Chieftain Granak(v0.01)

Abandoned and removed from the server as I have no time and enthusiasm to work further on the project and make it into a satisfying state. Original post: This is the feedback thread for the campaign Chieftain Granak. The story is about an Orcish tribe leader refusing to join a chieftain, therefore g...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

I played github version to the middle of chapter 2(Darkness Closing In). No bug except for incompatibility with SP mods. The major problem is that Wesnoth 1.14 seems to have introduced performance problem, especially when you fight in a 80x80 map with hundreds of units. I would recommend the 1.12 ve...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

You could help him out by making him create a forum account so he can ask for advice in the right forum parts. One needs to be at least 13 years old for a forum account IIRC. As he loves designing levels (particularly in Portal 2), he's created a map and is now in the midst of trying to create a sc...

Re: Peace Disturbance - My first campaign

There are good reasons why most MP games are for 3 or less players. The game would be of larger scales than it's supposed to, and therefore often last too long. It's unfun to wait for other players, and if one player quit the whole party is ruined. So it's not recommended to have 4p maps bigger than...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

It can function. But IIRC Dugi said something can be broken because of debug mode, maybe duplicated AMLA options?

If you think the solution is ugly, you can hide it behind a config macro like WC2 did with the setting of allowing alien era.

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

The campaign is incompatible with most mods in 1.14 because when a [object] is removed, it would force the game to re-calculate the unit stats from the standard value of their unit_types, ignoring the items. I think a quick solution is to give user an menu_item option to fire the event of "update_st...

Re: A New Land Like Maps

There is an add-on called Undead Empire IIRC, but probably not ported to 1.14.

Re: The Three Sisters Saga (SP campaign for 1.14)

The hard difficulty looks impossible. In the first scenario, if the player retreats and defends by the river, the enemy would group up and refuse to initiate attacks. Then the time is not enough. In the 2nd scenario, the ally just get massacred before the player can go in. And there is just too litt...

The Dungeon(SP/MP Scenario on 1.12)

This scenario offers gameplay similar to Dimaga Beach, in the sense that most enemies stick to their positions until you move into their ranges, and your goal is to progress through them and kill the Master of the dungeon in the end. The dungeon uses a random sequence of dungeon levels, every time y...

Re: Wesnoth strategy puzzles

One way I can see this work is if you make a scenario where players can do several challenges repetitive. The number of total tries can be taken as scores.

Create overlay from core images.

I guess it's possible to create overlays from existing core images. For example, you can take the items/potion-red.png, shrink it and put it at the corner.

I'm not sure if anyone has done similar things through image path functions WML. Is there any codes that I can borrow?

Re: A Sangine Tale (Ani's Legacy, Ani's Quest)

It's not about being a bad guy. Mindra's mother killed Anea's grandma, so she doesn't feel very helpful to me. It feels like some ugly surprise awaits.

Ah, but have you found the secret battle?
No. As you have seen, I've never chosen Mindra. It just doesn't make sense to choose Elf after that prologue.
