Re: Scenario Review: DiD 10 - Alone at Last

I just completed the scenario on Normal, it deserves some good balancing. First of all, I agree with the previous posters: if the paladins arrive earlier, the scenario is easier. Indeed you want to hold Volk's army near the paladin camp until the camp spawns to make Volk battle the good guys. Second...

Problems with resolution

Hi all! I'm running Wesnoth 1.8.0 on Ubuntu 10.04 and I had the following problem: the game starts fine, but, if I select full-screen and set the in-game resolution to 1024x768, the current run of the game goes fine, but at the next boot of Wesnoth I get "No signal" on my monitor and I have to reboo...

Re: Please suggest me a campaign!

I really liked playing Decent into Darkness. I still have a savegame from "forever and ever", I just like playing undead. Especially with new (1.6) ass-kicking sprites for all ghost units. I played DiD, it was nice! 8) Just wondering if it is affordable without two or three Nightgaunts, however I h...

Please suggest me a campaign!

Hello! I finished all the beginner level campaigns and the intermediate campaign "Liberty", selecting the intermediate level of difficulty in each case. After that, I tried to play "Legend of Wesmere" and "The Eastern Invasion", but I stepped upon two scenarios which I can easily define "campaign ki...

Re: I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

You get them back and later in the campaign, you lose *half* of the non-shaman line units on your recall list, except for the loyal characters of course . If your play style is that dependant on a few level 3 units, you might be doing something wrong. (can't your level 2 units compensate? or don't ...

Re: I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

Ok, I read the thread more carefully and I can summarize the main points as follows: - The unwanted "exile" of Anduilas is going to be fixed; - "Breaking the siege" is going to become a faster map, where non-flying units will have a more important role; - The carryover of gold after "The chief must ...

Re: I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

Anduilas is left behind to defend the country and you get him back only some scenarios later... Your suggestion about the expendable targets is surely right, but it requires more gold to be implemented and it doesn't seem to me that I have gold to waste in this campaign :-\ Maybe I'm just too unexp...

Re: I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

He shouldn't be, this is a bug. Which version are you using? And, as TheHouseJackBuilt said, shamans are game changers. Most of the tomato surprises are unfortunately inherent to the plot. They might be discussed if you specified them though. ;) I don't think that's a bug, it's stated clearly in an...

Re: I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

1. Unless you get Anduilas killed, he should not leave your side and neither should any other loyal troops except for landar . If you lose him somewhere without getting him killed, that's a bug. 3. Surround your units with expendable elvish fighters. Even if there's a hole in the line, the AI will ...

Re: I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

2. No, I would say this is just a place where you really need to have levelled up your units well, and it can't really be impossible without flying units. Your point "You are forced to play the way the creator wants" may have some truth behind it, but you really need more than one example to prove ...

I really dislike "Legend of Wesmere"...

Ok, I hope this thread won't be intended as a useless rant, but as a critic feedback. Moreover, I hope this is the right forum section, I was in doubt with mainline campaigns feedback. So let's start... I think this campaign has at least three serious problems: 1. You are deprived of what you fought...

Re: How am I going?

I finally defeated the HttT campaign! Normal difficulty, it was challenging, but not frustrating. I think the most difficult scenario was "The swamp of dread"... However, just a little question: wouldn't be a good idea to implement some form of "achievement" for the completed campaigns? Something as...

Re: How am I going?

Given where you are at, more melee units would be useful, but your magic/ranged units are very impressive. There are some holywater bottles here in this scenario, which would allow you to level 2 horseman who go to get them. You will need to level a few elven fighters too, but you should only need ...

Re: How am I going?

If you can post a save of your game at the start of the level I believe I could turn it into a replay of the level. I'm not sure I could take out all the liches but I think that I could get through the level without significant loss and the next one is an easy one anyway. I didn't say I can't beat ...

Re: How am I going?

Yes, it's the scenario of HttT with the three liches and I have 322 gold. I suspected I should focus on some more melee units, but I hate to replay previous scenarios, so I'm hoping to develop some going further in the campaign :) Is this a mistake which will lead me to replay more scenarios or can ...
