Re: Scenario Review: (HttT) Valley of Death

Took me a while, but I killed all 3 liches on hard in turn 9. Version 1.6.5. No white mage reinforcements, got a bit lucky with some hits. The turn bonus left me for the next scenario a bonus of (wait for it...) two gold! The last time I played this there were still Holy attacks, and a single chargi...

Forbidden Forest

1.4.7 I'm surprised to see no-one think it a little odd that Angarthing's Leadership ability acts as if he is one level higher than he is. Combined with his speed, that makes him very potent. Concerning Forbidden Forest: The green leader is an "elvish lady", apparently not a completed unit, with few...

Two issues I had playing through this campaign (Windows version 1.1.10): 1. In Xenophobia, the elf would never recruit units after the first turn, dieing with large sums of money unspent. 2. Finished Weldyn under Attack, chose Duel and finished that. Returned to a saved game towards the end and chos...

Running away to the corners fails, since the undead catch up, and kill everyone within a turn or two. On further reflection, I think at least one knight was a vital part of this strategy. Send him to the north western holy water, and wait around to the west of the range of hills. The enemy should i...

Wrong :) They come out eventually anyway.

Take note that skeletons are vulnerable to impact attacks, and dwarvish fighters are armed with hammers.

The only non dwarves who should be used in this scenario are leaders and healers. Humans move much faster than elves in caves, so use Konrad (hopefully level 3) and white mage(s). There are few villages in which to heal, and a level 3 leader increases the damage of the fresh dwarves by 50%.

I'm having the sinking feeling, as I read these posts, that I'm NOT going to win this level. People are referring to their "knights" (plural), or this or that, and I'm just thinking "Hmm, I don't have any of those, at least not anymore" My "strategy" above doesn't require Knights, only level 1 unit...

OT

had a quick look in one of my save files a while ago, and i saw that every turn of the scenario was in there. If you check the "Show replay" box before loading any save game, it'll run a replay up until the last move made. For better or for worse, it does not appear possible to interupt it before i...

Wouldn't the existing movement_type value be sufficient, with a movement_type to footprint_type mapping defined elsewhere?

1360x1024, same as desktop. I tend to keep BfW in a window rather than full screen. Now that I'm used to that resolution, I use it fullscreen as well.

I went for a hilariously cowardly strategy. (1.0.2) Recalled two knights, sent them after the holy water. Recruited elvish fighters. Immediately moved the three key units up towards the extreme north west corner, using the elvish fighters to slow the north eastern enemy. Mostly it's the wraiths that...

I cheated ;) (v1.0.2, normal) Wouldn't a couple of free halbardiers be handy? :) AFAICS it's necessary simply to have large numbers of horseman type units, maybe with some elvish scout type units to pick off weak enemies without risk of retaliation. Use Paladins to heal them. I didn't really have en...

Re: IDEA: Proposed revised FPI/Wesnoth Philosophy document.

As I noted in my post here perhaps one of the reasons we get so many FPIs is that the FPI documentation is scattered across a few documents, and is more a collection of case law than something a newbie can grasp quickly and easily. Excellent, thank you. Despite the flippancy of my first post , I re...
