Because this bug doesn't happen every time. In fact, I've never personally experienced it. I know it exists because others have reported it to me.

Hey, I've been playing through this campaign and its been quite fun so far.
I just thought I'd mention the one criticism I had. In the 2nd scenario the new monsters appearing after you kill the saurian are a quite annoying tomato surprise. Misris was down to very low hp at this stage, enough to be killed by the bat, and my units couldn't cover her because they'd just spent the turn attacking the saurian. I had to put a wolf in a very tempting position(he died) and even then I was lucky the bat didn't just go for Misris instead.
I'd suggest waiting a turn before the other units appear and after the saurian dies say something like; "We still need to be careful, there are more creatures in these areas."

Thanks, can you tell me what difficulty level you're playing on? I may add more goblins to the beginning, for easy games.

I've finished the campaign but when the epilogue starts the game crashes and shut down repently.

Was this in 1.8 or 1.9? Can you post a saved game file?

Here it is the .gz file. I'm playing in wesnoth 1.8.0. Another thing: the last scenario in easy difficult maybe is too easy.

I downloaded the file and it ran without crashing on my computer. I'm using a Mac and Wesnoth 1.8.6. What platform are you using: Windows/Mac/Linux? Maybe someone here with a similar OS will be willing to test too.

I'm playing it on linux. When I open it the screen charges (the blue bar) like normally and then it becomes dark and the games closes.

Perseo, thanks for reporting this.

It's not clear (to me) what is causing this crash. I can't reproduce the crash on my computer. Needless to say, crashes are taken very seriously by the developers, so I have posted a bug report here http://gna.org/bugs/index.php?18145
Another thing: the last scenario in easy difficult maybe is too easy.
Yes, by that point you probably have tons of gold and can recruit as many units you want. I'll give the other side more gold, and we'll see what that does.

EDIT: The latest news on this crashing bug is: it's been tested on trunk in Ubuntu using 1.9 version of the Swamplings. No bug was encountered.

Sorry for bumping the thread, but you should really be using the latest stable version (1.8.6 now) before playing add-ons for that branch, since you could stumble upon bugs that have in fact been fixed in later versions already.

Works for me (i.e. no crashing) using 1.8.6+svn (r49711).

Hey mate, is it possible to attach the campaign to this thread (or tell me to use the search option better)? I'd be very grateful since last time I tried to download it from the server, after about 15 mins I got "lost connection to the host" error. Thanks!
Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

You can try downloading the campaign from the add-ons server web interface, at http://addons.wesnoth.org/ , and then unpacking it in your add-ons directory. :wink:

Dunno, the search function is pretty simple. I usually just type the name of the campaign I'm looking for and it comes right up. Some users have had trouble downloading directly from the game, so try E_H's link if you need to.

I just meant that if you've already uploaded it somewhere, there surely would be a response like "search the forum yourself and you'll find it!" :wink:

Edit: I love it!!! I've played a couple of first scenarios and I'm totally amazed!

(bump)
I've just finished the final scenario and decided to give you a rather detailed feedback, since it was a great campaign and it deserves every minute of my time to be reviewed. I'll start with worse stuff, so I don't live a bitter aftertaste :wink:

Suicidal AI
This was mentioned before, but this really is an issue you should work on. It just makes it too easy...

Gold
You really have to do something with gold. Especially after that scenario where you get rewards for assassination. After that scenario you have ridiculous amount of gold to spend on very cheap units. I thought that soon there will be some great battle, but it never came. So I ended up with enormous amount of gold wasted because of carry over percentage. I was playing on medium but it felt like sandbox because I finished every scenario with hundreds of spare gold (that means dozens of units I could have recruited).

Wild animals
At first they were pretty fun, because they were free xp for my goblins but further in campaign they were simply annoying, because they only blocked my units posing no threat whatsoever to my army.

Merman ghost
That was one of those things that annoy player and don't add any real difficulty to the scenario. I discovered that merman with pillager and when she asked me for my leader I've made Clannie leave the battlefield and go back to that stupid merman only to find out it was a ghost who wanted to kill me. I had to load game from 8 turns before :(

Loot ability (bug?)
I've noticed that after you kill someone using loot attack you get an extra turn for your victorious unit. I'm not sure if it's planned or if it's simply a bug.

Dire wolf attacks
I have a silly question. Why does dire wolf unit have two blade attacks, one with lower damage (claws)? It seems like you didn't finish something- perhaps claws should have poison or impact?


That's about it. Overall, it was a great campaign, very enjoyable. Good plot, well made scenarios. It just had this something that makes a campaign special. Very, very, VERY good job! ^_^

One more thing: I've noticed that you lack sprites. Would it be possible to let me try and make some? I've never done it before and because of summer break I have lots of time. Cheers! :)
