There's a bug in 06a_Old_Friend.cfg:388.

Code: Select all

[store_locations]
   ...
   range=10
range isn't part of the SLF, it should be radius.
That causes Tallin to always shout to get out of the caves and kill everybody, even if there's like a screen full of enemies blocking the way.

Who's the current maintainer by the way?

Nobody is, but I've been thinking about requesting to become it for some time now so I'll take this opportunity to ask.

Would I be able to be the maintainer of this campaign? I'm not really sure if I should give more information on what I plan to do as the maintainer, but I guess all I can say is I'll do what maintainers do, in addition to possibly finishing the evil branch? I know Wesbane was working on a add-on version of it, but that was a year ago and there's been no more mention of it since then.

To be precise last release happened on 30th December 2010 so year didn't pass since then at the time of posting this comment. And cutting any further questions on this subject: Yes I'm working on this. Official answer for completion of a branch is IIRWIIR. But since some obviously can not sleep until new version of a remake will be published unfortunately I will have to make a half release.

As for bugs remake have much less of them so if you are interested in playing rebirth you can surely play it forked version since it somewhat improved to original one.

Since the feature freeze is coming up, I want to renew my objections to the "this unit" language staying in the Rod of Justice option dialogue. This is not to say that the developers should replace it with my dialogue in particular, rather that referring to a unit in-game as a "unit" takes the player out of the fictional world; it works against the effect that the designers are trying to achieve by giving units names, portraits, sprites, and so forth. I already explained that I switched from $unit.name to first-person because all the other option dialogues in scenario 5 were in first-person. Still, if the developers do not want to write dialogue, $unit.name would be better than "this unit."

I found a typo in the story of the level "Old Friend".
They found Hamel in a forge hammering away at a new axe. He greeted them warmly and arrangements were quickly made for all their food and accommodations, as wall as care for the sick and wounded.
As wall?

P.S. Great campaign. :D
Sorta on a break from the forums ATM, have been for a while. If I was doing something for/with you and I haven't recently, that's why, I will be back soon hopefully.

I would like to suggest to make Krash one of the needed units before he becomes the leader of the drakes -> when you let him die before "Stolen Gold" you will not know what you lost and the scenarios will become unbeatable (when i first played this campaign some years ago, Krash died in "The Pursuit" and then i began in "Stolen Gold" to wonder who that empty side is, even though I managed to win the scenario, I didnt have ANY chance to beat the next one (only managed to survive till the turns run out))

even if you dont give him him a silver crown icon, at least tell the player that it will be extremely hard to win without Krash

“Eastern Flank”
way to hard, only made it by cheating me some luck on my second try in the last 5 turns
BUT that was probably because of the missing finish bonus in “Stolen Gold”
→ the units I could have recruited/recalled from that gold would have been enough I think

maybe I just played it wrong, please look at my replay and tell me what I did wrong

“Get the Gold”
no early finish bonus
no recovered gold (I start the next scenario with the retained gold/standard starting gold, instead of the recovered amount of gold)
the scenario has more sides then required → as many sides as the last scenario has

“Showdown”
Without any gold its hopeless (initial 1900 gold versus 12500). That is all I have to say.

Edit:
im taking my statement regarding the situation in "Showdown" back. Immortal White Mages are overpowered. Will post a replay when the scenario is over.

Btw, the aggro of the enemy ai is to hard on Tallins army

Northern Rebirth
“Epilogue”
the map is different from the fortress in “Showdown”

wrong word
“If a chieftain refused to co-operate with the Alliance, he was forcibly removed from his post and another more favourably disposed put in his place.”
maybe it should be “... favourably then the disposed put in...”
or “... favourably candidate/orc put in...”

Is it actually campaign feedback or a bug report / enhancement request ?
There is a forum for gameplay feedback.

While you are right about that, it still is more likely that your idea/suggestion/report get's noticed on github in comparision of the forums. I reported a bug more than 3 years ago, nothing. And then I created an issue on github for it and it was handled in a few weeks. xD

It's not that the forums are dead, it's that there are too less persons working on campaigns. (Pick a number between 1 and 3)

Posting on GitHub is not exactly solving this underlying issue, it's just more prominently.

It are 17 mainline campaigns after all, and there is much which one could do with each of them to improve it…
Starting from fixing actual bugs, improving the balance to taking advantage of things which didn't exist years ago when the campaigns were written, e.g. better AI settings or new terrain types.

And there are things which are better discussed here, or done by players, such a balance.
