All translation files still exist, the problem is getting wesnoth to read them properly.

Take a look here, it's full of MO files, but they seem to be completely ignored by wesnoth. (and by the script that sends them to berlios)

I'm looking for a way to save these old translations, if possible...

If the POs are lost, you can use msgunfmt(1) to make a basic set by uncompiling the MOs. You'll lose all metadata (comments) that way, though. But it can give you an idea of what was there, I guess.

The POs are still on wescamp in a different directory, I'll ask torangan to fix it.

Hi! I finished playing the dark hordes on normal difficulty on battle for wesnoth 1.5.8

I wanted to give some feedback related to the level of the swamp (where you can only recruit Walking Corpses).

First, the level tells you to go where the book is, and while I understood where I should go, I think that putting an actual book item rather than an hex of forests would be a better indication of where you should look for.

Second, the castle its really huge, allowing you to recruit a ton of corpses I didn't had a problem on medium, don't know how will be on hard (I entered the level with like 1000+ gold)

Third, mass recruiting of walking corpses takes a while (especially 2 full castle recruits), since you cannot recruit different units, this is a good place to inform as a *note of autor: You can repeat recruit with "Control + R + Enter"* in order to make the initial recruit faster for the user.

Thank you for the campaign.

New release! The first TDH release for the 1.6 series, version 0.6.1 is now on the 1.6 add-on server and on sourceforge.

The changes were mainly graphical, the recolours for the Gwiti's unit line by Orcish Shyde were finished and all portraits were transparentized.

I hope I reanimate The Dark Hordes by this act of necromancy(or,alternativly,will it be actualized to 1.8?)
After far too long an absence, I have returned.

Sorry dude, posting in a year-old topic isn't gonna get anyone workin' on this. If you like the campaign so much, why not finish/update/otherwise work on the campaign yourself? Starting the resurrection of the campaign yourself is really the only way anyone else is gonna bother working on it. If you'd really like to see this campaign finished/updated for 1.8, my advice is to learn WML if you haven't, and start working on finishing it yourself and post what you accomplish. That's honestly the only way anything's gonna happen to this add-on, unless a minor major miracle occurs.

I think it's abandoned. If you want it finished, someone will have to take over.

I'm working on it in wesnoth-umc-dev. I'm planning to release a new version for the 1.9 branch before 1.9.0 is out. (yes, I'm completely ignoring 1.8)

Well, so much for that plan. I think I can still make it before 1.9.4 though. (done up to scenario 11, scenario 12 still needs balancing and AI work)
