Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

I did not finish the second scenario early for the bonus. However, I beat both with no save-loads, no big deal. Yeah, it's easy to complete the first two scenarios, but if you intend to get through the rest of them you need to consider your recall list. It isn't as bad as I thought at first, and ot...

(1) What difficulty level and version of Wesnoth have you played the scenario on? Normal, Hard, 1.9.4 (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) [1] 3 for hard difficulty, although it's impossible to get the bonus without luck manipulation. (3) How clear did you find the scenario objectives...

Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

Dave, I'd be happy to do that, though I'm probably not the best campaign player. I haven't tried modifying a scenario or campaign yet, but I wouldn't be opposed to spending a couple hours learning WML and the editor. At the very least, I can make some replays available. If I succeed in finishing Htt...

Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

Hmm, good point. I guess there should be some indication of how the author of a campaign is expecting it to be played, then. This was really all I was trying to say. I want to thank Max for correcting me regarding the manual. I said in my opening post that saveloading should be mentioned in the man...

Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

You misunderstand the save/load concept... Okay, thanks for what I assume is the official word on this topic. Perhaps this can be added to BfW's in-game documentation to prevent similar confusion in the future? Interestingly, I came back to say something that ties into what jb said--namely, that if...

Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

Some people have not understood what I meant by "saveloading". I use the term to mean any of the following: * You're about to make a risky attack, so you save the game, and if the attack doesn't go well, you load the save you made just prior to the attack. This would be "saveloading" in the most ext...

Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

Why does the game need some official standard at all? Why can't you just not load your own games if you don't want to? It's not about what the players choose to do. You're right, players can choose to play the game however they wish. Without explicitly stating exactly what does, and what doesn't co...

Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

Hello, I first played Wesnoth several years ago, and have just gotten back into it, so I guess you could say that I am a long time lurker, first time poster. I like the game, but there's one frustrating thing that has prompted me to post here. The game's difficulty seems balanced with the assumption...
