Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

Could there be a sticky somewhere that listed current leagues/tournaments, and possibly a link to the ladder for those interested? It could be linked in game (the title screen help messages, somewhere in the general help, and the MP welcome message) and out (Steam page, Discord, and the wiki.)It wou...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

Given there's a Sign Up button that then opens up a web page that then does the same thing has meant it's not a very high priority. For #2, that is very much intentional The problem is always going to be having the time to organize and oversee it And that, in a nutshell, is my point 3. That's fine,...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

I do not think any problem would make that people just go and visit one site or two. I have spent years volunteering or working at game shops, clubs, etc. running events, teaching people games and what not. The number one rule of starting a player on a new game, or moving them into a new facet of a...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

Off the top of my head: 1. Sign up in client, rather than having to go into a browser, register here, etc. I've had a number of friends who were very turned off by the whole process. 2. An automated, or at least considerably more user friendly, ladder. Currently this is the process you have to go th...

Wesnoth Discord

I've been looking for new Discord servers to join in the last week or so, and noticed there doesn't seem to be one for Wesnoth. If you're not familiar, Discord is a text/voice chat service, similar to IRC that can run from a browser, or as an independent application. I started a room real quick, lin...

Re: Official Steam Greenlight discussion thread

Do we have any kind of a timeline for how the Greenlight process works? How long a title needs to get voted on, what the devs need to do with Valve after the initial approval, etc?

Re: Streaming?

I'm gonna stream a little tonight if anyone is interested. I'll be starting in ~30 minutes (8:30 Eastern Standard Time) at http://www.twitch.tv/bproberts . Probably go ~1.5 hours. Haven't played in awhile, so I'll probably do AI skirmishes to get my feet wet, though if anyone wants to setup a game d...

Re: Battle for Wesnoth on Steam

There is an older official trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3P39lppcH4

It still looks reasonably current to me, I don't see why it can't be used.

[Interface] Back button instead of cancel in MP lobby.

Currently if you want to change something once you've hit the Lobby screen in multiplayer your only option is to cancel, which kicks you all the way back to the main menu. Would it be possible to either add a new button, or replace the existing one, to go back one screen to the Create Game menu? Thi...
