hello i installed freeciv under windows nt and when i change default tileset to another and need to shave changes i get a 'cant write to "%userprofile%/.civclientrc" ....
i created the %userprofile% var and still got the error
the possible causes are the '/' not being '\' or the file name '.xxx' ( windows doesnt suport filenames without a name before the '.'
Curious, do you have full write/change permission for the civlientrc file? Try logging in NT (4.0?) with admin rights to see if the same warning pops up.
You can also load a different tileset with the --tiles (tilesetname) option.
