If you can't find the desktop item to launch the editor , try to execute the command "wesnoth_editor". PS: Ubuntu is a Linux "distribution". A distribution is a sort of big package of applications who use Linux as operating system. Check wikipedia for more info : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_...

Topic: Add a revision number variable in WML config

Ok so just a version number. But I suppose that we can use both variable and define. (btw SkeletonCrew I didn't really understand your name system) Having also a system to compare version number can be handy. And WML variable can do things like "greater_than = 1.2" But it force to use only the 1.x f...

Thanks for the active point, I think is important, specially if you zooming out: when hex and cursor start to have similar size, it helps for precise click. Jetryl, if you start to fix temporary images, you may want to know that, on the trunk, the color drag-attack cursor is always a quick frankenst...

Add a revision number variable in WML config

Just a simple idea: add a revision number variable in WML config (in game.cfg?) So a WML file can adapt its code to the running engine. It will allow new smart WML file to work fine on old engine. An other possibility is to add a standard declaration in each WML scenario to allow wesnoth code to eas...

Now color cursors can pointing any pixel not just the topleft one.

I like the boots, but maybe more walking movement ?

Great work for the cursors, I always found the previous were too "modern". Since I recently work on the code of the color cursors in the trunk, here is some info: the alt version come from the black & white cursors for apple. Apple need 16x16 b&w cursors. As you can see here on the trunk: http://svn...

By the way, for the graphic effect, some time of the day masks can be used (I recently do a little debug on their smooth transition between turns). Just add the mask tag like you use the rgb ToD color. The drawback is the pattern is static and repetitive. I tested it and it's a bit strange to see no...

Darth fool >Sorry, didn't notice / forget this part (quick looked as the parsing of the file path). Thanks for your info, indeed this method will be more powerful at the end.

Indeed maybe my TYPICAL_TILE was not a good idea. I never thought about using the image path for the effects. It seems really great, specially if it allows use in WML. But you mean something like: get_image("terrain/image.png+BRIGHTENED"), with parsing for knowing the effect to apply? If so, it can ...

I'm aware of the new types. I followed their introduction and my post is partially about that. I just precise that the flag like POISONED will be used for organize all the image transformation in one place (image.cpp), and must not store the resulting image in cache, only find a previous image in th...

About the "next unit" button: In my browser, I like to change tabs with the scrollwheel. Maybe do the same with the icon of unit in the sidebar? It will be like the sidebar is a vertical(or horizontal if you prefer) list of units. And about space and other button: Why the icons of the statusbar are ...

A new design for image::type

When working with image::type, I was annoyed by the present system, I found it : - rigid : adding a new effect cause a change in all the type organization and all the calls in the main code must be checked. - wasting : The hierarchical organization cause to flush half of the cache when just a parame...

Time of the day mask not used anymore ?

Hi, I'm new to the code of Wesnoth and doesn't know all its history. There is code about time of the day masks who need to be cleaned up. But I don't know if this feature is used anymore. I don't find it in officials campaigns but I don't know enough WML to be sure about other scenarios. I don't kno...
