SSL configuration for forums.wesnoth.org completely broken

So, recently I decided to see if I could access Wesnoth's forums by HTTPS. I couldn't, since apparently port 443 on that subdomain is listened to by the same virtual host as serves the regular secure site, and of course none of the forum pages can be found in the main site's DocumentRoot. That in it...

Re: AI not recruiting

btw, intuition tells me that a human also do better when he doesnt save lots of gold and send his units into battle asap. there are exceptions, but in general, you always do better if you constantly support your frontline with troops (ye earlier you train them, ye earlier they will arive where they...

Re: Odd statistics in custom MP scenario

Those don't have anything to do with the number of losses, those are the expected values compared to the actual values. Say unit A attacks unit B with a 6-2 attack, unit B has a 70% chance to dodge, and unit A hits once. The expected damage dealt by unit A is 3.6 (0.3 * 12), while the actual damage...

Odd statistics in custom MP scenario

So, I've been developing an MP scenario for a while (well, it's MP at the moment; it might really fit better in a campaign, but I have only vague ideas of what else to put along with it, so unless and until those coalesce it'll remain standalone). This scenario is rather unusual, in that it customiz...

Why does forum search use stop words?

So, trying to search for WML terms like "time_area" gets me results for "area", without the underscore, and ignoring time. That's ... not useful. Similarly, searching for "village gold" ignores "gold".

Can we get that turned off, or the list of stop words edited to be more relevant, or something?

Re: Terrain graphics macro 1.11 update question

this has been reported at least twice but i couldn't find the threads. i'm pretty sure some add-on misbehaves and leaks images with the same name as mainline ones. found one thread: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=35432 Well, sure enough! It was indeed American Era. Much obliged; I ha...

Re: Terrain graphics macro 1.11 update question

All right. I have a feeling that moving those two includes inside your #ifdef might fix it, although I couldn't find any hard evidence for that. It did, although I had to duplicate the lines inside a #ifdef EDITOR to make sure I could still get at them in the map editor. Which looks really impressi...

Re: Terrain graphics macro 1.11 update question

Forgot to mention I'm on 1.11.6, but I figure that should be assumed. Sounds weird. Post your _main.cfg and terrain_graphics.cfg? I feel slightly vindicated in my bewilderment. {TERRAIN_BASE Zchx flat/road} {KEEP_BASE Zkhx castle/cobbles-keep} {TERRAIN_BASE Zcvx castle/elven/grounds} {NEW:WALL Zcvx ...

Terrain graphics macro 1.11 update question

I have an (unreleased) addon with a few custom terrain types that I got to work with 1.10. 1.11, for some reason, does not seem so happy, and the error I get is "Macro/file 'TERRAIN_BASE' is missing at ~addons/CastleDefense/terrain_graphics.cfg:1 included from ~addons/CastleDefense/_main.cfg:2". But...

Re: Defence strategies? (for the AI)

I guess if we apply the experimental AI to wesnoth, all former campaign balance works would be totally screwed. But, the old AI was just a dying flower under winter's snow. There is no point keeping it anymore in my opinion, because the old AI fight so foolishly. I would even prefer to rebuild all ...

Re: combat percentages do not add up

The law of large numbers says that as the square root of N increases, the standard deviation decreases. It doesn't mean it *has* to converge though. As for your units being killed by luck: tactics include making sure that you won't lose anything valueble even if all enemy attacks hit. If you lost 4...

Presumably because there is no "magical" damage type: there's arcane, cold, and fire, and all are usually magical in origin.

Also, the Shyde line does not get arcane damage, nor develop resistance to it.

Re: [interface]Allow going to the next tip when downloading

This could be useful, although it's not a massively high priority. I'm stuck with rural DSL, and have lots of addons, so updates generally induce me to go do something else for several minutes.

Re: Pronouncing Delfador

IIRC, he was given his name in three parts: Del, Fa, Dor*. So something like nuorc's pronunciation is probably correct.
