Re: Even more zombie sprites needed

An idea for a different direction: "The life force pathways of the spiders were different to the other species that I had studied, even the extinct bird that forms the Chocobone was more familiar to me than the spider. I could not find a way to make the eight legs work together. Finally I kept just ...

Re: LoW Costly Revenge - impossible?

Lord (Normal) with 427 gold, but my heroes and recall list for that scenario:
* 6 Level 3s: Kalenz, Landar, 1 Marshall, 1 Champion, 1 Avenger, 1 Outrider
* 5 Level 2s: 1 Marksman (near to level), 1 Hero, 1 Rider, 2 Rangers
* Level 1s: none that are near to levelling

Re: LoW Costly Revenge - impossible?

As you've played the campaign before, and know what happens in the next scenarios, did you distribute the experience points from the previous scenarios based on that knowledge? In other words, are the units that you have in Costly Revenge much weaker than they would be if you'd played normally? I've...

Re: Tutorial Improvements

An idea for a new tutorial scenario, a re-run of the second scenario but with the player controlling the orcs, and the AI controlling the elves. This means unfavourable terrain and allows poison to be introduced. It also allows additional commentary about the previous scenario, commenting on how Thr...

Re: Ageless Era - Current Version: 4.21

IIUC, you (Ghype and IPS) are talking about two different Quenoths.

Ghype meaning the elves from 1.14's UtBS.
IPS meaning an EoC faction that's based on 1.12's UtBS.

I played Legend of Wesmere in 1.12
There were several bugfixes for this campaign in 1.14, and there's an addons-can-execute-arbitrary-code bug in the 1.12 engine :shock: , so it's recommended to upgrade.

Thanks for reporting the duplicated dialogue bug, but it's already been fixed in 1.14. :)

Re: HttT Revised

A reason to take her hostage: if the myth is that only the rightful heir can wield the sceptre, a public exhibition that Konrad can wield it while she is still alive would help his claim to the throne.

Re: Black characters?

The Quenoth portraits are in the campaign data for Under the Burning Suns. There's also a discussion thread including draft sketches that didn't go in to the game, but I don't think there's enough of a single male character to provide all of Konrad's facial expressons: https://r.wesnoth.org/t43175 T...

Re: Black characters?

I don't have time to do anything for this, just a comment and some old sprites. Konrad's a protagonist from the start, but Li'sar is introduced as an lying antagonist and is a questionable ally until scenario 21; I think she's a bad choice for naming after the player. If sprites for a female protago...

Re: Abandoned Campaigns - Need Maintainers - Open to Anyone

I think a lot of us feel that we only know part of the answer. Another part of it is to find the old forum thread and ask Is this still being maintained? That's had no answer, and SkyOne was last active in 2016, so it looks ready for take-over. Now just write "Wesnoth" in your diary every day for th...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

That seems to be a issue to discuss in the Armoury Mod thread rather than a BCoA issue. Testing on a normal multiplayer map with only Armoury Mod changing the gameplay, when an Elvish Shaman levels up to an Elvish Sorceress then she drops L1 weapons. I'm not familiar with the mod, so don't know if t...

Re: The Black Cross of Aleron (formerly Besieged Druids)

However, it seems to me that there is a distinction between destroying “without question” and going too far out of their way to destroy. They also have far more pressing concerns at hand, as I seem to remember a few characters are wont to remind the others when they decide to pursue the side quests...

Re: Ageless Era - Current Version: 4.21

A collection of confusing facts: In mainline: 1.14's UtBS has diverged heavily from 1.12, the 1.14 UtBS Quenoth Elves are a different set of elves than 1.12 UtBS' Desert Elves. In AE: it seems there are already two versions of the Desert Elves in AE - one in units/misc_units/desert-elves and one (th...
