this can be fixed by creating a square sized extra image for the unit info.

That's first thing i thought.
firefox wrote:all units gain exp equal to the enemies level after combat, so if the lv4 Guru attacks, all enemies that survive will gain 4exp.
this is intended behaviour, but it might be new that it now works with special AoE attacks too ;)

It is intended when unith recieve 4 exp for battle with Guru. It is questionable when units recieve 16 exp (4 exp for every strike) for standing near someone fighting with Guru.
English, why you so foreign language? =(

I like how it has a little resemblance to Chrono Trigger! :D

For example, the Sky Kingdom is comparable to the Kingdom of Zeal? And the Void Mage's outfit looks similar to the Prophet's outfit from Chrono Trigger :p. Well not like identical but it just reminds me of it. xD

Edit/Post 2: I see that it had Chrono Trigger graphics from an earlier post? I see... I'm a sucker for any Chrono Trigger/SoM/Seiken Densetsu 3 references.

The bottom line is, this is my favorite add-on MP Era :D

@Crimson_Conure: indeed that game was (still is) one of the greatest sources of inspiration to me. The initial release of EoMa even used some of its graphics, which was of course illegal and was one of mistakes of my youth :mrgreen:

But inspirations on a similar scale happen even in default Battle for Wesnoth. For example the Gryphon Rider is based on the Gryphon Rider from the World of Warcraft :eng: Here is the proof:

warcraft version throws hammers at range and cant attack in melee.
Totally borrowing alter ego code to fix my non-working werewolf transformation ability :whistle:
If you would like some sprites to gain teamcoloring i may volunteer to work on that a bit.

But still bears a strong visual reassemble to WoW original. Nevertheless it is hard to avoid inspirations nowadays, where fantasy theme is intensively exploited.

That would be excellent! Your TC sprites have already been included in 2.0 release and you are mentioned in the Credits file. I would be happy to see more. :)

@inferno8 ah I see. Now I want to see the original sprites haha.

I love the destroyers btw! Its my favorite faction (and I bet the omen is based off the black omen from chrono trigger xDD :D)

Man I love all those slight chrono trigger references :p

Are there any like... groups for people that play Era of Magic for multiplayer?

Of course not. It was a place, not a creature, remember? :lol: But in terms of naming - no, the inspiration came from elsewhere.

Most players play EoMa for singleplayer, but there are some people who occasionally host a game with this Era. You have to be lucky. BfW is not as much popular as it were a few years ago. But when the game hits Steam, more people may learn about the Era and some old veterans may even return ;)

The wyvern rider zombie is perhaps too good being an chaotic lvl0 with an 6-2 charge attack.

Strange, somehow seen it as 6-2 in the zombie survival scenario. So was that the underground ToD bonus ?

Today is inferno's birthday and I wish Him all the best!
He is my friend but I don't think that I'm too biased, EoMa and TLU can stand on their own as masterpieces of Wesnoth.
Whoever reads this, if you haven't tried EoMa yet, check it out! You won't regret it, I assure you!

I salute you inferno8, magnificent creator of worlds, have a fantastic life! :D

Darn I may be arriving late back to wesnoth, but I had some personal issues to deal with before coming back to wesnoth.

I hope I'm not late for a balance feedback for EoMa V2.0 :C
