Re: stats.wesnoth.org - cheaters, be gone!

Analyzing random numbers won't be sufficient, I think. Imagine you reload a turn to kill a single important enemy unit with a severely wounded horseman, and it works out fine after a few attempts, but at the end of the turn when it is the enemy's time to move, the many random numbers of your units'...

Re: How does damage calculation work?

Personally, I think it would make more sense to multiply everything instead of multiplying some factors and compose some influences into one of these factors by addition (and not others). the difference is about 10%: 25% tod, 25% leadership: 150% damage. if it would be multiplied: 156% damage. 25% ...

Re: stats.wesnoth.org - cheaters, be gone!

when someone uploads statistics - what files are used to collect this information? analyzing a replay save game would "expose" cheaters. a szenario with 20 turns should include enough information to see if someone excessively used save/load. e.g. an overall "luck factor" of 1.2 (in contrast to an ex...

Re: How does damage calculation work?

Good point, I will look into that. I am still so happy to have such nice attack dialogues in the first place! I remember the days when there was much less info in them. Still they can always get better. do you think this dialog could be changed so it would make damage calculation really obvious? ma...

Re: How does damage calculation work?

and i think charge doubles the base damage (forgot to check that in the source).

damage calculation dialog adds to confusion because it lists resistance before tod-bonus (leadership bonus isn't listed at all).

Re: How does damage calculation work?

according to source code: get base_damage (e.g 12) add backstab bonus damage_multiplier = 100 - add time of day bonus (e.g. +25, 0, -25) - add leaderhip bonus (e.g. +25) - multiply with resistance modifier (e.g. x200 if -50%, x90 if 10%) damage = base_damage x damage_multiplier / 10000 (20000 if uni...

Re: stats.wesnoth.org - cheaters, be gone!

why? i doubt there would be much left if you omitted each scenario where someone "reloaded" a previous turn. it's pretty much part of the game for some people.

why not suggest to include this information and make it visible?

it would really be nice to implement an experimental chess-like approach. e.g. just focusing (once only for each turn) on one 5x5 square with the most units.

Re: Can't lvl up horseman

horsemen can be really useful in some campaigns. sometimes you can get to the (last remaining) enemy leader and kill him with only two knights (although there are still some other units around which prevents your slower moving units to do the job). finishing a level two or three turns earlier is som...

"Help keeping the Servers running" i guess most of you have seen this "donation progress counter" on wikipedia.org once in a while. i'm quite confident that this would help raising money. maybe the counter from wiki could ...

I've seen lists of changes that are planned for 1.5. One thing that I would appreciate if you spent some effort working on during the 1.5 development is the AI. where can i find this list? i'm only playing campaigns, so this maybe doesn't apply to multiplayer: just a thought: create an ai that focu...
