Re: Legend of Wesmere-Elvish(Kalenz) Campaign

In elves last stand (scenario 7) Galdric doesn't ever recruit. This doesn't make the game impossible, but it sure makes it hard and I don't think it is intenational. I'm using 1.5.6.

Re: New campaign: Return from Captivity, for 2 players

Your campaign is incompatible with 1.5.6 it seems. I managed to fix the deprecated WML's in the unit files myself, but I'm not really sure what else is wrong. Next error got had something to do with recruiting... Yea I found the problem there too. Saurians can recruit only healers and scouts as of 1...

Re: L3 Orcish Assassin / Orcish Shyde has a dumb moment

I think it would be a nice idea to give them a marksman melee. No unit has that ATM, it fits the style of the unit. Somethin along the line of 13-2 melee marksman blade and 7-4 ranged marksman blade poison would be cool (that one only because the level2 already has it in the dev version.)

Re: Faction/leader choices - random?

"once you bgin on multiplayer, try to play with your friends and using a faction you already know random can put you in severe disadvantages if you havent used a determined faction before" If choice of faction does matter for you (or you played only camapigns before), you've probably lost the game ...

Re: Knalgan's vs Drakes on medium+?

That's stupid. Random maps are utterly unbalanced. I can assure you that any decent player will defeat ANYONE even the best if he's given a 2-3 village advantage (because of the map) and favourable conditions for his race. It's like in chess I'd beat everyone (read: every single chess player in the ...

I've tried it with innounp and it works fine. It also 'installs' it quite fast :)
Thanks.

1.4.6 on XP requires admin rights... :-(

We got this problem again. Wesnoth didn't need this till 1.4.3, but since then, it does. 1.5.5 installs without admin rights too. In the other thread http://wesnoth.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22087 a solution with innounp was posted (I didnt check if it works for me), but it still sucks. Not real...

I think that this whole discussion is based on a false premise. That is: match spammers are bad. They're actually good for the ladder and good for the game. They are there when you want to play someone, that might not sound all that important, but it is. They're advertising and driving the ladder sy...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

I think this is a very bad idea (with tweaking or not). Why limit players? So what if they have some fancy ranking they're proud of. Who cares, really? The best way to keep people on ladder is to implement things like the gz upload and comments part (very good idea). It just gives a little frame of ...

Re: Countering Skeleton Spam?

Shamans actually own skeleton warriors on grassland if they get first shoot (1v1). Don't underestimate that 4-2 or 5-2 they do. Shamans are useful vs ranged units even, not to mention mages (just slow them if they aren't on good terrain, it usually works out fine). I got a simple advice for you: pla...

Re: Countering Skeleton Spam?

Only attack, when you have a good reason to. If you place your unit next to an enemy one, it's still not a reason to attack it. Even spearman only counter AI based skeletons. Just make sure you rotate them (heal the wounded behind your lines). Also make sure you keep grabbing its villages while he's...

Re: Drakes beat Northerners: Replay wanted

IB is being pessimistic with his figures even... 2 night-time grunt strikes usually kill a saurian. You usually get 2 strikes in out of 4 vs 50% defense (what they have on villages), actually, even vs 60% it's a usual outcome.

Re: Tournament of Champions 4

There is a very easy solution for factions picking. Player C sets up the game and the factions requested by player A and B. Players join the game, C starts it. Players are not supposed to look at opps faction. Of course they can cheat. Maybe there's a way around this, but I don't think it's needed t...
