Will Wesnoth 2000 include achievements? I'm hoping it's going to have lots of achievements, such as "successfully sending your first in-game message," "successfully opening the Preferences dialog" and "successfully sending your first bug report."

Also, I look forward for official DLC for additional themed units, such as Flea Circus and the Flying Elephant Mastadon.

What about successfully beating the AI in an even match for the first time? I've been playing Wesnoth for years and I still haven't gotten that one.

Wth am I reading :hmm:

So the probability for healing one HP is .25*.4*.7, which is, uh... .07, or 7%. So it will heal 7 damage on average and inflict .2*100=20 damage on average as well. Wait, is healing and damaging mutually exclusive? So then that'd mean if an attack heals it does not do damage and that means that...

Screw this math isn't my strong suit. I'm out of here :P

Even worse, it's not available in my country, either. BUT I AM AMERICAN! Americans are supposed to have all the YouTube videos and everyone else is supposed to get that message!!! :doh:

So yeah, this is where there would be a sarcasm indicator in a better engineered language. On the other hand, however, I do not think that those notices are fair. In fact, I really don't like IP address discrimination, but this is honestly the first time I've been regioned out on YouTube. I greatly dislike this kind of "intellectual property" enforcement, considering that the main advantage of the Internet is that national boundaries should not really have any significance. It's a vital part of the culture that videos not be locked to certain regions only. For example, imagine if only Brits could see this and everyone else was forced to wonder where the word "spam" came from.

This little piece of Perl is helpful:

Decode:

Code: Select all

while(<>) { print chr hex foreach(split /\s+/) }
Encode:

Code: Select all

while(<>) { printf("%02x ", ord) foreach(split //) }

It might be too late, last night I saw that more of them are coming. Besides WesnothAI, there was also WesnothAl — that's Al as in HAL, which makes me think that whoever's playing the AI (I know that sounds odd) has twice now missed an excellent opportunity for "I'm sorry Dave" jokes.
