Re: Can not download the game or connect to server in China

Can you provide the results of a traceroute to wesnoth.org and sourceforge.net? For Windows, go to Start, click Run, type "cmd", click OK and type: "traceroute wesnoth.org" Windows Vista users can open Run with the keyboard combination Windows Key + R. When you have the results s...

Re: Wesnoth 1.4.1

Hi, I have Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002 with SP 2 and an Intel T2050. Which one do you think suits my computer better: Intel 486 or Pentium 4? I have ruled out the other three. Thanks for the help! The Intel 486 is ancient stuff so go for Pentium 4. Then again there is this other thread wi...

Re: Quick reply box/option for the forums

I don't think it will cause a significance or even measurable strain to the server. On the contrary because people using it will request fewer pages. Unfortunately it's not natively supported by phpBB3, so you would have to install a mod, and this is annoying when updating to a new version of phpBB....

Re: Wesnoth 1.4.1

Where did you download the file? If it was from sourceforge.net you can trust it to be safe. I searched google for the thing your AV reported, and found others complaining about false positives. I think the best thing you can do is contact NOD32 and ask them to look into it. I have also installed a ...

Re: Big problem with extensio win XP

I suspect you are downloading content for multiplayer instead of campaigns. There are both campaigns and things such as new factions and maps for multiplayer on the addon server. I'm not really active with the campaigns but I know Bad Moon Rising is one available on the addon server. Don't forget to...

Re: State of the multiplayer server

Actually renting a rack is quite expensive. Though we have had reasonable offers from people to do it for free for us. I found a provider offering 2U space for $30,- a month, with 250GB data transfer or unlimited for $50,-. If you have offers from people giving you free rackspace I would definitely...

Re: More of a failback than a bug but...

This goes for a lot of other units, can't ask to have a realistic looking corpse alternative for every single unit in the game. It happens very rarely that someone kills a spider with a walking corpse. They are very cool looking versions for horses, dragons, trolls, woses, etc. Go check them out :D

Re: New version issue

This was asked and answered before, I tried to find the answer, believe it is somewhere at the Release Announcements, Compiling, and Installation forum section. The answer was a negative one and I believe the reason had to do with a huge number of files being changed by a lot of people and the compl...

Re: Why do people quit playing?

is RNG fair for everyone? No the RNG is very unfair and extremely biased, especially towards people losing the game. I have let the AI play 9 games, results for AI1: Game 1: Inflicted -2% / Taken 0% (after 9 turns) Game 2: Inflicted -3% / Taken +3% (after 19 turns) Game 3: Inflicted -23% / Taken +1...

Re: State of the multiplayer server

I don't have experience with US hosting providers other then BlueHost, but isn't it much cheaper to buy a server yourself then to rent one? Then you can choose your own parts, and renting rackspace shouldn't cost more then $50,- a month for a 2U server. And yes 256MB for a server is a complete joke.

Re: So many add ons so little time

I somehow doubt it will help to buy more ram, I have 2GB myself, enough to run Wesnoth five times have a huge number of websites open, and watch a movie at the same time. But even for me loading the game goes slow after I have a number of add ons installed. Some of them seem to be more of a problem ...

Re: oos I did it again

Can you attach a savegame?
Finally I would appreciate if that message on the oos message saying that one of the most likely reasons for oos is cheating, removed; neither I nor my partner cheated.
Thats is not what it says:
