Where should we report errors (not bugs) on the BattleTech Tactical App? For example the Timber Wolf Prime has incorrect critical Hit tables. The order is off pretty much everywhere, but both arms are missing the ER Large slots and have added a Hand Actuator.
"Assassinating" the Clan commander's goldfish is hardly the stuff of legend.

I'm not sure, I'm afraid.  I would suggest asking this in Ask the Devs, as they're more likely to be able to point you to useful feedback channels.

Does the latest AGoAC errata apply to the recent PDF copy distributed via Kickstarter?

I have no idea; I wasn't even aware that they did that again for this kickstarter.  The release for the first kickstarter was the 1st printing.  As all printings are now flagged with their version number, you should just be able to open the PDF to page 2 and see right away: the new version says "Corrected Seventh Printing".

Total Warfare C10P errata differs from the updated PDF copy.

Changes to Destroying a Unit on p. 128 were misplaced within the note on Forced Withdrawal rather than the 'Mechs subheading within Total Warfare.

Changes to VTOL Combat Vehicles on p. 196 were misplaced under the main heading instead of the To-Hit Modifiers subheading within the Errata document.

I'll flag the Destroying a Unit change for a future reprint and up a quick silent fix for the TW errata PDF as that one is just a minor mislabelling on my part.

TechManual states that Remote Sensor Dispensers carry 30 sensors a pop, whereas Alpha Strike seems to treat each dispenser as only carrying a single sensor. That's a pretty big discrepancy, should this be corrected?

Total Warfare errata (v10.0) page 5, point 3, involves removing a phrase from TW page 55 indicating that voluntary movement of a WiGE vehicle could potentially cause an unintentional charge. The rules for VTOL movement on TW page 54 (at least in my 9th printing) contain an identical passage to that removed from the WiGE Movement rules. Was this section intentionally left intact, or should it be removed as well?

On the expanded movement costs table page 30 TO:AR:

Should footnote 24 (re bogging down) be added to the Tundra entry?

Footnote 6 refers specifically to Sand terrain but is also on the lines for Clear and Tundra. Presumably there should be either a separate footnote for increased MP cost for wheeled support vehicles without 'off-road' instead, or it should be removed from those lines.

I'll add it to my review notes for any future reprint.  Thanks.

For the new AS:CE 6.0 PRE errata, with the change to Sandblaster SPA using a standard attack, instead of just one of the specials, is there any reason to take Cluster Hitter anymore?  Both cost 2 points, both give a plus one damage, but Cluster Hitter requires standstill and doesn't increase to +2 dmg at short range.

In the new AS:CE 6.0 PRE errata, the addition to Multiple Attack Rolls lists
Quote
The turret attacks must always be the secondary target when mixed with a non-turret attack.
twice at different points in the new paragraph, on both p26 and p44 of the errata doc.

Corrected in the PRE, though it may appear in the new printing of the book as it may be too late to get corrections in there.  Thanks.

Is that change to Sandblaster intended to propagate to AToW? ???

No ASCE changes are intended to spread to other versions of the game at this time.  While CO, ASCE and ATOW all use variants of the same rules in places, each makes changes to those for the purposes of their own unique ecosystem.  It might happen if an ATOW dev decides it's a good idea, but again, no plans at this time.

In the example for special physical attacks, the PNT-9R is listed as having 10"/16"j movement. Was this meant to be a different 'Mech?

Under the new errata for Ballistic-Reinforced Armor, it lists FLK in both the reduces damage and won't reduce damage sections

Quote
Ballistic-reinforced armor reduces the damage from standard weapon attack that have the AC, FLK, IATM, IF, LRM, or SRM special

Quote
Ballistic-reinforced armor will not reduce damage from attacks made using the ART, BOMB, MSL, or FLK specials.

AS:CE

p.35
The Unit Movement Mode Table doesn't include VTOL as an Infantry Movement type.

The vehicle/infantry distinctions are being removed anyway, it's just one list of movement types.

Quote
(bonus query)
p.38
Are VTOL infantry meant to dismount airborne transports as standard ground infantry, like Jump infantry, or as their own thing?
As standard ground infantry, and please do not put questions in the errata threads.  Errata threads are for final text corrections, not for questions or to request errata.  (Rules questions threads or the general forums for those).  "are VTOL infantry.." is not what will go in the book, therefore it's not errata.

I'm confused by "a transport carrying mechanized battle armor may not go airborne or use WiGE, VTOL......movement" being added to page 38

Do that mean that the Karpov (BA) variant can't fly while loaded with BA if it doesn't start the scenario already loaded with BA?

Edit: I think this is specifically about Omni having units correct? It doesn't impact the normal relationship between CAR and IT?
Yeah, mechanized battle armor is significant there.  Mechanized battle armor are those using the MEC special to ride OMNI units.  And only refers to those units while they are actively using the MEC special to ride OMNI units, not just units with MEC, but units using MEC.

(and see above, questions do not go in errata threads.  errata are the instructions to layout about what should actually go in the book.  questions can go in this thread, rules questions forum, or the general forums. thanks.)

Is there any news on when the 6.0 PRE Errata will be pushed to the errata page on bg.battletech?

Last note had it supposed to be posted on the 6th.

6th was the ideal day because I have traditionally released errata on the 6th of June.  However, there were some very, very last minute attempts at additions to the new printing and I won't know if those made it in (and in turn, what pieces should be in the 6.0 final errata doc) until I hear from the intrepid layout fellow.  I can say that if I don't know by the 9th, then the errata won't be made official until the end of the month, as I'm going on vacation on the 10th until the 26th abouts.

However, anything in it at this point is going to be official: it's just a matter of what else is going to be added.

My physical Battle of Tukkayid book I got a couple months ago is the third printing. But the errata page on the battletech website and the errata thread on this forum only mention a second printing. Do they need to be updated, or am I missing something?

I discovered this because a buddy and I were going to build forces for a campaign. I lent him my physical book and I was working off the pdf. We were surprised to find that we had different FP costs and totals to work with.

Relatedly, does anyone know if the catalyst store updates PDFs to the newest version like drivethrurpg does?  I thought it did, but if I go to my download page it still serves me the second printing pdf. Does a third printing pdf exist?

CGL does normally update their PDFs. Odd that your physical copy is a later printing than your digital one.

There was a third printing, yes, though I don't have a PDF copy yet so it might be that one doesn't exist yet.  I'll go pester people to see about having one uploaded.

There were a handful of errata pieces for it.  I'll update the errata doc today I think.
