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.

Are image uploads currently not allowed on the wiki at all?

I tried clicking the "Upload" button but it gave me this error: apierror-permissiondenied

Re: The Ravagers - SP campaign now for 1.14 - [Feedback and development]

Note that, on most operating systems, you can have Wesnoth 1.12 and Wesnoth 1.14 both installed at the same time.

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

It would good if players could have some sort of visual notification in the main screen telling them add-on they have installed has an update available. The problem I see with this is that it appears to be really pushing people to always update their add-ons, even though that may cause problems in ...

Re: .ogg files with Windows 10 version 1903

I had the problem as well. But .ogg files are not important to me so I shrugged and move on to other things. One site says it's solved, btw. Don't know and not really interested enough to find out. Thanks for the report. I noticed that https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/brs394/1903_broke_o...

.ogg files with Windows 10 version 1903

I'm posting this in Off-Topic because it doesn't actually seem to affect BfW , but I'm curious if anyone here has updated to Windows 10 1903, and if so, have you noticed any issues with .ogg files? I updated Windows from 1809 to 1903 yesterday and the new version seems to be very flaky (it will some...

That should have caused an error message Macro/file '~add-ons/my_first_campaign/scenarios' is missing. Not sure why it didn't.
But what if there actually is a campaign my_first_campaign installed? Then ~add-ons/my_first_campaign/scenarios really does exist.

Re: Scenario won't load

It looks like you need to change {~add-ons/my_first_campaign/scenarios} to {~add-ons/poem_of_the_eastern_empire/scenarios}. (And a few other lines still mention to my_first_campaign too.)
