I installed it last night. Played a practice session of Stee's tiny islands config. Nobody else connected
Anyhow, glad to see Davide moved the config file over. Didn't test any others, though. I'm sure they are there. Noticed that national borders were *not* appearing. Not sure if that was a function of the config file, or a default setting on the server. If default, that might need to be fixed.
Otherwise, glad to see that the plugins downloaded perfectly on my Wintel machine. However, over the years I simply copied many files over from the Data directory from a previous version into the Data directory for the latest version (example: freesounds soundspec files, civ2civ3 files, amplio, etc...). For the first time ever, freesounds didn't work with the new version. I had to download it and install using the plugins tool. I suppose there is a subtle difference in the files for 2.4.0, but I wasn't that intrigued to figure it out since all I wanted was to get it working (which I did).
Some interesting added touches and minor changes in this version. Unit selection for unit stacks was the first thing that I noticed. Nicely done. Also, noticed a new menu item under Game regarding saving Map images. Not sure about the purpose of that.
Will new games of GT be running on 2.4.0 ?
