Sounds like a memory leak. Did you check that all WML constructs are still properly bracketed after your changes? Have a look at stderr.txt also, it might give you some clues to what is going on.

This sounds quite unlikely -- as far as I understand, 1.2 is not supposed to be for new features.

This sounds like it could be a problem with SDL not supporting your video card. Could you post further details of the hardware? You could also try running another game that uses SDL and let us know if that was successful.

Sounds like your connection is flaky. Try using a download helper or a browser that can resume partial downloads.

Personally, i find the randomness liberating. In the end Wesnoth's level of randomness is perfect for the type of player it's designed to cater to, namely a casual, fun, free-wheeling, improvisational type of player that even though he does build his skills and gets better at it over time, it never...

Please check the changelog -- scrolling now tries to minimize jumping around the screen.

The crash when changing the resolution to be "too big" is bug 3705 . We don't know what causes it, other than possibly a Mac-specific glitch in SDL. The broken keyboard alt-hotkeys is bug 5242 . Someone who can run gdb successfully, please post a reply to rusty there, I can't do any useful debugging...

The tagfind script (in utils/) has been in the repository since July 2005. It's not comprehensive, but it's a start, and was very useful in generating the WML index at the wiki.

As far as I can tell, --enable-static has been broken for a long time (it just prepends libtool --mode-link to the usual command line, which doesn't seem to be right). I posted a commandline to generate a static binary for Mac OS X in a message to the dev list a while back: https://mail.gna.org/publ...

Sounds like you haven't installed the game onto your computer, and it is trying to write the preferences onto the read-only disk image. If you haven't done so, try dragging the game folder from the image onto the desktop and run it from there.

You could try using different bits per pixel, using a different resolution, or windowed mode. See http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/WesnothMan for the manual page that details all the options. Your video driver really should not advertise that it supports modes that your display can't handle -- if you hav...

Huh? Are you referring to the new image http://www.wesnoth.org/images/sshots/we ... lfador.jpg or the old one? If the new one, then I really don't understand these comments.

A Fischer clock would work well, and the patent expired some time back.
