Ok, this might be the reason, since there are no compatible games announced
right now.

OK, tcpdump reveals that freeciv loads the data from metaserver.

See also this forum post: http://forum.freeciv.org/viewtopic.php?t=7009

A message "no servers with your freeciv version" might be suitable.

yes, i tried that before.

What remains is:

starting problems from command line (wrong path/environment?)

no hint for missing servers in metaserver

no hint for gaming zone (?)



good luck
