Re: Random or Pseudorandom?

I wonder if this is just a matter of how you are thinking about the problem. I'll assume you do have a good understanding of probability, as you've said. Let's think about a typical campaign, using very generalized figures as a basis: * 15 scenarios * A typical scenario length of 15 turns * A typic...

Re: Random or Pseudorandom?

Ah, thanks a lot. Right after I read this I went back and saw the SVN link on the compiling page. The next free time I get I'll go look and start figuring things out. I figured that in the end it would be the rand() function, and I know it generates numbers across the spectrum properly. In response ...

Re: Random or Pseudorandom?

Haha now I feel like whining. You mean I need to go load the binaries and check it myself... that's an interesting point though, now I want to figure out exactly how many attacks I've done this afternoon. I had assumed around 1000 which puts the aforementioned events at around 1% probability, but of...

Random or Pseudorandom?

Now hopefully I can start talking about Wesnoth's randomness without causing a massive threadnought of opinions. I'm concerned about the randomness of Wesnoth but NOT the way you're thinking. I played Wesnoth in the past, after lamenting to a friend that Fire Emblem needed a multiplayer aspect. We h...

Re: Bats: Flying Wonders?

Why has nobody suggested this scenario!? 1. Griffin (or other living unit) sees giant mushroom and remembers this one time in college... 2. Griffin gets large mushrooms for eyes as it recalls being high out of its mind and seeing all those green-skinned women. 3. Griffin lands on mushroom and begins...

Dodgy characters as leaders

"The best defense is to not get hit." -Magic the gathering card, fend off I started this post as a response to the ulfserker conversation, specifically the archer problem: an elven archer sitting on a forest space, in range of more than one of your villages. Do you attack him with your ulfserker? S...

Re: This is how the Dwarves lost Moria

That's sweet! I'm going to go start a game now with a friend, and do a goblin spam vs a zombie/bat spam! Hopefully I'll get a good screenshot and replay.

Re: You think a faction is overpowered? Come here!

This discussion is very good, helps me to understand Drakes so much better. I played my second game ever of Wesnoth as the northerners against the drakes, and poison saved me. My opponent got an oracle, and that thing was a pain, but I'd managed to get a level 3 wolf rider so he went and mauled the ...
