Re: Ladder Site Online...

I think the ladder timer is actually too fast. Most of the games can be played like that, but some are just impossible, due to the massive amount of units, planning and all that. I got into bad position several times because of timeout. I actually DID lose 2 games due to low timer, and one vs 8877 I...

Re: How to Play Isar's Cross

Not sure how you worked out 6 or 9 gold, but say you do get that much, you think exchanging 14 gold for 6 or 9 is a good idea? Well if you steal the village, then if the opponent does nothing about it, you just gained 6 gold (usually for nothing). If he takes it back using 2 units for the attack (n...

Re: How to Play Isar's Cross

A merman fighter is 14 gold. So stealing might be a good idea even if your opponent recruited to take it back. If he needs 3 units to take it, you just got 6 or 9 gold back and if he fails, he's doomed. I had also observed yesterday, that player 3 undead is weaker (if you plan to attack with adepts,...

Re: installation - need admin rights?

Well, it wasn't that way until lately (for wesnoth) and that makes all the difference for me (essentially it means I can't play it anymore, if I'm not at home). So if it's possible to fix it, please, please... Also I can't download the earlier versions anymore (dunno where from). I'd try to install ...

Re: installation - need admin rights?

The last one that I'm sure it didn't need was 1.4.1, since I found it installed (by me) on a comp I haven't visited for some months. (I dont have admin rights there) I think I managed to install even 1.4.3 without it, but I'm not sure (I can check that once I'm home for the weekend, I think I still ...

installation - need admin rights?

I'm playing on Windows XP. Since one of the most recent patches (with 1.4.1 this was surely not a problem), I need administrator privilages to install the program which is completely killing me. Is that really necessary? How can I work around that? It also used to be portable and I kept it on my pen...

I was perhaps thinking of lawful/chaotic and mirror matchups a bit too much.
me too, though I still remember playing against you when by turn 25 or so only 31 damage total was done (by me, I charged an elvish scout in turn 21 or so)

Re: Looking into a player's head - thoughts during a game

Baufo, I tried loading your save in 1.4.3 and in 1.4.4 as well, and didn't succeed with either. It tells me smth like this: 'trying to load a recall list for side two which doesn't have one' Precisely: Error The game could not be loaded: load_game_failed: Attempt to create a unit on the recall list ...

Re: Looking into a player's head - thoughts during a game

I really love this idea, two minor points, however. 1) Please post in which game version did you play this (wesnoth is upgraded often so it gets obsolate and replays dont seem to stay valid) 2) Maybe it's just me, but I really hate pdf. Why not rtf or simple txt even? Ah, I realized, I'm supposed to...

Re: suggestion about forum, development, etc...

... it keeps hopes up that aren't real. I mean take for example the 'mermen should have submerge'-idea if those threads aren't looked I'm sure it would take 3-5 pages before the discussion dies and that's 45-75posts that don't change anything. I wonder what is more discouraging: having your thread ...

a correction of myself

I didn't do much of a research in the forums to see if it was brought up before, so sorry about it. If you feel it's not worth your time, just don't read it, or close it. Whatever. I'm also more of a 'reader' here, than a writer. That's because I'm lazy, but also because I don't think I'm good enoug...

suggestion about forum, development, etc...

I got a problem here. I just don't like how things are handled. Maybe I'm wrong here, also I don't want to start a heated up discussion but this one really bugs me. The other day, a good player starts a topic called "Mabye northerns balance needs a second look". He might or might not be right about ...

Re: SurvivalXtreme: Version 2.02

My problem with SEx is that when I want to host up a map, I have a dilemma where I don't seem to have a good choice:

a) I use map settings, Sux bigtime - no fog of war
b) I set it myself, bosses are random and might be screwed up

so what should I do?
