* '''rect'''=''a,b,c,d'': defines the rectangle to display on, where a,b are top left x,y coordinates and c,d are bottom right coordinates. So, for example rec="0,10,20,30" would create a rectangle that has top left corner at the very left side of the screen, 10 pixels below the very top and is 20 pixels wide and tall. Each of a,b,c,d may be specified as:
 
** number : absolute positions

The toplevel [theme] tag

Themes are used both for the wesnoth game and the wesnoth editor. Themes allow flexible configuration of how everything is laid out on-screen.

The following keys are recognized in [theme]:

  • id: The internal id of the theme.
  • name: Translatable theme name displayed in Preferences.
  • hidden: Boolean value (defaults to no), determines whether the theme will be displayed in Preferences or not. This can be used to prevent players from choosing themes that are not intended for use in regular gameplay.
  • description: A short description of the theme to display in Preferences.

The only tag in [theme] is [resolution], but each theme can have multiple [resolution] tags. The [resolution] tags are scanned until the first one which is of the same or lower resolution than is currently being used is found, and this is used as our theme. This allows us to define themes to work differently on different resolutions, and will allow us to support both high and low resolutions elegantly.

The following keys and tags are recognized for [resolution]:

  • width, height: dimensions in pixels

All subtags of [resolution] use the following keys:

  • rect=a,b,c,d: defines the rectangle to display on, where a,b are top left x,y coordinates and c,d are bottom right coordinates. So, for example rec="0,10,20,30" would create a rectangle that has top left corner at the very left side of the screen, 10 pixels below the very top and is 20 pixels wide and tall. Each of a,b,c,d may be specified as:
    • number : absolute positions
    • = : same value as the same field in reference rect (alignment with reference)
    • +number or -number : for a and b, add this value to reference's c and d respectively (spacing from reference); for c and d, add this value to self's a and b (specify by width and height)
    • =+number or =-number : add this value to same field in reference rect (eg. consider reference as a container box)
  • xanchor, yanchor: control the behavior of how this rectangle changes as the resolution changes.
    • left: its distance from the left side of the screen always remain the same, while changes in the resolution will change its size by the same amount (top for the y axis).
    • right: its size always remain the same, as well as its distance to the right side of the screen (bottom for the y axis).
    • fixed: its co-ordinates in that axis remain constant
    • proportional: its co-ordinates multiplied by the ratio of the resolution being used to the canonical resolution.

[main_map]

defines where the main game display (i.e. all the hexagons and units) is displayed.

[main_map_border]

Defines the border of the main map area. It has the following keys.

  • border_size: the size of the border, the value should be between 0.0 and 0.5. The images which are used by default are sized for 0.5. If the border gets smaller the images still need the same size. They're simply cut off at the right spot.
  • background_image: the filename of the image to use as background.
  • tile_image: the filename of the image to use for the _off^_usr tile. The image in the minimal can't be controlled only the image in the main map. This image must be in the terrain directory and a png image. When specifying the image the 'terrain/' prefix and '.png' suffix _must_ be ommitted.
  • corner_image_top_left: filename for the image in the top left corner.
  • corner_image_bottom_left: filename for the image in the top left corner.
  • corner_image_top_right_odd: filename for the image in the top right corner, if the x value of the corner is odd. This x value is the value seen in game (and thus not in the source).
  • corner_image_top_right_even: filename for the image in the top right corner, if the x value of the corner is even. This x value is the value seen in game (and thus not in the source).
  • corner_image_bottom_right_odd: filename for the image in the bottom right corner, if the x value of the corner is odd. This x value is the value seen in game (and thus not in the source).
  • corner_image_bottom_right_even: filename for the image in the bottom right corner, if the x value of the corner is even. This x value is the value seen in game (and thus not in the source).
  • border_image_left: filename for the image at the left border.
  • border_image_right: filename for the image at the right border.
