Re: Help menu doesn't work

Battle for Wesnoth v1.14.17 There will be fixes, but they're likely to be in 1.16 (AFAIK there won't be a 1.14.18 because 1.16 will release first). Thanks for reporting them - the one for "Map and Scenario Editor: Wesnoth Map Format" was fixed in 1.15.14, and my post to Antro yesterday ha...

Re: How to win "The Eastern Invasion" campaign?

Showing my bias a bit, but there's almost no fair fights in that campaign. Instead of going back a few scenarios, I'd suggest having a look at the poll results in https://r.wesnoth.org/t51916

Re: Help menu doesn't work

While the problem with the Introduction section is solved and now the Help Menu can be regularly opened, the same problem now is present on many other pages of the Help section. Thanks for reporting. It seems to me that the "Map and Scenario Editor" section's main topic is broken, but the...

Re: Tutorial bug - quintain actually can kill ya

I like the suggestions, but for string freeze suggest a quick fix: # On the Quintain's first turn, it's always next to the player, but # sometimes the AI chooses to move before attacking. If it moves onto # 12,4 and then the player chooses to heal in the 10,3 village, the # Quintain can move to 11,4...

Re: Wesnoth 1.15.14 (1.16 Beta 1)

A warning is now displayed when the next scenario is unknown (issue #5530). Is there a way to disable this? Through WML/Lua, not preferences. Do you have a use-case that needs to disable it? If so, I'll have a look at how to avoid it triggering in that case. Values that don't trigger it are: an emp...

There's a third command-line option, the --userconfig-dir.

Re: Translators wanted for my add-ons

With Poedit, first open the de.po file, which should show all the existing translations for mainline. Then in the "Übersetzung" menu, choose "Aus POT-Datei aktualisieren" and select the tbw.pot file. Scroll down and you should see the already-translated lines, but Poedit likes to...

Re: Wesnoth 1.15.14 (1.16 Beta 1)

I've got an #ifhave section which only loads a combination of eras from 2 addons if both eras are installed. For some reason only the factions of that era and the macros for default era plus dunefolk work while the includes for the other era don't work. Well 6 of 7 don't work. The one that does wor...

Re: Wesnoth 1.15.14 (1.16 Beta 1)

First time I tried to run my addons I got a few errors. I went and fixed the first one and that worked nicely but what's very odd is that on subsequent runs I am not getting the other errors reported again even though they are still unfixed and definitely not working. Try the --nocache command-line...

Re: The game doesn't start

Now logged as #5923. I don't know when the bug itself will be fixed, however the uselessness of the console error message is a one-liner.

Re: Game Crashes on changing desktops

The best chance I have to reproduce it is starting a new scenario or loading a saved game, though occasionally when starting a new turn. Are you using the keyboard to switch desktops? I ask because 4447 is a race condition with keyboard input on the black loading screen. That wouldn't explain a cra...

Re: Unit see another

sighted triggers when the Ice Hole's side sees the other unit, and so won't trigger if another unit on the Hole's side has already spotted the unit. I could use a filter_location with a radius equals to the unit's vision but it would pass through walls, wouldn't it? You can put a terrain filter in ...

Re: Game speed

Sounds a good idea. I'll leave it to someone else to decide on the defaults, but have opened a pull request (#5858) to mention it in both the tips and the tutorial.

Re: Winds of Fate 3.0.1 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.15.13 and up)

Instead of guessing what it does, please write a unit test. That way not only will we know what it does now, no-one will break it later.
