Siege of Elensefar Starting Gold

Not entirely sure where this topic belongs but... I've read that the starting gold for Siege of Elensefar, having completed Isle of the Damned, is supposed to be the finishing gold from IotD PLUS the 40% carryover from tBoP PLUS the minimum starting gold. As far as I can tell the gold from tBoP is l...

Re: tRoW: The Kalian missions

:shock: Wow. I just played Lizard Beach, going in with the thought that a mage-heavy army would be slaughtered. But with a few fodder peasants thrown in, I managed to not only finish it with few losses, I ended with a bonus of 120 gold for the next scenario! Someone should really go and update the w...

Re: tRoW: The Kalian missions

Huh? You managed to do the Dragon with near-minimum gold???

I am in awe.

Or is there a way to do Troll Hole without losing all your money?

Re: tRoW: The Kalian missions

I went ahead and redid Rough Landing, but the puny number of villages and the tiny early finish bonus still have me with just 80 bonus gold for the first of the Kalian missions. I doubt that I could finish Rough Landing with any less than I used, which was 3 rounds of recalls/recruits, starting with...

Re: tRoW: The Kalian missions

Did finish Troll Hole with enough gold for the next scenario though? It doesn't take many units to eat my gold too quickly. Okay, so I did the missions in the order listed above. After losing all of my gold, I managed to just barely get through. Unfortunately, I know that it is near impossible to ge...

Re: Could someone update the Create guides?

Next issue, how do you make a unit appear on a hex that isn't a keep? I'm trying to get a leader to appear on the board, then walk to a keep. Looking at HttT: Isle of Alduin, this code is used: [move_unit_fake] type=$konrad_store.type side=1 x=30,29,28,27,26,26 y=11,11,11,12,12,13 [/move_unit_fake] ...

Re: tRoW: The Kalian missions

Hmm. I did the exact opposite. I recalled 3 mermen to defend against the first waves of trolls, and 2 Highwaymen with some high-level magi to finish the scenario. I still ended with just a small amount of gold, due to the rather high upkeep, and the few villages that I had access to for the first ~1...

Re: tRoW: The Kalian missions

Okay...

So I went ahead and did Cursed Isle, Lizard Beach, and Troll Hole in that order. Now I have 64 gold on top of the starting gold. Is it still possible to get the bonus and not have extremely heavy losses, or should I go back and do them in another order?

Re: Could someone update the Create guides?

Here are the _main and the first scenario, the only files I have so far aside from the map for the first scenario.

I'm wondering, does this have anything to do with the textdomain tags? I don't have one in any of my files, because I thought they were only used for the purposes of translations.

Re: Use of Cavalrymen and Their Advancements

Hmm, I never imagined the calvalryman is being so tanky. I still hold to that it doesn't do quite as much damage as it sounds, something like 1 more than a wolf rider while having less mobility, but I do see that it is rather durable as a scouting unit. I guess that I always had the impression that ...

Re: Could someone update the Create guides?

Hmm. When I try to save manually, I get an odd line of text in the input box. It goes something like:

JttW ....name of savef ... Turn 1

Do I need to put in a name for savefiles?

Re: Could someone update the Create guides?

Hmm, I didn't know that...I just thought that the code was written funny (I take programming in school, we're always taught to space things out), but I guess white space matters here. I'll try it and see what happens.

Re: Could someone update the Create guides?

Okay so I'll start writing in this thread now, starting with this problem: So I've been working on a campaign, and I've gotten the _main file and the first scenario almost working. However, as the opening dialog of the first scenario ends, I get the error: Could not save the game. Please save the ga...

tRoW: The Kalian missions

Yes I realize there are other threads on this but I couldn't find one addressing my specific question: what is the optimal order to complete them in? The walkthrough advises me to do Cursed Isle last, but I find that I cannot get through the Dragon or Lizard Beach with the puny amount of gold I have...
