Re: just to report a bug with 1.10.2 and Seven

Hmmm, I don't know what to make of that (though admittedly I'm not an expert) I don't know if you read or understood the stderr file, but basically Wesnoth is either failing to load or finding errors with a huge array of image and sound files. If other programs work properly on your system, all can ...

Re: Avian Faction (The faction of winged people)

is it possible for the area resistances to change at that same time as well? Yeah, I can do that. I'll get started on this tomorrow morning (had too long a day to start writing code now!) - it might take a couple of days as it will probably need lots of testing and bug-fixing, and I have to share m...

Re: Avian Faction (The faction of winged people)

Would it be possible to make the "flying" ability dependent on whether or not the avian unit attacked that turn.....almost as if attacking causes it to "slow" itself... Yeah, that's possible and in fact pretty simple. Actually, it occurs to me that simply slowing the unit could be a pretty good rep...

Re: just to report a bug with 1.10.2 and Seven

That's very strange, I also use 1.10.2 and Windows 7, and I've never experienced anything like that. Do you have problems with other games, or is it specific to Wesnoth? Have a look in the directory where the game is installed - you should find a file called stderr.txt This contains any error report...

Re: Avian Faction (The faction of winged people)

If I understand you correctly, the 'Fly' ability could be implemented as a right-click menu option - the easiest method (that I can think of) would be to effectively change the unit into a different type, while retaining HP, XP, name etc. This allows you to easily change resistances, defense and mov...

Re: Wesnoth population

If the population is stable, it can be stable at any figure; the birthrate being low doesn't mean the population will be, especially since - as you stated yourself - these races live a very long time. But a low birth rate makes them much more vulnerable to disease, disaster or sheer bad luck - a hy...

Re: Too many campaingns have you fighting orcs/undead.

there might be an UMC that features further adventures of Malin, but I haven't played it yet He pops up in Invasion from the Unknown, which I found fairly odd since I played it right after completing DiD (which in my case ended with Malin and every one of his minions getting zapped by multiple Red ...

Re: vultraz's art

It might just be me, but the combination of puffy shoulders and a slim waist makes her upper body look too big and her shoulders too broad. I did a really quick edit, but I'm not sure if it's any better than yours. http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u440/jr328877b/qow_female_peasant_smaller_shoulde...

Re: Wesnoth population

...Lich Lords have made the orcs from lands far to the west attack the humans... I wonder, how did they 'make' them attack? Pay them? Threaten them? Simply transport them by magic, and then leave them to their own (violent) devices? Maybe the orcs were fleeing from the Lich-Lords. Or maybe the Lich...

Re: Avian Faction (The faction of winged people)

A couple of comments. First, having wings on their hips would seem to create a problem with balance. Humanoids are top-heavy, so if you put the wings halfway up the body, when they try to fly their centre of gravity will be significantly in front of their wings. As a result, they will tip forward an...

Re: Wesnoth population

orcs on the Old Continent...were probably the dominant species, and maybe only became aggressive after...meeting the other races. Not necessarily. There may have been other, more powerful races on the Old Continent - the orcs could have been a minor power or even slaves or refugees, before their ar...

Re: Unit coding assistance

Even without a separate vision= value, it's possible for a unit to be immobile but still able to see. In the unit file, set its movement to equal the distance you want it to see. And include this in the same file: [event] name=side_turn first_time_only=no [modify_unit] [filter] id=my_cool_tower [/fi...

Re: Wesnoth population

Based on orcs' habitual aggression and disregard for goblins specifically and their rivals in general, I suspect there may be vicious and possibly even murderous bullying within and between litters. Even if the birth rate is massively skewed toward goblins, how many of them will survive to breeding ...

Re: Another version of demons and angels

The feathered wings look wrong - the shape is too regular, they don't look real. Heavenly Infantry's right arm (our left) looks like it has been broken, and the feet seem somehow wrong. I'm not sure how to correct it though, and actually these problems may disappear when you add shading. Also, those...

Re: Inky's Quest - The Cuttlefish Campaign

I just finished playing this, and I have to say I enjoyed it more than any other campaign I can think of (well, maybe part 1 of IftU) - it's a nice, refreshing change from the usual, sober and serious stuff. It's strange, in a more serious campaign (without cuttlefish!), I think the plot would have ...
