So a colorful stderr.txt? So my method would still work. My method just shows the best way to solve individual errors, not how to find them. Now to find them, that 1.9 highlighting thing would help some.

EDIT: The in-game error log only shows one error at a time, while the stderr shows a bunch of them. Also, the in-game error log has a terrible habit of giving irrelevant errors. At least 1 out of 2 errors I get from there are irrelevant.

Not exactly, it just shows the mistakes, no yellow highlighting. Just text pointing where the mistake is.

Well that helps. Looks like they've cleaned up the error messages. I'll switch over to 1.9 once my favorite add-ons get ported :D

Use wmllint tool (sudo apt-get install wesnoth-1.12-tools) to check code. It built into graphical wesnoth/data/tools/GUI.pyw tools that come with Wesnoth sources.
