edit button... :wink:
about the stderr.txt file... when you open the battle for wesnoth folder one of the files in that folder is stderr (right in the battle for wesnoth folder so you dont have to go searching in other folders to find it thank goodness)
stderr will show you all of your errors that you have in the game and usually states them with more detail and plus since it is a text file you can copy and paste on to the forums so people can tell you what your error means! it is very helpful :D

Ah, okay. Can't find it, but ah well, the campaign is actually loading, even though some messages aren't working. :P I'll figure that out. :) Hopefully, lol.

Code: Select all

      type=Red Mage
      name= _ "male^Tylre"
      id=Tyler
      gender=male
      unrenamable=yes
Tyler should be Tylre. You probably know this but "speaker=" looks for the unit with the same id.

Code: Select all

      [message]
            speaker=Tylre
            message= _ "Tis dark and gloomy in this cavern. Let us hope we can see well enough to walk."
      [/message]
Also, you use unrenamable twice in the definition of side 2. It won't hurt anything, but it's not necessary.

Code: Select all

      team_name=Enemy   
      unrenamable=yes
Unrenamable only works on unit names. Team name can't be modified by a player anyway.

Code: Select all

name= _ “male^Tylre”
Does nothing. Just remove the male^.

Code: Select all

{DEFAULT_MUSIC “underground.ogg”}
That's a non-existant macro. Use {DEFAULT_MUSIC_PLAYLIST} or {SCENARIO_MUSIC underground.ogg}.

In that case, his problems were probably because it was an ancient tutorial.

But it sure wasn't the main tutorial on Wesnoth -> Create -> Scenarios.
I would recommend the above to new scenario authors.

I think I looked at that, but I used The Final Exam as a tutorial. It's an add-on that comes with a tutorial.

The Final Exam is kind of outdated, and hard to use. Try the Wesnoth-Create-etc. or a Simple Campaign, add-on on 1.8 server by Anonymissus for a campaign framework to use.
