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But it feels very tough to even get started making anything new when every tutorial is half a decade out of date.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.)

Re: be notified about posts in one's own threads

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. Is it me, or people who choose default values for such things, who live in a alien world? ;-) Does someone know if there is way to invert thiese de...

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.

Re: more difficulty levels and max gold limit

P.S. Is it correct to assume that you liked the idea of adding two difficulty levels? There was a discussion on the discord that 5 difficulties may be redundant. I am interested to gather opinions. Right now in TRoW there's a big difference between the medium and hardest difficulty levels, so I thi...

Re: The case against the Dwarvish Steelclad/Lord

Interestingly both the steelclad and the lord had their melee damage and hit points increased (some time between Wesnoth 1.0 and Wesnoth 1.2).

Re: more difficulty levels and max gold limit

P.S. However, I am going to insert new difficulties between the existing. Not sure that those names will fit well. Since it will be UMC I think it is ok. I'm not sure if the existing names really make sense in TRoW though - e.g., currently the hardest difficulty level is called "Challenging", but c...

Re: more difficulty levels and max gold limit

In version 1.14 the names of the difficulty levels are always taken from these six values:
  1. Beginner
  2. Easy
  3. Normal
  4. Challenging
  5. Difficult
  6. Nightmare

Difference between difficulty levels is very significant. I had the same issue with other campaigns in the past too, so it is not TRoW only problem.
In Eastern Invasion, the hardest difficulty level also seems to be very difficult compared to the next level.

Don't know if it's related, but for the last couple of days I have to re-login to the forum every day. Previously it would remember me for weeks. I didn't change anything on my end.
Are you checking the "Remember me" checkbox when logging in?

Is there any way i can get the new campaign not by the new installer because i have a 32 bit pc for the moment.
Yes, if you have version 1.14, Wings of Victory is available in the add-ons.
