Re: Porting add-ons - newbie to wmllint and wml

As for the general state of wmllint: wmllint was originally developed by esr, but he became alienated from the project. I became involved, improving the conversion of old WML to 1.10, fixing long-standing bugs, adding a couple of new features. However, I did not follow new WML changes closely. I don...

Re: Porting add-ons - newbie to wmllint and wml

There is a GUI frontend to wmllint written by Elvish Hunter; have you tried it? I don't know exactly what you've tried, but it is important to note that wmllint has no notion itself of the game's directory structure. You must point it to the data/core directory when invoking wmllint (preferably as t...

Re: Campaign Creation Team

To return to the subject of the translatability underscore: you won't have working translations, because that wiki example didn't show you how to set up the textdomain. True, most add-ons are never translated, and unless you know a foreign language yourself, yours definitely won't be until it's uplo...

Re: Campaign Creation Team

The Campaign Design How-To is very good, but it's meant to be a guide to the "big picture", not the nitty-gritty of coding WML. I can see why it doesn't seem so helpful to you right now, but keep its advice in mind as you move forward. OOPS!!! Everyone here has been using " Campaign How-To" to refe...

Re: Campaign Creation Team

The difficulties should be in all caps, I think.

Re: Abandoned Campaigns - Need Maintainers - Open to Anyone

How does one even begin to update/port these from the older versions of the game? Wesnoth does have some Python-based tools to partially automate the task of upgrading and debugging old content. These have often gone unused because many people these days are unfamiliar with the command line, but fo...

In 1.11, SotBE 11 has been rewritten to have a boarding/debarking system for ships carrying the human army across the river.

Re: The SDL2 transition

One point that hasn't been explicitly stated in this thread, though, is that we apparently aren't transitioning to plain SDL2, but a fork/extension called SDL_gpu. I can't really add to that, since I don't touch the graphics code (or anything else C++). In fact, the developers who seem to be really ...

Re: [Poll] Best campaign of 2013

I have played all of 'em in 1.10, in fact almost all completed wesnoth UMC campaigns. !!! But still, is there any place where I can find history of wesnoth which put these campaigns in place. Often, if I recall correctly found 'em slightly contradictory. I did draw up a timeline of UMC campaigns a ...

Re: A GUI for wmllint

This, IMO, is a serious design flaw. By the way, I found some mistakes in the wmlscope switches as well: Well, as someone once said, "(given enough eyeballs, )all bugs are shallow." :lol: I have pushed a fix for the wmllint dryrun issue to 1.12 and master. As for wmlscope, I plan to go bug-hunting ...

Re: A GUI for wmllint

I haven't fired this up yet, but this looks like a great tool to make wmllint and the other maintenance tools more accessible. Looking at the code, which looks very clear and well-commented, should help me get to know tkinter and Python GUI development, which is a field I haven't explored at all. Th...

Re: items not displayed in linux

Just a note: on 1.11, wmllint will turn backslashes to frontslashes in paths (or warn about them, if run in dryrun mode). If you're on 1.10, I did put out a wmllint++ version a long time ago that also did this, but that code was written right after I had gotten started with Python, and badly needs t...

Re: Problems With My Campaign

Just a note: wmliterator (which can be run separately, but is usually run as part of wmllint) would have warned you about the missing closing quote and the missing closing tags. And wmllint would have warned that it couldn't find the first scenario (as doofus mentioned, that "unknown scenario" warni...
