Re: And idea of generic tutorial campaign

If AToTB gets demainlined for not being related to Nemaara's plotline, wouldn't this campaign get demainlined for the same reason?

Note: my feeling is that AToTB should stay in, possibly even that AOI should be re-added.

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

I don't agree with a mass removal event for exactly the reason Tad said, where the few players still interested in SP would probably not be happy if campaigns were removed without replacements. That's why I'd only suggest removing more campaigns after specified arcs are done. The mass removal would...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

What would be in 1.16 though? Almost everything that's player-visible which can be backported to 1.14 has been backported to 1.14.

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

Replying here to comments originally in the "A grand design for singleplayer mainline lore" thread. Given how quickly AOI went from "it's so poorly done, we should remove it" to a merge commit actually doing that, it makes me nervious to see someone talking about removing yet more campaigns. Removin...

Re: Voiceover for An Orcish Incursion Development thread

It currently looks like AOI won't be part of mainline for 1.16, so this could become the "main" version of AOI in 1.16.

BTW, there's a typo in the thread title. This thread should show up when searching the forums for An Orcish Incursion.

Re: A grand design for singleplayer mainline lore

Why wait to remove AToTB and DM? If they won't be in 1.16 then why not have one big "remove everything" event now, so that it's clear which campaigns should have mainline time spent on them? The nature of this campaign means that it would be mostly RPG-like, focused around just a small set of units ...

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

If the player keeps switching sides, how does the progress of one side affect the other side? Will doing well in the orc scenarios make the elf scenarios harder?

Re: An Orcish Incrusion: some questions and ideas

According to TRoW, the merfolk have already been to the Great Continent several times between 12 BW and 7 BW accompanying the First Crown Prince of Southbay, and that Southbay prince met some elves. It would seem odd if these were the only encounters between merfolk and elves - is there anything in ...

Re: I downloaded battle for wesnoth today and i got a game bvreaking glitch

my native language is german ... PC also set up for English Do you know why it chose Hebrew? If it had chosen German or English then I might understand, but choosing a different language sounds like a bug on top of the font problems. For 1.16, the design has changed to using a globe button instead:...

It looks like the Ladder Era folks have picked up the ball, but they haven't reached Ladder Era v1.0.0 yet. https://r.wesnoth.org/t49964

Re: A grand design for singleplayer mainline lore

Would the backstory of these demons be part of the player-visible lore? What plot-points would come from them being demons, instead of being liches so ancient that their race no longer walks Iryda?

Re: Packaging changes for 1.14.10 and 1.15.3

Is it a problem when packagers don't change the default? I mean, we'd still know that "Linux repository" means "distribution whose maintainer does trigger this", and "Default" is "self-builders and distributions whose maintainers don't trigger this".

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

A pull request is now open for this removal, 4592 . I might add that the first few levels of HttT are also very simple (intentionally) as a sort of pseudo tutorial. We have a lot of other campaigns that start off simple. I disagree on this - I think a beginner could play through the first few levels...
