Windows 64-bit

Postby ahfretheim » Sat Dec 31, 2016 12:27 am

Dear developers,

I'm having a first look at the source code for Freeciv 2.5.6 right now and was wondering if there was any reason why there doesn't seem to be any separate functionality for native 64-bit Windows in the server initialization functions? If it right now runs exclusively as a 32-bit program, that may be part of the updates for my "version".

Sincerely,

Alexander Fretheim

How would you expect win64 source code to be different from win32?

Not sure. I just noticed that it specifically mentions in the code win32 for server initialization, versus a Mac initialization. I'm actually just learning C now, so I don't know all the specifics just yet.

If you'd like, I can post more to this thread as more becomes apparent.
