Freeciv 2.2.2 + Snow Leopard = Half Joy

Got some feedback on the Freeciv forum regarding Freeciv 2.2.2 on Snow Leopard. While the SDL version works but without sound, the GTK (X11) version does not. I asked the kind poster for more info, let's see what comes of it.

There is a workaround to enable sounds in the SDL version. Read about it here.

Freeciv 2.2.2 Trifecta

Freeciv 2.2.2 came out not long ago. I put together the following Mac OS X packages for it:

  • GTK version for Intel, 10.5.8+

  • SDL version for Intel, 10.5.8+

  • GTK version for PowerPC, 10.4.11

These also install into /opt/com.bitaxis instead of the canonical /opt/local directory used by MacPorts. Hence, they are now compatible with MacPorts.

You can check them out here.
