Ulf should stop after 30 rounds. I am wondering if anyone has ever seen that.
Probably not for the Ulfserker. But it does sometimes happen for lizards or toads in the add-on campaign Swamp Witch Curse.

Re: The Rise of Wesnoth: Midlands

That would also make sense on the map, where Oldwood is east of the Swamp. Related to issue 4289 , which is asking if the wrong forest is labelled as the Oldwood. It seems that the location of the Oldwood changed when the map was revised for version 1.4 - I'm not sure why. (It's kind of hard to see...

Re: Add or Adjust background color for text readability

The keyword "green" has historically been particularly unreliable to use because there are two versions of "green" in common use: "X11 Green" and "Web Green". Sometimes you'll get one, sometimes the other. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X11_color_names#Clashes_between_web_and_X11_colors_in_the_CSS_co...

The version on SourceForge is 64-bit
Why is the installer file named "wesnoth-1.15.1-win32.exe"?

Also, why does the installer offer to install in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Battle for Wesnoth 1.15.1"? Usually 64-bit programs go in "C:\Program Files" instead of "C:\Program Files (x86)".

Re: Legend of Wesmere dates

It seems that ESR changed it on that timeline here back in 2011. Six years later, Celtic_Minstrel then added that to the _main.cfg file here . It seems ESR hasn't been active in over a year. Does anyone know how we can ask him why he changed it? If the change was made that long ago, I doubt that he...

Re: Legend of Wesmere dates

The timeline used to say that Legend of Wesmere started in 12 YW (I'm not sure why it was changed). Note that this means when El'Isomithir speaks of Haldric I repudiating the treaty eleven years ago here , this would then be 4YW, which is before the events of "An Orcish Incursion". We may wish to ma...

Re: Notability guidelines

Another criterion you could consider for notability is whether a character has a custom portrait (instead of just using a generic portrait image).

That might not work for newer campaigns like Wings of Victory, but in most of the older campaigns the notable characters have their own portraits.

Re: Nintendo Switch Port

edit: And what do you mean, "adapt"? Many of the people working on wesnoth are professional developers. (And others are professional writers, or professional artists, etc) I think "adapt" here means to adapt to working on Wesnoth professionally (i.e., working to meet the requirements of an external...

Re: SLOW Performance Issues: post here to report

How can run windows 1.12 on win 10? :hmm: I wonder win 10 64-bit can run it. I assume you mean Wesnoth 1.12 on win 10 (64-bit)? It works for me. The Windows version of Wesnoth is a 32-bit application, but the 64-bit version of Windows 10 should be able to run it without problems. (This post is some...

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...

Those images are all indexed PNGs. According to the wiki : Be aware that "Indexed color", "color map", or "PNG-8" is a different format.
