Re: Can't start new game with latest weekly build!

I've added some extra logging and some error-safety to some code that might be relevant to the errors reported here. Hopefully will help or narrow down the problem with the next test build.

Re: Create sitrep message when receiving diplomatic offer

What if make diplomacy actions into turn orders? Then there would be situations where players agree between eachother by chatting or external communication that they want to make peace, or some other diplomatic agreement on the current turn, but can't get the diplomacy system to consider them agree...

Re: Create sitrep message when receiving diplomatic offer

An issue with this is that diplomacy is (at least presently) not synchronized with turn cycling. So, a player can send a diplomatic message at any time, and could react to any receive messages at any time, with or without a server turn cycle happening between any of the steps... So how / when exactl...

Re: How to edit savgame file

...since I can't load old saved games to resave them with uncompressed XML, I can't look at their uncompressed XML to find how monster nests are described in the XML file? Not without some some C++ coding. But it might not be helpful anyway, as the XML format of the pre-compression text might be di...

Re: Multiplayer slow game server

Shall I move the running Let's Play game commentary posts to a separate thread, so this thread can be about the server and related issues, rather than a particular game on it?

Re: How to edit savgame file

Could there be one of the new options that I need to set to a certain value in order to get the same correspondence between seed and starting position? Not sure what you mean... If you mean can you reproduce the universe generation in an old version using a newer version by setting an option, no. Y...

Re: How to edit savgame file

At least if you update to a newer version, there is also an option to enable/disable compression for XML saves.

Re: Can't start new game with latest weekly build!

What's the difference between "console" and "command line" ? Do you terminate the program manually or does it abort / exit on its own? I have no idea what you posted in the .rtf file... If I run freeoriond from the windows command prompt, it just sits with the cursor blinking on the next (blank) lin...

Re: Can't start new game with latest weekly build!

Did it sit waiting for network connections, or crash back to the command line? If the latter, was there an error message?

Re: Can't start new game with latest weekly build!

Can you run freeoriond from the console directly and then check the log? Does it run and then sit waiting for connections, or crash back to console?

A wild guess reading the log would be that reading/writig of config values is connected. Please post your config and the configs path.
If that is the case, does deleting config.xml have any effect?

Please open an issue on github.
With a test save file, and perhaps screenshots illustrating the issue, if possible.
