Re: Statistics dialog "Inflicted" and "Taken" unclear

It's not the reloading itself that invalidates the statistics, it's the fact that you are choosing which turns to reload, which skews the results. Even if you reload only to change strategy and not to explicitly get better RNG, wouldn't you agree that it is more likely for you to reload a turn that ...

Re: Statistics dialog "Inflicted" and "Taken" unclear

Oh, I thought you meant you kept getting positive luck on the turn you save loaded but it appears you're talking about the overall campaign stats? In that case of course the overall luck would be positive most of the time, that's the whole point of save loading. Only the turns you accept get factore...

Re: Statistics dialog "Inflicted" and "Taken" unclear

I get the impression that if you save and reload 90% of the time you will get positive luck and 10% of the time negative luck, about that, and even if you get negative luck later it will usually turn into positive. I think it has to be some flaw in the RNG or the effect of loading on the RNG When y...

Re: Puzzle challenges!

It is exactly 1/7, because any of the 7 races is equally likely to be chosen. If you happened to get the 8th option which doesn't correspond to any race, you'd just keep repeating the process until you got one of the 7 valid combinations. The probability that you won't be able to choose a race ever ...

Re: Puzzle challenges!

Zap-zarap: your answer was basically correct! I assumed that since you didn't include TTH you just meant to throw that result out if you got it, which would be the same as wtrawi's method. There's actually no x such that 7 divides 2 x due to unique prime factorization , so what you want is the next ...

Re: Puzzle challenges!

Yeah, everyone is correct, very nice! :D Wtrawi/zap-zarap's answer is the most efficient way but Samonella's method also works! What's the expected number of coin flips that this method would take? That's an interesting puzzle in itself! I can't think of a way to calculate it directly, but one way w...

Re: Puzzle challenges!

How about this: You would like to choose at random from one of the 7 Wesnoth races to play. But ever since your red mage missed all their attacks that one time, you've had serious doubts about the Wesnoth "random" number generator. You don't trust computers and their "pseudo" random numbers anyway, ...

Re: [SP] [Wesnoth 1.12] The Goblin Rebellion

Just finished the new version of the finale where you start in the middle. I just sent the trebuchets on a suicide mission north to go kill some orcs (the strongest side). Their heroic sacrifice will always be remembered. :whistle: The goblin leaders just ran east to the nearby keep, and from then t...

Re: [SP] [Wesnoth 1.12] The Goblin Rebellion

Just finished the last scenario, which was much easier than I expected. Are you supposed to be able to recall those trebuchets? I recalled them and didn't end up using them because the battle was over before they could get there, but I imagine they would have been very useful especially against the ...

Re: [SP] [Wesnoth 1.12] The Goblin Rebellion

That's an interesting campaign idea- attack of the massive level 0 goblin hordes! :twisted: I liked the stabber units, they really fit the goblin playstyle of sending them to almost certain death to do a bit of extra damage. I played a few scenarios (Wesnoth 1.12.6, hard), some really quick notes: A...
