hello

Post by negal112 »

Hello, i'm negal112 and i'm new on the forums. I have decided to start playing this again, but the last time i played was on version 1.2.5, so i would like to ask if anyone here could tell me what major changes have happen since then? I'm downloading 1.8.4 now and can't wait to see how much the game has improved over the last few years.

Also see the text file "Players Changelog" that comes in the game's main folder, it has a description of the noticeable changes that would affect the average player, whereas the complete changelog can be a bit overwhelming to read, since it lists every little detail.

A later issue of that scene involves the orcish assassin rolling around on the floor in fits of maniacal laughter.

I believe it has something to do with balance changes made around 1.3.12
I guess mermen and some loyalists got nerfed or something.

I had seen that comic before when I was just a toddler newbie forumer, but I never got to know it was referencing any actual events, as in Ken_Oh's quoted portion of the changelog. That makes it slightly more funny I guess.

In any case, the author should have considered using a nearest neighbor filter for scaling the sprites instead.
Author of the unofficial UtBS sequels Invasion from the Unknown and After the Storm (now available for Wesnoth 1.14.x and 1.15.4+).

This comic needs to get another issue for 1.9 involving the new ghast-sprite/attack animation... along the lines "Who's that guy... whaaaa!"
