You could just add some more holy water.

Code: Select all

1 + (alpha - 30)
Isn't that the same as alpha - 29? Is that really what you intended?

Maybe this is what you want?

Code: Select all

image="{IMAGE}~RC(magenta>{COLOR})~ADJUST_ALPHA(if(alpha = 255, 255, 0))"

Re: A New Order.

Thanks for your reply. I'm planning to make an add-on that takes place right after King Konrad II dies. I'm not sure if that's a good idea since add-ons like this existed. I would not worry too much about conflicts with other add-on campaigns; an enormous number of add-on campaigns have been writte...

Re: A New Order.

Just asking but is this campaign canon? I've seen this page (https://wiki.wesnoth.org/Garardine_Dynasty) and I'm not sure if it makes A New Order campaign as canon or not. Well, in general, the only things you can rely on as "canon" are the mainline campaigns (i.e., the campaigns that com...

Re: Question about Add-on relocation

The most convenient way to run the command would be to create a Windows shortcut with the command-line flag(s) that you want to use. See the example here.

There were 6 different translation strings in the file containing a \v (out of several thousand translations). It wasn't all 6 \v in one place.

Re: The game doesn't start

The occurrences of \v are in the translated strings, not the original strings, so they're not from wmlgettext. Presumably they were added when editing the file with Poedit. According to https://github.com/vslavik/poedit/issues/637 "You can get the '\v' character if you press shift and enter sim...

Re: Bad Moon Rising co-op?

I don't want to sound discouraging, but - Bad Moon Rising is a pretty large, complex campaign, and converting it to multiplayer would be quite a big project, especially for someone just learning the basics of developing add-ons. I would suggest starting with something simpler. Note that there is a W...

Re: A New Order.

It's just you actually. :D SoW is by far younger than ANO and there have never been any attempts to reconcilate the timelines of these two campaigns, or to fit ANO into the Dragon War canon. Well, the narrator in Soldier of Wesnoth mentions the Akladians, so it must have been intended to be part of...

Re: The game doesn't start

I think the issue is triggered by the \v escape sequences in the translations. (There are 6 of these in the file.)

Re: The game doesn't start

Did you try your idea of zipping it? I would think a .zip file would be a lot smaller.

I think it would be more accurate to say that Soldier of Wesnoth is a prequel to A New Order.

(A New Order was released in 2005, while Soldier of Wesnoth was written later, in 2013.)

It looks like the campaign might have case sensitivity issues. Are you playing on Linux?

Re: Help menu doesn't work

The translation sometimes uses <italic>text='Battle for Wesnoth'</italic> and sometimes <italic>Battle for Wesnoth</italic> Perhaps a stupid question, but which of those is malformed? I'd normally assume the first one, but a search for <italic>text= returns over 12000 results in various translation...
