Re: SLOW Performance Issues: post here to report

And I still find it weird that my laptop cant run wesnoth, I know it's not a super computer at all but I have run games that in my head seem much heavier cpu wise than wesnoth which is just a click game, and when the game came out on steam the first time I played it for a while and it ran fine with...

Re: SLOW Performance Issues: post here to report

The thing is I never used to have problems playing the game so maybe something changed ? Note that the game was heavily rewritten for version 1.14 (it was converted from using SDL version 1.2 to 2.0) - it now requires more resources than version 1.12 and earlier. Wasn't there something about a thre...

Re: [POLL] What Operating Systems do you use Wesnoth on?

I didn't see one on the trends page. Maybe I missed it. Total downloads are interesting but don't really mean much for comparisons since the start date varies wildely. I'll probably show the most downloaded addons during the last week. I'd probably store the numbers and offer a drill-down feature, ...

Re: [POLL] What Operating Systems do you use Wesnoth on?

I saw yesterday an interesting statistic. https://knal.ga has a list of trending campaigns. What I see from it: 1.12 is not dead, with around 1/3 or 1/4 of the download numbers. Note that the statistics might not be showing exactly that since it only shows the trend (the difference between the last...

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

The campaign represents "the first direct elvish clash with orcs" so this probably important to save this moment of Wesnoth history and not to demainline it but rather rework it. Interestingly, the original version of the campaign didn't represent the first clash with orcs at all - it was simply a ...

Re: older versions of Wesnoth suddenly ignoring add-ons and save files

I'm running the games by double-clicking the wesnoth.exe application in its installation folder; I couldn't get 1.12.4 to open from the taskbar shortcut. I've just found that the taskbar and desktop shortcuts I made for both 1.10.7 and 1.12.4 no longer work! Yikes. That's probably the issue; you ne...

Re: older versions of Wesnoth suddenly ignoring add-ons and save files

Recently, I've tried to play some slightly older versions of Wesnoth-- specifically versions 1.10.7 and 1.12.4-- and found something shocking. My preferences had all been reset, they claim I have no saved games to load, and all campaigns except the mainline ones are nowhere to be seen. I checked th...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

But it feels very tough to even get started making anything new when every tutorial is half a decade out of date. I must be missing something--are there any current tutorials or examples to help me get started with WML? The WML Guide add-on should be up-to-date - it was created last year for the la...

Re: SLOW Performance Issues: post here to report

The map editor in Wesnoth 1.12 seems to work better for large maps. (Actually the Wesnoth 1.8 map editor is even better yet.)

All right, found them. A very, very weird point is that (by me) this box is by default prechecked for a reply, but unchecked when creating a new topic.

Re: Mod : Advanced Wesnoth Wars

the icon of your addon seems to be about as big as your addon and takes up a significant amount of the addon list everyone downloads when connecting to the addon server. Please reduce the icon size or use a path to a mainline image instead of a data URI. The image seems to be a mainline portrait an...

Re: testing campaign scenarios

That is an option I used. But as you say, not having a decent troop... Without advanced units this is useless for most campaigns after 1-2-3 scenarios. For mainline campaigns, the easiest difficulty level should usually be winnable with minimum gold and no recalls . In theory. Note that there is so...

Re: Game Mechanic Question: Defense

Note that there are some special attacks (backstab, charge, marksman) which do not apply when the unit is defending. These are documented in the manual.
