Frogfolk Delivery Service (2 scenario, BfW 1.16)

Post by Helmet »

This is the feedback thread for my campaign "Frogfolk Delivery Service."

"Frogfolk Delivery Service" is a two-scenario intermediate-level campaign, made for Battle for Wesnoth 1.16.6 (Mac OS).

My campaign features original units based on frogs, mushrooms, and bugs. All units are thoroughly animated. The main character is Ziffid, a human-like frog. Victory is attained only when Ziffid completes his delivery mission -- not by defeating enemy leaders. The player employs an army of sentient frogs, mushrooms and bugs to keep Ziffid safe while he travels from place to place.

What difficulty mode did you choose (easy, normal, hard)?
How challenging was scenario 1, on a scale of 1-10?
How enjoyable was scenario 1, on a scale of 1-10?
How challenging was scenario 2, on a scale of 1-10?
How enjoyable was scenario 2, on a scale of 1-10?
Which of the following units did you especially enjoy: Grumber, Shroomkin, Frog Fighter, Conglodon, or Xendar?
Would you be interested in other short campaigns featuring those original units?
Anything else you'd like to say?

Thanks for playing my campaign. :D

Hello Helmet;

Nice map and character graphics.I started playing on Easy mode and the game instructions are clear.
I got all these warnings in the log file (see below). I will be glad to try again but the warnings
made me suspect a new version was on the way.
yours

"Frogfolk Delivery Service" has been updated. Thanks for the information about your error log. Also, thanks for copying the error message, because I'm not seeing it for some reason.

The errors involved code I had copied and pasted from my other campaign, but didn't actually use for anything. I assumed unused blocks of code wouldn't cause problems, so I left it in, but the code was from an earlier version of Wesnoth and I guess the code doesn't work any more. Anyhow, that unused code is gone now.

Hmm. I'm confused about how to fix that.
Are you playing with version 1.17? Maybe the new version requires something that wasn't needed in 1.16, maybe something about translations.
Thanks for the information. I'll research it.

Final 2 errors removed. I never saw the error message on my computer; I think my computer just ignored them, since they didn't affect gameplay. But the errors should be gone now.

I think only the Windows versions record the errors by default. I use Linux and had to edit my files to force it to save the errors to a file. Perhaps you have to do something like that for Mac also.

BTW I have started the campaign, I really like it so far (a few turns only, ran out of time, will get back ASAP) I'm impressed by the graphics and animations.

FWIW, with 1.17 there's the --log-to-file option which enables logging to file for macOS and Linux. For Steam+Linux it's also the default.

Oh, thanks for the information. I know somebody with a Windows computer, so next time that I make a campaign, I'll be sure to ask them to check the error log for me, to see if anything is amiss.

I just finished the first scenario (on easy and it was which is great!) and I must say this is one of the best campaigns I've ever tried.

As regards the animations, wow, I saw that the froggies lift their military forks above their heads when scoring a kill. WICKED!

I also just love the wimsy of all the bugs and shrooms and frogs, it's incredibly refreshing since most Wesnoth is more "horror" monster oriented. Nothing against that but this is charming.

Thanks for the encouraging feedback.
Haha, yeh, I like the victory-animation, too. I made the kind of animations that I would like to see.

The second scenario ends when you defeat all enemy leaders. (Scenario file line 723)

Thanks for the note. The code has been updated.

Watching your replays was fun. Scenario 2 reminded me somewhat of Lord of the Rings. On one area of the map is a huge army of good guys fighting a huge army of bad guys, and on another part of the map is the solitary hero, hoping he won't be noticed while making his delivery. :D

Boy, what a dramatic ending to scenario 2 -- winning on the final turn while wounded and poisoned. You had me worried.

Congratulations on beating it on Hard mode.

Trivia: the frog fighters had no slingshots in this campaign; that's how I originally designed the frog fighters. I didn't give them slingshots until the subsequent scenario Big Battle 1 (and also reduced tongue accuracy and damage).

Thanks for the feedback.
