Re: Unit ids not being found by lua

Right ... when I hit this yesterday the source code was hitting other lua errors fairly reliably making it hard to test this. Looks like the problem is that [+units] {./units} [/units] isn't recursive; the subdirectories of the units directory aren't caught. Listing them explicitly fixes the not-fou...

Re: [mainline] Renaming Khalifate for Wesnoth-ian identity

Conversely, from what someone posted about the meaning of caliph and sultan, it looks like the religious meaning of the former is a connotation. It's denotation in-era (much like the Roman Senate deciding which deceased caesars to declare god-emperors, and Shintoism's designation of Japan's emperor...

Re: Large scale battles

This was attempted back in the Wesnoth 1.6 era. Plan on waiting ten to fifteen minutes for the AI to move all of its units at turn one. The corresponding player-controlled army will need to be undersized to avoid taking multiple hours to execute one's own turn properly. (cf the finale of Hammer of T...

Neither.

The similarities are "obvious" once you've actually read the major short stories (or their abstracts) of H.P.Lovecraft. Even if it's not intentional, there's most likely a common origin.

Re: Wesnoth 1.13.10 (1.14 beta 2)

Looks like Multiplayer "Local Game" is down for campaigns: cannot start Legend of Wesmere. "Error: The selected game has no sides!"

1.13.8 could do this fine, so this is a regression.

Re: [mainline] Tentacle of the Deep resistances all wrong?

I always considered the tentacle of the deep a shout-out to H.P.Lovecraft. That is, the main body of this tentacle is simply "elsewhere", so arcane vulnerability is easily ret-conned (it's not just the tentacle taking damage, it's the portal to "elsewhere" the tentacle is using to even be there to t...

Re: How to turn up the error reporting detail?

Confirmed: [castle] tag was enough to make further testing grindable.

As the lua interpreter no longer does Perl/PHP-style variable substitution in strings in 1.13.8 (it did at 1.11.5 and 1.10.6), I expect to have to audit all of the lua for that before further testing is meaningful.

Re: How to turn up the error reporting detail?

No urgency ... think this forum thread will be adequate clarification (I don't think a one-off account creation for the wiki makes sense). I tested lifting the scenario configuration out of [generator] and counter-changing scenario_generation=default to map_generation=default : no effect. Checking l...

Re: How to turn up the error reporting detail?

I am not qualified to revise https://wiki.wesnoth.org/MultiplayerContent : multiplayer campaigns (as of time of commenting) are documented as required to use the [multiplayer] tag as top-level, and are documented as requiring a [campaign] tag as well. That is indeed incorrect (swapping out [multipla...

Re: How to turn up the error reporting detail?

Ok (yes I'm having to splice in mp campaign configuration -- the rules were inverted ~1.11.8 so even the best-known at 1.11.5 needed splicing in a campaign tag that went from banned to mandatory. There may be other problems.) Failure is happening during scenario load so yes no chance AI is involved;...

Re: Mystery Campaign

Obviously too late, but for the next reader... the options are in increasing wealth.
* It is very difficult to complete more than three scenarios on Standard.
* Limited and Excessive are easier; these are meant to be indefinitely playable. Excessive resources are higher than limited resources.
