The intro screen says r32928. Madness, apparently I shreddered the setup file. But http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=315&start=60#p5101 confirms r32928.

> I'm not sure why "local options" checks an unused tileset

That's needed for listing available tilesets as options for tileset selection field.

Playing classic 2.6alpha I got barbarians in turn 90. That's rather late, therefore I wanted to check the options (in a gtk2 Windows 32 bits client.)

This triggered an error message, that tileset TMP/128x84.spec is presumably incompatible with 2.6. In fact it was a quick and dirty alio arrangement by a (2014) script assuming that 2.6 will use the same capability string as 2.5, because I needed some missing alio images on the wiki.

I'm not sure why "local options" checks an unused tileset, but it's okay. But after that error message I should be allowed to continue my classic Amplio2 game, but instead the client simply terminated itself, no additional error message, no stderr.txt, no RPT-file, just quitting.

Attached: Bogus TMP-tilespec + TMP/128x64.spec + TMP/128x64.png.
