Re: Creating a campaign

You shouldn't be trying to load anything with the full path. One of the reasons ~add-ons exists is to avoid having to worry about this exact problem. Apparently you used it correctly in _main.cfg, so do the same thing in the scenario file as well. (It is possible to include spaces in a macro call, b...

Re: Monsters!

I have one nitpick: The skin of their noses shouldn't be creased on the top surface. what exactly do you mean by that? i could try to fix it if i knew what you mean. This: wolf.jpg The line makes the noses look a little like machinery. I don't know if you need to worry about it though. doofus did s...

Re: Monsters!

Awesome! I've wished we had a wolf portrait for a while. Three of them is even better! I have one nitpick: The skin of their noses shouldn't be creased on the top surface.

Re: Custom Unit

OneDrive causes problems like this. Known Issues General bugs: OneDrive can interfere with Wesnoth’s user config/data directory set-up, leading to all kinds of different manifestations of the issue. There’s no fix available yet. The recommendation for the time being is to avoid syncing the Wesnoth u...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Base Units

I think the problem is that the bowstring cuts off the hand, making it look like the elbow. Your eye can then follow the back of the cloak down and you think you've seen the arm. (That's what I thought.) I also can't really read his hand. I think you can fix it with a slight change to the shape of t...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Extra Units

If you're still trying to figure out what to put in the naga's other hand, why not have it carry the bow?

Re: Loyalist Units

the lv1 now seemingly are smaller but for some reason they still loko the same size to the pike and sword fighter for example. I don't think so at all. I think these are perfect. There is more to size than height after all--there is bulk as well. That's going up nicely. I also think we should keep ...

Re: Loyalist Units

These are a great improvement, and I would love to see them in the game! I guess they should be at least partly animated first though. I do agree they should be a couple pixels shorter. Elves and orcs are explicitly said to be taller than humans, but in these sprites they are not. The longbowman and...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

Maybe add a scene to the tutorial where we have the player do an attack, force that attack to miss 4/4, and then the narrator explains that that happens sometimes and campaigns generally don't expect you to save/load when it happens This message is a really good idea. However, I bet it's rare that ...

Re: Stupid Questions (see last post)

You should try these [harm_unit] sections one at a time, testing after each one, so if something doesn't work, you know where to look. Inside each [harm_unit] tag, you should also add your [filter] and [filter_location] conditions one at a time (testing after each one) for the same reason, and add y...

I like everything, but I can't read the healer's arm and recipe book. I didn't know it was a book until I read the text.

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Extra Units

I saw no comments on the nagas skin colour. Should I move on with the light green or the less saturated green? It makes sense for the nagas from different regions to have different colors, so I see nothing wrong with changing it. The less-saturated green is okay, but it is pretty similar to the yel...

Re: Possible Mainline Sprite Portraits

I know LordBob had some issues with this one, but it doesn't seem totally unacceptable, more so as we don''t seem to be getting many contributions as of late. So do I: it doesn't look like fire. We have a low number of contributions because there is a high bar. But, that's also why BfW is high qual...

Re: Getting rid of the wreath after beta testing

if Wesnoth is being updated pretty regularly, I have something much older than "1.12" Wesnoth doesn't have major version releases that often, it's just that your version is almost nine years old! You've missed three version updates, and we are on 1.14 now. You are going to continue to find it a lit...
