Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

Go ahead, then. Don't publish the entire Preferences file if it saves your account password! :) (as Ravana said below, this is not pertinent in 1-14 edition.) You want to look through it for the line which begins with mp_era= . Do as I said in the previous message, then post that line only and in it...

Re: Tower defense maps

I was working on a port of this also. The Tower Defense paradigm doesn't work very well in this engine unless you allow towers to attack every tile between a moveto . That was one of the things which I was doing. Otherwise, you would want ranged attacks on the towers. I suppose you could design a ch...

Re: Witch Campaign: Mountain Witch

The trouble is with playing the file Mountain_Witch/music/Arkenstoned.ogg . I'm not certain why Lua is coughing at it, but this trouble resides in the Lua underworkings and how the engine handles that audio file, and not with this campaign, methinks. Anyway, those “optional” add–ons are not required...

OT: error message in Lua

<Lua error> lua/wml-tags.lua:281: Error: Attenoted to acces an invalid music track. Is that really what it said? “Attenoted to acces”? I used Grep through a copy of the source — c998f13a4526d89840b3bf7e36e6a4ffd57d7c80, so a tad old — and it returned nothing. If you copied this from a screenshot, t...

Re: Era of Worms

As this has a few sea worm factions, some of you may be interested to see the addition of new water tiles.

Re: Galactic Empires (MP Sci-fi Scenario)

You see, every time I chose a GEA map, it tells me to select an era that will match it (i.e. the Galactic Empires Era itself) right? Well, whenever that happens, the engine ends up selecting the era that appears just below the GEA on my list of eras :doh:. So, it asks you to select a compatible era...

Re: Eastern Europe at War (EEaW) - 2.1 for 1.14!

Oh, I'm sorry! No, I don't know much about history of the add-on revisions. I haven't played it against the computer nor another human player, so I don't know much about any unbalancing introduced with revisions. Also … maybe my reply seems too antagonistic. I don't know if you thought so or not, bu...

Re: Eastern Europe at War (EEaW) - 2.1 for 1.14!

If you want an era that doesn't use new game mechanics, then don't use those which do. There are plenty of other eras which are more like ol' Battle For Wesnoth. Those complaints don't matter much to some people. There is only so much you can do with simplistic game mechanics; I won't discuss here ...

Re: Armory Mod - Sp/Mp mod

My first thought, and probably many others' too, would be that so many available combinations of attacks causes the computations to slog through processing which doesn't predict each combination in parallel — but I don't know what I'm talking about there, because I've not looked at how it processes ...

water tiles with more diversity

I'm developing a map … not that anybody likes my maps anyway … which will have a land versus sea theme. To do so, I need to make some more diverse water tiles, especially the deep ocean — Wo* — ones. The flatness of deep ocean tiles is rather restrictive for what I could do, but I'm thinking of thin...

Re: 10 Age's - Story of Your Civilization

From the name of it — and where it was used, — I would expect that it was meant to be some other sound. Of course, would be funny if the sound was edited to make it seem bigger… It actually is defined in add-ons/age/sound_macros2.cfg , and that is included in the _main.cfg at line 12. I tested it, a...

By the way, where do you play your sessions mostly? Are they private, off the internet, or are they on a Discord server, or something like that?

Re: Moonday Era

Maybe you would like to do a few mini-campaigns so as to help bring new users in? Or, one big campaign — which, if done well, would take a nontrivial amount of work to make it be interesting; however, I think that more people will comment on campaigns than on eras. Especially if the campaign has a ...

Re: The Battle for Wesnoth Card Game

This is the Art Workshop board, though. All the information you put here would be better in your other topic, would it not? Anyways, from what you said, I infer that each player has a pool of points / mana / coins, and that they use this pool to purchase cards which they assembled. It is very confus...
