DZone2 FAQ

Here you can find some FAQs regarding, if you still have questions feel free to drop me an e-mail:

Q: Mantic Games released the v2.1 of the FAQ, when are you planning to update the tool?

A: I'm planning to update the tool in the weekend of July 22 -23 2017. The official FAQ is this one.

Q: Nothing happens when I click on the "generate pdf" button!

A: The first time you click on the button "generate pdf" your browser might ask you to a allow the page to open a new window (depending on the browser this might appear as an icon next to the address bar or a popup), you will not able to generate the pdf unless you allow dzone to open a new window.

A: If you are using the browser Safari (which is usually the default one on the Apple products) the button might not work. Try installing another browser like Chrome and try again. 
At some point in the future I might look into fixing this permanently but It's not on my radar at the moment.

Q: Are you planning to to an Android version of this army builder?

A: Not at the moment but I might try to make the page more mobile friendly sooner or later.

Q: I found a bug, how can I ask you to fix it?

A: Send me an e-mail and please let me know the detailed steps you did to reproduce the problem and if applicable (and helpful) also your browser version and a screenshot of the issue.

Q: I reported a bug, how long will it take to have it fixed?

A: No Idea! This is something that i do in my free time so it really depends on how busy I am at work and If I haven't anything better to do. 

Q: What version of the rules did you use?

A: Dzone has been designed using the 2nd edition of the Deadzone rules (2016), Once the official FAQs will be released by Mantic I'll update the tool.
The tool contains the units from the following books:

  • Deadzone (2016)
  • Nexus Psi expansion (2016)

Q: Why the characters (like Dr.Simmonds) appear only in the Mercs section and not as leaders?

A: Because is allowed to use the characters as leaders only when you use the Elite Army Lists and at the moment the tool does not support the Elite Army Lists. For this reason the various characters are displayed only in the mercs section.

Q: Are you planning to support other game systems?

A: At the moment I'm supporting just Deadzone (2nd edition) and Kings of War 2nd edition and 1st edition. I might support other games in the future.


  1. Did you ever get around to adding the 2.1 rules? Or any chance you'll add the GCPS? ;)

    1. 2.1 have been included already (I forgot to update this page but the stars are there!) for the GCPS I have something almost working but I never had the chance to finish it.
      I'll probably add them once I have some spare time.
