Re: possible bug with BaB tile

Nobody is arguing that it's not a bug. Nor is anyone accusing you of causing it. We can not fix an issue we can not find. This issue is NOT part of the base Wesnoth. It MUST be part of an add-on. When we know which, we can determine if the root cause is a bug in Wesnoth, itself, which we CAN fix, or...

Re: Website Safety?

F-Secure is out of Helsinki, which probably explains why you got it for free. I'd never heard of it before so I checked their products out. Frankly, you can do a **LOT** better with virtually any of the name-brand products. It looks like F-Secure is just a basic anti-virus scanner with a password ma...

Re: Website Safety?

F-secure appears to have a reputation for false positives.

Re: Website Safety?

No idea why an anti-virus program would complain about a web site. My extremely up-tight, highly paranoid (but it aint paranoia, when you know for a fact they really are out to get you) security systems have no problems with any Wesnoth site or service. That said, I have heard of some old and/or off...

Re: Connection failed: the semaphore timeout has expired

Assuming this is similar to the OP's issue, the question is: what is it about his network which causes this for him, when nobody else sees (or, at least, reports) the error in normal operations. If, for instance, there is something about his network which allows him to start a game but, then, comple...

Re: Connection failed: the semaphore timeout has expired

I agree tweaking the router is sub-optimal and a client-software option would be better. But I'm still thinking we're running off fixing something which may not even be the core issue. We might be spending a lot of time 'fixing' an error which is actually something else like an equipment failure at ...

Re: "acronym" BBCode does not work as advertised

At least change the example when you hover over the Full Editor button to not include the apostrophe.

Re: Connection failed: the semaphore timeout has expired

The problem with using SO_KEEPALIVE is the "client" referred to earlier is the computer on which the TCP socket option is set. The values (time, interval and probes) are system-wide. So, yes, we could set SO_KEEPALIVE on the server (wesnothd) and we could even adjust the parameters to be unreasonabl...

Re: Connection failed: the semaphore timeout has expired

My first suggestion would be to go to another network. School, library, cafe, a friend's house (in a different neighborhood). You tried two systems but not a different network. If that's not feasible, check your router and modem are properly configured, power down everything, wait five minutes, powe...

Re: Connection failed: the semaphore timeout has expired

I just looked, again, at the links from Penarctagon. You have you answer: it's a Windows issue. You don't give enough information for more assistance.

Re: Are Dunefolk human?

The problem is 'race' and 'species' are used as if they are the same thing. I would suggest that the term 'race' is species-specific. Orcs, for instance, are generally all of the same 'race' but self-identify as different 'tribes'. The problem is that many of these groups can, and do, inter-breed, y...

Re: Time for 1.14.6?

Was wondering the same thing myself.

I've not run through the Github milestones for 1.14.5/1.14.6 items which are still in process. Someone should and re-triage them to 1.14.7 or 1.15 (and, yes, we need to talk about whether there should be a 1.14.7 or if 1.15 is nearing readiness, too).

Re: Affecting random "rolls"

I know. But I can't reply on the Steam forums because they (Steam) require me to purchase the right to support our product. Maybe, now that they have some actual competition, things will improve. *sigh*

Re: Affecting random "rolls"

Why is it people have no problem with their Hero constantly running heedlessly into battle and surviving by the skin of his teeth but the one time he trips over a tree root and stabs himself its all the fault of some defect, if not outright cheating?

Re: Tools development

It might be best to begin work on the Eclipse plug-in by evaluating if it's even worth saving. It might be better to simply remove it from master and consign it to the commit-history dustbin.
