Sir Galvin Scenario Development

Post by Sir_Jaques » May 6th, 2011, 9:48 pm

This is the forum for the Campaign Sir Galvin that is being developed.

The first version for this is 0.2 and it has just been added to the server. If you find any errors or problems in the campaign, please let me know.

Here is a description:
When dangers face the land of Wesnoth from every side, the King has only one man to turn to, Sir Galvin. A power hungry noble's throw the King into prison until Sir Galvin helps him escape. Alone, in a world of disorder, the exiles must find some way to prevent the destruction of Wesnoth. Along the way, they discover that many things are not as they seem and that certain events that seem to be coincidence, might not have been so.

Only one thing, if you want some players spend time playing a development campaign try to "sell" it. Tell us about it. The story, the characters... I'll play it tomorrow. Greetings for your first try (as I see).

Nice work here.
Scrolling to Malifor's room in scenario 1 is a bit short - 20 delay means 0,02 seconds, which isn't noticeable at all. Alternatively you might try highlighting the gohere-icon, as it took some time until I found out where the room I was supposed to go was.
Also it'd be nice you you could shorten the way through the water in scenario 3 a bit. I spent about 40 turns moving three guys through water. The guards won't reach you anyway, and one Spearman can defend the tight tunnel against the guards for 40 turns if you do it right.
Scenario 3, 4 and 5 don't have any Time of Day.
You can't get to scenario 5 because you haven't changed the next_scenario in the previous one (that means I have to play "Across the River" again :augh: )

Thanks for the help. I shortened the map in scenario 3, added time of day and finished 5 (It was unfinished before and that was the reason you could not get to it). ;) if you download 0.3.0 you should be able to get to 5.

The current version of scenario 5 has a couple of rather large errors (as some of you have pointed out). I am almost done overhauling that level. Version 0.3.3 will go to the servers hopefully soon. That version fixes up errors in the last few scenarios including 4, 5 and adds 6. It also has various other minor fixes and improvements. In four, the orcs are meant to overpower the humans. In all the tests that I have run, they defeat the humans around round 13-14. This gives the player enough time to get across the river far enough so as not to be caught by the orcs, unless you wait too long. (Note: I've only tested the normal difficulty so far) (Also Note: these turn numbers for 5 are coming from version 0.3.3 which is not on the servers. 0.3.2 might be different right now. I don't remember where I was at when I posted that version.)

yes humans got defeated in turn 13-14 but the orcs sent a few fighters in turn 6 to Gulo so they were there when i got over the river
it was really close and i had to reload often (normal mod)
maybe you can give the humans in normal 302 income?
dont know how to post here the replay :-(

Were you using 0.3.3? (Just went to servers May 27). In that version, I turned the ai target value against the humans up higher so the orcs don't send units to attack you until after humans are dead for me.

You can play from the end of the third scenario, but some of the changes to Sir Galvin wont work. (His added amla options and his lower experience requirement)
