Ugh! Now that's embarassing :oops: Thanks for quickly pointing that out Mist.

Anyhow, I am uploading a patch on the server right now, but I always have problems with it so it takes me a couple hours sometimes. In the meantime, here is a zip file with the Woodsman files it it. Just put the contents of the images and units folders that are in the zip, into the corresponding files in the Northern Rebirth directory.

Sorry about that...

Edit: Forgot the zip... no comment.

One of the custom outlaws (shadow mage IIRC) had it as a melee attack.

I've no clue, but the attack icon is in your images folder.

I see, but I am not quite sure when exactally I deleated that - but it isn't there anymore - not as of version 1.18.6, which I am still struggling to put on the server after the... 13th time... :evil:

Version 1.18.6 is FINALLY on the server, after the 21st attempt :-S Anyhow, just added the Woodsman to the package so that the campaign isn't broken anymore. Thanks agian to Mist for pointing out this bug so quickly :-)

Main character names are not displayed on wesnoth 1.3.4

Post by hagabaka » July 1st, 2007, 1:56 am

When playing Northern Rebirth on wesnoth 1.3.4, I find that characters which have set names in the campaign, such as Tallin, Camerin, Krash, Rakshas, don't have their names displayed in the game. In the side panel, the place for unit name is empty. In their speech boxes, the speaker is just displayed as their unit type, such as "Halbardier: Defy you? Who are you, what do you want?" This doesn't happen with units which I recruited.

[EDIT: I found out the cause, see next post]

This happens even when I start the campaign from the beginning, on 1.3.4. It doesn't happen on 1.2.5.

Another problem is that at the beginning of Old Friend, when Tallin's unit type is supposed to change, it doesn't happen. I'm attaching my save file for beginning of that scenario.

[UPDATE: zookeeper found out that the cfg for the Halberdier unit in the mainline had a typo and caused this second problem. He'll fix it.]

missing user_description

Post by hagabaka » July 1st, 2007, 4:01 am

It looks like the cause for missing names is because the campaign doesn't set user_description, in addition to description. This is from the campaign Two Brothers included in 1.3.4:

Code: Select all

                [unit]
                        description=Bjarn
                        user_description= _ "Bjarn"
                        unrenamable=yes
                        type=Red Mage
                        profile=bjarn.png
                        side=1
                        {IS_HERO}
                        x=31
                        y=21
                [/unit]
And I remember reading on IRC that user_description is the name presented to users, while description can be used as an internal key.

After I put in the user_descriptions in the save file, the names are displayed correctly now. The typechange thing still doesn't work though...

Hi Hagabaka

Yeah, Zookeeper notified me about that issue, but thanks for pointing it out anyway. I'll also check into the typechange thing (again - that whole piece of wml is one big headache!). Anyhow, it'll get fixed, no worries.

Also - on Zookeeper's suggestion, since this campaign is now mainline - and much of the issues discussed in this tread are now outdated - I think it is time we started a new thread for this campaign. Hence, I request that the mods Lock this one - and please direct further bug reports/criticizms/comments and so on to this thread:
