Re: .ogg files with Windows 10 version 1903

I had the problem as well. But .ogg files are not important to me so I shrugged and move on to other things. One site says it's solved, btw. Don't know and not really interested enough to find out.

Re: Optional player's rating

I like the idea of a cooling-off period. It won't make it impossible, but it will make it quite a hassle to get the botnet properly programmed and running. must be registered on the Forums (hence registered on the MP servers). must be at least 30 days since registering (cooling off a bot). must enab...

Re: Optional player's rating

The proposed system is easily gamed. Once, long ago, in the early days of the Internet, before there was a World-Wide Web, I played a (text-only) game with such a system. I remember being so upset that I could never make the top spot. I had something like one million points from playing a few hours ...

Re: Wesnoth - new version?

I believe there is a command-line option to set the userdata directory. The project, itself, has no installer. I assume you're talking about a Windows installer, which would be handled by whoever does the Windows packaging. https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob/master/changelog.md is the "master" ...

Re: Wesnoth ran yesterday, not today.

Sounds like an update to SDL broke something. It might be informative to see if your libSDL updated Sunday and, if so, if falling back to the previous version fixes your issue.

Re: Resources

Sounds like a job for UMC.

My rule-of-thumb: if I thing something is interesting, I'm probably not unique, so others will too.

To your specific idea: dunno. Maybe, maybe not. Depends on how you implement it.

If he feels his changes warrant inclusion, I'm sure he'll either put them in himself or make a Pull Request so the rest of us can take a look at them. As to the OP's questions: a) Nope. Anyone who says they do is wrong. Some of us might have a date in mind but, I hope, we're all experienced enough, ...

Re: Poll: Do you reload usually if you lost your valuable high-level unit because of a strike of unluck?

I rarely get so attached to a unit I bemoan its loss. That is, of cource, except for a instant-loss unit such as Konrad in HttT. When I reload, I tend to restart the entire scenario on the supposition that, if I went wrong, I was probably wrong from the get-go. I might, occasionally, reload a turn o...

Re: [interface/engine] Advanced damage inflicted/taken hit count statistics

Depending upon the actually implementation, the only thing I could see growing (but linearly, not exponentially) would be an accumulated error. And that can usually be made to hold at 1/2-bit with a proper implementation.

Re: [interface/engine] Advanced damage inflicted/taken hit count statistics

The only problem I see is the "expected" value is a single value, actually the "mean". The question actually should be is the observed value within some confidence interval. 6/2.4 looks like you did real good. But if you admit "6 out of 2.4 +/-4.8" we can see the apparent excellent luck is really no...

Re: [engine] Stop when attacked

I've not looked, but it seems to me that it is actually a good idea to offer a Settings option (default: No) to Automatically Cancel Orders When Attacked. Having to load an autosave seems to support the idea that Wesnoth depends upon reloading.

Re: site crash

Every now and then my ISP raises their hand and admits that they run a transparent proxy for all web traffic by putting up what-they-think-are-critical messages. And every so often one of the kids working for them messes up and their message crashes whatever web page they're vicimizing. With all the...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

Google may be great but it's not the final authority. Searching for "Wesnoth RNG" and saying, "See! Lots of hits!" means nothing. Of course you don't see the complaints about other games. Quite simply, nobody on those other games mentions Wesnoth. The fact you didn't ask to see them, does not mean t...

Re: [POLL] What Operating Systems do you use Wesnoth on?

Oh, I see, you're referring to the couple of people who don't know what flavor of Unix-like system they're using, or are using a Unix-like system which doesn't fall into one of the other categories. Maybe they're using FreeBSD or soemthing. What is interesting is that only 50% are using Windows, and...

Re: [POLL] What Operating Systems do you use Wesnoth on?

Nope. we don't support Unix. I doubt there's enough people using a PDP-10 left to warrant the effort.
