The Unstoppable Legion is back!

Postby Chris NS » October 10th, 2012, 2:02 pm

Hi everyone,

This message won't make sense to anyone who's not been hanging around on the forum for year and years, because I contributed a campaign years ago. Wesnoth 1.4, in fact. Anyone remember back that far? ... Anyone? Oh.

Anyway, the good news is that The Unstoppable Legion is back! Long story, but this is partly down to a change in career and I need to learn about programming again. I decided a long time ago that, unlike films, stories in computer games need to follow as many cliches as possible. So this campaign I promise includes a relctant hero, a megalomanic bad guy hell-bent on taking over the world, a wise mentor, and half-way through somebody shouts "Nooooooooooo!"

This is chapter 1. The full game will have four chapters, although I only got round to writing three the first time round. I'm not making any promises on when this will be done because I'm still very busy with other things. But this should get you started.

Please use this thread to report any bugs, balance issues or spelling/punctuation/grammar mistakes. I expect there to be a lot.

I played your first scenario, and I like it very much. :)
A great first scenario.
Nothing to complain about.

i've played this campaign before. nice to have it back.
just started and have to say i like it.

the ally leader took quite some risk, there was even a (small) chance he could have died before i got back with my troops.
referring to loyal units as "characters" sounds strange.

You are right. I have indeed forgotten to include the Dwarvish Battle Prince. I'm just surprised someone's managed to level him up so quickly.

Not so sure about why Deuterus isn't changing to a mounted unit. That will be a tough error to reproduce and without that I'll have trouble fixing this. If anyone else has this error can they report this, along with anything unusual they might have been doing (and possibly OS, just in case that's the issue).

Adding the Battle Prince and uploading this update.

I have played through and quite enjoyed it, but the new update won't load. The error message is:

Macro/file 'AMLA_TOUGH' is missing at ~add-ons/The_Unstoppable_Legion/units/Dwarvish_Battle_Prince.cfg:48 Included from ~add-ons/The_Unstoppable_Legion/_Main.cfg:42

0.8b fixed the problem, thank you. This game has the right feel to it, I can't wait for the part where the "oh Nooooooo" happens.

Best Regards

Version 0.8.1 is now on the server. This opens up the second path from the throne room scene.

I will advise you, however, that you won't find the the "Noooooooooo!" scene in the new scenario.

*bump*

New version uploaded. Now nine playable scenarios.

Please note there is a known issue with unit advancements here. I am aware of this and intend to fix this next.

Superb campaign as far. I've played it and it's really well crafted, playable, and entertaining. Very "Lord of the ring" mood.

I would gladly translate to french (I will look how this can be done)

Keep on the good work. I'm waiting impatiently for the end of the campaign !

Ladies and Gentlemen,

To celebrate the world not ending today, I bring you version 0.8.4 of The Unstoppable Legion, with two new scenarios ported over from the old version. This brings is up to 11 playable scenaios, plus 2 narrative ones.

Also in this edition I've rebalanced some of the scenarios, in particular The Mines of Alsok and Prejudice and Pride, which, on reflection, I decided were too hard. I've also fixed a number of issues with unit advances not working properly.

But best of all - we finally have the scenario where someone shouts "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

One other techincal note: there was a bug in the last scenario of version 0.8.3 concerning gold carryover. If you load a saved game into "A Painful Betrayal" you'll get the wrong gold carryover. If you want to fix your savefile, you can halve the amount of gold carried over and set it to add to, not replace, the starting gold in the next scenario. If you don't know what that is, it's probably easier to do the "Prejudice and Pride" scenario again.

Enjoy!

I think that in the 8th scenario "The Calm before the Storm", Viktor's recruit list should have UL_Horseman instead of the mainline Horseman.

Overall, looking pretty interesting, though I await the rest of the scenarios, not having played this before.
A witty saying proves nothing.

Well spotted. This has been corrected, and will be in the next upload.

Swirly, thanks for the offer of the French translation. As soon as I've got the old scenarios ported I'll look at getting this into Wescamp, or whatever it is we to for translations nowadays.
