Re: How to make a multiplayer server

after you finish the game and exit from the gui (GTK) client, each computer will have a dos box. In that dos box, type exit.

For the dos box where you started started the server, type in two commands, quit, then exit.

Re: How to make a multiplayer server

This answer is for Windows users, and I have assumed you have downloaded (and installed) the file freeciv-2.5.11-win32-gtk-setup.exe on to your two computers for your 1v1.

Re: How to make a multiplayer server

This post might get more visibility if it were in the Tech Support subforum. Perhaps a moderator will move it. Anyhow, are you trying to set up a freeciv for a lan party or for an internet party. The difference is that you would have to make changes to your router that protects your intranet (lan) f...

Re: Single city challenge

Do you want to have ocean/lake?


Dolp! :roll:

if one doesn't then one would have to bribe another player's freighter in order to move off of your island for trade purposes as an example.

While I have bribed enemy units, I have never attempted to bribe a vessel. I suppose it would be possible.

Re: How to make food supplies routes?

However, that works only up to size 8. You can't grow a city bigger than size 8 like that. To make your cities grow quickly invest in entertainment, trade, and luxury to the point that your city is celebrating. There has to be no unhappy or angry citizens. There has to be at least 50% happy citizen...

Re: trying to play 2.5.10 on window client/server, can't connect

figured out my issue, in the GTK2 client, the value in the field labeled servername wasn't localhost. I changed value in the field to localhost, then the client could connect to the server. Another way I could have solved it was to edit the windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file (I think that's whe...

Re: Can we get HTTPS?

bump Yes, I am using password that I don't use anywhere else. However, I agree that we should be using https://. Google Chrome on my Chromebook is saying this website is "Not Secure" in the address bar. Here's Google's comment: https://security.googleblog.com/2018/02/a-secure-web-is-here-t...
