Re: Save games not loading (stable and development)

I've disabled the compressing of save games but the problem persists.

I like the second solution. More potential = better.

Re: Save games not loading (stable and development)

Great, I'll try that. Will I have to start the campaign over again?

Re: Save games not loading (stable and development)

The loading bar proceeds about halfway along, and then flickers and stops roughly in the middle. No further progress takes place, and if you click on wesnoth it greys out and presents me with a "wesnoth.exe has stopped responding" message. Edit: A picture is worth a thousand words: http://...

Save games not loading (stable and development)

I was first using 1.7.4 to play through delfadors memoirs and when delf finally died on what I think was the third scenario, I was unable to reload. Fair enough, this is a beta - and the same thing happened with NR too. Since I was quite interested in NR, playing it for the first time, and there was...

Re: Fire-Forged Friends

I like this campaign a lot. One small niggle is the saurian with a blanket, though - lizards don't have internal heating.

Re: Vampires in Wesnoth

Then again our vampires don't need to be undead as they are already very similar to lichs. I'd like us to work out some more actual differences. In terms of the game, I think it would be best if they /were/ undead - I can't see a vampire dying of poison, can you? Except that they would die of starv...

Re: Vampires in Wesnoth

2. Vampires in real life mythology aren't very well defined. They're a nebulous, many-faceted concept. There are contradictory myths about them. If you're Malaysian, then a vampire might be a woman who's (mostly) disembodied head flies around at night trailing her guts, who uses said guts to strang...

Re: Wesnoth Fan Fiction - Caves Of Gold

Your first chapter, if it is a chapter, is more than a little brisk. You go straight through and describe a basic plot without any room for real description. It doesn;t exactly breed suspense. The second chapter is much the same. If I can read an account of the battle in half a minute, it's not real...

They can. One of Orcish Shyde's campaigns allows you to fight with both the Darken Volk lookalike side and Asheviere in the second scenario, as I recall.

Re: Hurt and Heal: Campaign Boss Villains (SPOILERS!)

I have yet to see a campaign where elves as baddies have not been petty, often with no casus belli except "they're in our forest!", although you do get the occasional mercenary.

Re: Why Elvish Sorceress can't heal?

I don't know if Kalenz is "good", exactly. He's less fettered by the biases of his race as a young elf but he seems at times lackadaisical (his reaction to Landar) but he seems somewhat petty in the events of HttT. He's certainly not a paragon of virtue for its own sake - but then, elves i...

Re: Advice on improvement? (replay)

Rather than make my own topic, I figured I'd use this to ask for the same thing - advice to improve with. I did win, but there were a few moves I didn't see which could have helped me (like when on the penultimate turn I was attacking with the horseman instead of cavalryman) so I'd appreciate tips. ...
