I have just installed FreeCiv 2.2.3. (iMac 24", 2.8GHz Core2Duo. MacOS X
I played a game for about 7 turns. The problem applies to both the manual
and the auto saves.
When I relaunched FreeCiv, and asked to load the game, I got an error message
file "/opt/com.bitaxis/share/freeciv/default/nations.ruleset", line 241, pos
; the line
does not have a closing " (double quote).
It is not clear to me why, but the saves are, within my home folder, in a
. This seems strange because the folder is invisible. (That is: I believe
that there is an invisible folder with that name, as I believe that names
starting with “.” are supposed to be invisible, and the program behaves
as though the folder is there.) Is that a separate issue?
As I noted in the summary, my slightly educated guess would be that the "
(double quote) was put in and then chopped off.
For the record, v2.1.3 worked fine (in this respect).
p.s. Thank-you everyone!
