Known Issues
General bugs:
  • OneDrive can interfere with Wesnoth’s user config/data directory set-up, leading to all kinds of different manifestations of the issue. There’s no fix available yet. The recommendation for the time being is to avoid syncing the Wesnoth user directory with OneDrive.
General bugs:
  • Preprocessor errors corrupt cache (issue #1924). If this happens you have to wipe your cache. That can be done in Preferences → Cache.

Is it this issue? If not, you're going to need to provide more details of what the problem is.

What did they change in the south guard exactly?

There's some info in the changelog in the first post of this thread. I haven't played TSG since it was revised so I don't know more than that.

The philosphy of the campaign (TSG) was kept, along with the main players. A scene was dropped. A lot of the dialog was rewritten to be more clear and better tell the story. This is a new-player campaign. If it's been a while since you last played it, and you only vaguely recall the plot-line, you probably won't notice much of a change..
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.

Hi Guys

New to the forum but have been playing Wesnorth for years. I have been trying to download 1.14.6 but it seems as if the SourceForge site is down? Ive tried links through the Wesnorth website and other external sites and keep getting the same error:


This site can’t provide a secure connection sourceforge.net sent an invalid response.
Try running Windows Network Diagnostics.
ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

Can anyone confirm if the links are working? If so it may be an issue on my end.

Thanks for your help!

It works for me currently, at least. Maybe try with a different browser?

Steam version passed to 1.14.7, but no communication of download off-steam nowhere for now. Was the steam update a mistake maybe ?

No, it is a new version. However, for better or worse, the current approach to doing releases is to push it out on Steam first then update everywhere else.

From a user perspective I find that very confusing.

Would it not be better to sync-release all at the same time + announcement?

Pushing the Steam update is a lot more convenient than our external release process. I figure it's better to get the update to our Steam players quickly that holding off waiting for us to deal with all the boilerplate of the external release.

So I suppose the right place to ask is here... for those of us who depend on other packagers who still have 1.14.5 as their latest version, do you know whether those packagers will skip directly to 1.14.7, or will they first upload to 1.14.16 and then to 1.14.7?
