Re: German Translation

I've found a french version: https://freeorion.org/index.php/Introduction_(rapide)_%C3%A0_FreeOrion Erm, have you checked the last modification date at the bottom of that page...? It's from 2012, almost 8 years ago... I didn't even know that page existed. Good idea, but I think, this must be done b...

Re: CMake / MSVC project files on Windows

I think what Geoff is concerned about, or it's not clear to him how it is supposed to work, is how Visual Studio handles a switching between branches when one creates the project files via cmake and then opens these project files with VS (assuming of course the case where the project structure is di...

Re: CMake / MSVC project files on Windows

If I have to check every time whether I need to generate new project files, and then do so, that is a major delay and disruption in workflow. The solution is refreshed on every build when required without manual intervention. MSVC will at most ask for a reload of the solution. Having the MSVC proje...

Re: CMake / MSVC project files on Windows

The point of generating them from CMake is/would be that one only needs to edit CMake files to do the project file updates for all build systems, including windows, and can do so even without having MSVC to open and do the edits. The point of generating the MSVC project files and committing them is...

Re: CMake / MSVC project files on Windows

I just want the MSVC project files to also be committed after being generated, so that people using MSVC don't need to use CMake to generate the project files. Why? CMake isn't that hard to use? I don't see the problem with expecting anyone who wants to build FO by themselves to be able to handle C...

Re: German Translation

how can I translate the Quick Play Guide to German? Depends on what exactly you mean. If you want to know how to do a translation in general, well, that should be obvious - so I guess that's not what you actually want to know. If you want to know how/where to provide that translation to the public,...

Re: Snap distribution for 0.4.8, 0.4.9 and in future

Don't make decisions you WILL regret later. Why do you think that? Neither feature seems particularly big or impactful enough to have the potential of messing things up so badly that would warrant a reaction similar to the guy in that youtube video ;) Checking for more recent versions is a feature ...

Re: macos, freeOrion 049

Ok, that's strange indeed. As far as I can tell from the screenshot, you'r running FO in windowed mode. What happens if you switch to fullscreen?

Can you post your video settings (first tab in the options dialog, you can provide a screenshot of that if you want)?

Re: Snap distribution for 0.4.8, 0.4.9 and in future

The in-game start screen. Where you start games etc. A release announcement on the in-game start screen? I'm a bit confused about how that's supposed to work - to see that announcement, you already have to have the new release. And the old release won't have that announcement. So I'm not sure what ...

Re: Snap distribution for 0.4.8, 0.4.9 and in future

What i would wish for next release - a release announcement (including or linking release notes) on the start screen. What "start screen" are you referring to? The wiki main page (news section)? If snapcraft ships the default branch feature I will point that to the specific stable branch (e.g. v0.4...

Re: macos, freeOrion 049

@rastafarra, what version of macOS are you on? What are your systems specs (what kind of Mac do you have)? Which version of FreeOrion are you trying to run? The problem in the second screenshot is that obviously the FO server process from your first run somehow remained, which interferes with the se...
