Re: Elvish Shamans vs Mages in HttT

Excuse me, but what does it mean, "play as a Roman"? The term was originally mentioned in this comment : In my opinion, I actually kind of think that slow is really nothing more than a secondary ability. It's good against those units that have a ridiculously high damage, but not much else. It also ...

Re: Top Best UMC campaigns

I think my favourite ones are still the two arabian nights - first the one with the flying carpet unit; but the other one where you have hero units is pretty cool too ... there are also djinni in that one. There is also some epic-long one with about 200 scenarios? Or something like that. It is quit...

Re: my Outpost hurts Hard

Yes, I'll explore the map again, and no, I won't use knowledge of what the enemy's recruit list and strategy is. I'll only use knowledge that the character I'm playing has at that point. If there's something I know from trying the scenario previously and dying, I won't use it (unless the scenario s...

Re: my Outpost hurts Hard

In the majority of mainline scenarios, knowing what is going to happen doesn't matter, because nothing out of the ordinary happens. It is only in certain scenarios in certain campaigns that foreknowledge even becomes applicable, and those cases are officially discouraged. (Except for shrouds I gues...

Re: transparency issue (on Ubuntu only..)

Those images are all indexed PNGs. According to the wiki : Be aware that "Indexed color", "color map", or "PNG-8" is a different format. Although it might work in a buggy way, we strongly recommend you not use these. There may be an option in your graphics program to save PNGs in the right format (i...

Re: Possible DATAURI bug

interesting thanks, odd though that DATAURI works in [option] for image=... so presumably different code going on in there... I think the difference is that one doesn't accept multiple (comma-separated) images. So, yes, the code is probably different there (there's no code splitting the value up at...

Re: Possible DATAURI bug

That's probably because the china in the datauri is interpreted at a ipf argument separator, one might call this a bug but even if I'd be low.priority since datauris were mostly invented for pbl files, why don't you just add an image file to your add-on? Just to clarify this: I think autocorrect so...

But why does it only crash when starting a particular campaign?
This is just a wild guess, but could it be a specific music track that's triggering it? (since that campaign has its own music)

Re: The Succession in Heir to the Throne

I can't see what succession laws would lead to Asheviere, Garard II's wife, inheriting ahead of Li'sar, Garad II's daughter. I think the dialogue alludes to this in some places, like in the scenario "Elven Council" : I will return, and people will accept me as Queen. I will rule justly and fairly. ...

Re: my Outpost hurts Hard

TBH I think all scenarios in all campaigns on hard depend on meta-game knowledge, especially if you are trying to do a no-reload run. If reloading is allowed, you can just keep reloading to correct your mistakes till you win, which isn't that difficult to do at all. :hmm: I've only played about hal...

Re: [interface] Notifying players when there are add-on updates available.

We could even consider having addon version checks in the "Load Game" flow: "This savegame uses addon Foo 1.2.3 but Foo 2.0.0 is installed, continue? y/n" But at that point, there's not much the player can actually do about the problem. The add-on server doesn't provide a way to access old add-on v...

Just looking at https://wiki.wesnoth.org/Tiles_Tutorial - one of the images links to http://www.idi.ntnu.no/~haskjold/wesnot ... _tiles.png which is just weird.
http://www.idi.ntnu.no/~haskjold/ was presumably the web site of Hogne Håskjold, Wesnoth's early terrain art director.
