Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

Probably they volcano most of them, because otherwise all those eggs that survive due to protection from predators and access to medicine and magic would result in explosive population growth and running out of resources :P

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

In the case of the Drakes I was influenced by Larry Niven's Kzin. I gave them non-sentient breeder females and a culture/biology far more centered on territoriality and dominance than any human society exactly so they *wouldn't* be humans in skin suits. Their alien-ness. and how this works out in t...

Re: Removing mainline campaign(s)

Wesnoth has a tendency to fail to act when no firm decisions one way or another can be reached, and I really did not want to spend days arguing back and forth as to whether point A or B or C was a valid reason for removal or not. People have tendency to act like that only because they rightly fear ...

Re: Any thoughts on C++ Modules

I have high hopes for C++ module system making template metaprogramming more viable. With headers just turning a function into a template may not be viable because it would force you to move entire definition to header and thus making compile slower. If we switch to modules we can use more templates...

Compiling on windows with msys2

A new way of building on windows is possible now, using MSYS2. This project not only provides prepackaged gcc of recent version but also windows builds of dependencies saving me the need to make deps packages. It reuses pacman, package manager from arch linux to support updates too. The procedure is...

Re: Can't pass GLEW check when building with Scons

Seems it finds it but it's in invalid format. Probably incompatible toolchains are used to build it. Maybe try building GLEW with your TDM GCC. I think GLEW's makefile supports mingw builds.

Re: Semantic Versioning compliance proposal

Of course, such possibly destabilizing changes like opengl require major version increment too, even if they don't change external api.

Semantic Versioning compliance proposal

Currently wesnoth's versioning scheme isn't compliant to semver spec . While for stable versions it more or less fits, dev releases work totally not in semver way. We also lack a way to signal forward compatible(that is not breaking existing UMC) feature additions in the stable branch. Here's the pr...

Re: Nightly flatpak builds

Right now flatpak builds of master are broken(it seems due to lack of GLEW in freedesktop runtime), and master itself is unplayable due to lots of WIP work in it. Releases of 1.14 as flatpaks are available at flathub: https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.wesnoth.Wesnoth

Re: Wesnoth 1.13.11 (1.14 Beta 3)

The git clone I made that release from was corrupted. I'll remake it, next release should be fine.

Re: Play older versions?

I think they all were on sourceforge, but it is down really often these days. If you can't get them from there you can try internet archive's wayback machine

Nightly flatpak builds

A nightly build of wesnoth master branch is available as a flatpak package now. Flatpak is a new package format for linux distros that allows distro-independent releases as well as runs applications in a sandbox for security. You can check here how to set it up on your distro. The procedure to insta...
