it.  If you wouldn't mind, note that it's been fixed in 3150.  Thanks.
Away until late August.  Cheers.

Trying to grab the lastest errata files, and they all time out. Server problem?

Hi, long time no see.

Could you be more specific as to which file you're trying to get?  All the core book files I'm able to grab from the main BT website.  Dropbox changed how they link to files, so I had to change all the links I made to them in turn, so perhaps I missed some non-core ones.

Also, I'm releasing new errata tomorrow, so if it's core errata you want, you'll probably want to wait until then anyways.
Away until late August.  Cheers.

I'll be 100% unavailable for the next ten days or so, so if you have any questions on the errata releases, feel free to make them, but I won't be around for a bit to get to them.  However, Moonsword will be watching the store as usual.
Away until late August.  Cheers.

In my opinion there is one very minor editing problem with the new Total Warfare v4.4 errata documents (p. 20 of the errata document for the fourth printing, and p. 39 of the errata document for the first printing).

Both of those documents have two entries for Mechanized Battle Armor (p. 227). One of them details one change to Magnetic Clamps. The other one lists three items that need to be added to the Mechanized Battle Armor section. They should be probably merged into one list of four items, as it is the way such situations are handled pretty much everywhere else in the document.

---------------------

Also, shouldn't the first post in the Tactical Operations errata thread link to the Tactical Operations Landing Modifiers document in addition to the "main" errata documents?

Interstellar Operations PDF pg 219
Additional Alternate Era Equipment Chart
Late Succession Wars Equipment

Prototype Ultra AC 5 is listed as 7 tons and 2 crits making the prototype inner sphere equipment not only better than the full production one (9 tons, 5 crits) but better than the clan ultra AC5 as well (7 tons 3 crits).

That's got to be a typo right?

Are the new "Inner Sphere at War" maps in the download section a product that can be errated?

I'm posting it here, since I don't believe there is a separate thread for BattleForce Quick Start Rules.

BattleForce Quick Start Rules pdf, p. 8 (found in the downloads section on the official BattleTech boardgame site).

Points 2 and 5 of the "Applying Damage" list instruct to go to point 6 under certain conditions, but there is no point 6 on this list to go to.

Judging from p. 230 SO (which contains a full version of the list in question), and contents of the Quick Start rules pdf (no vehicles and no BAR special ability), you should probably either add point 6 saying "The attack is finished.", or simply change both instances of "Go to Step 6." on p. 8 of the pdf to "The attack is finished."

THE ERRATA TEMPLATE

    * VERSION: Field Manual: Capellan Confederation
If the product has multiple printings, note which one you're referring to.
    * LOCATION: p.75 and p.76
    * THE ERROR: Page 75 says the Capellan Defense Force was created just after the 4th SW. Page 76 says it was created in 3060.
    * THE CORRECTION: I believe the CDF was created in 3060. There is no CDF in the 20 Year Update book.

Hi guys.  Just a quick reminder that, as per the errata forum rules, if you don't know if something actually is an error then generally you should post in the rules forums or Ask The Writers/Developers instead of here.  I try to keep the Errata Forum proper for confirmed answers, whereas in the question forums they're actually equipped to help get you an official answer.  I'll be moving a couple of posts to the appropriate rules question forums.  Thanks!
Away until late August.  Cheers.

The final 2017 versions of the Total Warfare and Tactical Operations errata are now available for download at the usual errata thread links.  I will be uploading them to the main website shortly.  Thanks all for the look-overs that caught a few formatting errors.  Substantive changes to the final are as follows:

TW: added new ruling on Hidden Units in buildings.
TacOps: finalized BV values for all Streak LRM launchers.

Each version has the proper 6 June date, rather than 5 June.

I'm still working on finalizing the Alpha Strike errata: just one or two more issues to double-check there.  I'll let you know as soon as it is ready,
Away until late August.  Cheers.

The Origins Pre-release Second Succession Wars, page 94, 3rd paragraph. (See Converting ISW Combat Commands to other systems, p. XX).

That XX should probably be changed to page 122, per the Table of Contents.

(No thread for this product yet.)

Yes, absolutely.  Go ahead and report any such errata in the Interstellar Ops errata thread, but make clear that you're talking about the separate maps (and link to them like you have here).  Thanks.
Away until late August.  Cheers.
