Still working on adapting it to 1.9, but I was wondering if people had any suggestions regarding the story. I've got it all laid out, but now I need to fine tune it.

Muahahahaha! The 1.9 server thought it was free from me, but no! I have successfully updated Tale of a Mage for 1.9 in v1.0.2.

Just a little note from my playthrough of TOAM. When you recall the apprentice mages, they turn up as full mages. When I check the unit description, they're mages, but in reality, they're still apprentices. They level up into mages, despite being mages already. Xp, attacks, hp, all of those are exactly as they were at apprentice mage level.

When you fix this you can now in 1.9 use
[modify_unit]
[filter]
type=Apprentice Mage
[/filter]
type=Mage
[/modify_unit]
Current downside is xp will forcefully be set to 0. All other attributes are supposed to change (or not change) correctly.

Which version was this?

I think that works for now, in the 1.9 version. Thanks.

Getting a few bugs in it on wesnoth 1.9.6.

1st scenario 1st turn: <WML> Error: empty side= and no [filter_side] is deprecated

Same error occurs on turn 3 when the bandits arrive

Then at the start of scenario 3 (where they've informed Lord whatshisname) getting a major bug that causes it to crash:

An error due to possibly invalid WML occurred
The error message is:
Invalid value in the result key for [end_level]

It goes on to state that when reporting the bug to include the following:

Condition 'result.empty() || result == "victory" || result == "defeat" failed at src\game_events.cpp:2235 in
function 'wml_func_endlevel'. Extra development issue: result = 'continue_no_save'.

When I click OK it returns me to the main menu.

This was set deprecated in 1.9.6, it's still perfectly valid in 1.9.5. Also, in an other thread I was assured by developers, that despite deprecation, it will be kept working looooong long time yet.

I wouldn't bother much about it, until some time (after it's out) you decide to port to 1.10.x

Hey,

You should change the rank of this to something greater than 400. It currently shows up amongst the mainline campaigns in the Campaign menu, I almost overlooked it. (BfW 1.9.9)
BfW 1.12 supported, but active development only for BfW 1.13/1.14: Bad Moon Rising | Trinity | Archaic Era |
| Abandoned: Tales of the Setting Sun
GitHub link for these projects

This can be corrected simply by putting 'result=victory' in the [end_level] tags. I did that and they campaign went on smoothly.

The error is caused by the removal of the "AMLA_TOUGH" macro since wesnoth 1.9.7. It can be fixed by replacing "AMLA_TOUGH" with "AMLA_DEFAULT" in two custom unit files. SkeleRanger may have other solutions as well.
I upload the fixed version 1.0.3 here.

I'm trying to play this campaign in version 1.10.3 but i have a problem. At the end of 4th level, 00_4_Regrets, i have this error:
<<Valore non valido nella chiave [end_level]>>
i have the italian version but i think this could be a good translate:
<<invalid value in [end_level] key>>.
this is also another information that is shown by the game when the error occurs:
Condition 'result.empty() || result="victory" || result="defeat" failed at src/game_events.cpp:2398 in function 'wml_func_endlevel' Extra development information result='continue'
Do u have any suggests?

Guessing wildly...search for a tag named [endlevel] in the scenario's cfg file where this occurs (hopefully there's only one), and change the (probably)
result='continue
line to
result=victory
(and add a save=no line, but not neccessary)

There was a change in the engine some time ago that only victory and defeat are supported.

I don't know anything about how development is administrated here but I'm correcting these errors as I go along in the campaign.

If anyone is interested in these fixes, let me know.
