It seems as though our recent Password Recovery feature is missing on the ladder page (since it went down the other night?)

We are currently working on fixing this. For any others needing assistance feel free to contact me either here, on the ladder forums, or in game, thanks.

Hi there!

If you are using linux, you can find the preferences file here:

~/.config/wesnoth/preferences

Welcome to the ladder, see you on the server sometime.

On Windows, the preferences file is stored in your userdata directory. Note that the file uses Unix lineendings, so it won't display properly in NotePad - use WordPad some other more advanced program to edit it.

I chose "Store userdata in the install location", so its not there too :)

Also, i perfectly understand where the folder with the game is.

I just cannot find preferences file with friends list in it.

What is the exact name of the file please? Version 1.10.6

Thanks for helping guys.

Try changing some preferences, from the game start screen, and then open the userdata directory.
It should show up, as I can see 'preferences' file in my userdata folder on windows as well.

I've been getting a lot of PMs about people cheating on the ladder lately and therefore been banning a lot of accounts

Feel free to PM me here or email me if you find cheaters on the ladder, thanks

:hmm: Clearly there's fewer active players than there once were, and many vets are now inactive, although many are still around / make reappearances. But on the other hand, there were 25 ranked games played in the last two days, so it's hard to call it "dead". There are still new faces appearing regularly also.

Are you sure you are on the right server? On the official 1.10 server, I played two ladder games today and finished a reloaded one from a few days ago, and there were like maybe a dozen in total I think.

It's true that there is not always an active ladder game but there is almost always some ladder player online, although they might not want to start a game then. Sometimes you have to pm people to ask them for a game.

Generally my impression is it's more active in the GMT PM hours than the AM hours, roughly, you would have to look at the ladder game history to judge for yourself I guess.
