Can't recruit custom units

Post by Graziani »

Hi!

I'm still working on my troll campaign, all was working fine, and i've just renamed all my id's units.

The game do'nt crash, the level start up, but i can't recruit at all!

If someone can help me...

The code in the scenario

Code: Select all

[side]
type=Godug
id=Godug
name=Godug
facing=sw
x=40
y=29
side=1
team_name=trolls
user_team_name=_"Trolls"
canrecruit=yes
controller=human
recruit=DRS Troll Whelp,DRS Troll Bowler,DRS Initiate
gold=100
shroud=on
[/side]

One of the custom units

Code: Select all

#textdomain wesnoth-frab

did you include the location of the custom units in the _main.cfg? like in Era of the future i made a mini(micro) campaign to go with it. had to include the place to find the custom units.

So do you have your unit .cfg's in that directory or in subdirectories? It needs to be the former.

No need to do that, it does nothing.

You have "DRS Initiate" in your recruit list, whereas the unit id is presumably "DRS Troll Initiate". An unrecognized unit type in a recruit list (unfortunately) causes the recruit list to not work at all.
