Re: Help a computer idiot

Yeah, just try re-downloading from SourceForge until you get a non-corrupt file. The same thing happened to me when I first downloaded 1.4.7 about a week ago. I VERY rarely get corrupted downloads (once or twice a year, maybe?), and since you experienced the same issue with the exact same file, I su...

Re: "administrato" behavior

This thread's a bit awkward, isn't it?

I can't say I fault Noy for being aggressive or stern with someone spamming gibberish, regardless of the circumstances. I'd do the same or worse in his shoes.

Re: How to get art for a faction (no specific faction)

It's clear to me that good art is the rarest resource in the Wesnoth community, followed closely by good music. From what I gather, there are plenty of people with potentially good era/faction ideas, numerous experienced coders, a fair assortment of teams and individuals who create solid default era...

Re: Era of Magic v9.2 the Elemental Gods

Okay, fair enough. I'll refer to the CFG files directly, and PM you with any concerns.

Re: Era of Magic v9.2 the Elemental Gods

I'm beginning to notice that there are inconsistencies with some EoM unit names, as well as a few (apparently) incomplete unit names. For example, this unit is called a "Dark Witch" in-game. Yet it is referred to as a "Shadow Witch" in both the description text and the WML code. This unit and others...

Re: Era of Magic v9.2 the Elemental Gods

Do you have a separate Microsoft Word document or other digital manuscript containing the Era of Magic descriptions? I know how to find descriptions in the raw CFG files, but those files also contain a lot of code, which will slow me down considerably. If not, don't worry about it. I can work with a...

Re: Era of Magic v9.2 the Elemental Gods

I'm willing to copy-edit Era of Magic, Inferno — that is, read through the text descriptions, correct grammatical errors, and improve formatting.

If you're interested, I can begin immediately.

Re: What should/will/would look like tBfW 2.0?

3D graphics are not "better" than 2D graphics. They are simply different. Wesnoth will likely never use 3D graphics, because it's simply not the graphical style we want for the project. Additionally, 2D artwork has a rather 'timeless' feel to it. What looks good now will look good in five years. Wi...

Re: What should/will/would look like tBfW 2.0?

I like the 16-bit graphical style of Wesnoth. While the technology itself isn't terribly sophisticated (pixels instead of polygons), the important thing is to do the best you can with what you have available, and create something aesthetically pleasing. I'm something of a "graphics whore" myself, an...
