Re: set_menu_item and debug

A simpler solution might be to use [print]. Though getting the fonts and duration to match up might be finicky.

Re: Elves that are not Elves

In Canada, they're usually called elves, or sometimes Santa's helpers or Santa's little helpers. Which leads to this CollegeHumor skit . But all the old folklore tends to get mashed together in English. Even the newer stuff isn't immune to the cultural melting pot. In The Hobbit, for instance, gobli...

The wiki lied to me! Thanks vghetto, fixed now.

Re: Campaign: Invasion of Arendia

I believe most of that is already fixed in the current version, v0.15.6. Invalid [avoid] and Faldor & Ethel (but not Sarah) are still issues. Thanks for the report!

Re: Changing AI parameters in events

Thanks mattsc! I was looking at AiWML and Wesnoth_AI for that, didn't see it anywhere.

Changing AI parameters in events

I have the following code in a [side] tag:

Code: Select all

[ai]
	[avoid]
		terrain="Ww"
	[/avoid]
[/ai]
I'd like to remove that restriction in an event, but I can't see how to put [ai] tags in an event, or how to direct it to the correct side if I could. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Campaign: Invasion of Arendia

Well, I just ported this to wesnoth 1.14 and put it on the add-on server. Feel free to download it. It's also on github . So far, I haven't made any changes aside from making it playable, though I have some usability and polish updates planned, plus fixes for some lesser bugs. All scenarios should t...

Re: _server.pbl and version control

You could have _server.pbl on master but with the password left blank. I thought the same thing as soon as I woke up. I don't think I've ever slept on something quite so literally before. One solution is https://github.com/vgaming/wesnoth_upload Hot diggity dog! That should be officially supported!...

Re: _server.pbl and version control

That's actually not bad. It kinda defeats the purpose, since the _server.pbl changes don't end up in the same commit as everything else, and can't be shared anyway, but it's still better than nothing. Thanks, vghetto.

_server.pbl and version control

I'm about ready to publish a campaign, so it's time to make a _server.pbl. I'd like to put that in my git repo - I think title, description and especially dependencies should be versioned. But committing the passphrase is a bad idea. Is there a way around this issue, or do I have to suck it up and g...

Re: Optimization Discussion - Legend of the Invincibles

I've found that the single most important thing in LotI is to maximize your resistances. Your units won't die easily if they don't take damage. The other thing I really like is slowing attacks - the ring of iced veins is great! To that end, my favorite units to max out are duelist wizard (silver mag...

Re: Suggestion: Optional Win Conditions

You could also make an era out of it. Just copy the contents of the default era's [era] tag, and add the necessary events. Like so: [era] id=era_optional_wins name= _ "Optional Victory Conditions" {RANDOM_SIDE} {multiplayer/factions/loyalists-default.cfg} {multiplayer/factions/rebels-default.cfg} {m...

Re: Suggestion: Shared team economy

The obvious way to limit abuse is to limit the number of recruits per turn. Maybe only allow 3 recruits for the first 3 turns, then income/(16 * #players) recruits afterwards, assuming 16 is the average cost of a unit.

On maps with small castles, this is a minor issue.

Re: A New Heir

The apprentice mage image doesn't load on linux (and presumably not for macs either). I fixed it by changing

Code: Select all

image="/units/Apprentice-mage.png"
to

Code: Select all

image="units/apprentice-mage.png"

Re: Insane Hermit bugs

Does that unit have another attack before line 39? If so, make sure that one has balanced tags, and quotes where needed.
