Re: Campaign: Autumn Kingdoms - Prologue (Now v1.6.x Compatible)

Okay, played through as far as was possible (that is till scenario 10 crashed with nonexisting unit type). Firstly technical nitpicks 1) Don't use recruit=Nil, it sometimes crashes campaign when you do ctrl+r. Use empty string (recruit="") or omit the key for these cases. 2) Don't use hype...

Re: Adding items to maps in the map editor

For what it's worth, I think it would be cool to be able to overlay an image in the editor just to see what it looks like. It wouldn't actually put in wml code but would give the designer a visual idea without having to load up the scenario.EDIT: Actually, never mind, because then you'd have a thou...

Re: Campaign: Autumn Kingdoms - Prologue (Now v1.6.x Compatible)

Tried to play it, unfortunately scenario 4 is unbeatable at the moment. Normal difficulty, turn 15. My units are roughly at x=24 coordinates, princess is at around x=39, on 6hp and sorrounded by enemies. Even assuming theres no combat along the way, I don't think I'd made it there in time.

Re: Campaign: Autumn Kingdoms - Prologue (Now v1.6.x Compatible)

Man, you really need to get to grip with your files :] There's five pieces of dialogue in scenario 11 file looking like this : High Cleric Tollins: So Aramelle, I will give my blessings, but not to you. No, I give it to your cause. Aramelle: High Cleric. I... High Cleric Tollins: Or perhaps I bless ...

(1) What difficulty levels and game (& campaign) versions have you played the scenario/campaign on? (If reviewing a specific scenario, please specify. Give detailed reviews of as many scenarios as you feel like.) Normal, 1.6.1 release (2) How difficult did you find the scenario/campaign? Which,...

Re: Wesnoth refuses to identify my weapon special...

What do you mean by "there's no name?" The name doesn't show outside combat? You need to add name_inactive and description_inactive keys. Specials as opposed to abilities are by default inactive outside combat, if you want them shown in unit description all the tame you need to remember th...

Re: Wesnoth crashes when installing add-ons

There's nothing wrong with Wesnoth on Vista. Make sure you've got enough room to extract the add-ons, and nothing (like Data Execution Prevention or AntiVir software) stops it from working properly.

And.

Please do what the Tech Support forum rules ask you. Want our help, play by our rules.

Re: A question about one of the parts of the weapon special tags

Abilities and specials can be filtered to work only in certain conditions (like on a given terrain type or while defending, see ambush and steadfast as examples). When these are met, ability is active and shows normal description. When they are not (because for example the unit is on a grass not in ...

It would actualy help to get that error message you know. And the contents of stderr.txt. You're here long enough, you should know the rules by now.

Re: Imperial Era Campaign - Epic of Vaniyera

(as I don't believe an army of raindancer can stand a chance) Eh, people of small faith ;) Hvaing beaten the campaign recently I'd advice the following : 1) Raindancers, raindancers and even more raindancers. Your raindancer to non raindancer ratio should be nearing 1 - 1. These guys got three magi...

Wiki assumes you did 'all in one folder' install. And you could just search for it, Windows as poor as it might be, still has a thing called 'search for files or folders' you know.

Re: Epic of Vaniyera

Yeah, Sidhe are weird to play. Not sure what I can do about that though. I'd suggest something like an optional help mode (something like pick up scroll to enable hints, or new turn event with a help/no help option). It'd mean some writing to do, but if player decided to use it he could get some hi...
