Hi, sorry to ask so silly question, but I want to play this campaign, and I don't know, how to execute it. I don't find it, in the 1.8 add-ons server.
Thanks for help

Haven't been around for a while...

You can't find it on a 1.8 server, since I haven't updated it to 1.8.
I've been all over the place these last few months, with work and traveling kinda draining my will to mod... Note that I have been modding, but mostly other games, but these last 2 months have been utterly awful (friggin forum addiction)!

I have about a dozen projects lying around, all barely moving and it irks me. ATM I'm not sure myself what and where to go and what to do. Not story-wise, I have that in my head. The modding part.

Should I work on Infinity and leave this for later? Should I drop my Dragon Age mod completley(haven't touched in in a month)? Or should I put the Freespace 2 one on the freezer and do this? I'm having trouble deciding what to do, so I kinda jump back and forth doing tiny bits, and I keep pushing the "smaller" stuff back..Meh..I hate myself. :augh:

One of these days I'll just have to force myself to focus on one mod only, till completion, and only then move on something else..

@bolderaft - IIRC, the creatures apperance is triggered AFTER you gather all of the main characters and get close to the mountains.

O, after some thought, I decided to prioritize my projects based on difficutly to complete, the amount of content needed to complete and tools needed, so I could finish the simplest ones first.

Good news - this campaign is at the top of the list. Meaning I'm starting work on it again. Don't know if I'll find time to make better portraits and fix some sprites.

Huzaaah. Got it to run on 1.8.

Couldn't get the dam nwmllint to run, so I had to make all the changes by hand. At least it works now. Now on to polishing the campaign.
There will be some slight changes in some mission once I'm done, to make em more interesting.
Also, the gold carryover will be set on a mission-to-mission basis.

Making some progress. Busy with work and looking for a new pad, so it's going slower than I'd like.

I hereby announce that I'll welcome any help - from map making, scenario writing, unit sprite to portraits.

Wish u'll find some help because I enjoyed ur campaign. Sadly I have neither the knowledge neither the time to help you. I am very busy RL with my work, implementing a wastewater treatment plant for Nestle in some retired area of the Philippines.

Me again, back from a long hiatus..

I (again) resumed work..as you can guess, testing is taking a lot of time, and now I have to port this to 1.8.4.....damn, this thing moves fast.
I hope to streamline and fix things as much as I can.

B.t.w. - any syntax changes in 1.8.4?


@tribes - gang up on spiders and heal a lot, pull back injured units..that is a difficult part

Is there any change to how [gold] works? Cause I'm getting WLM errors, and it worked fine before...I don't notice any changes in other campaigns..
And this is how it looks:

[gold]
side=1,2,3
amount=50
[/gold]

If you're interested, I just picked the campaign from the 1.6 server and ran wmllint and wmlscope for you. Here there is the campaign automatically converted (it needs some fixing, like the binary paths, for example; also, the bak files are backups created by wmllint)

and here there are the wmllint and wmlscope logs.

You can try this way:

Code: Select all

[gold]
    side=1
    amount=50
[/gold]
[gold]
    side=2
    amount=50
[/gold]
[gold]
    side=3
    amount=50
[/gold]
The wiki, at http://wiki.wesnoth.org/DirectActionsWML says: "side: (default=1) the number of the side to give the gold to. " This may mean that probably multiple sides no longer work (but I'm not sure).

Comma-separated list for [gold]side= doesn't work acording to wml_tags.lua in 1.9 and thus most likely doesn't in 1.8 too. Gambit wants to rewrite it however, changing the default from side=1 to all sides and allowing comma-separated list.
