Re: How to translate a UMC / What is happened to WecCamp ?

Obviously, you need some computer skills for that. And Windows users may be a bit at a disadvantage from the outset, right? The tool to generate translation catalogue templates, wmlxgettext, comes with Wesnoth (if I remember correctly) or can be downloaded from GitHub. It only requires Python, whic...

Re: josteph's patches

hello, 10 : dont remove the clock please. 13 : a very good idea. you see directly how many XP you need to level. Several of these changes are subjective. They don't have to be your cup of tea. No less than five of them were already rejected from master. Therefore, I'm explicitly not proposing any o...

Re: Elf Inconsistency

So is the lack of Uradredia in TRoW the problem then? Anyway I meant Uradredia in HTTT since you mentioned they also appear there. He doesn’t need to be in TRoW. The issue is that there’s characters with his name both in LoW and in HttT despite there being a massive time gap between them. It did se...

Re: Save the green trolls

To be picky, any human activity would be impraticable without external meta informations :eng: even if I'm not sure to know what exactly is a meta information :? It counts as meta because it constitutes information about the game (or the game’s history, in this particular case) that is not part of ...

Re: Save the green trolls

This is definitely something we don’t need to keep. There’s no point in confusing players for the sake of a reference that makes no sense without meta information from outside the game.

Re: Elf Inconsistency

There's no need to come up with different names for Elsomithir or Uradredias, as it could be an indication that they are descended from the council members of TRoW, but it would be simpler than trying to indicate in other ways that they are not the same person. Uh. LoW begins 20 years after TRoW, s...

Doesn't that also apply to Kalenz? https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob ... fg#L19-L22
If you played LoW you’d know why Kalenz is an exception. :P

Re: Elf Inconsistency

Similarly, Uraderedia's portrait is not used when he is met in HttT. Back in the day when LoW was originally written (think 2005), we hadn’t formally defined the elves’ lifespan to be limited to 250-300 years, so it’s extremely likely that the Uradredia that appears in LoW was intended to be the sa...

Re: Login on official multiplayer server fails

A platform upgrade caused the server to get confused, so we’ve restarted it to address the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: site crash

So, my bet would be that maybe forum and mainpage use some hardware acceleration that makes "modern" (or should I say, bloated?) browsers crash. Nothing special compared to the rest of the website. If your browser can manage to cause your computer to crash or hang while rendering our front page the...

Re: Wesnoth Wiki scope

I seem to have run into a problem. I'm keen to use references, so that articles like Haldric I's are only written to reflect actual in-game canon. However, MediaWiki only offers references as an extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Cite Unfortunately, wiki.wesnoth.org doesn't use thi...
