The [command] tag

The [command] tag is used to specify an action in a replay. It has the following attributes:

  • dependent if true, this command is not a lone-standing command and instead belongs to an earlier command, for example an advancement choice for an earlier attack command which issued an advancement.
  • from_side the side which issued the command. Only present for dependent commands.
  • sent used internally in networked mp, to know which commands were already sent to the other clients.

The following tags are recognized for dependent=no(default):

  • [start]: is used to initialize the replay so that generated random numbers can be saved.
  • [move]: the player moved a unit.
    • x,y: the path the unit walks.
    • skip_sighted: whether the unit doesn't stop when discovering another unit, possible values are 'only_ally', 'all' or no, (default no).
  • [recruit]: the player recruited a unit.
    • type: the id of the type of unit recruited.
    • x and y: the castle tile the unit is recruited on.
    • [from]
      • x and y: the keep tile the unit is recruited from.
  • [recall]: the player recalled a unit. Same keys as [recruit], except that value is the id of the unit being recalled.
  • [attack]: the player attacked.
    • weapon: the index number of the weapon. Weapons are indexed by the unit designer.
    • defender_weapon: the index number of the defenders weapon. Weapons are indexed by the unit designer, '-1' to choose the best weapon locally. The '-1' option is deprecated because it can cause OOS.
    • [source]: the location of the attacking unit.
    • [destination]: the location of the defending unit.
  • [disband]: the player removes a unit from his recall list.
    • value the id of the removed unit.
  • [end_turn]: the player ended his turn.
  • [init_side]: new turn is starting for a side. This fires begin of turn events.
  • [fire_event]: a specific event was raised. This is mainly used for right-click menu items. ([set_menu_item])
    • raise: the name of the event
    • [source]: the location of the event
    • [set_variable] (deprecated): set WML variable(s) before firing.
      • name: the name of the variable
      • value: a string value (literal)
  • [lua_ai]: (Version 1.13.12 and later only) This has been removed.
    • code the lua code that is executed.
  • [custom_command]: (Version 1.13.12 and later only) Executes a custom command registered by Lua code
    • name: The name of the custom command to run.
    • [data]: Arbitrary data to be passed to the custom command.
  • [auto_shroud]: a player toggled delayed shroud update
    • active whether automatic shroud updates will be active.
  • [update_shroud]: a player manually updated shroud.

Non dependent commands can have a [checkup] tag which is used to check whether the data generated in the replay matches the data generated during the original game, The [checkup] tag can contain different [result] tags whose content is different for the different actions. For [attack] commands the [result]s give information about the single hits and can have the following attributes:

    • chance: the percent chance that the attack had to hit.
    • damage: the amount of damage that the attack would do if it hits.
    • hits: whether the attack hits.
    • dies: whether the defender dies from the hit.

The following tags are recognized for dependent=true:

  • [choose]: the player was given an option by the scenario or for an advancement path.
    • value: the index number of the option chosen. Index numbers are given by the scenario designer.
  • [input]: if a lua code used LuaWML:Misc#wesnoth.synchronize_choice this tag contains the returned table.
  • [global_variable]: a WML code used with [get_global_variable]
  • [random_seed]: A user actions uses the rng and thus new random seed is needed.
