Did the beta version move to 1.15 exclusively or will it update for both 1.14 and 1.15?
You can try to pm him, but IDK that Dugi hasn't been online too long.
Sorry for my english, I'm not english native.
Regards, Swampy.

(Already mastered the LotI as 4 times until the end, so wanna me to play it again!?)

It would be sad if LotI was not ported to 1.15

I am having an issue in which the precious eagle cactus fruit is disappearing between levels. From what I can see sometimes the unit keeps the heal 40 until you change the unit's equipment and others it loses it immediately. ? Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be happening? The most recent instance was when I moved it from a unit to one of the loyal ones in Thirst for Adventures and it has disappeared in Bandits.

I am back.

Sorry for the delay guys, I wanted to finish one algorithm without shifting to other tasks and it was just so damn convoluted, nigh impossible to even remember in its entirety and extremely sensitive to do every detail right. It took me the whole summer and most of autumn. But it's finally working and passed all tests I could imagine. I apologise for the long absence, I always thought I could finish it in a couple of weeks, but new problems kept on appearing on and on.

I am currently at the Level Escape in Chapter 5 but when I want to start the szenario an error instantly pops up and I have lost the scenario.
Sorry, this error message is absolutely useless. This error is a consequence of a wide variety of possible errors. I need a save file (named LotI1-Escape.gz). I have been reported this message a few times, but I have not managed to figure it out yet, it doesn't even seem to be in the scenario itself.

The first part (chapters 1 to 5) is finished. Re-read by another player would be usable.

Regarding the time needed to complete the work, my first estimates were based on playable scenarii in 1 to 2 hours. Currently some of them need 10 to 12 hours, so the forecasts were obviously optimistic. ;)
Can you post it? My skills at French might need a revision. Reading things that aren't exciting are a good way to lull myself to sleep which comes handy quite often.

I encounter some small problems with the 3 'domains' used. I retrieved all the texts in the .pot, but I can not make them coexist in the game. Some texts from the domain wesnoth-units do not appear, even though they have been translated.
I am not sure how does the German translator deal with this, but using the wesnoth-units domain is probably a mistake from my side.

I played all main-campaigns in an LP on YoutTube and then started to dig in some of the Add-On campaigns cause i needed more of this game (also people asked for more - at least the 3 that watch my Wesnoth videos :p ) - and i have to say: This is by far the best Wesnoth Campaign I have played till now! At first i though "200 Scenarios?! Man this will get boring really fast..." - I've never been more wrong in my life, the Items, the RPG-Skill system for units, the changing quest goals, the kinda open world parts, the different scenario events like the snow storm and of course the outstanding story even got me to do two specials (a 3rd is coming up as soon as i have time for it) to summarize the story for new people, and have a more epic fight against Uria in the last special ^^
[...]
(If you want you can easily find me with my name on YouTube - if you want - but all i do is in German (thx to the people that translated this campaign btw) - so i don't post a link here, specials are the Episode #145[0] and #327[182]. I am not the best Wesnoth player around, so have mercy for my mistakes and my heavy use of "turn back to round X" :p )
This is a pleasure to read. I am sorry for not reacting earlier. I wanted to see some of those videos you've made (I actually have learned some German in the last few years), but I have not found them. I have found your playlist, but I could not find any related episodes.

It might be a bug tho that it can wear armor as the Spectre can't wear any kind of armor, but the Reaper can. (But without the ability to wear armor the Reaper unit might get useless)
It is a bug. It shouldn't be able to equip armour. It is so powerful because its advancements are stronger than usual in order to balance out its inability to equip some item types. In the absence of this inability, you get exactly this.

I am not going to fix this bug because a rework much better inventory UI was almost complete before I paused.

Something funny happened for me
in the ice cave the dwarf leader died, but the scenario just continued normally without him
Fixed in the github version.

Most Chapters, S1
Is it intended that the 'Name of Chapter + quote' background stays the same for the whole storytext? It looks out of place.
Yes, but I can change it if it looks too out of place.

Hey, love LotI, but stuck in Kingslayer, keep getting bug saying ‘Fsiled yo show a dialogue, which doesn’t fit on the screen’, anyway past this?
It might be a problem with the iOS port that often has these bugs. Can you please tell me what says the last message before the problem happens?

During my pause, I have switched from Android to iPhone, so I might be able to test it out. I wonder if I can get the port's author to hand me a free copy.

There is a bug when trying to start the scenario for the Bitter Swamps.
Something along the lines of the canvas is too short.
I'm running wesnoth off of the Steam shop.
You are probably playing it on a device with an unexpectedly small screen. Any idea what is the last message before it happens?

