About this game

This is a legacy version (1.12) of the game.
1.14 is available here:

and is published on google play

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:

Ahh TBfW, classic for me and easily a top tier strategy game Imo. Quality content ranging from music to even sprite work, and it's not too hard on storage, it's also easily modifiable mainly due to its open source nature, pretty neat. I remember the 1.4.5 most fondly and this version (the 1.12.6) is about the closest it gets to that nostalgia, but you can get one of the 1.10.x releases in SourceForge (oldest available). Controls are hard to use but that's understandable, TBfW is mainly for PC!

I've loved this game since I was a kid, and was thrilled to find it also as a mobile game. I do have a few bugs to report, so I wish there was an In-game section for bug reporting. When typing, nothing actually gets displayed, but I can use backspace. Furthermore, I don't have the display for time of day. Other than that, amazing!

great game. a lil difficult to navigate on a cellphone; but once you get used to moving the mouse cursor it is intuitive enough. great storyline, and fun mechanisms.
