I've tested this by disabling Wesnoth version check in campaign's _main.cfg file.

I think it's the campaign author/maintainer responsibility to fix this. Perhaps try asking on the forum?

How can I test that it is fixed ?
I downloaded and compiled Wesnoth with the newest commits, but the Mystery Campaign (version 1.6.9) immediately says "not working" (without trying to generate a map imho).

Can I download the 1.6.7 version of this campaign somewhere ?

thanks for all the help,

Should be fixed in https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth-old/commit/6b4ab7c3bc40b1178fa84b320ff4ebed0a5bf30b.

This is unlikely a bug in the campaign.

Having a random map with map_generation=default either in SP or MP campaign, produces the reported error. (The scenario has to be a child of a campaign tag, standalone maps work fine)

If changing to scenario_generation=default the game freezes (bug #21278).

Attaching the debug log.

(file #19383)

The Mystery Campaign was updated (1.6.8) to prevent this bug from happening, it now warns that it won't work on wesnoth-1.11.7 (so I cannot reproduce the problem anymore).

Yes, launching wesnoth from commandline while passing --log-debug=all as a parameter.
This is likely a bug in the addon, not the engine. As a shot in the dark, it'd make sure that the wml referencing filenames is correct (A instead of a etc, which is a bug not noticable on case-insensitive filesystems (windows)).

I compiled wesnoth-1.11.7 today. It works, except for the Mystery Campaign add-on. When starting this campaign it fails to start with the following error:

The error is exactly the same on Mac OSX with the wesnoth-1.11.7 download.

Is there a way to get more verbose errors ? Or some other way I can help solve this ?

I also posted this on the forum:
