Unknown Scenario Error

Post by MightyMelvin » March 10th, 2010, 9:43 pm

Hey folks! I am trying to design my own campaign. But no matter how hard I try, I keep getting the "Unknown Scenario Error". I have carefully read the other topics about this problem but I can't find an answer there.
Oh and probably there will be other errors, but I especially would like to get rid of this one.

Campaign file:

Code: Select all

[textdomain]
	name="wesnoth-Ochuls_Secret"
	path="data/campaigns/Ochuls_Secret/translations"
[/textdomain]

[campaign]
#texdomain wesnoth-Ochuls_Secret
id=Ochuls_Secret
name= _ "Ochuls Secret"
icon=fugitive.png
description= _ "The undead have left their safe caves and are now roaming the free lands. It's time to end their evil deeds. Blablablabla"
abbrev=OS
define=CAMPAIGN_OCHULS_SECRET
first_scenario=HomeRun
difficulties=EASY,NORMAL,HARD
difficulty_descriptions= _ "&elvish-fighter.png=Easy;*&elvish-hero.png=Medium;&elvish-champion.png=Hard"
[/campaign]

#ifdef CAMPAIGN_OCHULS_SECRET

{@campaigns/Ochuls_Secret/scenarios}

#endif
Scenario file:

Code: Select all

[scenario]

id=HomeRun
next_scenario=Unknown

name ="Home Run"
map_data="{@campaigns/Ochuls_Secret/maps/HomeRun.map}"

{TURNS 10 10 10}

	recruit=Elvish Fighter

	{INCOME 5 5 5}
[/side]
[/scenario]
I used the jumpstart directory structure.
I am on a Mac, so its all located in ~/library/preferences/Wesnoth 1.6/data/campaigns/Ochuls Secret/

Hopefully its an obvious error! Thanks in advance.

That'd be a mismatch.

Hmm, renamed the folder to Ochuls_Secret (thought that was less work than changing everything inside the main and scenario file).
When my map or scenario would have a space in it's name, should you type it with a space everywhere or with an underscore?

By the way it didn't remove the error... more suggestions?

Edit: thanks for quick reply by the way!

It seems your error is from the difficulty_descriptions. It sometimes makes the unknown scenario error occur. Remove or correct it, then restart the game.
And you had better fix:

Code: Select all

type=Elvish_Fighter
before restarting. It will probably make an unknown unit type error.

I have actually made it work by using A Simple Campaign. Compare what different are in between them.
Or post your folder.

Your main file and scenario were not perfect, but good enough to work. So something else is incorrect.

EDIT: oh, I have added side=2 simply because A Simple Campaign is two side.
Making the first scenario work is the hardest, but it will be easier after that. (by beetlenaut) My first scenario took almost a month to work though.

Re: Unknown Scenario Error

Post by MightyMelvin » March 11th, 2010, 8:46 pm

Thanks! That problem is solved now.
I couldn't find out what caused it, but I think it has something to do with the extension of the scenario file.

New issue: game crashing since I replaced the "A simple campaign" map with my own map. I'm trying to figure that one out. Could it be that the map needs 3 players, and only 2 sides are defined?
Thanks for the working version, really appreciate it!
Melvin

Edit: I saved my map again and when I used that version, the game crashed. When I created a map consisting of only grass and 3 castles/keeps, the map works. Does that mean there is an issue with a certain type of terrain?

A map file does never need any number of defined sides, but the opposite might be the case - a scenario file can require a map to have certain starting positions to be set.

Well, it's almost certainly a problem with a terrain type. I'm gonna redraw the map step by step to find out what it is. And gonna check the bugs section for any bugs related to this.

#The following #define ... #enddef is a macro. Its contents get inserted at that point where it is called using {01_STORY}. It needs to be placed/defined/read by the engine before (above where) it is called. Macros are different from functions that you may have seen in other programming languages. The most important difference for you is that functions can be defined below the position where they are used (in the same file). Doing this with a macro will just cause it to not be found (not work). This thing depends on the "inclusion order" - to find out more about it read the preprocessor reference in the wml reference.

Ah, okay, you're welcome.
I actually used A Simple Campaign that has been created by OSJ, the author of Sceptre of Life, then Anonymissimus, the author of Dwarven Kingdom, updated it to correspond on BfW 1.7/1.8 in order to help new campaign creators. Recently, it is also one of my tools to help them.:smile:
