I bought this Battle Wesnoth way back, and I have played and finished almost all the campaigns and most add one. When this update hit, I was like "NO WAY, I can't believe it" I click update ASAP, and tried a new campaign but there was one problem I can't seem to move a unit, so I turned to tutorial but I still can't move a unit. I have played this game many times, even played the specific ios Wesnoth versio before they removed it from App Store, and I'm pretty sure I can navigate how to move a unit, please fix this issue. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for kind words!

In a new version, units are moved with swipes. Please try dragging them, and let us know if it answers the question.

Updating tutorial text is a known issue. It will take very long to get translations updated, though.

One more question: how do I teleport the silver mage? With swiping I can only teleport within the current screen. I am able to make limited use of the ability by performing several one-screen jumps (provided there is an abundance of villages) but it would be nice to reach the far end of a map at the cost of just one movement point.
P.S. Thanks for the port, other than this issue, all seems to work great.

Thank you!
I'm afraid that Silver Mage has a problem with the current interface.
The only thing you can do is to reduce zoom to 50% - it's a leftmost small button under minimap.
Registering it as an issue with iOS version.
