The Drakes

The Drakes probably have the largest learning curve to learn how to play. Before the 'professional balancers' came on the scene I was involved in banging the Drakes into their current form. (Trust me, you should treat the unit balancers with a lot of respects-- it is the most contentious job in the ...

Nice to see you as well

Nice to see you as well! It's been a while since I've even logged in here but I always enjoy skimming my way through to see the latest 'doing that are transpiring'. I grin when I see posters I remember-- I love this forum in particular. It's great to see people with stories to tell hacking away on s...

I think you're making life too hard on yourself: The point is in each scenario you try to achieve the scenario objectives in the most economical way, that is avoiding overrecruiting for instance as much as possible. See that as a challenge. For instance in TROW one could get out on the first ship i...

Agreed. TROW on easy or medium is definitely harder than HTTT. And don't be ashamed to play first with the easiest setting, most people who don't have hundreds of hours of Wesnoth under their belt still find it challenging. At the time TRoW was written it was meant to ramp up more quickly, with a s...

Re: That Worked

That was pretty subtle trigger. Did I miss a hint earlier in the scenario?
He he, maybe on easy mode there should have been a sign above the pillar that said, "Step Here \/ ".

no no

No no, umm... "Shade" is a name I use because I'm prone to lurking- I just happened to find the 'blue shield' topic interesting. At this point I've been out loop for a long time... I still (happily) get mailing list mails, and I follow along a bit. I wouldn't touch a 'hot topic' in development in de...

In the end

In the end this has to be at the discretion of a campaign author... They have to try to do what they feel is best in the context of the campaign they create. Any sort of forced and arbitrary solution would violate this... Even the vanishing Jessica, as campy as it is, kind of added to the mystery of...

One of the things I did try to do in TRoW

One of the things I did try to do in TRoW was absolutely minimise the number of "if you kill it game over" type units. When I first played Wesnoth (back in the days before time began) I loved HttT but it did make me wonky trying to keep all of the 'important' characters alive. Because of the 'medium...

heh...

Thanks for the bug report. I have fixed this in CVS (Shade, I hope you don't mind) and the fix should be in 0.9.2, or whatever the next release is called. I certainly don't mind :) Been a little swamped lately... But I have a nice Wesnoth weekend scheduled so I should at least be able to catch up o...

Lava is in CVS. It works exactly as you described, save that land units simply can't pass it. Think of it as underground canyons...

AS A NOTE

AS A NOTE: Any Mandrake mirror that has the development branch of Mandrake (That's the 'The Cooker' is) will usually get the 'newest' Wesnoth about a day or two after it is released. The packager, 'Misc', doesn't encourage people to run the cooker version, as cooker software is 'experimental'. But t...

Re: Changes in Heir to the Throne

I miss two things: Blackwater Port: Trying to hold the mountains near the orcs with my army, then counter-attacking. Siege of Elensefar: Sending assassins to kill the Lich. Both of these seemed to be different than other scenarios. Shouldn't these at least be kept somewhere we can play them? Blackw...

You have no idea how much I appreciate your services as a middleman who messes up my suggestions and proposes them! You're really doing fantastically! By the way, I DO mean this seriously... I do try to keep the ball rolling. If I'm prone to thinking something has any grounding in reality I do try ...

I haven't tested at all, but I'm not opposed- heck, I'll test a bit... See if I get really itchy to make a proposal :)
