This may happen 1) if you have been logged in, wesnoth crashed and you re-login: for a few minutes (don't know exactly how long) the server 'thinks' you are still logged in 2) another player uses the same name without knowing about you (well, 'raist' isn't that common) 3) someone is impersonating yo...

As mosters go, we should probably have heffalumps and jagulars. Are these Finnish monsters? There aren't any yet in Westnoth as far as I know. They could oppose the Mediterranean ones: Centaur (Cavalry, may be a bit more like Elvish scouts, close and long range attacks, probably carry a bow, or a s...

nightrider: Yeah, no more information needed :D If you search the forum, you'll find out that you're not the only one with this problem. I played this campaign a few months ago and it took me 5 or 6 tries, even after reading the hints in the forums (just search them). As joshudson said, ride as fast...

Darth apparently means dark in German. what the heck... "Darth" has no meaning at all in German. And aren't the bad guys called Darth Something in Star Wars? (not being a fan boy I'm not quite sure) Btw. there are do-it-yourself stores in Germany called "Obi", but "Wan", "Kenobi" and "Ken Oh" again...

It helps if you tell us the name that doesn't work. BLANKS are not allowed (as in 'The Dealer'). You may use an UNDERSCORE though.

To get idea of the real size of your WML, you should start a local game and then save it (probably in binary mode). The size of this savefile is what the server is trying to host for you. Somehow all my saves with 1.3.6 seem to be text, even if I select binary mode. Don't know if this has anything ...

I know this is off-topic, and should I get flamed I really deserve it. I've also noticed that male players tend to whine about the traits of their recruits, tell you at great length how much they s*ck, how often this kind of disaster usually happens to them (nearly always) and how depressed they are...

About robbing a unit, that would make more sense as an ability. A thief like unit could rob a dead unit of about 5 gold, while lvl 2 thief like unit could rob it of 10 gold, etc... In the MP scenario "A New Land, End of Days" you can steal gold, not from the dead though. In "Brotherhood of Light" y...

The guy who owns this account (hjw) watched some of the replays. The way he shouted "HODOR!" after each game suggests that they made quite an impression on him.

Re: Units aren't in Help Menu til they have been in a game

I mentioned this in a post about a different issue, but I am unable to read information about a Unit in the help menu until that specific unit has made an appearance in a game, past or present. This topic reappears quite often. The default reply is: "Otherwise new players get overwhelmed by the she...

We just finished it, here comes a quick feedback. A very nice RPG! We played with extended era, settings as suggested. We didn't experience any bugs or glitches. The inventory with healing items worked without problems. Due to reckless game play we lost 4(5?) lives in total and were able to beat the...

When I try to do some of the campaigns it says that there are illegal characters in the map or something.( This also happens with development=unstable (1.3.x) releases. AFAIK the terrain has been changed between 1.3.2 and 1.3.3 (tiles are represented by characters in the map definition) and not all...
