Re: Copyright on homepage is out of date.

All fixed now.

... Except for the add-ons index and units.wesnoth.org. Those will fix themselves over the next few days as they are automatically regenerated.

Re: Shouldn't a STONE CASTLE provide more defense than a wooden palisade?

If you think it should be easy, then put together a changset and submit a PR. You might find it easier for your changes be accepted into the core/mainline game if you get a few years experience on the idea as UMC. To clarify, there’s basically no chance gameplay-impacting changes of that magnitude ...

Re: Shouldn't a STONE CASTLE provide more defense than a wooden palisade?

The gameplay rules are supposed to be simple. The existence of hybrid terrains with different bonuses/penalties to stats depending on worst/best terrain in the same hex (e.g. snowy hills forest) is already such a stretch for the system, complicating things further by altering weapon specials dependi...

Game abstractions (also known as WINR). You'll find this kind of thing in pretty much every strategy game.

Re: After the Storm 0.9.17 [Wesnoth 1.12]

There’s a rather severe bug near the end of the last episode that makes it impossible to finish the campaign right now on 1.14. No ETA for a fix yet, unfortunately, since for most intents and purposes I’m not working on anything Wesnoth-related at this time other than server maintenance. (There’s al...

Re: Cant log in wesnoth official server

I didn’t even realize our rudimentary textboxes accepted line breaks. The resulting display when you have a leading line break is quite interesting, to say the least. (If you don’t want to do the experiment yourself, everything after the leading line break becomes invisible but it’s still there.) Is...

Re: how to switch to desktop version on mobile?

Both Chrome and Firefox on Android have a Desktop option in their menu which among other things results in them pretending the viewport is larger than it actually is. I don’t know about any other browsers or iOS.

Re: 1.14 MP server login requirement

Yes, you are somewhat right, but taking in consideration ppl that don't want to play, for something that's not there and ppl that already play and driving them away with something that was added, is different. I quickly cited a non-preexisting situation that has turned some people off before withou...

Re: 1.14 MP server login requirement

On this matter, I have to say that, some of my friends dint want to try Wesnoth cause of the registration annoyance and a couple stopped to play altogether. Some of my friends didn’t want to try Wesnoth because it’s a strategy game. Some people don’t want to try Wesnoth because of the RNG’s involve...

Re: Wesnoth 1.14.5

You should subscribe to the internationalization mailing list if you haven’t done so already, since that’s where we post announcements relevant to translators including string freeze and release dates.

This is something we cannot trivially fix without opening us up to malicious uses of the tag, unfortunately.

Re: Are Dunefolk human?

I swear we talked about this before. It may have been on IRC, though. Yes, they are humans. They are a different race in game because of names for individual units (I think). This is really the only reason they still are a separate race even though the subject was brought up during 1.11.x already an...

Re: Time for 1.14.6?

For the nth time, there is no need to talk about whether there should be a 1.14.7. There must be more stable releases as needed until the next stable series is released, which is obviously not going to happen within the next 6 months. Of course you can’t force stable releases to happen if there aren...
