Re: Add a bell to indicate party is full

IMO this is a really good idea.

Questions about "order of events" in wesnoth

The wiki documents here EventWML#Event_IDs a useful technique for removing events so that they don't happen. However some details are not entirely clear. In a practical instance there was a "prestart" event (coming from a source other than the scenario) which I wanted to catch, cancel, and then fire...

Re: How to get information about the era in WML?

Not sure whether the following is what you're looking for... This is from data/multiplayer/scenarios/2p_Hornshark_Island.cfg: Thanks for this, this is a very nice technique which I have now used in a few places. But you're right it isn't exactly what I'm looking for. I can be a bit more concrete ab...

Re: Captain's Mode

How can I make this work with a different era? Edit: Before anyone gets confused, to play Captain's mode with default era units you can just use default era. If you want to play with e.g. default + kalifate or ageless or something you will have make a special era, as I describe now. Because of limi...

Captain's Mode

A few days ago I was inspired to make a new add-on to enhance your 1v1 multiplayer experience. Presenting Captain's Mode What is it? "It's like PYRA, but different." Like PYRA , (and predecessor PYR ), you get to pick what units you can recruit. However in Captain's mode, rather than picking whateve...

Re: Rushed By Yetis

Yeah so I could write such an era without much difficulty; the way I imagined to make it work would be like Get a yeti Get all allies of this yeti, check what factions they have, and replace him and any allied yetis one by one without repeating factions (basically just do the existing no mirror thin...

Re: A question about thief-fencer balance

Edit: I'm not a pro either but here's my two cents. Fencers and Thieves may look similar in terms of stats in some sense but it doesn't really make sense to compare them head on in this way, imho. The reason is that they play very different roles in their factions. As you point out fencers can do so...

Re: Rushed By Yetis

Hi, Rushed By Yetis v1.10.22 is out now. The changes are: The maps Clearing Gushes and Scarred Foothills work now, fixing bug I found 3 weeks ago. No more popups asking you to save an empty replay if you have the "save replay on SP/MP victory/defeat" option checked in your preferences. Rewrote the r...

Re: Move battle calculations to WML/LUA

Edit: Actually, what I wrote is only slightly relevant. I haven't played Dugi's add-on, but I remember something like this happens in Mabuse's SXRPG add-on if the game goes very late. If really big units with many attacks (and usually berserk) start a fight the "calculate statistics" info can become...

How to get information about the era in WML?

Is there any way to get the information in the era tag, (or for that matter, in any other high level tag,) into variables in WML? I'm looking for something like "[store_multiplayer_sides]" which would give an array of factions in this era, but lacking this is there some kind of workaround?

Re: A question about the interface

The second post was because of new information, and to make it easier to read. Just trying to report problems in a helpful way, sorry if it came off as demanding or anything like that. I was not trying to suggest that I was not getting a timely response from devs, just that none of the other forum v...

Possible Design Flaw / Bug relating to TOD display

One week and more than a hundred views later with no responses, it seems that there is no known workaround to the problem I mentioned here (http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=39388). Therefore I am classifying it as a design flaw / bug. (There is no associated error message; if it is a bu...

Re: Replays analyser

And this is the main reason I'm making this thread for: how can a bot tell who won from a replay? I'm not an experienced player so my ideas may be too naive (like comparing kills of each side, if no leader was defeated). Does anyone have an idea for an algorithm that decides who side has won?

Re: RBY Unofficial Patch

Ok, I don't know what will happen now if I delete the patch from the add-on server, will that automatically delete it for all the users? I decided to update the patch so that now it puts a note saying that it is Obsolete and to use v 1.10.21 of the RBY add-on instead.

A question about the interface

Hi, I've been playing wesnoth for about 6-7 months. I'm writing because I think there might be some obscure interface trick that everyone knows but me about how to get info about the time of day bonuses for tiles with special time of day effects. The basic issue: Everyone knows that if you mouse ove...
