Why Luck Belongs in Wesnoth...a personal experience

I recently went to the beach and found some pieces of PVC pipe that were encased in padding and wrapped with duct tape (these were obviously made for the purpose of swordfighting). There was another guy who proved to be a fairly even match for me (one of the "swords" was broken and he used both halv...

Re: Problem with ./configure in Ubuntu 8.10

Are there any handy shortcuts to getting any of those dependencies, or must I download and compile them individually?
Either way, I am going to try to get it working tomorrow.

Problem with ./configure in Ubuntu 8.10

I am using Ubuntu 8.10, and when I unpacked the tarball for 1.6.1 and tried to use ./configure, I got the usual output of the command (checking this, checking that), until it ran into the following error and stopped: Checking for SDL - version >= 1.2.7 and SDL_ttf - version >= 2.0.8... no configure:...

Re: Scenario Review: NR 5 - The Pursuit

Solved the problem of having my best units stuck in the Great Chamber by restarting the level. The hardest challenge was that of killing Malifor; I was given no warning about his, shall we say, limited suceptibility. I had to figure out how to kill him as the white magi can't kill him in one visit t...

Re: Save time - the DIY luck thread post

Want to be lucky? If you play as the Dwarves, choose Black as your team color...if you're the Drakes, pick Blue and you probably won't do half-bad in the luck department, but if you Really want good luck please pick the Knalgans and play as black. (so goes my brother's superstition, which also inclu...

Re: Bandits and Thugs?

The footpad line of units are very useful against skellies as they can simply use their high defense numbers to avoid getting hit, offensively using their clubs against archers and their slings to attack regular skellies without retribution and defensively using their defense to escape most enemy bl...

Re: Compiling Wesnoth 1.4.5 in Ubuntu 7.04

Is /usr/local/bin the default location for installation if I use the package manager, but not if I compile from source? I ask because I used Symantic Package Manager to uninstall Wesnoth 1.2.3 to see whether that would make me able to open wesnoth 1.4.5, which I have compiled. I then checked /usr/lo...

Re: Compiling Wesnoth 1.4.5 in Ubuntu 7.04

Thanks to your help, I was able to successfully compile wesnoth 1.4.5, but I already have wesnoth 1.2.3 and I don't know how to start wesnoth 1.4.5 as the older version is in the Applications -> Games menu, and when I tried typing the command "wesnoth" at the shell prompt from within ~/Desktop/wesno...

Re: Compiling Wesnoth 1.4.5 in Ubuntu 7.04

I was having trouble with the sudo command: It asks for the password, then when I hit enter it doesn't do anything (just returns me to a shell prompt) and doesn't let me do anything that requires sudo privileges. I just got off the phone with a friend who used the package manager to get Wesnoth in U...

Re: Compiling Wesnoth 1.4.5 in Ubuntu 7.04

I don't understand all those instructions about the libraries in the "prerequisites" section-how to I know which ones I need to install and which ones I already have? Do I simply compile them using standard instructions, or do I need to put them in a certain directory? What does it mean to download ...

Compiling Wesnoth 1.4.5 in Ubuntu 7.04

I am using Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn), and I am new to compiling in Linux from source. I got the ./configure command to work properly (didn't get it to work properly for Atomic Tanks, but that's another story), but when I typed "make" I received an error message saying, "Make: *** No targets specifie...
