For example, here I added a "TEST" at the beginning and the whole text is displayed.

In the campaign-selection screen, UtBS is the only campaign where the 'expert level, 11 scenarios'-text is missing.
Can this be added?
I have the same bug for "Under the Burning Suns" and "A Tale of Two Brothers", screenshots are attached. Windows 10, Wesnoth 1.14.6. I looked into the code and what is strange - the text is there. I modified the text and got a very strange results - sometimes the text is displayed when I add/remove a few letters, sometimes it is not displayed.
At my setup (Windows 10, Wesnoth 1.14.7), it is only missing when I play in the smallest resolution (800x600).
strange..

I have feedback but it's for the 1.14 version of UtBS and I hear it's been heavily reworked for 1.15... should I submit it anyways, or just not bother?

Wesnoth 1.14.16: Under the Burning Suns

Post by Altruist »

I've just finished the campaign, Under the Burning Suns, with the newest Wesnoth release 1.14.16, difficulty: challenging.

Actually, over the last 15? years, this was my third time I played the whole campaign. And I am as amazed as I was the very first time. The campaign has changed over the time, so each time there were new things to discover and to experience.

I might be the whatever hundreth saying so but nevertheless:
GREAT! What a fantastic campaign. All you who have worked on it over the years, thank you very much, really.

I didn't encounter a single bug.
Every scenario is made with much love to detail.
All 4 types of the Elvish Qenoth units seemed to me well rounded and useful and I used all 4 types from level 1 to 3/4. Most impressive the Quenoth Sun Sylphs: Arcane flying battleships.

The gimicks: holy water bottles, flaming blades, the way the main characters can upgrade, really adds spice and fun.
And I loved my little Dust Devil. I think, when in the next-to-last scenario my not so little Dust Devil anymore finally "bit the dust" probably my neighbours were able to hear the loud: "Nooooo!" but I resisted the urge to reload... which, by the way, as difficult as some scenarios might look like at the beginning, isn't necessary to get thru. Really well rounded and balanced. But the urge to reload was nevertheless strong quite often because I found myself really getting attached to many "units" which had become fully-flegded characters over the course of the campaign: good dialogs, good stories.

And what a great packed story in so few chapters.
I could go on highlighting the so many details and "little stories" within the story but I don't want to spoil.
An amazing campaign! There are lots of well made campaigns but Under the Burning Suns was and will probably stay my favourite.
