Battle for Wesnoth LEGACY

Battle for Wesnoth LEGACY


***WARNING***
This is a legacy version (1.10) of the game.
1.12 is available here:

http://wesnoth-on-android.sf.net/

and is published on google play
***WARNING***


This is an unofficial android port of the PC game Battle for Wesnoth.

Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based fantasy strategy game, featuring many addictive campaigns, lots of units, different races, AI controlled players, multiplayer gaming and much more.

On startup the game will need to download and install data from the internet, so be sure to have a good connection and free space on your device on the first run.


* Minimal difference from PC version

With the goal of making easier to follow official game releases, this port is focused on doing minimal modification to the PC game.
This means no UI changes.
Thus, to allow precise clicking even on touchscreens, a finger-dragging mouse emulation techinque is used. On startup you'll watch a small tutorial about it.
Also, the game needs a fairly good hardware to run on. At least a 800x480 screen and 512MB RAM are required and also a good cpu is suggested (700Mhz minimum).
Trackball and hardware keyboard will help interaction, but are not needed to play.


* Splitted data files

Game data files, which will be downloaded on first startup, are split into core, music, campaign and translations files. This way, you can choose to download and install only what you are interested into.
So for example if you don't care about game music you won't need to download music files, saving 140MB of download and memory.

The core download, which is 89MB, will allow you to:
- play single scenarios vs. another player or the AI
- download extras (campaigns and more) from the official server
- connecto to a game server to play network games


This port does not include server mode, so you cannot use this software to host a network game (but you can connect to one hosted somewhere else).

If your device has a very high DPI value (i.e. small screen, high resolution), game fonts may be too small to read.
To fix that, tap on "Change Configuration" button which appears for a few seconds on startup, select "Startup options" and check the "Set custom display resolution". Close the popup leaving default values (Width: 800, Height: 480).
This will force the game to 800x480 resolution, and make everything in the
screen look bigger, including fonts, and this setting will be kept for following runs.

Also, if you experience trouble or have some questions, you can use official BfW forum:

Good port Would be 5 stars but everyone who's been a fan of Wesnoth longer than its android 'release' knows it is a freeware game, playable of your pc for the low low price of zilch and any attempts to monetise the game is a misuse as per terms of use in the original version. Infact there used to be a rather large community dedicated to ratting out those people, But this was years ago. Anyway to summarise, great port shame about the infringement and theft, so sad.

Very Fun Fantasy Wargame! More than I would have believed possible for a phone game. When you add the community and DLC, it is just goes right off the rating scale.

Great game. Not for phones. I've loved this game since I first played it on Linux. However, I wouldn't bother if you intend to play it on anything smaller than a tablet. It's just too hard to control.
