I like the way "B" looks, but it seems a bit washed-out, and too similar to the level 1 creature. Maybe the purple of the armor could be a bit more saturated to make it more vivid and distinct. Also, I agree with the comments that the skeleton should be carrying a bone. In fact, maybe you could just...

Personally, I think that you'll effectively do this anyway. Your drawing routines should all be collected into a single code module; the same goes for your UI code. All that code is intimately and necessarily involved with your underlying drawing library anyway: if you change drawing libraries, eith...

Thanks to the magic of Wiki, the manual now explains this.

Please don't get rid of the discs...they make it really easy to see a unit's team at a glance, without the "funny squinting" that colorized sprites usually force me to do.

The back breaker for me was when I attacked the North-Western leader in 'Elves Besieged' with five elvish archers and had a grand total of ONE hit out of all five attacks. This is NOT an exaggeration. I just did some quick figuring, and I get a chance of 1 in 2000 of this happening. Unlikely, but n...

I wrote a long response and my browser (Firefox) crashed. :( Anyway, briefly, the problem is that the computer's resources increase and yours don't. You can recall more powerful units, but since units only progress to a certain point, there's a fairly firm limit on how powerful your units can become...

I gave this a spin and it was enjoyable for a little while...but the fun pretty much ended when I started a new scenario and the enemy announced "I get 1,000 gold to your 150, and I can recruit Bone Shooters, Necromancers, Necrophages, and Wraiths. Have fun dying." (it's really scary how many Necrom...

If you hit "end turn" on this save file, one of the AI's naga will valiantly charge at my sergeant (who is 1XP from leveling), despite the fact that it cannot possibly kill him. The computer can't be planning to attack him with more powerful units: nothing but naga can reach him, and the one naga th...

debian.wesnoth.org is the web site where the packages are hosted. To get them, you add this to sources.list:

I've noticed this too. The inverse problem also occurs: the AI will attack units that are guaranteed to survive and level as a result of the battle. (yes, this can sometimes be part of a diaboloical strategy....but believe me, I've seen the AI do this lots of times when it was just stupid)

You might be better off using debian.wesnoth.org rather than wholesale upgrading to unstable. Anyway, if debian takes much longer to freeze, it looks like the next version of Wesnoth might be pushed through to sarge.

yes... the save file has a, waddayacallit, variable, in it called next_scenario= and it is currently either " " or "null". you must either replay from the beginning of the scenario (from a save that does not end "Turn {X}"), or hack your savefile so it instead says next_scenario=test_clans or whate...

If I understood this function correctly this is the longest range of movement your opponant could move if your units were not there. Thus it disregards ZOC and is only useful to see where you should move to be completely safe from the enemy this turn. You're thinking of Control-b, not Control-v. Th...
