When I changed what josteph said about unmounting.type, now units appears, but there is again lua error.

@josteph, thanks a lot, I will try your idea.

Also, great thanks to everyone who ever helped me in this topic (for before, now and always).

Divide and conquer. First make it so when a unit is reduced to 0HP, it doesn't die. Then make it so when a unit dies it changes to some other unit type, but hardcode which type that is. When that works, see about making different units transform to different types.

Also, when scenario finishes, and spearman that was horseman survived, how do I make him back to be horseman and have back his xp in next scenario?

How far have you got with Joseph's suggestion to divide and conquer? What's working and what's not?

Doing another change at the end of the scenario could be similar code, but it's a separate problem. First get the transformation in one direction working, then you'll have an already-working example for the transformation in the other direction.

Is there any way to make that one side has two leaders, which in the previous scenario were two heroes on one side, but that one leader can only recruit units, and another one can only recall units from previous scenarios. In next scenario they should be again on the same side, that one leader can both recruit and recall units from previous scenario(s).

Legend of Wesmere does that and more - in single player mode you have three leaders, of whom Kalenz and Landar can recruit and recall the non-fairy elves, and Cleodil does the woses and fairies.

There's a single recall list, using per-character [filter_recall], and the recruitment is handled by per-character extra_recruit lists.

Cleodil joins in scenario 4. The per-character defines are in utils/characters.cfg and the definitions of ELVES_STEEL and ELVES_NON_STEEL are in utils/low-macros.cfg.

What is this about?

Code: Select all

The following add-on had errors and could not be loaded:
   ~/.config/wesnoth-1.14/data/add-ons/Under_a_Single_Banner/_main.cfg

Please report this to the author or maintainer of this add-on.

Details:

    Found filename containing whitespace: '06_The_ Elvish_Capital.cfg' in included directory '~/.config/wesnoth-1.14/data/add-ons/Under_a_Single_Banner/scenarios'.
    The included symbol probably looks similar to '/add-ons/Under_a_Single_Banner/scenarios'
    at ~add-ons/Under_a_Single_Banner/_main.cfg:-1

Is there something firing the help_walkthroughs_check event?

@Pentarctagon, thanks, I created this:

Code: Select all

#define GLOBAL_EVENTS
	[event]
		name=start
        	[set_menu_item]
			# Please don't ask what is this for.
            		id=9help
            		description=_"Walkthroughs"
            		[command]
                            	[fire_event]
                                	name=help_walkthroughs_check
                            	[/fire_event]
			[/command]
		[/set_menu_item]
	[/event]
#enddef [code]
and put {GLOBAL_EVENTS} in scenario, but now it doesn't fire event help_walkthroughs_check.
