Re: RuneScape

Runescape has always been a dire experience. I have played other mmorpgs but runescape must have been the worst. I think the best mmorpg i ever played was atlantica online, not because the mmorpg aspect was anygood, but just because it would have been fun as a single player game too!!! And thats wha...

Re: wesnoth time

ahh timezones are a pain in the butt. I think the only way to do this would be daves simple solution. And where it matter about turning up to a game on time (like a tournament) it should be specifically stated in the tournament rules to makesure you know when to log on. Maby on the main wesnoth webs...

Re: Attack rotations

Random animations would make combat more cinematic... but its hard enough to get basic animations so thats a really long shot. random poisonings and %chance to activate special attacks, don't only not fit with the simplicity of wesnoth, But also will also cause the anti RNG crew to cry foul when som...

Re: D&D and the RNG?

another point, (talking about 3.5 since that is what im experienced in). After you spec a character in Dnd (say a low-level fighter), You can min-max it so that character is VERY hard to hit. It'll take most monsters a natural 20 to hit you (if the dm follows the excounter rules, to the letter). It ...

Re: Simple Attack Traits: Aggression / Defiance

Can be done with WML. Buuuuuuut... If any of the devs have seen this maby it would be a good idea to keep in mind for balance-changes. e.g if you got a unit that is crap on the attack but good on the defense but raising its damage would make it TOO good on defense, then give it agression 1. wonder i...

Re: Adjustable AI strength

It may be hard to create a good AI for wesnoth, but is it that hard to create a worse one? Heck could just change the current ais to be called easy, medium, hard. With "hard" corresponding with default. Would keep new players happy. But you would end up getting threads like "do you think normal diff...

Re: Weather effects to help balance

If the turn scale is days to weeks storms are there but don't need to be represented because on average the area wont be stormy. However I wouldn't mind seeing a weather effect on a terrain in a campaign (like a mountain with storms all the time on top of it). Then this terrain could be used as terr...

Re: Increasing or removing turn limit in scm

Other than doing it through game like turuk has pointed out you do have to dig through the files (there are no resources which tell you nicely).

However if you have not dug through the files yet, have a go, when I thought about it I was daunted, however when I did it it turned out to be really easy!

Re: How to avoid stalemates?

In a stalemate have you tried attacking, seeing if you get lucky, and then pressing the attack if you did get lucky, or working back to a stalemate if you didn't gain an advantage. You may feel that this is risky, but assume he gets average luck on the counter attack (if he get good, well whatever, ...

Re: "Elves are not warlike by nature..." rant (spoilers)

Taking the stereotypical fantasy races and comparing then to wenoth still holds true in this case. Elves are not warlike, but they do start wars, men don't understand the minds of elves and their actions may not make sense. But at the end of the day I don't see any evidence that indicates elves have...

Re: Askin if it is against copyrights

I think the op was not asking about wearing red, but elves with red skin. I think this would be fine. Just don't call them blood elves. Infact its stupid people who will call the flag on a copyright violation when you haven't copied. Probably a good idea to call them something other than elves, just...

Re: I give up!

Have you tried playing it again from the start, getting more level 2s and saving/earning more money?

Sometimes I do that and previous impossible stages become a breeze.
