Re: RELEASE: Coming of the Storm - v1.15

Old Wesnoth player, back for the first time in a year or so; just played straight through CotS. First: kudos: some genuine innovation, some neat tactical challenges, a lot of rewards for smart play. Thanks - really held my interest. A couple of small bugs: the Cleric-advancement issue mentioned abov...

Re: 1.4 Campaign: Bad Moon Rising (0.3.2 ~ 30 scenarios)

Another possible nit: should I be able to recall in 'Final Showdown'? Took out the lower-right lich (getting a message about "one down" that didn't have a context?) and am now summoning my recall list; feels wrong :-).

Re: 1.4 Campaign: Bad Moon Rising (0.3.2 ~ 30 scenarios)

This falls squarely into the 'nit' category; overall, BMR is clearly a superb campaign. So, the nit: dogs are able to mount horses and transform into horsemen ;-). [They're also able to pick up the Elf bow from an earlier scenario, but that didn't seem *quite* so unlikely..] Just coming to the end o...

Re: Campaign: The Life of a Mage

I echo previous plaudits; but having just finished the first 3 (?) scenarios, defeating Karin et al., it was vaguely annoying to have gotten Dillon and his peasant friend up to experienced Swordsmen by careful play, only to lose all of that xp (and the hitpoints!) when he goes off to be a mage. Oh w...

Re: Guardian Order

No offer of help, I am afraid; but I *very* much enjoyed the beginning of this campaign. A couple of comments: * the two southern 'reinforcement' camps during the marauder defeat are a long way away, and if I had not deliberately delayed I would have defeated the enemy before reach the SW camp. This...

Bugs...

Some odd stuff is happening after the apppearance of the undead in Night Raid. * The villages all revert to uncontrolled * Some of my units are unable to attack: they can move, and the sword icon appears when an enemy is selected, but no combat ensues * And/or, some enemy units appear to be unable t...

The game didn't end on caravan delivery - but that's because after 'delivering' the caravan to several places and having nothing happen, I gave up and killed the enemies. Checking the code, it looks as though there are only 4 hexes which trigger the 'delivery' event? That's annoying :-). I've played...

I agree that levelling is slow; honestly, though, there's *no* problem winning all scenarios without losing a single unit. Just ended the caravan delivery on turn 11/80, so I've a bankroll of >1000 gold for the next scenario; thus far, levelled four archers and a defender, with a bunch of other unit...

Enjoying this very much today; drake tactics (especially against other drakes) are interestingly different.

One small bug report: in 'Sea Journey,' the human Grand Marshall (Alamar) is in the recall list, which seems odd ;-)

Very much enjoying (as an academic!) the setting.

However, I really *hate* the persistant inability to recall. Scenario 2, OK, I understand and agree with the limit to new undead - but why cannot they then be recalled for the flight in scenario 3? Annoying.

Otherwise, bravo :).

Just re-played, using your suggested movement for the first couple of turns. That avoids drake attack - but then it's all trivially easy, with Viktor making it to the temple on I believe T9, just in time for the Drakes to defeat the northern horde (and after disposing of the southern horde using onl...

Naah - I thought that the intro dialogue was pretty clear that I *should* avoid killing drakes - tough, when they kept sending missile guys at my knights! - and I even guessed the negative impact of killing them from the 'repay tenfold' dialogue comment. If there were any units other than Deuterus t...

A new scenario, woohoo :). Just played through - the very early stage is *tough*, arriving w/ 90 gold and trying to head to a temple that is *only* accessible to one unit! Once the turn-triggered (I assume) events kick in, and Deuterus actually manages to open the temple, it's all very easy (too eas...

Just echoing a couple of points from immediately above: (i) Killed off Rashdin (and everything else in the cave!) during 'The Revelation' as I had also given Nelayin the banishment wand; (ii) as a consequence of that same scenario, Nelayin was fully-levelled afterward, and I agree that never getting...

Enjoyed the first couple of scenarios (even if Lastt Battle is a bit huge - and I echo the time limit issues; on easy, even guessing the right approach, it took me 47 turns). In the middle of 'First Contact,' though, I get an instacrash: no error message, Wesnoth just quits (and doesn't even give th...
