Freeciv Web enhancements

The seven icon tabs across the top should have hover tips as to what they are for, map...manual The information line at the bottom of the map now is very cryptic and I really liked having the turn or date displayed there. Adding a hover tip for this would help the new or returning players decipher ...

Re: New savegame system for Freeciv-web

Improvements: Sort the games list such that the most recently saved game is at the bottom of the list. Pre-select (not load) the most recently saved game. Set focus on the Load button. Shrink the size of the load window, I can not view the whole window at once. I have released an update now, which ...

Re: New savegame system for Freeciv-web

As freeciv-web does not use stable freeciv savegame formats, between which conversions would work, but follows development version with frequent compatibility breaks, a year old savegame would be incompatible anyway. What has been happening to savegames saved minutes before a compatibility breaking...

Re: New savegame system for Freeciv-web

I have now created an username and password successfully :D . Only to discover the username must match the ruler name in order to play my old saved games, which it currently doesn't. I have picked a different ruler name every time I start a new game. It is part of the fun (Ceasar, Patton, Fox ...). ...

Re: New savegame system for Freeciv-web

I just tried again using "rush" as the username. The error "Creating new user failed." Can you please try again with a different password? The special characters in the password is causing the problem. I will fix this in the next version. Thanks for reporting this! Feel free to ...

Re: New savegame system for Freeciv-web

After seeing that you have expanded the retention to a year I decided to create an account. But I'm unable to do it. The user name is restricted to alphabetic characters only but there is no hint until you try to create a name with a number in it. After selecting an username with alpha only it trie...

Re: New savegame system for Freeciv-web

I appreciate your working to improve this game experience. But one of the big pluses for me in the freeciv-web game was that the games could be saved and managed on my local machine. I used to play Evony online. It is a multiplayer game somewhat like freeciv. But being as it is a multiplayer game wi...

Re: Feedback on Freeciv-web on mobile and tablet wanted!

Andreas, Thanks for your efforts. I was not sure if you thought your fix would repair my current (most recently failed) game or just future games. So I loaded the old game, took a turn and tried to save. The save failed, something about a server problem. I tried to save again and it saved. I shut d...
