Stripped-Down Wesnoth?

This is probably a question more intended for developers than anyone else, but everyone feel free to chime in if you care to. It's also TL;DR inducing and completely unimportant. Wesnoth's size and sophistication has grown steadily over the course of its development. If you look at the early release...

Re: Wesnoth 1.14 on Android

Anyone else have this problem? I play this on my phone while I'm sitting on the "throne", and I get so involved that I forget the passage of time, and by the time I get up, my legs have fallen asleep and I have to stumble out of the bathroom in agony.

Old Sounds for Current Version?

I really like almost all of the new stuff in the latest builds of BfW, but I really am just sour on the new sound effects. Is there a way to get the old ones back? Like from around the time when wolves howled instead of whined when you killed one? Can I just grab an old version and swap the sound fi...

Re: Is anyone working on a campaign based on Game of Thrones

I just figured since there was so much fan-made GoT stuff out there already it would be OK, Wesnoth being non-commercial and all. Didn't realize so much was involved. I'd be happy with a clone/parody if it stuck closely with the elements that made the book/tv series great. I feel like a lot of it co...

Is anyone working on a campaign based on Game of Thrones?

I'm a fan of the books and tv show, and even though some of you might gag at the thought, I'd be really interested in playing out campaigns based on the series. Searching these forums yielded surprisingly little about it, except for a couple of book and boardgame reviews. I did find a download for a...

VGA Compatibility

My fancy 3D video card died yesterday. While I await the RMA'd card, I am running my system on a Geforce4 MX. I run Windows 7 64-bit and there are no compatible drivers for this card, so it's using the default Windows "Standard VGA" driver. Battle for Wesnoth is one of the few games I play that stil...

Idea: Exploding (unit or object) On Melee Attack

Just a simple idea that could be applied either to a unit or to a stationary object that a unit can interact with: Basically, the rule would be that if you attack and/or kill said unit or object with any melee weapon (as opposed to a ranged one), it explodes when it dies (or spits out something or g...

Re: Game Size?

I figured I'd better add to this thread one more time. I probably came off pretty rude by making an issue out of the size of the game, but I actually know a lot of people I'd like to get to enjoy this game, but their systems are pretty outdated, and the bigger this game gets the slower it gets. But ...

Game Size?

I'm a first-time poster so I apologize if this is a repeated question or has already been discussed, but I was unable to find anything with a forum search that seemed related. The current Windows beta version is 297.5MB in size. Compare this with the 1.0.2 version which was 35.2MB. Why has the game ...
