Hello, I've got a bug to report.
I couldn't load scenario "Fires of Hope". The bug is like that in "A Monstrous Help", but instead of Illegal map tile Xu, It's Illegal map tile Cme. I tried Chipica's method of replacing the tile with other ones but It didn't help. I'm using Wesnoth 1.12.6 and having the latest version of War of Legends and A Song of Fire installed.
Can anyone help me with this? Thank you in advance.

It didn't work because the missing tile is aquatic keep. To fix that use the notepad and change "Cme" to "Chw" and "Kme" to "Khw". Hope this help!!!

Is there a plan to port this mod to 1.14 version ?

I'd like to point out that this is not a mod.

I found Chipica's post last page:
Spoiler:
which sounds like the exact solution as I had the exact same problem with Fires of Hope, but my problem is that I cannot find the 1.12 addons folder.

I am playing this on Linux Mint.

For BfW 1.14 there are the two folders, for mainline campaigns and add-ons, respectively:
.../PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/SC2/dosdevices/z:/usr/share/games/wesnoth/1.14/data/campaigns
.../.config/wesnoth-1.14/data/add-ons

But for BfW 1.12
I've only been able to find the regular campaigns at
.../PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/SC2/dosdevices/z:/usr/share/games/wesnoth/1.12/data/campaigns

and .../.config/wesnoth-1.12/data/add-ons
does not exist, and neither do the add-ons show up even when I try a search of all files for .map files.

Can anybody help?

I don't know anything about linux, but you could try searching for a unit name, which appears only in an add-on you have on 1.12. Maybe that would work?

I even tried searching for .gz files to see whether I could find the saves folder and reverse-engineer it from there, but some are off-limits to the search function, apparently.

So.

Actually, last night proves that after a long day one should not simply be allowed anywhere near the Internet because the solution was staring at me right in the face.
a) enter editor mode
b) Load Map/Ctrl+O
c) the folder structure is displayed in all its magnificent beauty
d) profit!

So for this installation at least it's

/home/user/.local/share/wesnoth/1.12/data/add-ons

I'm leaving it out here so anybody with the same issue and running a similar installation can find their add-on files without ending up wishing orbital bombardment upon whomever developed their OS or packaged their distribution of Wesnoth.

So
a) make a backup copy and store it somewhere entirely outside the file structure used by the game
b) open the file as root; replace Cme and Kme with Chw and Khw; apply changes

There's nine instances of Cme and one of Kme…

c) REMEMBER TO RESTART THE GAME
d) Prosit!

Nnnnope.
I first installed Mint onto this computer when Microsoft decided to end support for Windows XP, so… that was 2014 and I got Mint 16 which I promptly upgraded to the shiny new standard release that was Linux Mint 17, with which I installed the standard BfW 1.10 which was the latest version in official respositories (I didn't know about 1.12 being out because I hadn't started lurking here).
Later on i found out about 1.12 and got it off PPA Vincent.
1.12 remains the default installation package for Mint 18, the system to which I finally upgraded this year after graduation, when I could afford, if necessary, to spend days fixing a potentially misinstalled system without it being a disaster (which did not happen!).
So I just typed in the instructions to add a repository in the console, entered a password… and it was all installed.

Now I have this bizarre allotment of filespace in which some files are kept in different folders and some (??) in PlayOnLinux.

I had to do the same with 20_Ring_of_Fire.map

Once again, I recommend that people do backups whenever trying this solution.
