With 1.10, 'wesnoth -m' starts with 100 gold or the map setting, whichever is more. For example, 'wesnoth -m --scenario multiplayer_Volcano' starts with 125 gold, equaling the map setting; but 'wesnoth -m --scenario multiplayer_Hamlets' starts with 100 gold, though the map setting is 75 gold.

With 1.11.0-svn (54838), 'wesnoth -m --scenario multiplayer_Volcano' starts with 125 gold, but 'wesnoth -m --scenario multiplayer_Hamlets' starts with 0 gold. So Hamlets has this bug but Volcano does not.

See also bug #19883.

If Wesnoth is launched from the command line into a MP game (with the -m option), starting gold defaults to 0 if not set specifically using something like '--parm 1:gold:100 --parm 2:gold:100'. By contrast, a MP game started from the lobby has gold=100, which should be the default for MP games.

This seems to be the same issue as the one recently reported but concerning village_gold in a multiplayer game.
