You can get help here if Freeciv doesn't start on your computer, or if you keep getting fatal errors while playing etc.

There's no official version for Android. I pushed a bit in that direction, but there was zero interest.

Zero interest from the core devs and low interest from other people. My focus drifted away from Android and I'm currently working on improving the longturn.net website and infrastructure. Some changes are already visible, a major update is currently being tested and I'm not yet out of ideas :)

Okay, good luck. A new one has appeared - on the site you can link to your id in Discord. But while it's still damp, it would be nice to follow the link to go directly to the player's profile in Discord. And one more thing - what if there are several Discord profiles under the same name, but with different numbers (Discord Player # 3366 for example)

You can put Player#12345 in the Discord Id field, which should be sufficient in the vast majority of cases.

As far as I know, yes (unfortunately).

If you mean me, I never saw any tickets to comment about this...
It would be a good goal, though I can't promise I could push it forward with my current "a couple of minutes per week" freeciv development time.

I kind of lost interest, my initial posts were one year ago... maybe one day I'll come back to it. My HRM tickets were ignored more often than not so I stopped posting there.

Proper support for very small screens and touch interaction would probably take few dozens commits, at the review speed I've been experiencing we're talking about several years.
