'About' in game

How about an 'About' action when playing the game? I was thinking of a menu option that simply shows the campaign description from its .cfg file, if playing a campaign. This is useful for getting version information or to check who wrote the campaign. More generally, it would be nice to have a descr...

Here is a more successful replay. Thanks for the suggestions, but ended up stumbling on the right way through brute force in the end. I think the suicide mission wasn't that clear initially, why place a unit just to slow down the leader by a few hexes? Only on about the 20th attempt did it become cl...

OK, upgraded to Wesnoth 0.8.5, and the gettext problem has gone away. However, it seems impossible to even get through even the first scenario in Hard. The goblin leader simply gallops north, ignoring my troops. In over a dozen attempts, I've managed to engage its troops in an attempt to distract th...

Replays for Confrontation and Underground Pool. These are just for completeness, and not exactly great examples of what to do. The paladins and mages in Confrontation wipe out every unit in the undead army, and Gwiti barely escapes. Luckily only about half of the powerful units were recalled, so it'...

The Dark Hordes replays

Posting a complete set of replays for TDH, mostly so I can add a link to this to the walkthrough. These were played under 0.8.5 in Hard difficulty (edit: see further along for 0.8.8 replays).

Here is the first replay, for A New Chance.

Comments relative to wesnoth-0.8: (1) Levels: easy, hard (2) Difficulty: 6 (3) Objectives: it was not clear that subduing Li'sar was to be achieved by "killing" her. (4) Dialog/storyline: clear, moving the plot along. (5) Challenges: nothing noteworthy, but one needs to pay attention to ZOC issues, ...

allover wrote: As it stands now, it is very tempting to just read all the walkthroughs. In the interest of keeping walkthroughs for those times when you just can't figure out how to beat a level, maybe it would be nice to put each walkthrough on its own page, and then the main page can just point t...

I found this was the first scenario where I really had to pay attention to placement of units. Stay out of the range of enemy troops until you can win each skirmish. For instance, keep your mages back until dawn, then attack en masse, supported by elvish fighters. Aim to keep a solid formation, so t...

Nice reorg.

It would be good to see descriptions for the other campaigns, and some more expert advice for the later scenarios in HttT. For instance, does anyone have a way to beat Test of the Clans without lots of knights?
