Witch Campaign: Mountain Witch

Post by IIIO_METAL » January 21st, 2017, 4:01 am

Hello.
This thread belongs to Mountain Witch, single player campaign.
I am IIIO_METAL. I made this add-on.

I will tell you first. I can not speak much English. Therefore, the text displayed during the campaign is created using Google translation.
It is expected to be quite strange sentences. Text related improvements are important issues.

Current version
For Wesnoth 1.12.6: Version 1.1.14

For Wesnoth 1.14.0~: Version 1.1.19

In order to improve the strange English I wrote, tamanegi is advancing the revision of the English text.
The progress status can be checked here.
Transifex(Wesnoth-JP) : https://www.transifex.com/wesnoth-jp/public/

It consists of 19 playable scenarios and 2 story scenarios.
About 70% of the units that appear are made up of newly created or modified units.
Here we adopt a slightly different employment method and item use.

This is a campaign where the witch is the leading role.
The core of the idea is as follows.
1: Witches do not hire soldiers with money. Make a monster appear by magic.
2: Because it is a witch, you can make suspicious medicine.

Bug reports, ideas for improvement, and other feedback are always welcome.

looks sweet! :) so, i decided to help with translations to english, the original text is on the left, and the corrections are on the right (they are in the order of the playing) here are some of the stuff i found in scenario 1:

Thank you, ForestDragon. I am grateful for your cooperation. Since I have not finished my work yet, I end up with short sentences.
See you.

hi, so, i just completed the campaign! and what i have to say is: Your addon is a masterpiece! but the english translation is kind of... well... horrible at times. i will try to correct words in individual scenarios, but it will take me quite a lot of time.

btw, could you use less words in all caps (like, for example: SOMETHING, while it should be Something or something (note: the word 'something' is just an example))

Hello.
Thank you for complimenting me. About English ... no excuse at all. I am conscious of being terrible.
Yesterday, I found your thread in the artwork forum.
I am using a lot of artwork that you painted. Many artworks have helped many times.
I think the correction of sentences is a tough task as there are so many texts. Thank you.

I made a terrible mistake in trying to fix and upload scenario 1 with what you suggested.
I lost passphrase. I asked for help in the wrong place, and taught me to talk to Soliton there.
I am a bit depressed.

Postscript: I can input English in uppercase and lowercase letters. No problem.

Hello, IIIO_METAL.

I have noticed that there is probably a bug with manually set ellipses under the units (I am running Wesnoth 1.12.6 on Windows)
Documentation https://wiki.wesnoth.org/UnitTypeWML says

Code: Select all

ellipse: the ellipse image to display under the unit, which is normally team-colored. Default is "misc/ellipse"; "-nozoc" and "-leader" are automatically appended for units without zone of control and with canrecruit=yes respectively.
But small wisp unit (Spirit_Small_wisp.cfg) is displayed with "Image not found" text.
Spoiler:
I would recommend to remove the explicit ellipse set under the [unit_type] since zero level units by default have nozoc ellipse.

>ForestDragon
Thanks for the advice, I will contact moderators.

>sergey
I was completely unaware of the bug. Thank you.
Fixing was easy, but as I wrote above I have lost my passphrase so I can not update the addon for a while.

"Ma'am" would be more normal. Madam has other connotations in normal English usage.

But perhaps 'maintainer' is too strong a word.

Thanks for the advice.

I will use "Ma'am".

I added a bit to the description of magic pattern. Does this make sense?

"the magic pattern gives a defense bonus, it heals the unit standing on it. And, it gives a attack Bonus the witches standing on it."
I did this.

I did the following work.
I made ".pot". I replaced the Japanese text that remained unmodified with English.
I can not upload it to the server yet, but I am working a little at a time.
Now I am trying to make this addon correspond to Wesnoth 1.13.6.

I uploaded for Wesnoth 1.13.6.
Since the correction part to correspond to 1.13.6 was fewer than I expected, I was able to finish the work earlier than planned.
The add-on reflects the advice received in this thread. I made a bit more modifications to the epilogue.

When playing on a Mac, if you buy items at a shop in succession, the game reaction will become extremely slow.
On Windows, this problem did not occur.

by the way:
Spoiler:
EDIT: also, a few scenario 1 corrections:
seek witches for help > seek help from witches
are you drawing a sign of a contract! > are you drawing a sign of a contract?
