Re: Eine Geschichte zweier Brüder - Vertonung und Sprachkunst

Ich hab auch mal ein paar Tracks aufgenommen. Da ich nicht unbedingt im Sprechen trainiert bin, und bspw. beim "sch" etwas komisch klinge, hab ich mich erstmal an ein paar Nebenrollen probiert, Greve Horban, Tairach und verschiedene Söldner/Reiter. Bei den Söldnern ist natürlich das Problem, dass ma...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

If Wesnoth becomes popular enough for that to be a problem, then that could be an option. Otherwise, it's silly to have such a page when it would currently be almost entirely blank. The same could be said of adding a sub-forum. There is zero cost to adding such a page. I could do it in less than 5 ...

Re: Would it be OK to publish an era that uses sprites for units from a 1995 SNES game?

> Old SNES games have in been in de facto public domain for two decades at least. I guess it depends on what jurisdiction you can rely on. Actually it doesn't. There is no real "de facto public domain". Either it is PD, because the copyrights have run out or for other reasons, or it is not. (These ...

Re: Is anyone interested in having the game translated to Arabic?

I think one of the main reasons to play the game in a native (non English) language is lack of the required level of English. And people with insufficient knowledge of English are unlikely to (regularly) read these forums. So, your target audience may simply not read your question. Maybe there is a...

Re: Unit genders

Level-1 would have to be a copy of a human mage in stats so as not to affect the balance, but I don't think higher levels would have to be. Wouldn't this unit at least have to have an elvish moving profile and forest defense? And how would this effect the balance on its own? I'd think, a human mage...

Re: Archers and Range

Ok, there is a person, who hasn't played a single campaign, just the tutorial, and wants to tell us, that all the basic concepts of the game are wrong, because they are different from his favourite game. Also he tells us, that chess, for example, is obviously not a tactical game, because it's part o...

Re: Poll: Do you reload usually if you lost your valuable high-level unit because of a strike of unluck?

Yes, that question is kind of stupid. Of course there are units, you are basically not allowed to lose without making the campaign harder or even impossible to beat, be it important loyals or other restricted unit types. When that happens, I often go on playing and afterwards start the scenario from...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

I assure you, no one there ever cried about RNG. […] Just google "civilization rng" and try to find if there persons who do not like Civ's RNG. Well, maybe you should've done that first… :mrgreen: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/rng-civs-detractor.65359/ https://forums.civfanatics.com/thread...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

We already passed this. People do not complain on RNG in general, they complain on Wesnoth RNG and mention that RNG is other games is not broken compared to Wesnoth RNG. You can study google results for it. So it is incorrect to mark people who do not like Wesnoth RNG as some silly people who alway...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

I don't get what's the point. Some people don't like randomness. (At least whenever it turns against them.) That's fair. But I don't see reducing randomness in this way as a possible solution. The reason those people get annoyed sometimes is obviously, that they neglect the chance of events to happe...

Re: BfW is a game that relies on save-scumming too much

I don't find anything wrong in RNGs, but it would really help if the rolls would be more consistent. Too often I saw streaks of unreallistics hits or misses. Well, the rolls are consistently random. And there are a lot of it. During the course of an average scenario there're probably around 100 bat...

Re: Shouldn't a STONE CASTLE provide more defense than a wooden palisade?

AS the thread name implies. I find it odd they have the exact same defense values What about villages? Shouldn't "dwarven-style" stone villages get better protection than ordinary wooden villages? And shouldn't villages with straw roofs be especially vulnerable to fire attacks? Of course, they coul...

Re: 1.14 on Debian

Any idea when the Debian folks will offer 1.14? I've only installed Deb a few weeks back so I'm not willing to try out the backport that is available. It's been a decade and a half since I used Linux so I'm keeping it simple which means only the gui software installers available... If you really do...

Re: Moremiru's only trait is Loyal. Is this intentional?

-Moremiru's only trait is Loyal. Is this intentional? It certainly is. The trait system's main purpose is not to make units better, but to bring a little bit of variety into otherwise identical units. Whenever you create special units as a campaign author, you have the choice, if you want to assign...
