Wesnoth 1.14 on Android

Post by alep » June 10th, 2018, 9:49 am

Hello everybody.

I'm a little late, but BfW 1.14 is now available on android.

The apk is already available on sourceforge here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/wesnot ... oid/files/

Google play app is coming up in the next days.
Right now 1.14.1 is available, 1.14.3 upgrade will be available soon.

Before asking for help here please make sure you checked the FAQ page.

If you are reporting a problem, please provide the following information:

- what model is your device
- what version of Android it is running
- which version of my port you are running
- complete description of problem you’re having

It won't take long.
Anyway, google play app is now available here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... wesnoth114

This is a brand new application, so if you have 1.12 installed on your phone don't expect it to upgrade automatically. You'll need to install it manually (and also, you can keep both 1.12 and 1.14 installed if you have enough free space).
In the store the 1.12 app has been renamed to "Battle for Wesnoth LEGACY". The 1.10 app has been removed from the store (but it's still available on sourceforge).

I've noticed that on the website the android download link has been added, pointing to 1.12 app. Thank you for that, but now can somebody please update the link moving it to the 1.14 application?

Thank you, I already played yesterday some android Wesnoth, not sure of version, but it's playable. Might been better with touch pointer I guess, but it's probably a matter of time to get used to.. I never meant to seriously be playing wesnoth on adroid, only when i have my tablet and not at home and need to wait for something for many hours :D Do developers have plans to change mouse pointer behavior in any future? just curious

Stickied, the previous 1.12 thread is here. Also I assume the opening post should have some of the same info as the 1.12 support thread.

> 1.14.2 upgrade will be available soon.

as 1.14.3 was already tagged it might make sense to skip 1.14.2 in particular as it has some known regressions from 1.14.1 like the statistics bug and the negative hp bug.
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.

Ok, yes, I'll go for 1.14.3 which, btw, is already out. Thanks for the info.

I get an Error trying to install the core files. It says "Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream".
Any idea what I can do about that?

EDIT: I think it was an incomplete package download. After a redownload everything worked fine. :)

Hi
I downloaded the new version from the play store, when I try to open the app, it crashes.
I have a samsung galaxy s 4gb
The legacy Version worked perfectly, just the 1.14 version crashes

There is no debug to be sent - the package downloader/intro screen doesn't show up. I just click the icon and it does nothing. I'd have asked how to find a debug message if I crashed after downloading all packages but unfortunately that isn't the case.
