Re: SX RPG ADD ON 3.9.99x - now on 1.10.0 Server.

HP increases max mana, besides certain items. This will take a large number of turns to accumulate.




edit: Sorry. There is no way currently to have 5 units play on one turn. The games are balanced around the fact that each hero must go one turn at a time, followed by the enemies' turns.

Re: What is the appeal of a rogue-like game?

One, and only one, of my friends likes/doesn't mind the ASCII. He also has an incredible memory. For the rest of us people who don't instantly remember everything we see, the tile set helps tremendously. Even tiles made up of 8x8 or 16x16 pixels is enough to tell the difference between a mushroom, a...

Giant armor spiders is WoW2 were not handled by no luck in the replay with Zeus and I.

Hi Lester,
Hopefully we can get a 5p game sometime.

Re: SXRPG Replays

Zeus and I beat WoW2 with 2 heroes on Experienced. I was a Paladin Rogue Mage, Neutral, Cave Diver at 1p. Zeus was a Cleric Ghoul, Chaotic (fearless is free), cave diver at 2p. We ended up beating it on turn 92 or 93. We beat this over several days, playing after work. It is an interesting replay be...

Re: SX RPG ADD ON 3.9.93h - now on 1.10.0 Server.

Why is rogue class called rogue class in sxrpg? i ask because the is no rogue special or ability in it like backstabb,poison,nightstalk,suprise,skirmish. current rogue is just a OP version of warrior or mage. With high knowledge, someone like me can make a rogue mage look OP versus a cleric. This i...

Re: SX RPG ADD ON 3.9.93h - now on 1.10.0 Server.

Potential bug with the Ranger:
A unit already had a magical ranged attack and bought Precision. Ending up with a 'Magical Precision' weapon, which I suppose is either worse or better than Precision depending on how the numbers play out.

Re: SX RPG ADD ON 3.9.93h - now on 1.10.0 Server.

Solo is easier than 5 players. I would consider 5 players on experienced or expert mode to be a job well done and I would never question this player's experience. But some people just like to play for fun and that is good, because it is a very fun map, and only gets better the more focused a player ...

Those classes require experienced and expert difficulty to be selected.

Re: SXRPG Replays

SX RPG WoW2 Experienced and death mode (Probably about equivalent my previous 'expert' mode run before the updates in wesnoth 1.8) I fixed the replay and I watched it to turn 35+ without a hitch so far. Paladin: Rogue Mage, Cave Walker, Mega Regen, agility, soul stealer, magic movement, and dauntles...

Re: SX RPG ADD ON 3.9.93h - now on 1.10.0 Server.

Rogue Mage may go melee simply because the class has magic movement. Losing Berserk would certainly cause one to think twice about picking a Rogue Mage over a Rogue Warrior.

Re: SX RPG ADD ON 3.9.93h - now on 1.10.0 Server.

To start with Bubu's bug, he had disconnected, so we just ended his first turn. He was probably 4p.
Then Bubu rejoined and shopped on turn 2.
