How to create a .pbl file?

Post by Drizzl »

Hello,

Wesnoth wiki says that you need a _server.pbl file to upload a campaign. But how do you create a .pbl file? Do you need programs like PowerBuilder or is there also a simpler way?

Pbl files can be written in the same plain text editor as cfg files, nothing fancy needed. Here is the documentation for what keys need to go into it. There's also an example at the bottom of the page.

It needs to be _server.pbl rather than _server.pbl.txt.

I do not know what I did differently this time, but now it is a .pbl file. Thanks for the quick help.
