That's mine for TEG which has just worked with the wesnoth-addon-manager and 1.9 server few days ago. Your type seems correct but your version= is in wrong format and icon= path is wrong.

Anonymissimus, 0.1 seems similar to the first example of a good version value?
Leuteinant, where did you put the file? Also, you could try changing the file's suffix (the extension) to lowercase.
There's already a two page thread about your endeavors and some smart folks are/were trying to help you out; not sure how useful it is to start another here.
Please zip the entire directory structure (everything: the era and the _server.pbl file) and attach it to a post or upload it somewhere...

Yeah, me too.
So, the problem has nothing to do with the add-on or the .pbl file.
Leuteinant, you should probably upgrade your Wesnoth version to 1.8.4 and try again.

Do you place the pbl file in the campaign folder, like this?
(this is just a blank campaign.)
