While there's still more scenarios to update to 2.5 format in patch #3864, all scenarios that had format older than 2.0 have now been updated, i.e., all scenarios should now have format version currently supported.

Sorry, i didn't realize that our scenario formats are that old when dropping support for loading ancient saves from TRUNK version.

As per patch #3864, plan is to update scenarios to 2.5 format once the format is frozen. I also hope to make that update part of normal release cycle so that scenarios are updated again once 2.6 format freezes.

I'm unable to load most of the scenarios which are distributed with Freeciv trunk. I get the error message:
"Saved game is too old, at least version 2.0.0 required."

Looking at for example europe-200x100-v2.sav, I see that version=11105 while the savegame loading code requires at least 20000. So do the savegames have to be updated, or is this a bug in the savegame loading code?
