You're best start is to get the code compiling and running on your system. We're always on the lookout for new programmers, so if you can help that would be great.

All that should need to happen is for a newer version of SDL to be used with the code. Since the code for FreeOrion is available for anyone to compile, it's really in your hands to make this change. SDL code is outside our control.

I personally considered the wiki also. It would work well for the job, but I don't want every person to be able to upload files. Especially since we'd need to increase the file size. The other thing with the wiki is that it might have a higher traffic rate than a password protected repository - and ...

An artwork repository would be a good idea, and definitely something we'll need. I haven't found a freely available webpackage that I like. Netcollab does the job, but I don't much like it.

Combat is the next big thing. So that would include ship models, icons for battle management (though we'd need a UI design for this first), and anything else related. Ships in 3ds is the best format, I believe. There's still plenty of things in the tech tree which are lacking icons which would be go...

The fix would seem to be to use SDL 1.2.10 with the Windows binary release. That's something that will probably happen eventually. So it won't be fixed in code, it will be fixed when we use the newer SDL version.

I found in this page: http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=393504 "The default fullscreen refresh rate has been increased to match the desktop refresh rate, when using equivalent resolutions. A full API for querying and selecting refresh rates is planned for SDL 1.3." So it may...

FPS is different to refresh rate.

JohnnyB, are you talking about FPS or refresh rate? There's possibly something in the code that could be changed to use the desktop's refresh rate, but I'd need to take a look.

In Windows , you can adjust your monitor's refresh rate by going into control panel, display properties, settings, advanced, adapter, list all modes. Then you can select resolution and refresh rate. A word of warning though - if your monitor is old and doesn't know how to turn itself off, you may da...

I'm not entirely sure, but does sons produce a log file when it attempts to configure/compile an application?

That may contain more information on what failed.
