There are many ways to get help. From online documentation to support from the community on IRC or forums.

Wiki Resources

Reporting Bugs

If you are experiencing problems, you should consider reporting a bug.

Community

Before asking for help with some technical problem in the official forums, please read How to report a bug properly for instructions and pointers.

Forums

IRC

If you don't know what Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is, check out Wikipedia's article and IRCHelp.org.

All of the following channels are hosted at the freenode IRC network unless otherwise noted. If you don't have an IRC client installed on your machine or are behind a strict firewall that blocks freenode's supported ports, you can use a compatible Web gateway service such as webchat.freenode.net.

Main channels

  • #wesnoth: This channel is for general conversation amongst Wesnoth players and developers.
  • #wesnoth-dev: The development discussion channel. Most contributors and developers (WML, C++ and art people alike) hang around here, exchanging ideas and code patches.
  • #wesnoth-mp: The multiplayer servers' status and development discussion channel.

International channels

You can also see the logs of some official Wesnoth channels.

Mailing Lists

  • Dev (archives): the mailing list for discussing mainline development issues; it is not intended for bug reports or feature requests. See ReportingBugs for those.
  • Commits (archives): all commits made to the mainline source repository are automatically echoed in this list for those who want or need to keep track of them. This list is currently unused.
  • i18n (archives): the internationalization (i18n) mailing list; all translation team maintainers and the i18n managers should subscribe and keep track of announcements and discussions taking place in this list.
