The dark hordes

Post by pihlstrom »

At the end of "Mages and Elves" I cannot go to the next scenario.I have the following sentence:Load game failed:Invalid starting position(36,1) for the leader of side2.
Could I fix it correcting the file?

The version currently on the campaign server a very old version run through an automated tool to get it up to date (wmllint), this didn't catch everything though, causing (among other things) your problem.

A (mostly) working version can be downloaded off wesnoth-umc-dev here.

Hmmm ... I have that too, and downloaded the package you suggested.

But then, how can I repair it?

Thanks

Well, you go to userdata/data/campaigns, remove the directory (and possibly the file) named The_Dark_Hordes, then extract the archive there. (use 7-zip if you don't already have something that can extract tar.gz)

Wow, thanks for your swift reply.

This sounds really silly, but I don't seem to have any directory named 'userdata'. Neither can I find a directory The_Dark_Hordes.I am quite new to Linux and have a ubuntu version. I search my whole filesystem and cannot find it, the unzipping part I understand though.

And I did find /usr/share/wesnoth/data/campaigns


So maybe I am missing something, or overlooking something obvious.

If you have any suggestions, please.

Thanks,

Daan

I have downloaded "HD" as you told me in your mail.I think I have done it correctly(I have a Mac).Now the sentence is :unknown scenario"The tower"???
I have tried also to remake the campaign from the beginning and obtain the same sentence.

...so then I reinstalled my OS, rebuilt wesnoth and redownloaded the Add-on "the Dark Hordes"

And still, nowhere on my file system, there is a folder ' the dark hordes' (or anything like it). Even though I'm sure I downloaded and even played it (it looks slightly different in Wesnoth though: "The Dark Hordes 1" )

Anything brilliant anyone??? I can't tie a rope to this anymore!

$HOME is your home directory, for me that's /home/ai
That means my 'userdata' is /home/ai/.wesnoth
Note the period, it means the directory is hidden.
So, the directory you want to look for is /home/ai/.wesnoth/data/campaigns (with the 'ai' part changed to your username)

That's the broken version from the add-on server. Get the one off svn and replace it.
