Thanks for trying my add-on and leaving feedback. :)

Yeah, this is a consequence of how I have to provide the random maps for each scenario. It wasn't as bad before I added the fixed map set. Nothing I can really do about it in 1.12 short of ripping out the fixed map set. I'll take another look at this when I start updating Random Campaign for the 1.13/1.14 cycle.

When I load the saved game, there is a bug.
Game say "ON_DIFFICULTY4" is missing.
...
EDIT : the loading bug happens only when loading a save from the inside game.
But it's possible to load a game without bug in starting multiplayer screen !
This is due to the fact that in Wesnoth 1.12, the load game pathways operate differently depending on where you load from. As Random Campaign takes advantage of the multiplayer screen features, it needs to be started and loaded from there. Nothing I can do about that. Just always use the multiplayer screen load button when loading a game for Random Campaign.

Not sure what you mean by 'choose more era'. You can already select what era to play the campaign with, so I'll assume you mean playing a single campaign against random factions from multiple eras. I've had that thought. Maybe in the 1.13/1.14 cycle, but no promises.

As for playing your army in more than 7 scenarios & playing against factions from another era, there's already a way to do this. It works by using my Custom Campaign add-on with Random Campaign.

A link to the thread is in my signature, but the short version is:
1. Make sure you have completed Random Campaign at least once. (Your army is saved at that point, even if you don't have Custom Campaign yet.)
2. Install Custom Campaign
3. Start a new Random Campaign with the era of your choice AND with the Custom Campaign mod active.
4. Once the campaign is started, It will then let you choose any army that you previously completed Random Campaign with.

In this way, it will let you play more scenarios with your army and against a different era's worth of factions as well.
Because of the above, I'm unlikely to add the ability to choose something like 20 scenarios in one run as well. (Such a thing would also make the loading time issue worse as well.)

Hello, thank you for the answer.
About to play more eras : I've just missed the fact it's already possible it look.
Because when I start a game I choose the era + campaign of the mod. I will try to choose another era instead.

I saw you made a mod about recall some units from previous campaign. It's great.
Maybe it could be unbalanced because units will be upgraded/leveled, and start a new campaign with could be too easy. Or maybe it need to change IA starts options.

I will play your mod with some eras, it's very nice to choose any era and play a campaign with, because there is a lot of eras that look funny and I never play it because I don't play MP. But it will be fun to play it in SP campaign.
THanks
French Player. For now, I'm working on creation of abilitys and units with WML. My goal is to make an enhanced version of Elves, playable with standard campains. HERE : http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php ... 58&start=0

I just tried to instal it. It does not show in campaign or multiplayer. Did I do something wrong? Custom campaign shows up in multiplayer. Wesnoth 1.12.5

From what you wrote, it looks like you're looking for it under multiplayer scenarios. To find Random Campaign when installed, from title screen Multiplayer -> Local Game -> On the Create Game screen, select Game Type 'Campaign'. It should then be visible.

Version 1.3.2 is up for BfW 1.13.7 and up

Changes
Selecting a Dwarvish Runesmith line as a leader is now a custom option for the campaign. When enabled and the player selects a Knalagan Alliance dwarf as a leader, it is replaced with one from the Dwarvish Runesmith line. Thus it works with any era using Knalgan Alliance as a faction.
Removal of the no longer needed RC eras
Simplification of the custom options turn slider
Minor code cleanup



EDIT (2018-02-05)
Version 1.3.3 is up for BfW 1.13.7 and up

Changes:
Updated code for compatibility with faction renaming in BfW 1.13.11
