Re: Affecting random "rolls"

I know. But I can't reply on the Steam forums because they (Steam) require me to purchase the right to support our product. Maybe, now that they have some actual competition, things will improve. *sigh*

Re: Affecting random "rolls"

Why is it people have no problem with their Hero constantly running heedlessly into battle and surviving by the skin of his teeth but the one time he trips over a tree root and stabs himself its all the fault of some defect, if not outright cheating?

Re: Tools development

It might be best to begin work on the Eclipse plug-in by evaluating if it's even worth saving. It might be better to simply remove it from master and consign it to the commit-history dustbin.

Re: Tools development

And if you want to work on something larger, the Eclipse plug-on could use a lot of love.

Over half the code-quality issues on the Codacy code-review lists come from the Java, Python tools.

Re: Copyright violation

Unregistered, and not used in anything like a deceptively similar manner. I imagine someone could make a case of it, though. To be honest, that this subject even comes up is, to my mind, another example of why I detest the religion of the FSF, it's leader, and it's draconian licensing recommendation...

Re: Copyright violation

The image you present is 16x16. Wesnoth does include a 16x16 windows icon. When I compare the two side-by-side, scaled up enough to be able to see the pixels, they appear quite different. So, unless you can prove they started with a Wesnoth image and intentionally worked to make it different, I'd ag...

Re: Unoffficial torrent for Battle for Wesnoth

Not really. For popular stuff, sure. But there is an awful lot of stuff on Torrent which has only one server announcing, and has a single point of failure just like an FTP or HTTP download site. Personally, I consider Torrent a security threat and will only use it if there is no other option. But it...

Re: Default config file for wesnothd

You don't say which OS this is for. I'm assuming you want a `.cfg` file for some menu manager on some display manager for Linux. ISTM one is created on my system, Arch, using `pacman` to install. Other packagers might not do that. YMMV. `man wesnoth` or have the program display them with `wesnoth --...

Re: Potentially stolen artwork from Battle for Wesnoth in steam game

License allows the use of the artwork. The violation would be if *they* tried to prevent you from using it in your games, as well.

Re: Serious network delay

Reboot your router and computer. If that does not solve it, call your cable provider for support.

Re: Where to ask?

Consider a map divided in half by an impassable river. The initial goal is to liberate and hold a village by the river for several turns while a bridge is built. You have a special unit (Engineers) which must occupy the village for a morning-to-evening cycle. If they do so, modify the map to place a...

Re: Lua & WML, when to use what?

There is more to "right choice" than expressiveness or speed. Sometimes the right choice is governed by your successors. For example, if I write a campaign and expect others will maintain it because, let's face it, I'm old, even though Lua would clearly be the better choice, unless I have some compe...
