You can call any wml tag from Lua should you need to.

You mean using wesnoth.wml_actions.allow_extra_recruit(cfg)? But I don't know how to make cfg object correctly.

Code: Select all

loacl cfg.extra_recruit = "Elvish Fighter"
Don't work.

Code: Select all

wesnoth.fire("modify_side", { side=i, flag="flags/flag-[1~4].png:250~RC(magenta>Rav_yellow)"})
(Used under for i,v in ipairs(wesnoth.sides) do)

i dont see how your code is related to his problem but you don't need wesnoth.fire here, you can call modify_side directly:

Code: Select all

wesnoth.wml_actions.modify_side {
    side=i,
    flag="flags/flag-[1~4].png:250~RC(magenta>Rav_yellow)",
}
generally you only need wesnoth.fire if the wml content might need variable substitution.

NOTE: im assuming here that i is an integer calculated by lua, if i is a taken from a wml variable/container its uit possible that it doe need variable substitution.
Scenario with Robots SP scenario (1.11/1.12), allows you to build your units with components, PYR No preperation turn 1.12 mp-mod that allows you to select your units immideately after the game begins.

Thanks gfgtdf. Now I know how to use it correctly. Problem fixed.

Code: Select all

local side = wesnoth.get_variable("side_number")

wesnoth.wml_actions.allow_extra_recruit {
	side = side,
	extra_recruit = "Elvish Fighter"
}

i'd replace wesnoth.get_variable("side_number") with wesnoth.current.side. I doubt that there is wml code that actually overwrites the side_number variable but it's possible.
