Can't recruit in LoW-Scenario 1 in Planning Mode [1.11.10]

Post by wesnothi1 » March 1st, 2014, 4:24 pm

I am unable to recruit any units in turn 1 of the first scenario 'The Uprooting' in the campaign Legend of Wesmere (single-player mode) when planning mode is enabled. The walkthrough mentions that recruitment is possible.

Is this a bug, or is the walkthrough out of sync with the latest version of the scenario?

UPDATE[March 2, 2014]: I tried again with latest git sources. It seems that the recruitment is not possible when planning mode is enabled. If planning mode is disabled, units can be recruited.

Game version and other relevant details are as below:
  1. Battle for Wesnoth version (as shown in lower left corner of the main screen): 1.11.10+dev (38e6ee6-Clean)
  2. Operating system: Fedora 20 x86_64
  3. Steps to reproduce:
    1. Run Battle for Wesnoth. Start Legend of Wesmere as a single-player campaign with Normal difficulty.
    2. After the initial cutscene, try to recruit units on any vacant hex in Kalenz's fortress with planning mode enabled.
  4. Temporary workaround: Disable planning mode while recruiting
EDIT[March 2, 2014]: Corrected the version number, Updated description to include planning mode.

I don't have your version, but I just tried in 1.10.6 and 1.11.10 on Mac OS 10.8.5, and was able to recruit both times.

I wrote the wrong version number. I've updated the original post. Sorry for the inconvenience. I will pull the latest code from the git repository, rebuild and try again.

UPDATE[March 2, 2014]: I tried again with the latest build. It seems the problem I described occurs when planning mode is enabled. Original post updated accordingly.

Thanks a bunch for the workaround, wesnothi1!

I spent 3 hours failing to figure out a strategy to beat the scenario without recruiting anyone. Then I stumbled upon this post and minutes later it was done with. It really helped!

(version 1.10.7)
