Hmm, yes it seems like that map is missing a starting location for side 1... never finished confrontation myself.

Give me a minute to fix it.

EDIT: Okay, I just edited the map and committed the fix. Haven't tested it, but it *should* work.

Yes, you have to download from sourceforge again, as that's where I updated it. You'll then have to start from either the start-of-scenario save or the last autosave of the previous one.

Unfortunately though I'm about the closest thing to a maintainer The Dark Hordes has, I don't have its pbl file. (well, along with the rest of the people on wesnoth-umc-dev)

Yessssss, I found it!

Thank you, AI. It is usually this kind of minor stuff that puts beginners through a lot of s***, effectively ruining gameplay.

Are you also the maintainer of The Dark Hordes? Although there is still room for improvement I really like the campaign up til now.

One more question: so that automatically means that when you search your file system, all hidden files and directories are skipped?

EDIT: I'm afraid it's still not working. I deleted the file "The_Dark_Hordes.cfg" and renamed the old dark hordes directory to put the new one in its place, but the error I'm getting is "ERROR In-gameplay error: unclear unit type 'Initiate' ".

(translated from Japanese)

Also, the pictogram for the dark hordes in the campaign selection window appears to have changed.

Ah, sorry, the SVN version is for trunk (the 1.5 line) and though the scenarios are (mostly) fine, the unit definitions aren't compatible.

I'll look into creating a backport.

EDIT: Backport is now working, though some features (like names and descriptions) are still missing. The latest version can always be downloaded from svn.

It worked fine here.

I'll give it some more testing when I get the time.

Allright AI, I'll try that later. Thanks again.

So are you the developer of the Dark Hordes?

Just a maintainer, I didn't write the thing or anything. Just patched it up to work with recent versions.

Here's a link to the credits file.

I tried again and it worked again.

Can you see if it still occurs and if it does, save the game and attach the save here?

@AI: I offered my help in maintaining this campaign before the forums crash but never got a reply. I would still be willing to contribute something every now and then, if I can and may.
