Shameless Crossover Excuse Revived

Post by Mountain_King »

Rise, rise from the ground, dead campaign.

With Halloween nearly upon us, there are a lot of people into the whole "spooky/undead/blablabla" spirit this year. So, I decided that there should be an undead campaign re-released on October 31st for those into the whole mood. The Dark Hordes? Nah, UMC-Dev has that one. What about Shameless Crossover Excuse? The campaign where Gwiti claims revenge upon all those who steal his precious portraits for their own personal gain? Bingo. So, on October 31st we shall see return of a beloved necromancer not seen since 1.4. The Time-traveling Gwiti Ha'atel. I didn't want to be a necromancer myself, so I have left the original thread as dead as dead can be.

I have managed to convert most of the coding to 1.8 and got the whole thing to work without any game-breaking bugs. Thankfully, the original author provided us with a roadmap for the whole rest of the campaign, meaning it might get to actually be completed according to his original intentions.

Five Days Until Release Date!!!

The campaign sounds hilarious already :lol2:

I would help, but I have no access to a computer come tomorrow until Fridayish.

I'll enjoy playing it :D

How did you know that's the macro I used to revive the campaign? :P
Good news. I might actually have the whole thing basically done by launch time. Only 1 & 1/2 scenarios to go.
Two days until the release date (Woohoo!).

Campaign is floating around on the server now. Got the basic scenarios in, though it still needs some balancing on the last few scenarios, as well as the harder difficulties. I've only play-tested through it on easy.

it's only on the 1.8 server right now. I could try converting to 1.9, but I've been having trouble with that lately. Is there a list somewhere of all the syntax changes from 1.8 to 1.9?

if in doubt, try using it with 1.9 as it is and see what breaks - then play around with fixes for that :D

I'll get around to testing it myself, but got too many other stories started still

Theoretically, using the 1.9 wmlint should help converting your 1.8 campaign. (Make a backup before.)

There are not many differences, just try it, and correct eventual mistakes. 1.9 is very critical about your WML, and will make a fatal error of anything.

I am a dark inept at using wmllint. :lol2: Anyways, I transferred SCE to the computer with 1.9 on it, played with it a little bit, and WHAM-O! On the 1.9 server. There are two minor bugs that I am aware of, but they do not break the game.
bugs I have found:
Amazingly enough, I didn't have to change a single line of WML in any coding.

Hey, I've been playing through this on hard. Its pretty good, some interesting battles and a lot of silly jokes. :)
Anyway I'm pretty sure Showdown is impossible. There's nothing you can do to stop the AI from killing Babyface. Tbh, I sort of expected some joke regarding Hamel and this scenario in NR when he died, maybe just put something like that in? The scenario should be fine apart from that.

Eh....TBH, I forgot to modify the gold values for the teams in that scenario to approximate those of the scenario from NR. :doh:
Out of curiosity, which version of Wesnoth are you using? I have a 1.8 and a 1.9 version on the server.
I am on the case though, and I'll try and have it fixed within the next few hours.
