Re: What you should know to make your campaign easy to trans

how do you handle cases where you don't know the gender of the person speaking (e.g. in a sighted event) and the translation differs if it's male or female (like in most slavic languages)? a) I complain to the campaign author. :lol2: b) I try to rephrase the sentence so that the substituted word ap...

Re: Want to become a developer. Where to start?

OK, guys, this is so much Frequently Asked Question, that it probably deserves a wiki page where we can link whenever there is a need. We can still discuss specific details in forum that can be added to wiki later. " Python or Perl? " " How to learn developing? " " What was ...

Re: Osama Bin Laden is Dead

Getting Dubya to take the bait and invade, crippled us a nation in a way that no bomb ever could. They've essentially fooled us into squandering resources on a wild goose chase and making enemies with the rest of the world. Islamic nations hate our guts, much of the rest of the world isn't fond of ...

Re: Level up to... same level?

Curious question for developers:


It is possible to make a unit choose between levelling to another unit type and AMLA?

If the unit chooses AMLA, and next time it chooses to become another unit type, are the effects of AMLA (more HP, more XP required) still valid for the new unit type?

Re: Osama Bin Laden is Dead

American Army killed Osama because he killed innocent people in 9/11. But what happens next? Another fanatic will start killing because Osama got killed. Etc, etc. Mathematically speaking, if you kill one person per 3000 dead on your side, and if the other side keeps the same revenge ratio, the ven...

Re: Wesnoth 1.9.5

The best you can do for French translations is bring more French translators to the project. :eng:

[interface] Warning for incompletely translated campaigns

Target: Mainline campaigns. (Possibly extendable for some UMC.) Problem description: When a campaign is not fully translated to some language, and when the player does not understand English well, depending on the untranslated strings it may make the campaign unplayable. Even worse, this problem can...

Re: Wesnoth 1.9.5

it is very strange because sometimes it's in french and sometimes in english ! I mean in the same scenario, the same game, i've got words in french and other words in english. In campaigns each phrase is translated independently. So if the translation is not 100% completed, this is what you usually...

Re: Level up to... same level?

You can advance to any level, AFAIK. Advancement is just a... hyperlink... from one unit type to another.

The "level" is just a number assigned to unit type to calculate upkeep (for unit owner) and XP gain (for enemy). It also plays role in calculating leadership bonus.

Re: Wesnoth 1.9.5

The last available campaign named "Les mémoires de Delfeador" (Delfeador's memories, i think, in english) has been created for a quite long time now but it is still not traduced in French. Looking at translation statistics, "wesnoth-dm" in version 1.8.5 is fully translated. This...

Re: Did you finish your first game?

I don't remember. It was cca 20 years ago. I remember finishing some games (some of them are still on my disk, though not the earlier ones), but I can't tell if they were the first ones. My first games I remember were: - a card memory game (each player looks at 2 cards, if you find a pair you take i...

Re: insane campaign replays

I once produced a 3 minutes long video and it required a few GB of free disk space during production... but I thought it was only because I do not understand it, so maybe I used wrong tools or wrong settings. (I do not remember the tool I used, but it was some free software.) Seems to me that the sc...

Re: insane campaign replays

Just an idea:

It could be nice to make a step-by-step tutorial on wiki about how to record your replay as a movie and upload it to YouTube. This way, everyone could enjoy replays from the old versions withotu having to install anything. ;-)
