Help with WML for a particular scenario

Post by chak_abhi »

I am new to WML. I have just started creating a campaign. At present it has only 1 scenario.
Here are the scenario and the mains files:
The Scenario--
#text domain wesnoth-Rebellion_in_the_North
[scenario]
id=01_Unexpected_Attack
name=_ "Unexpected Attack"
map_data="{~add-ons/Rebellion_in_the_north/maps/01_Unexpected_Attack.map}"
{turns 30 26 22}
next_scenario=02_Defending_the_Capital

[story]
[part]
story=_"Tallin, a peasant by birth liberated the northlands from the brutal rule of the orcs. He established the Northern Alliance to govern the lands north of the Great River and south of the Longlier and maintain peace and prosperity in the region. Dwarven Doors became the capital of the Alliance.
background=portraits/Tallin.png
scale_background=no
[/part]
[part]
story=_"Humans, dwarves, elves, drakes, and even some tribes of orcs and trolls joined the Alliance. For many years the Alliance did good work. The war ravaged northlands were rebuilt. Dwarven Doors became a great trade centre. Humans from Wesnoth and northern earldoms, dwarves from Knalga and Kal Kartha, Elves from Wesmere and Lintanir forests, and orcs from the far north used to come here to buy and sell their wares.
background=images/Dwarven_Doors4.jpg
[/part]
[part]
story=_"The prosperity of the community of Dwarven Doors aroused much envy from afar. However apart from few isolated uprisings of groups of orcs there was no major trouble in the region. The orcish tribal capital of Rumyr was upgraded to a port for easy trade with the far north and the mermen, and even with far off lands. Lord Protector Howgarth III had ensured safety from the orcs of far north by signing a mutual friendship pact with orcish sovereign Kapou'e.
background=images/Dwarven_Doors1.jpg
[/part]
[part]
story=_"Vikash I succeeded Howgarth III as Lord Protector. He signed a mutual friendhip pact with Adred IV, king of Wesnoth. His rule was marked with peace and tranquility. He selected a young sergeant Krshan as his successor. But in his old age the northlands scented trouble once more. All of a sudden all communications with Krag Kumbh, son of Kapou'e and present orcish sovereign were cut off. Unrest was noted among the orc members of the Alliance also. So Krshan took to oversee all areas under the Alliance one by one, accompanied by his friend Aric.

What does this mean?How can I fix it?

Another question--how can I assign starting villages to each team?What does the numbers indicate?

It might have nothing to do with the error, but you forgot to terminate the last-breath-event for Tan Brok. And all story strings are unterminated also. Same at some others, you'd better check all messages again.

About your question: first number is the side for the villages, the oher one the radius around the start position, where villages are captured. If you only want to set single villages, use

Code: Select all

[side]
  ...
  [village]
    x=...
    y=...
  [/village]
[/side]
For other village macros, look up in data/core/macros/side-utils.cfg.

Thanks for the help. However when I try to load now it gives the same message followed by a message "Unknown scenario: 01_Unexpected_Attack. I can't find out where the problem is--the "mains" file or the scenario file.

for future reference, you should use the

 tags instead of the [quote] tags when posting code.

A thing that I noticed are your

Code: Select all

difficulties=EASY,NORMAL,DIFFICULT
You should replace it with

Code: Select all

difficulties=EASY,NORMAL,HARD
otherwise several macros, like TURNS, GOLD, INCOME won't work correctly: they expect to have difficult levels named exactly in this way.
Also, you can remove

Code: Select all

You could start by fixing all the unclosed quotes.

Still an error message comes--Unknown scenario:'01_Unexpected_Attack
I haven't yet found any mistakes which may lead to this situation.

Few things amaze me as much as how often people manage to do that. There's no reason whatsoever for it yet it's apparently done all the time.

I think it's because people who do that learn wml as their very first "programming language", not knowing if then else clauses, so they don't assume it needs to match, or are simply too sloppy.

Thanks for pointing this,it has been corrected. But still the same error message of "Unknown scenario" comes.
As a desperate resort I had even considered uploading my campaign as it is now on this forum so that a genuinely helpful person may correct it, but have decided against it as it may not be permitted, and I have already been rebuked by the forum moderators once in this forum itself!

The directory is "E:\Battle for Wesnoth\userdata\data\add-ons\Rebellion_in_the_North". It contains folders "scenarios", "images", "maps" & "Translations"(empty) and file "_main". The "maps" folder has the file "01_Unexpected_Attack.map". The "images" folder has sub folders "portraits", "story" and file "campaign_image".Thats all about it.
I am sure there is someone in the Wesnoth community who can help me out.

What? :annoyed:

No, that's exactly what you need to do if you want anyone to help you.

the problem is you still got some bugs in your scenario file, but wesnoth only shows them the first time you launch your campaign. all you get afterwards is the "unknown scenario" message. Unfortunately hitting F5 doesn't help. You need to delete the cache folder or resave your scenario file.

You have a spelling mistake in your map path:

Code: Select all

~add-ons/Rebellion_in_the_north/maps/01_Unexpected_Attack.map
should be

Code: Select all

~add-ons/Rebellion_in_the_North/maps/01_Unexpected_Attack.map
This causes the 'macro ... is missing at ...' error.

Edit: This, and the (almost unoticable) fact, that in your map name is a whitespace. Remove it, and it should work fine.
