Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

Let me be clear, everyone is free to play however they wish. It's none of my business whether someone else save-loads or not. If someone else want to create a repository of replays created with save-loading, they're welcome to do so. My idea is to create a repository of replays that were created wit...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

Aldarisvet, I agree it'd be nice to have replays of UMC scenarios. Maybe we should start a wiki page or something collecting replays by campaign and scenario (the mainline campaigns have a thread per scenario but UMC campaigns do not have so granular threads)? Or more radically, maybe we could write...

Re: What sprites are being added and need remastering/recoloring?

Welcome back! I'm not familiar wit the Naga Guardian line, but in mainline, Great Troll and Troll Warrior use the same sprite.

Is there somewhere a list of all sprites / animations / portraits needed?

Re: enclave's Lua thread

By the way, in 1.12.6 register_wml_action had a compatibility wrapper available: https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob/8718cd3d6f5b256d65eec7f112569f37b173838a/data/lua/backwards-compatibility.lua#L32-L37 which is consistent with the deprecation policy: https://wiki.wesnoth.org/CompatibilityStanda...

Re: Inclusion of The Battle for Wesnoth android port to F-Droid

I can't speak on behalf of "the project authors" but this sounds like a good idea to me. And we can add a donate button to our f-droid page, which may generate some more income for us :)

so my assumption is that you would just put your name in the "Who is porting to latest BfW (1.14)?" column for the campaign in the "Add-on list" tab.
Don't forget to update the "Last updated" column, a little to the right.

Re: enclave's Lua thread

wesnoth.register_wml_action was deprecated and removed. Someone is going to have to patch the addon to use some other wesnoth.foo function that hasn't been removed. (Or it might be possible to reimplement register_wml_action as a wrapper around some other wesnoth.foo function.) As a workaround, you ...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

It's not easy to distinguish a badly balanced scenario from a scenario that's difficult by design . Sometimes a scenario is designed to be not winnable except with losses, potentially even great losses. At other times, a scenario may be balanced badly to the point that it's not winnable without save...

Re: New feature to allow for easier voice acting

The_Gnat, I imagine the paths would be SomeDirectory/ language code / filename .ogg, where language code is the po code (like "en" for English) and filename is what we've been discussing. I think those paths would need to be added to [binary_path] when the campaign is played? But that can probably b...

Re: New feature to allow for easier voice acting

Ravana is right, lua code can already figure out the locale by doing something like wesnoth.textdomain("wesnoth")("Exit") , in the Latin locale it returns Exire for example. I added the Lua API in 2975d616dcf0dffb7450b6d4e35b7e6b679fcd4b and backported it to 1.14 in 3c3e73ac2dbcf91be8efd87e33ca7d752...

Or someone might find bugs in the campaign long after it was first posted.

Re: DiD S12 Easter Egg Poll

You're welcome. The_Gnat, in your version Zephrin's line sounded somewhat 21st century to me, wesnoth-era dialog doesn't usually use "hahaha" and "right" that way, and some words were missing after Zephrin's name. And yet, the tally right now is 0/1/0/0/1/4 in favor of your proposal... How about the...

Re: DiD S12 Easter Egg Poll

Double posting for visibility. Okay, I added The_Gnat's option to the poll, but that reset the vote counts on all the options. Sorry, I didn't know that would happen. My previous post has the tallies from before the change.

Re: DiD S12 Easter Egg Poll

I don't care for / don't understand why all the: No orcs were harmed in the making of these accounts. So I chose the 'none of the above' option. The original idea was for the last sentence (of dialog, narration, or story screens) in the campaign to be something to the effect of "No orcs were harmed...
