Anyone else have this problem? I play this on my phone while I'm sitting on the "throne", and I get so involved that I forget the passage of time, and by the time I get up, my legs have fallen asleep and I have to stumble out of the bathroom in agony.

Hi everyone, sorry to bother you but still impossible to install it on any of my tablet (and i get 3 différents model :( ).All the same problem can not download from sourceforge. Same on my S9, on my GF s8 too.

I have downloaded all files from sourceforge and tried to copy the files almost anywhere on any folders (the android/data/it.westnoth folder, the one Inside called files etc).

no luck so far.

Thank you for you help

What file did you download? And why from sourceforge? On https://www.wesnoth.org/ the link for android goes to google play, not to sourceforge.

As a workaround to package downloading problems you can get zip files manually from sourceforge and put them into /sdcard/. The game will then unpack those instead of downloading.

Huawei GR5 2017
Android 7.0
Port version 1.14

I have this problem too. I used the workaround recommend by Alessandro, and copied the .zip files for the game (namely, wesnoth_essential-1.14.5, wesnoth_campaigns-1.14.5, and wesnoth_music-1.14.5) to my phone's internal storage. When I select these 3 packages on the app in the "Select packages to download" section and hit "OK", I get this error:

Error download data from wesnoth_music-1.14.5.zip

What can I do to fix this?

You just need to click on the hill you want and then add the forest on top, or the other way around if it doesn't work. It should give you a hybrid terrain if it exists for that combination.
