Re: secfile error - help needed

The city names list ends with a comma. My guess would be that the parser is expecting another city name, but instead, the file ends, so the beginning of the next nation file (the barbarians) causes an error, 'cause it's not a city name.

You're missing a range there.

Re: Problem loading ruleset - "segmentation fault"

Try running the server with verbose logging:

Code: Select all

freeciv-server --debug 3

That might give some insight into when the error happens. This looks like a serious problem in the Freeciv server (not the ruleset); segfaults shouldn't ever happen.

Cross-compiling for Windows

In an effort to make use of WSL, I've been looking into cross-compilation for Windows from Ubuntu. To that end, I'm using the 'mingw-w64' apt package. I've gotten configure to run through with --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 (and a corresponding --prefix, which doesn't seem to make a difference), but run ...

Re: How can I change the server port?

If you launch the server with the --help option, it'll display all the different options you can use. In this case, you'll want the --port (or -p) option, followed by your desired port.

No, it's the same for me. Though I never noticed it until just now.

Re: Missile can be launched only from ship

I'm assuming your Advanced Bomber is an Unreachable unit? In that case, you'll want to take a look at the "embarks" and "disembarks" fields for unit types. Should be documented in units.ruleset.

Re: Iso vs. overhead tileset and topology

I believe the only problem that can arise from mismatched tileset and game topology are on the square/hex side of things. Iso/overhead mismatch isn't even noticeable, except on the world borders.

Re: BCE/CE to BC/AD?

It's in game.ruleset, I believe. Adding an option to change it while still allowing ruleset authors to decide what to call their year labels (if their ruleset is a completely different setting, e.g. Alien World) would be nontrivial. Also, I don't really see why this would be necessary - using CE and...
