Hotkeys

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

Hotkeys

in my localisation have troubles. Anytime all hotkeys disappear completely. Nothing helps. At least switch EN/RU, even back to... Only restart freeciv. Why?

yes, 2.5.11 for LT47 :)

I can even write Russian letters in the game chat and have hot keys. And everything is fine. Hotkeys there. And suddenly in half an hour, or in ten minutes - bang, and the hot keys disappeared. This is not just me.

Try earlier versions, 2.5.9 or 2.5.7.

Have you tried clicking on the map with the left mouse button?

I remember that a long time ago (1.x days), sometimes when you typed a tiny window with a text field would appear and steal your input (never understood how it worked, and no it wasn't malware). It could be closed by hitting ESC or Enter, so maybe try that too?
