Wesnoth 1.10.1 on easy
Regrets

I think I've got to alter a config file (according to Anonymissimus). Is that the save file?

The config file that you're after is the scenario file. You'll want to go to where your add-on campaigns are stored (different depending on your os and settings, but you should be able to search "Tale of a Mage" to find it), open the folder for this campaign, then the folder called "scenarios".
The file should be called something along the lines of "regrets.cfg" and you just need to change the "result=continue" line to say "result=victory".
Hope that's what you're after.

But perhaps 'maintainer' is too strong a word.

First attempt didn't fix it, but it's way past my bedtime - I'll try again tomorrow.

Yeah.
Chances are that you'll have the same issue with each of the scenarios in the campaign, since this one hasn't been updated to the new standards. Sorry that I forgot to mention that :oops: . On the plus side, now that you know what you're looking for and how to solve it, it's probably a 5 minute job on the outside.
Enjoy the campaign,

Bear in mind, however, that doing so won't have the same behaviour as the old result=continue key.
To simulate it better, you should add also the following keys to [endlevel] (see http://wiki.wesnoth.org/DirectActionsWML#.5Bendlevel.5D):

Code: Select all

carryover_report=no
linger_mode=no

Elvish_Hunter, without trying to learn WML, am I right to assume that the additional keys are because it's the final level?

I can't delete - but I'm wrong please ignore. Sorry

When I tried to run this on version 1.10.5, I got the following two errors before the campaign failed to load. I tried re-installing the add-on, and even failed to successfully delete it.

AMLA_TOUGH was reported missing from the main campaign file

And the scenario Townsquare was reported as unknown.

Probably it's because some unit uses said macro, that was removed from mainline. There are two possible solutions:
1) replace every instance of AMLA_TOUGH with AMLA_DEFAULT (recommended)
2) if it's critical for balancing that the unit must not be healed upon leveling, pick the AMLA_TOUGH macro from a old version of Wesnoth, and insert it inside the campaign.

Will this be updated to 1.11.2?

If anyone wants to know the culprit files are the Fire Ghost and Saurian Swampstalker. Change {AMLA_TOUGH 3} to {AMLA_DEFAULT} in both of those files. This campaign has been downloaded a ton, and it's been broken the entire time? :doh:

Sooooo, been gone a little while. (ahem) You know, youthful teenage years taking up so much of one's time. I've also discovered that I've forgotten the password to my SkeleRanger account and my email associated with it no longer exists.

That being said, I'm ready to pull this campaign out of the mud again if the demand is high enough. WML was a classic part of my childhood coding spree so the nostalgia surrounding this campaign won't let me kill it. See you all soon!

Forum admins exist for a reason :) Just send a PM to shadowm and he'll be able to fix your account.

None. You'll need a decent text editor instead. See here:
