Companion application for Batman

Recommended Posts

Some of you may know @pig's Companion App for Conan.

Late last year, I double dared him to do a companion for Batman, which he did.


This is where the fun is: https://the-overlord.com/Companion/


Those are the first features  :

  • Boards:
    Updated dynamic lines of sight
    Specific rules of every board
  • Rules :
    Game aids on skills with adjusted texts mixing the original french and english texts and the details at the end of the rules booklet
    Rulebook with a search engine
  • Misc:
    Customize the extensions you own in order to display only interresting content
    List of credits and thanks to their respective authors
    Access to the github to declare a bug or a "simple" improvement idea




And more to come!
To be continued, same bat-time, same bat-channel...

After a year and a half of not hard work at all... a new version of the "Batman Companion" is available (0.24)


The news :

  • It is now possible to install the companion as a real application that can work offline.
       Installation is done from the Companion website, in the menu.
       Installation is possible on phone, tablet of course but also on computer (unless you visit the site with Firefox).
       Attention! Those who have already installed a previous version of the companion on their phone/tablet home page must remove this shortcut to be able to do a real installation.

The improvements :

  • Faster loading by reducing image size via webp
  • Faster loading of game rules by embedding images

The corrections :

  • Header that disappears from the phone when scrolling
  • Improved html5 compatibility

Thanks to everyone's support :), and in particular to the tests from @Roolz, @Renand and @Met


Last but no least, a new url => https://companion.the-overlord.com/Conan 


For those who want to keep their preferences, a technical manipulation is available on the Conan version of the Companion https://the-overlord.net/index.php?/topic/756-companion-application-for-conan/&do=findComment&comment=259122

I would add that Apple, supposedly to comply with the new European law, has withdrawn support for PWA applications in its latest updates: therefore European iPhones/iPads can no longer use the offline mode of the application: (

Hello batboys & girls,


a new version deployed 0.26 which mainly contains new features for Conan, but Batman also benefits from a few corrections from the possibility for bilingual players to choose a secondary language of their preference in order to see the details of the skills in the 2 languages. (Sometimes a wording is clearer in one language, sometimes in the other)

I see the bat signal from season 3.


To encourage deliveries, version 0.27 of Batman Companion is deployed with support for season 3.

  • New maps with their lines of sight validated by Mono for twisted cases thanks to @Roolz
  • New player aids for existing cards
  • New versions of the rules
  • New versions of skills

Have fun !
