Anyone else have this problem? I play this on my phone while I'm sitting on the "throne", and I get so involved that I forget the passage of time, and by the time I get up, my legs have fallen asleep and I have to stumble out of the bathroom in agony.

What file did you download? And why from sourceforge? On https://www.wesnoth.org/ the link for android goes to google play, not to sourceforge.

As a workaround to package downloading problems you can get zip files manually from sourceforge and put them into /sdcard/. The game will then unpack those instead of downloading.

Device:
Huawei GR5 2017
Android 7.0
Port version 1.14

I have this problem too. I used the workaround recommend by Alessandro, and copied the .zip files for the game (namely, wesnoth_essential-1.14.5, wesnoth_campaigns-1.14.5, and wesnoth_music-1.14.5) to my phone's internal storage. When I select these 3 packages on the app in the "Select packages to download" section and hit "OK", I get this error:

Error download data from wesnoth_music-1.14.5.zip

What can I do to fix this?

You just need to click on the hill you want and then add the forest on top, or the other way around if it doesn't work. It should give you a hybrid terrain if it exists for that combination.

Where are saved games and how to transfer between devices

Post by mthree » October 27th, 2019, 5:00 pm

Hi All,

I've looked the web for this, but was not able to find anything really tangent.

I am playing this game on my android device - I asked to install it and move the data to SD card.
When I look into my files on this phone, I can't seem to find any saved games files on my SD card.
When the game start and I go into the configuration, I can't seem to export any saved files "export failed"

I bought a new device, but first, it asks me to DL the game. I am not sure if that's normal. My goal would be to play BfW on my new device with the same saved game data.

Is it possible and how can I do this?

Thank you,

The savegames can under Android iirc be fuound somewhere in the Android/data subdirectory
Scenario with Robots SP scenario (1.11/1.12), allows you to build your units with components, PYR No preperation turn 1.12 mp-mod that allows you to select your units immideately after the game begins.

I've looked, but couldn't find any games. I've even tried to show the hidden files - but still nothing.`

How can we transfer saved data from a device to another?

After the automatic update to 1.14.9 via Play Store, the app repeatedly fails to download the language pack with the message
As a consequence, of course I can't use any language besides English, but I also get dropped to the Game Control Settings wizard on every start.
