I missed this during beta, sorry about that.

Is there or can there be an option for only summary points rather than detailed points costs? Compare it with how we have implemented a Competition Output.

Also, the Composition Report could use some help. I see you can always omit it though.

Thanks for the note about the composition report, I'll see if I can fix this for the upcoming 3.3a bug fix update.

Regarding summary points - can you explain the advantage behind having a "summary format" that omits points costs? We're open to adding alternate formats to the 3 we already have, but I'm interested in the reasoning behind it.

Thanks!

I think it's partly due to a lot of forums not allowing posting of lists with individual points costs for models and upgrades, but a single unit cost is ok. This helps to keep GW off the backs of the forums for posting too much detail. At present it's a pain to have to manually edit the output file each time to strip the units down to just a single cost per unit.

I'll put this on the to-do list - I hadn't really anticipated the tournament format being used for a "post on forums" way, since it doesn't include a lot of useful roster information, which is why there isn't an option like this so far.

Thanks.
