There is a nightly flatpak you could use: https://wiki.wesnoth.org/WesnothBinariesLinux#Flatpak
Thanks, I'll try that :-)

Re: Stuck on Descent into Darkness-Orc War

The person who got me into Linux has stopped speaking to me and yay got deprecated. With my memory and focus problems I need to post in the Arch forums to get help fixing my pacman.

Not especially soon, most likely. What OS are you on though?
Arch Linux. The issue isn't on your end; I need to fix my update script.

Re: Stuck on Descent into Darkness-Orc War

The changelog so far for the next development release can be found at https://changelog.wesnoth.org. The changelog so far for the next stable release can then be found by changing the "Branch: master" dropdown to "Branch: 1.14". As far as the DiD rebalance, I'm not sure. nemaara here on the forums ...

Re: Strong mages/shamans/etc.

In my opinion resilient is the worst trait. 3 hitpoints more than strong is kind of a joke in my view, except maybe to mitigate the penalty on quick units. Resilient is 4+level-1, so a level 3 unit has 5 points more than strong, not 3. A level 4 (great mage etc.) has 6. It makes a difference pretty...

Re: Strong mages/shamans/etc.

If my mages/shamans are attacking or being attacked in melee, I'm doing something wrong - the trait is almost entirely useless for them, I tend to think that strong isn't that bad on shamans. I'd rather say, if your shamans aren't ever attacked in melee, you probably don't use them to their full ex...

A different way to look at the Intelligent trait (SP)

Yes, a L3 Intelligent unit is generally less powerful (albeit marginally) than one with a different appropriate trait. But consider it from a different angle: There's only so much XP, realistically speaking, to go around. The more Intelligent units you have, the further that stretches, and the deepe...

In-game encyclopedia organization, search function

I make frequent reference to the in-game encyclopedia (F1 help), and the lack of a search function is rather aggravating. I also think the units should have two organization indexes, one by race, one by faction; and also a quick reference near the top for your current faction, adjusted as appropriat...

Strong mages/shamans/etc.

Sorry if this is an old/oft-tread topic; I'm relatively new to the game. Strong mages/shamans/etc. aggravate me to no end, to the point where I will sometimes start a scenario over if I get one. (Dark Adepts are potentially an exception if I plan to use necromancers' plague staffs extensively.) If m...

Re: Stuck on Descent into Darkness-Orc War

I think I might start writing new walkthroughs for some of this stuff, but I'm not a good enough player to do it real justice. Who might I work with to do a better job?

Currently 1.15.3 is scheduled for Sunday, March 8th, 00:00 UTC.
I'm new to the forums/community, though I've been playing on and off for years; could you direct me to the proper links for the DiD rebalance and 1.15.3 changes please?

Much appreciated <3

Re: Stuck on Descent into Darkness-Orc War

100-900 xp for improved resistances or improved damage or an ability (for example something that heals him or deals damage to surrounding enemies). It only went up to 852 xp for the last special improvement. Do note though, that this was before the last rebalancing of DiD (which might actually come...

Re: Stuck on Descent into Darkness-Orc War

I've been building a super-Ghast (Gogmagog). He's up to +15ish max HP :p Drogans Ghast can receive AMLAs. Seems like a waste though. What is it, 150ish XP for 3 HP and a full-heal? I just feed them level 0's and 1's and let other troops get the serious XP. Ghasts get a lot more out of low level kil...
