Modpack installer doesn't work on Windows

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

Modpack installer doesn't work on Windows

Postby me21 » Fri May 24, 2013 5:12 pm

Hello,

I've installed Freeciv 2.3.4 using official Windows binaries. The modpack installer says it can't download modpack list. I've installed Freeciv on 4 computers - Windows XP SP3 x86, Windows Vista SP2 x86, Windows 7 Starter SP1 x86 and Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64. Everywhere's the same outcome. How can I install modpacks?
Thanks!

Works for me, on Windows and Unix.

On these machines, can you manually view http://download.gna.org/freeciv/modinst/2.3/modpack.list in a browser? That's the initial URL the installer will try to use.

Are you behind a web proxy, or anything like that?

Yes, browser opens that URL. I don't think it's proxy, I tried it from home and two mobile internet providers. Does installer write any log file?
