Re: Return to Noelren 0.7.6

@ pyrophorus: "... I had only to imagine some unbelievable events ..." I rate this comment as "unjustified modesty". Tolkien explains more or less : A good story-teller ushers the reader´s mind into a world where everything accords with the laws of that world. It is therefore "true". This "BfW-inspi...

Re: Ruin A Wish: Short stories

Re: Ruin A Wish: Short stories

… Dugi, any idea why folks often fancy kill- or suicide-events regarding you ? Yet another case of overbalance ? :lol: As it happens, there´s that power " which would the Evil ever do, and ever does the Good ". GunChleoc, your wish is granted: It´s the 64-qubit quantum computer you invented that fin...

Re: Ruin A Wish: Short stories

Is THAT all what you´ve got out of the "Advanced Strategies Guide", nexinor ? :shock: It rather looks like YOU are the slave here, an addicted victim of that endemic "Just kill – Problem solved"-illusion which distinguishes the lower, more orc-like individuals. The BfW-philosophy is based on the "Go...

Re: Wesnoth book

As an aside: by chance, I found a thread about "A Novel of Wesnoth" by A-Red, I´m reading " Stone Remembers " right now. Unfortunately, the feedback-ideas to encourage such contributions seem to be not practicable, there´s not even a link on the "Poetry of Wesnoth"-site. As for me, I´d find it alrea...

Re: Add-ons client/server support for add-on ratings

Like/dislike – "ratio will tell next to nothing" … Guess that´s true. Broken/Inappropriate – "can be reported on the forum / in a review" … Why not "flagging" them on the server to satisfy players who don´t speak English or don´t like reading ? Star based rating – "currently working on this" … May ...

@ Dugi: "... allow players to choose something nice to play. They don't want to help add-on developers. " And that coming from you ? :shock: Please, don´t generalize or underrate the players: There are who DO wish to "give something in return" but can only contribute to BfW by "test-playing" … quali...

Re: Add-ons client/server support for add-on ratings

Never guessed I´d ever post in the "Coder´s Corner" :oops: I´m aware that my noobish opinion is inappropriate, but can't help it. @ ChaosRider I´d like to understand: Why should authors have the option to " not accept voting their addons " ? They can´t ban reviews on the wiki-page or on the forums ...

Re: Players’ Reviews

"Everybody ignored my point about a need for some kind of generalised rating
I'll have to rely on my last option here - doing it myself.""
There you go ! Congrats, Dugi ! :D
I can hardly wait to see how "rating" is gonna work this way.

Re: Battle for Wesnoth nominated for Project of the Month

Great news ! … and apart from the good publicity: it´s so refreshing to see BfW being properly cherished and honored in the "outerworld", unlike the kind of frustrating – imo unjustified ! – thinking / mood on the forums lately. Comparing "our" game with the latest, surely estimable competitors ("T...

Re: Return to Noelren 0.7.6

S23 (Battle for Weldyn) Recently, experts discussed "max-level"-units on the forums. Of course, RtN opens up completely new dimensions in terms of quality and performance, but 2 statements prove to be true: [ Things being different is part of what makes things interesting. ] … although: [ It's fall...

Re: Are forums a "perfect medium for flamewars"? (Re: Formal

Since "flaming" is a phenomenon of online conversation and internet forums in general, the question is surely : Are the BfW -forums a perfect medium for flame-wars ? @ pyro: what exactly is a flamewar Reflecting on this question before answering: "Flame-wars" are frequently the result of a grievance...
