Now it's showing the old error again. Why is it doing this?! I've done nothing, yet it keeps changing error messages. I got rid of Scenario 4, and it's still doing it. I have no clue what's going on.

some more bugs:

in _main.cfg

Code: Select all

{@campaigns/Reclaiming_Gryphon_Mountain/maps}
{@campaigns/Reclaiming_Gryphon_Mountain/images}
that's only needed to include a whole folder with *.cfg files in it...

in scenario 3:

Code: Select all

{EXTRA_SCENARIO_MUSIC "frantic.ogg}
{MORNING]

	[message]
		speaker=narrator
		image=wesnoth-icon.png
		message= _ "And so the gryphons rested, but soon continued on their long journey escaping from the undead."
	[/else]
but it's working now.

just focus on the problems logged in stderr.txt... it's been a bit confusing at the beginning, because there were bugs in several scenarios. once you modified one the order of how wesnoth parses the scenario folder changes and you get a different message. it helps if you remove all but one scenario and get the problems solved for each one.

A text file in main wesnoth folder listing all the game diagnostics and errors encountered.

It randomly gives me different error messages. Why? I do nothing to the campaign at all; not even open the file, yet it changes error messages.

Also, if stderr.txt is supposed to show errors encountered in the game, for some reason it's not showing me anything. I want to know why sometimes my campaign works, then later it will give me one error message; later another! It's so confusing...

It works! The problem was in the _utils.cfg file. Now it's fixed. I plan to post my campaign soon!