At first, I was pretty apprehensive about the item system and everything, but after getting the hang of it I have come to really enjoy the game.
Power creep is a thing, but I can just challenge myself. Basically, I can send my leaders out alone and just wreak havoc. Beezlebu(g) has been squashed a few times.
Try to increase the difficulty. It doesn't only make enemies more numerous, it makes enemy units stronger, adds new properties to some enemy leaders, makes your items weaker (sometimes significantly) and some other things. Easy is really only for players wanting to play through the story and not bothering much with such things as challenges.

Those inner parts are a bit dissapointment for me, I was looking forward for metting with flies. They are beutifully annoying on one hand and amazing for itemgatherings. I wanted to suggest to add into the pandemonium flies and on hard difficulty also black souls demon, as they are the most dangerous thing so far.
I am not sure if many would appreciate that. Doing it would be easy, though.

And after reading your name... NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN!
Delicius169 wrote:

Also I wanted to suggest how about making different kind of flies? With some kind of percent-chance to appear instead of average one.

Like
Fireflies - abillity to incinerate enemy, at least 20% fire penetration
Moonflies - abillity to lower enemy resitance for 1% per hit
swampflies- abillity Marsh fever, somekind of disease, which cannot be cured, but will stop itself after few turns, lowering hitpoints by 8hp per turn..
I guess I could. I haven't really though of the uniformity-related consequences of having lots of flies in some scenarios.

Also I am thinking about legacy of freezing north (iceberg), I find it quite boring, and somehow I have a feeling it is the one legacy mostly meele oriented (the others are more useable for everyone.
I had no intention to make legacies usable for every unit. But if you think this one stands out in overspecialisation, we might discuss a small overhaul.

In theory, it should be available on both versions once I do the necessary stuff to get it running on wesnoth 1.15 (I have never even seen 1.15) and figure out how to edit the script that uploads it (as I am not the guy who created it).

That looks quite difficult to replicate. Do you happen to have a save file where the ability works and the scenario can be immediately finished to proceed into one where it breaks?

Error message preventing me from continuing campaign

Post by PlasmaDragoon »

I’ve encountered a error message in legend of the invincibles campaign part 1, where when I kill a unit with Delly I get this error message: failed to show dialog, which doesn’t fit on screen.

It told me when reporting this bug I needed to type this out:

/Users/vic/src/wesnoth/wesnoth_ios/battleforwesnoth/battleforwesnoth/gui/widgets/window.cpp:947 in function ‘layout’ found the following problem: Failed to size window; wanted size 568,363 available size 568,320 screen size 568,320.

Since the bug report above seems related to the custom dialogs used in LotI, I merged it with the LotI topic.

How come that your screen size is 568x320?

If you feel generous, maybe you could provide a save file where it can be replicated.

Because that's the logical resolution available in iPhones with 4-inch screens. You can check this cheatsheet: https://kapeli.com/cheat_sheets/iOS_Des ... ents/index

Hm, so my iPhone's logical resolution is also 568x320. This is awkward.

However, this means the problem is a problem of the iOS port. I was trying to remove an issue causing this problem later in campaign and I have fixed it... but I broke it completely iPhone SE.

(and please don't laugh at me for having an iPhone)

You can't if you don't jailbreak it. But it won't be necessary, Elvish_Hunter gave me enough information.

I recently started with this campaign and during my play (and testing) I have a question regarding boss item drop.
I noticed that only after 4th scenario "Paradise lost", dropped item from bosses start to be given to players (you receive the dialog that it was placed into your storage). I was checking the scenarios and tried to edit them a little, but I was unsuccessful to figure out what might cause this.
I also searched this thread, but I couldn't find any reports about that. (playing on wesnoth 1.14.9 and campaign is 3.2.4d) Is this maybe know issue? (so far noticed this on "The Assassination" and "Banished")

The item code is partially rewritten and finishing the rewrite should remove the issue. I can't give an exact timeline.

Hi @Dugi,
It seems that in the latest version of LotI (github), there is something wrong with Elvish Assassin's execution attack, it doesn't change when the normal attack changes, e.g. equipping a new bow doesn't make execution attack stronger.

You might have found the "Main"-Playlist containing all default wesnoth campaigns, this is the one for Add-On campaigns: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... vAt5Y89lt1 "Legende der Unbesiegbaren" is from #033 to #359 (It's HUGE) with specials on #145 (Summary of Part 1) and #327 ("Am Abgrund der Welten", this Episode does not have a number in it's title. First half of the Video is a summary of Part 2, the other half is the Bossfight with all dialogs voiced by me and some friends) The first number in the title is the number of the Video in the Playlist, the number in the brackets "[]" are are telling you what episode of the current campaign it is.
You might see in these videos how strong a reaper with everything i got gets xD - i loved it ^^
