Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

I'll warn you that this may not be a good place to learn WML. Flight to Freedom started early in Wesnoth's history, and it's full of obsolete code, depreciated structure, and useless cobwebs. It's a great campaign (my favorite, anyways), but it's pretty antiquated under the hood. I won't stand in yo...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

Hi, yma9. I've had plans for Flight to Freedom for months, now; and I think I have to admit I'm just not going to find the time to make them happen. "In a few weeks I'll have time" has become "maybe in a few years I'll have time." The result is that FtF has become outdated and slowly vanished, while...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

I'm afraid this is a known bug. Unfortunately, my world has become exponentially more complicated in the last year, and I don't think I'll have time to get the next version of FtF out before... maybe Christmas 2011? Certainly not this summer, anyways. I'm afraid my best suggestion is to cheat your w...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

Hi, Ankylosaur.

I'm afraid I haven't had time to look at this yet, and work is sending me out-of-town until at least this next Thursday. I haven't forgotten, I'm just swamped in other things. I'll get there someday!

Sorry!

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

Wow. That's weird. No one's ever reported that before. You didn't skip any missions (cheat), did you? Theracar, dead or not, should reappear at the end of The Drake Escape (iirc) and stay alive after that. Could you please post your savegame, so I can see what might have gone wrong? I haven't had mu...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

... The Open Ocean is definitely going to get some serious facetime ... Meanwhile I declare this scenario unwinnable and highly recommend using cheatcode :n to skip it. If there is actually any solid strategy for normal difficulty without save/reload and high luck then I would like to know about it...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

I've never been fully comfortable with that scenario. Fun Fact: it used to be about fighting orcs on the ocean, but gradually morphed into the form we know today. When I took over the campaign, my first goal was to get everything running, my second was to polish what was already there. After reachin...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

Garrus: good to hear from you, and I'm glad to hear you've enjoyed the campaign! It took a lot more time and work than I expected to get Flight to Freedom fixed up to where it is now, and a few kind words mean a lot to me. Knowing that people are having a good time playing the campaign makes my work...

Re: Mainline Campaign: Under the Burning Suns

In Across the Harsh Sands, it would be nice if the Dust Devil was unable to pick up the Holy Water. This is for two reasons: it makes little sense, thematically; and its damage type is already 'arcane.' Now, granted, this is an expert-level campaign and one would hope that its players were familiar ...

Re: Humor Campaign: Talentless Mage (1.7/1.8)

That was an enjoyable campaign; well done. To my surprise, since it was billed as a humor campaign, there was real gameplay involved: playing with the noobs led to a genuinely different tactical experience. I had to rethink some of my strategies to win with units who improve so slowly. Going forward...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

For now, ydcl, I'm stumped. It does look like you did everything correctly, but the variable "guards_killed" is stuck at "1." I've played through the map a dozen different ways today, and I can't replicate that problem. What Wesnoth version are you playing? I've tested it against the last two versio...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

Okay. Hopefully everything should be straightened out now with the pbl file. It sounds like the pbl file needs to be a directory higher for PCs than for Macs, and that triggered the problem. The passphrase has been changed now, so the 97 of you who downloaded it last night (woo-hoo) can abandon your...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

I don't get it !Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but when I kill both guards, nothing happen ! Do I have to kill with somebody in particular ? If yes, this is a strategic issue. If not, I think there is a bug. Is call : Rebellion There are two goals when you first start out: "Kill the Overseer" and...

Re: Flight to Freedom (drake campaign)

Thanks - good to know.

I have no idea how this happens, because I can't upload it without the pbl file in the folder.. I assumed since it isn't part of the downloads, it would be stripped somehow. Frustrating.

Anyone around who has uploaded successfully before?
