### Re: Finding Woodsman in Map Editor

EarthCake, here the down arrow does become green when the end of the list is reached. Can you describe how to get to a situation where the down arrow is yellow but at the end of the list?

Does it work if you change the resolution to 1280x800 in your preferences?
No, the Woodsman still isn't there.

If it were at the end of the list, the down arrow should have turned gray. So wesnoth thinks there are more units, but for some reason can't scroll to them.

Do you have any addons installed?

If you start an SP scenario and type :debug then mouse over an empty hex and type :create Woodsman, does it create a Woodsman on that hex?
As far as I know, I don't have any addons installed. When I did what you said, it created a Woodsman, but I still don't know how to add the Woodsman to oen of the recruit lists.

Btw, I'm playing on Microsoft Windows 10 (10.0.17134).
And here are part of my logs:

As a workaround to the UI issue, you can just add some other unit, save the scenario, exit wesnoth, and edit the scenario in notepad, change the id of whichever unit you used (say, Blood Bat) to Woodsman, then open the scenario in the map editor and continue.

Also, is it actually possible to edit recruit lists in the map editor? I know the editor can be used to place initial units (as in the first scenario of AToTB) but I didn't know it could set recruit lists.

That's probably related. It looks for a file whose name is one thousand spaces, and doesn't find it.

Can you check if the problem happens when you start wesnoth as wesnoth --noaddons?

@josteph, I have deinstalled my add-ons, and it seems that this error no longer reproduces. It looks like error causes some add-on.

Can you check if the problem happens when you start wesnoth as wesnoth --noaddons?
"The Reconquista - Meeting.cfg" is a scenario that I made myself on the Map Editor.
The folder

Code: Select all

C:\Users\caspe\Documents\My Games\Wesnoth1.14\data\add-ons
is empty, so I don't know where I would find any possible addons. Could you tell me how I can start wesnoth like wesnoth --noaddons ? I'm not that good with computers.
(Btw, thanks a lot already for taking the time to help me out, it means a lot to me.)

### Re: Finding Woodsman in Map Editor

Why don't you try to learn WML code if you weren't successful in finding it, and later add in recruit list for that leader that he can recruit Woodsman?

I don't use Windows, but broadly, create a shortcut to wesnoth, right click, choose properties, and in the box that says \foo\bar\baz\wesnoth.exe append --noaddons. If there are double quotes in there, add that word outside the double quotes. Someone using windows should be able to clarify.

Thanks for the help, I've been able to fix it by adding another unit to the recruit list and then changing that unit in the folder of the scenario to the Woodsman. When I click on properties, it only gives me this URL: steam://rungameid/599390, I think because I've got Wesnoth from Steam.
