Post by NurlorVoronwe »

Do you have any non-ascii characters (non-english) in your windows login name and/or the path where Wesnoth is and/or looks for maps?

The accent is non-ascii. You've just run into bug #13926 [Gna.org]. (or at least the underlying cause)

There should be a switch to make wesnoth save your files in a different directory, to work around this bug.

Right-click the shortcut you're using to start wesnoth, then, add to the end of it: (with a space prepended)

Code: Select all

--config-dir C:/some/directory/without/spaces/or/special/characters
You will have to copy your userdata files to that directory though, as you've just relocated it.

I thought somebody told me this bug was corrected in 1.9, but it still exists with 1.9.13: spaces are not allowed in the path.

It's probably fixed on 1.9.4+. Plus 1.9.3 is like...horribly outdated. We're in 1.9.13 now ;) hehehehe

I am sorry, it was a typo: with 1.9.13 I can't have a space in the path.

I just followed the link to gnu.org that AI provided above, and it looks the editor and the main game use completely different file services, and none of them is good enough (at least that is my interpretation of the bugzilla's debate, I am a bit confused by it) and so the bug handling has been postponed to 1.10.
