Re: Potentially stolen artwork from Battle for Wesnoth in steam game

I actually downloaded the Linux client from www.denizenseven.com and unpacked it. Without running it, I found a file called GrandStrategyClient-0.9.35-Release.jar inside of it; unpacking that one as well, I found a readme.txt with the following content: The SGX libgdx theme in the game is the work ...

Name Generation Bug?

My understanding is that for units' given names, context-free grammar name generation should take precedence over the markov chain generation. However, for dwarvish names, that does not seem to be happening. If I replace the markov name list with a new name list, dwarvish names will be entirely gene...

Re: Descent into darkness: oversight?

Allright, as far as I understand it, the main characters home is in the northern estmarks, just south of the great river, and far east of the Ford of abez. Now, the Ford of aber is the easternmost point where the river can be crossed. So why does the village have problems with orc raids from the mo...

Hymir

One of the elvish names defined in names.cfg is "Hymir", which is the name of a giant/ettin in Norse mythology. Wouldn't that name make more sense as an orcish, ogre or troll name? :hmm:

Re: Using artwork in another game

Hello. I read a lot of topics about licensing of wesnoth art in this forum. If i understand correctly, it is possible to use artworks in other GPL'ed projects. But how to be in situation, where project consist of two parts: open-source (GPL v2) client (with art) and server (not GPL predominantly). ...

Re: May I post Wesnoth music and sound effects to Fanburst?

"Any use that isn't making money off of it is fine" really has nothing to do with GNU. It's actually okay to make money off of GNU things. The main idea in the GNU GPL is copyleft which basically means you have to share-alike any derivative works that you make. Indeed. The GNU has nothing to do wit...

Re: Official Steam Greenlight discussion thread

According to Dave, we should not have any issues with Wesnoth as it has already been Greenlit, and as Tad_Carlucci pointed out, Greenlight has not yet been dissolved. However, to prevent any future complications, we are moving ahead with the necessary paperwork ASAP and are considering uploading th...

Re: More sigils for Wesnoth!

I'm not a fan of the saurian sigils. Sure, when we think about saurians we think about lizards (they're even named after lizards, after all), but I doubt they think of themselves that way any more than we think of ourselves as apes -- a technical truth, but hardly something that defines us or that ...

Re: Saint Seiya

Depends on the country where you live in, may it is called in an another way. Anyway its a serie of manga and cartoons with warrior knights (that usually fight with bare hands and have various special powers) based on astrological signs. I think there will be copyright problems. Yes, it would be co...

Re: V1.9/1.10 - 03 - Ka'lian under Attack

Playing v1.12.5, the map labels for the Ka'lian Under Attack map seem to be completely messed up. The map seems to have been changed but the labels were maintained in the same positions - so that they are now in arbitrary locations, instead of i.e. village names appearing under villages.

Re: Wesnoth2 ruleset (or undoing Wesnoth)

That's kind of the appeal. :) A battle is not an orderly, predictable thing, and nobody really has control. It's not only wrong moves that can turn the tide, but dumb luck, the weather, a slippery spot, one unit getting there slightly too early or too late, or any number of other things, and being ...

Re: Wesnoth2, Wesnoth, Inc, and other things

I guess I can understand that artists don't want to see their work "cheapened" but at the same time, that's sort of how sharing works. If someone uses my code in a poorly engineered project that's not supposed to bother me. I definitely agree. My thoughts on the matter of licensing for art being mo...

Re: Wesnoth2, Wesnoth, Inc, and other things

Okay. What license do you suggest images, sounds, and so forth be licensed under? Well, it mainly depends on what your goals with the art are. I personally prefer to allow as much freedom as possible and thus license it under the CC0 or CC-BY, but you should use whatever you are comfortable with. I...
