WML child missing error when loading map

Post by FluffyBunny » June 10th, 2017, 3:22 am

So this is my first time using the forums.... Anyways I made a map using the map editor and did some coding with it to try and make a survival map type. I love survival maps and there don't seem to be many. Took me forever to figure out how to get a unit to spawn at a certain point at a certain time, but now after a bit more coding and what not, the map gives me "WML child missing error" and wont let me load it. Please help, I have played this game for years and absolutely love it and want to contribute by making fun survival maps but looks like i need a bit more help.

_main.cfg

Like i said any help appreciated, this is all the coding I have for it, if you want me to submit the actual files I will do that when I get back. Please pick it apart any help is appreciated!

I'll admit, I didn't pick apart your code, but I just wanted to note that

should be fleshed out some more. Report the entire error message(s). (Also, what version Wesnoth are you using?)

Right sorry, Wesnoth 1.12.6, and ("Mandatory WML child missing yet untested for. Please Report.") is the exact error. Its just I really want to make survival scenarios like "Dark Forecast" or team survival (you get the point) and I learned some basics of WML coding from the WML tutorial that walks you through making a simple campaign. My buddy and I successfully made our first scenario and whatnot for that campaign but I cant seem to find a tutorial or anything like how to make multiplayer maps what the Main.cfg needs to be like and nothing as detailed as the campaign tutorial.

I think you've confused the engine. You can't define two attributes in a single line like this: fog=yes shroud=no. There is a way to do it, but it looks like this: fog,shroud=yes,no. See if fixing those lines makes it work.

Nah, we discussed it on Discord and that was not it. It was the extraneous [multiplayer] in _main.cfg containing what the engine saw as incomplete information for an MP scenario.
