Re: How do I save random maps for re-use?

The game and the Map Editor came together in the same download. I just tried the Map Editor for a few seconds and it seems to work fine. Will somebody out there try to save a random map using the Save Map feature, please? It's under the EDITOR pulldown menu, which is available once the battle begins...

Re: How do I save random maps for re-use?

Thanks, I saw that, but it was grayed-out. In fact, everything under the EDITOR pulldown menu is grayed-out. I don't know why. :(

How do I save random maps for re-use?

Sometimes Battle for Wesnoth generates brilliant random maps, maps that I want to use again and again. "Save Game in round 1" is not what I have in mind, as I want the ability to choose different factions and Eras before I play.

Is there a way to open a random map in the map editor?

Thanks,
Helmet

Re: You VS the Computer! Share your favorite battle settings

This one pits the Knalgan Alliance against the Northerners. Pick a fair, balanced-looking random map with some hills and mountains somewhere in the middle or off to the side. Your enemy, the Northerns, benefit by an extra 100 gold, so the first several rounds are tough, as the Northerner's units wil...

Re: You VS the Computer! Share your favorite battle settings

Tip: Choose your random map and then adjust the settings (height, width, etc.), BEFORE you adjust Number of Turns, Village Gold and Experience Modifier. Otherwise, if you do it the other way around, the Number of Turns, Village Gold and Experience Modifer will RESET to the previous settings as soon ...

We play via the "Join official server" option. He clicks "Create Game" and then I join his game. We just installed 1.2.2 and it did the same thing as before. :( I play with the Mac version and he plays with the Windows version. Could that be the culprit behind the problem? Different platforms?

Bummer. The codes didn't work. When my friend typed in, "control 4 Helmet" he got a message saying Helmet was now Player 4, but I didn't get the message and I couldn't control Player 4. Yet when I looked at the game stats, it listed Helmet as player 2 and 4! Also, after he gave me control of Player ...

2 Leaders per player over the internet?

Me and my buddy play Wesnoth over the internet and wonder if this is possible: Could we each have 2 Leaders in a game? We tested a couple roundabout ways of making it work, but neither experiment worked. We want to play a BIG map of our own creation and think it would be nifty if we each controlled ...

Hey, it working! We just tried restarting a saved game and it's working. We're both pretty sure we did exactly what we did before, only it worked this time. Nifty! Thanks for the help. Maybe we had been doing something wrong the previous times. We had been doing what people said we should do, before...

Thanks for the replies. We tried re-starting from a saved game several times, but the game didn't reconnect on the server. To be clear, when I loaded a saved game, he couldn't join it. When he loaded the saved game, I couldn't join it. We couldn't get the saved game back online and functional. I cou...

Multi-session internet games? Possible or not?

Me and a distant friend play Wesnoth online, playing each other on the server. A couple times our games were stopped because of a disconnection. Is there a way to restart a game? Also, is there a way to save an internet game, so that we can battle on a big map over the course of several sessions, pi...

Re: New Randomness !!!

Personally, I'm a new player and I love the all-or-nothing approach to damage. For example, I thinks it's great how a Wose is always going to deliver a massive smackdown to a Walking Corpse instead of a random amount of damage that might result in only 1 hp of harm. And I love how when a Wose misses...
