This is not about S1, but I think this thread is suitable for posting a HTTT bug report.

In scenario 15, The Lost General.

Code: Select all

        [message]
            x,y=6,23
            message= _ "I am of the merfolk, dweller of the vast oceans! Do not ask me what I am doing in a cave. My lord can be somewhat eccentric. We are fighting at the side of your fellow cave-dwellers to drive back the orcs and trolls."
        [/message]
        [message]
            speaker=Ulfdain
            # wmllint: directory spelling mer-mahn
            message= _ "(sniffs) A mer-mahn. Never heard of it. I doubt yer as tasty as my friends here."
        [/message]
First message says "merfork", but second message says as if Ulfdain heard the word as "merman", not "merfolk". Something is strange.
And, "merfolk" in first message was changed from "merman.

Yeah, you're right. I'll untangle that somehow.

Hello,
I would like to report a bug,

In scenario Sceptre of Fire, I've choosen Li'sar to take the sceptre, but on the next scenario, Konrad is the one who wield the sceptre.

Could anyone tell me how to fix it?
Only hope and faith can save us.

It was a bug in 1.13.6. It's been fixed in newer versions, but after updating you'll need to replay from the beginning of the SoF scenario for it to work right. Or I can probably directly hotfix a savefile of your choosing, if you want.

Could we please make Haldiels death (the loyal Horseman you get in scenario 2) a losing condition, at least for a couple scenarios? He has to live long enough to have children, as Deoran, The hero of the Southguard. And a dead Haldiel can hardly be the grandfather of Deoran, nor would he be as much remembered.

Why can't he already have children when he joins the player's team?

One argument would be that he seems to be quite young. But that's not for certain, which is why I added, that he would hardly be remembered as much if he perished early in the campaign. Konrad has a lot of people who aided him and who are loyal, why would Hadiel be special or even be remembered?
And it seems to be a waste to draw a connection to a seemingly insignificant soldier in Konrads army, when you can easly make him more than that.
Maybe not make it necessary for him to survive, but recall him automatically (except underground?). Make him memorable.
That's pretty much my 'strongest' point. If you say that it's important to have been part of Konrads army, then there are a looooooot of important people at the end of the campaign.

I've reread the Intro of TSG and Deoran is described as a young man, when it's the 9th year of Konrads rule (at least 15(?) years old but not much more).
Any idea how many months/years HttT spans?

Just because Haldiel is mentioned in passing in TSG's intro doesn't mean he should be special or particularly memorable in HttT. Deoran being Haldiel's grandson is just a little bit of connecting tissue between different storylines, and no one would miss if it had never been there in the first place.

I have always considered the last scenario (The Battle for Wesnoth) to be a spoilsport at the end of this epic campaign. You just have to burrow down in a small area creating a wall of tough units and see your painstaking efforts going down the drain in front of a load of enemy veterans. I have created an alternative map and code for this scenario which you can try if you want. Mind you, this one might probably be harder than the one being replaced, but at least you have to apply your brains instead of cowering down like rats all along. And there will be no scope for an assassination mission, and no one should be foolish enough to try it!

(7) What, if any, are changes you would have made to the scenario to make it more fun?
Already mentioned it but I'll repeat: the earthquake should come EITHER at 20 turn mark OR after you defeat the trollorc leader WHICHEVER COMES FIRST. Maybe add some more clues as to the second entrance to the undead.
There's a hint already: if you sent any units at all down the southern corridor (from the starting keep) one of them would have said There is a big cave-in south of here. Personally, I discovered the undead this way on my very first playthrough, a few turns into the scenario.

That's not to say we can't add more hints, in the case that the player has defeated the trolls (either all their units, or just the leader) before discovering the undead - if you have specific suggestions could you post them here please? (This thread is for feedback, not for design) We could do, say, an extra line of dialog, or we could end the scenario there and then but have Lionel attack you from behind in a future scenario...
As per request I conjured some specific suggestions:

Like I said in the original thread, I don't remember the "hint". I missed it somehow.
I'd say a better hint would be a dialogue between a unit that triggers the event and Konrad (with the additional benefit that you wouldn't be able accidentally skip the whole thing and not notice):
U: The south wall looks like a cave-in... Wait, did you hear that?
K: No, what?
U: I thought I heard strange muffled sounds coming from behind.
K: ...
(Random Dwarf (if available): You brave surface folk! Scared so easily by any little noise in the tunnels!)
U: Yes, forget it, must have been my imagination.

Then when passing by the lake:
U: Hmm... that sound again...
K: Are you certain it's not the sound of water in the lake?
U: ...

Idea for after defeating the Troll leader before discovering undead (leader is better than all units because the mission objective says destroy enemy leaders)
Konrad: That's it! We've liberated these caves from Trolls and Orcs! Their leader is dead and the Dwarves can pick up the stragglers. We can continue on to find the Sceptre...
Delfador: Not so fast, Konrad. I still sense a dark presence close to us... to the south-east.
Konrad: But we have explored these passages thoroughly, there's nothing here!
Kalenz: Perhaps you want us to double-check in case we have missed something?

Now you could give the player the option to go on (and have Lionel attack you from behind, I like that idea, just make sure that when he attacks he says something that will make the players aware / remind them that they skipped him in this scenario), or stay.

In this version you could even reconsider if the automatic "earthquake" is even necessary but rather leave the player to either discover Lionel manually or have him attack in the next scenario.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I like the idea of hearing muffled sounds behind the cave-in, that adds atmosphere. (Even better if we actually play some appropriate sound file!)

The dialogs would be a bit tricky, though, because there are so many variables: Did any units go to the southern corridor? Was Konrad the first unit going down that corridor? Has Konrad recruited any dwarves at all? Have any allied dwarves survived? It's not insurmountable, but it's going to need some thought. (Would you like to try putting together a pull request?)

I also like the idea of Delfador "sensing a dark presence". We may even be able to have some Delfador say something to that effect at the start of the scenario? For example:

On side 1 turn 3 - before the cave-in is opened:

if have a White Mage or a lvl3 or lvl4 mage: (see also comments in S17 about choice of mage speaker there)
mage: Prince Konrad, Delfador, I have a great sense of unease about this place. Might there be undead ahead? Has Lord Relgorn spoken of undead presence in these caves?
Konrad: He has not.
Delfador: We must proceed with caution, Konrad. If not undead, something equally foul must be ahead of us.
otherwise:
Delfador: Kalenz, I have a great sense of unease about this place. Might there be undead ahead? Lord Relgorn spoke of none.
Kalenz: I sense it too, Delfador, but it is vague, distorted… and yet powerful. I am uncertain. Let us proceed with caution.

Designing the decision tree is probably a lot harder than coding it.
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.

I've sent a PR for another event in that scenario: #4367
