I have a Samsung galaxy s6 running Android 7.0 and recently it's developed a problem, now whenever I try to access local play it tells me there's an "unterminated quoted string at <unknown>:5" and goes back to main menu.
I currently have version 1.12.6-45
Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall from scratch? If this does not work, you can try the 1.13.8 release from my previous post.

Thanks a lot for a new version. 1.13.8 works faster for me and is stable overall.

Minor issue I have is the resolution. On my FullHD phone I am used to setting Wesnoth to 800x450 for better UI visibility in startup options and it works fine. In new version however, such a setting puts black bars on both sides and game remains 4:3 with probably 800x600. Next 16:9 ratio step at 960x540 still has bars but much narrower and its quite ok. Higher resolutions work fine but I cant see much of the UI then.

Hey, just FYI, BFW appeared on Pocket Tactics: ... n-android/

I just left a comment saying what is the difference between Alep's version and the previous one, as they seemed to be confused.

Hey, I'd like to ask a quick question. Could you make it so that the in game cursor follows an external mouse without the need to hold down left click? This would make the experience much better and the controls whilst using an external mouse + Keyboard on your device much easier and actually function correctly! Thanks for considering this!

Battle for Wesnoth Not Working on Android Oreo

Post by garryjoshi » January 13th, 2018, 12:33 pm

Hi, I've been playing the WesNorth game on my Note 8 for a while now. It was running just smooth on Android Nougat however today I received the Android Oreo update and now whenever I am trying to open the game it is only displaying a white blank screen at the startup. Please help!!

Update: I have managed to resolve this error. Must be some compatibility issue or similar. What I did was uninstalled the game > restarted my phone > reinstalled it and there you go!!! The game is working just smooth once again <3

Hi everyone,

Like i posted on the Ideas section, I made a prototype of a companion app.

The purpose of the app is to load a saved game, to show all the units in the game and the informations about them and to write some notes (general note or directly on the characters) that can be seen as strategic notes (for example, if you’re far from pc and you want to write a reminder for when you’ll use the game)

IT’S A PROTOTYPE AND A CLASS ASSIGNMENT so it can have bugs or be incomplete: the aim of the project is to evaluate the major functionalities and the usability of the app.

In the app there are 2 fixed save games of 2 scenarios of the first campaign, and the map is only a screenshot of the game (again, it’s a prototype). The app doesn’t save the state so when you close the app all the changes willl be deleted.

I would appreciate it very much if you could try the app and answer a few questions, below there is the link where you can download the apk and the link for the questionnaire. Before answering the questions you will be asked to achieve some simple goals.

link apk (only for Android >= 5.0) ... paZr5oDHhZ

link questionnaire:

If you want you can make a video of you using the app, and send it to my e-mail:

Thanks for the help!

I have a problem. When I open the app it starts properly, I can see downloading setting etc. but when I click "start game" it crash. What is intresting game ran well previously, but I thought that always appearing downloading sreen is a bug, so I reinstalled it and then the crush problem has started. I'm using Xiaomi redmi note 4, Android 7.0
