Version 1.0 of Orcish Incursion is now available from the campaign server. Features: updates for 0.9 BFW version series; merged in translations from wescamp-i18n project.

more sceptre plot

I've also been working on a campaign involving the sceptre. Hopefully we can make it compatible with what people have been discussing here. So the idea is to trace the story of Lionel, the "Lost General" from HttT. I figure he's been sent by Garard I to go get the sceptre after the dwarves failed to...

Re: [advancefrom]? / patch submission guidelines

I agree, and apologies for not being responsive. Hi, David, Thanks for the reply. I'll try to make the effort to hang out on irc. Part of the trouble for me is that I've a full time job not in the IT industry, and am involved in other free software projects too. So my time is limited. But the real ...

[advancefrom]? / patch submission guidelines

Hi, everyone, I've just updated a patch (#3625) I posted on savannah a while ago. The patch itself adds a feature - "advancefrom" - that's been discussed elsewhere (see the patch entry on savannah); I needed to update it to remove a conflict with current CVS. It has been languishing for a while with...

Re: Compiling on Gentoo / AMD64

Hi I just wanted to know if anyone has been able to compile Wesnoth on an AMD64 box. When I try to emerge wesnoth (using gentoo...) my computer simply *stops responding* Are you sure the problem isn't to do with running out of memory? A machine that's swapping heavily can look crashed if it has a q...

new version

OK, I've rebalanced this level in the latest release of Incursion. You now get two silver mages to play with, and only have to keep one alive. The orcs get more gold and income, and will only recruit level 2 units. I'm interested in feedback on whether it's still too easy (earlier scenarios have cha...

Mystery Campaign 1.1

Mystery Campaign 1.1 is now available from the campaign server, and from the Wiki. This release fixes the bug zaimoni just reported. I also included some pending simplications to the way the campaign detects enemy leaders (which was related to the cause of the bug). Hopefully this release will last ...

BTW while we're talking about Delfador's exploits, I have the beginning of a campaign that I might or might not continue working on, depending on my whim and WML troubles, that chronicles Delfador's and Eldred's exploits from the time of Garard's assassination That's a nice idea. I already see nice...

Victory
That's not so good, I'll look into it. I did change the way that victory conditions are detected in 1.0, and it is probably the problem.

What is it that makes 8.9 incompatible with 8.8? Also, a question on your future scenaria, as I need to ensure it does not clash with mine. In one of my stories sometime before the defat of Iliah-Malal, I have a scenario with Delf and Kalenz fighting undead. Hope this is ok with your story... The m...

Are you sure you're playing BFW 0.8.9 and memoirs 0.5.2?

If so, under what circumstances do you get the error?

Re: redundant

Wrong. No need to be rude! Marksman is also significantly different from Magical, in that it does use the opponent's base defense in a large subset of cases. (Those being when the opponent is on a <40% terrain, and when s/he is attacking.) I stand corrected - magical attacks are fixed at 70% and af...
