TechTip: Battle for Wesnoth (Cheat)

Q: I am playing Battle for Wesnoth on my Linux/Mac/Windblows (delete as appropriate) box and my character keeps getting killed.

A: Use the villages and/or healers.

Q: But isn't there a cheat or something?

A: Well .... yes.

Q: What is it?

A: Select a character and make sure the cursor stays over the character. Put the game into debug mode:


Now change the characters hitpoints and/or experience:
:unit hitpoints=1000[enter]
:unit experience=250[enter]

The first (hitpoints) is fairly safe, the second is risky if the character then gets upgraded to something that does not exist (this happens in a few of the optional downloads).

Note that with debug turned on, you can also create characters at will, anywhere on the map. You also get some debugging info cluttering up the top left hand corner of the screen which is inevitably where the baddies hang out...
