Freeciv-proper has stable savegame formats for each version, and backward compatibility between these is guaranteed. Freeciv-2.6 will be able to load freeciv-2.5 saves, and freeciv-3.0 will be able to load freeciv-2.6 saves (as well as freeciv-2.5, freeciv-2.4, and freeciv-2.3 saves). Freeciv-web on the other hand uses development revisions between these stable formats. We try not to unnecessarily break compatibility with older development revisions, but a couple of times a year there's a situation where implementing the migration path between old and new development revision would be too much work, to take too much time away from implementing more important things.

I have a Samsung Chromebook. My games will save 3-5 times, and then the saves no longer show up when I want to load it up.

Do you have some more information about this? I see that you currently have 2 savegames. Many of your savegames were deleted, from looking at the logs. Do you still have this problem?

There is no user in the database called 'jss', and I can't find any error messages in the logs to indicate what went wrong.
Could you please try again to create a new user account? Perhaps try a different e-mail address?
If you get an error message, then please give the exact error message.

I see that you have managed to create many savegames on November 6 and 9th, with the name 'jss' without an account with a password.

There are now 727 users who have created 5471 savegames in Freeciv-web on the new savegame system. I think this is a good sign!

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 fixes the suggestions you have here.
There are now 11126 savegames on the Freeciv-web server.

Thank you.

This is so much better. The only thing I noticed is that although the most recently saved game was selected, the list was not scrolled so that the selected game was in view.
