Re: Can't get game to work - *SOLVED*

Nevermind, I figured it out: I was trying to use Wargus 2.3 with Stratagus 2.4.1 - downgrading to Stratagus 2.3.1 fixed it.

Can't get game to work - *SOLVED*

Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." I've uninstalled and reinstalled both Wargus and Stratagus ...

Possible Fork Project

Hey, I had an idea for a fork project potentially using BOS Wars as a starting point for creating a totally different game. I assume no-one would mind, considering that BOS Wars is already an open-source project, and one without much recent development at that, but I wanted to make sure I was in th...

Upgrades With Different Effects for Different Units

Just looking at the code for Aleona's Tales, I haven't found any instances of a single upgrade/research effecting multiple units in different ways. So, for example, suppose I wanted a single upgrade that did two things: A) it gave Castles extra Hitpoints; and B) it made Swordsmen deal more damage. H...

Re: Dealing Different Damage to Different Units

Just take a look into Doom Wars documentation (located in /doc/doc_en.html from the Doom Wars directory), I have described there all information about damage type system of Doom Wars. The damage calculation formula is located in /scripts/stratagus.lua file (SetDamageFormula function). Sorry to be a...

Thank you so much. This really defines how I will approach the design of my game, so it helps a lot to know what I can do.

Dealing Different Damage to Different Units

Hi, I have a big question about the capabilities of Stratagus' engine. Is it possible for a single unit type to do different amounts of damage to different types of other units? So, say I have three kinds of units: a Pikeman, an Archer, and a Knight. Would it be possible for the Pikeman to do, say, ...
