Is everything in forums GPL? I tought it need to be uploaded to the Add-on server so it becomes under GPL license.

You are right: they need to be uploaded to the add-ons server to be GPL. Powershot just thought "Hey, to the best of my knowledge, that image was uploaded to the add-ons server, so I can take it from the forums and use it for myself!" In that case, I think it's okay, but be wary of doing that systematically.

I'm no expert on legal issues, however, but that's my take on it.

I'm sure there was a rule, something along "if an an image is made by you and you attach it to a forum post on the wesnoth forums, and some more conditions, then you implicitly surrender it to gpl". Maybe that rule has been abandoned though since I can't see it in the stickies.

Question, if you make a picture GPL, and you use it in a game, is the game GPL?

Not necessarily. Only the picture. (to the best of my knowledge)

Different parts of game can have different licenses.
Frogatto code is GPLed, but graphics (levels, music, characters etc.) are not, for example.

Khalifate are not in the game anymore, hence the error message. Go to your userdata directory, find EoTW folder and replace era.cfg file with this one:

Yeah, they removed that faction when Eotw was still on the same server. So, you have to edit it. Like Shinobody said.

Hi everyone.

sorry for the discontinued work. I will probably resume it sometime in the future.

Meanwhile, I made a WIP portrait of the Battle shifter.
