Re: [engine] Extend weapon syntax for multiple weapon type series in same attack

Disadvantages: The attack statistics would be hard to calculate because of the changing damage output. Disadvantage: Attack statistics cannot be calculated, backfiring attacks could be frustrating. I think you're vastly overestimating the difficulty of determining the attack statistics. For the fir...

Re: The Ravagers - SP campaign now for 1.14 - [Feedback and development]

In Scenario 7, at the start it says Khaso hides his weakness, but hovering over his character on the map reveals his fear of betrayal on turn one. This had been discussed before, and for some reason (mainly for technical ones) I "swept it under the rug" with the argument that this is simply what "l...

Re: Suggestion for {HIGHLIGHT_IMAGE} macro

I'm leaning toward having two separate macros. With one macro it'll be two easy to forget to handle all case when we change the macro. Could you please (fix the indentation and) open a pull request for discussing this further? So sorry for the very late answer :( I was completely absent for the pas...

Re: Suggestion for {HIGHLIGHT_IMAGE} macro

If I understand correctly, your suggestion is to add a new version of {HIGHLIGHT_IMAGE} that, instead of taking {BACKGROUND_VALUE} that specifies a particular image to preserve, takes a yes/no parameter that means "preserve all images on that hex"? That sounds like a reasonable addition. Yes, that'...

Quite misremembered that :doh: Then, it's already quite possible to experiment with something like this, great :D

Suggestion for {HIGHLIGHT_IMAGE} macro

Hello, I have a small suggestion for the above mentioned macro. Currently, only background images can be protected with the BACKGROUND parameter, but background halos are lost no matter what. I'd suggest to change the BACKGROUND paramater to a yes/no boolean that would set if the background items (b...

[engine] Extend weapon syntax for multiple weapon type series in same attack

Hello, First let me start by saying that I am by no means a combat expert, and this is just my "Hollywood-infected" view of the technical details of armed fights :) I think it would enrich Wesnoth's combat system, and open up room for some very interesting combos, to allow an attack to have multiple...

Re: "upkeep=free" problem

It doesn't seem to be recognized inside [scenario]. I don't have goals here, and we strayed way off the original topic, I was just merely wondering if having the option to set base_income in [scenario] could be more convenient than having to set income for each side one by one, if for example, someo...

Re: "upkeep=free" problem

I tried it today on 1.14.5, base_income does nothing inside [scenario], so the MP screen probably works differently. Could it be a room for improvement then, that the [scenario] tag should accept base_income?

Doesn't base_income= also work in the scenario tag?
Well, it is not mentioned in the scenario wiki, and I never tried to use such key there, so I honestly don't know. I could test it some time if I don't forget.

Re: Remove object bug

That's strange. Are you sure are using the syntax right? I'm asking because it's a little bit confusing: Inside [object], the "name" is supposed to be the id key, but inside [remove_object], you must refer to it as object_id ! That's because id here means the id in standard unit filter, and that is ...

Re: Headache with [tunnel]

Yay, delayed_variable_substitution=no works and solved it :) Apparently it exists then, but for some reason, yes is the default value here in [tunnel]. I must note, I'm not sure if it's the best default value. :hmm: For now I'll add the key to the wiki.

Re: Headache with [tunnel]

No, that's not it. The two codes you pasted are identical. [not] is like [and], but with a false expectation, so several not's after each other work as expected. Also, the item appear fine on the locations, and the printf also finds legal locations. On the other hand, I also wanted to check on the v...

Re: "upkeep=free" problem

I'm not sure what you mean. base_income is a key inside game_config.cfg (described here), not in scenarios. If you want to set a side's income to 0, use [side] income=-2 instead. (since base income is +2, and side income is added to that).

Headache with [tunnel]

Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble making some tunnels appear. The idea is to store some locations, then select the sources and targets randomly. Currently, I'm just testing for 1 random tunnel, because that doesn't work already. Here is the code: event=prestart .... [store_locations] x=37-75 y=5-36...
