A Tale of Two Brothers With a Third Difficulty

Post by egallager »

I recently published my fork of A Tale of Two Brothers, called "A Tale of Two Brothers With a Third Difficulty" on the 1.14 add-on server. Unlike some of my other campaigns, this one has never been part of my generalized mods collection, but rather has lived its entire life in its own separate repository, which can be found here: https://github.com/cooljeanius/Two_Brothers_With_A_Third_Difficulty
Basically, what I did here was to insert a new "Normal" difficulty in between the "Easy" and "Hard" difficulties that exist in the mainline version of A Tale of Two Brothers. I also made the "Easy" difficulty more of a tutorial, since the mainline tutorial campaign (where Delfador teaches you how to fight quintains) suggests playing AToTB as your next campaign after you complete it, but AToTB never felt like as good of a follow-up to the tutorial as The South Guard or An Orcish Incursion did. Also, there were some comments in the code of the mainline AToTB suggesting some ideas on things to do with the Dark Adept Muff Toras in an update, so I took that and expanded on it. There are some other changes as well, so be sure to try all 3 difficulties!

For people who have completed the campaign, I have the following (spoilered) questions for soliciting feedback:

Anyways, I hope you'll give it a try! Thanks!

I just released a minor bugfix update to this campaign on the 1.14 add-on server; the corresponding GitHub tag for it is here: https://github.com/cooljeanius/Two_Brothers_With_A_Third_Difficulty/releases/tag/1.0.2
Please let me know if you are a translator and can help translate some of the updated dialogue I've added into your language!

Update on the above point: I've decided to attach the potfile here, too, in case any translators can't download it from GitHub:

OK I've now ported this to BfW 1.16; turns out I didn't actually have to do much for it: https://github.com/cooljeanius/Two_Brothers_With_A_Third_Difficulty/releases/tag/1.0.4

I forgot to mention an important change that needs to be made to support translation.
I couldn't send a pull request from my folk, so I'm writing it here. Sorry.

Please add the following 1 line to _main.cfg. ( In the [textdomain] section )

path="data/add-ons/Two_Brothers_With_A_Third_Difficulty/translations"

This is the path to search for po files.
After adding, this file will look like this.

#textdomain wesnoth-tbw
[textdomain].
name="wesnoth-tbw"
path="data/add-ons/Two_Brothers_With_A_Third_Difficulty/translations"
[/textdomain]

# wmlscope: set export=no
[campaign] .
.
.
.

Thanks in advance.

OK, committed in 7e3ed2c; thanks for reporting!
(I don't think that this single change is quite enough to merit an entire new release on its own yet, though, so I'll wait a bit before uploading it to the add-on server)

Thank you.
I would be happy to release this when you have other updates.
I am sure other supporters think the same way, but for me, I'm happy that some input and findings will help someone else. :)
