This is the FreeCol bug tracker. If you think you have found a bug this is the place to report it, except:

  • If it is a translation issue. Any text message in FreeCol is orignally written in English and then translated by the volunteers at translatewiki. If you have found a problem in non-English text, please go there to fix it. Only the translatewiki maintainer commits changes to FreeCol translations. OTOH, if a translated message contains strings "%like% %this%" (that is, English words enclosed in percentage signs) that is a FreeCol bug. Except, if the words are not in English, then it is a translation bug again. I hope that was clear!

  • If it is a difference between FreeCol and Colonization 1. These should go on the Pending Features for FreeCol tracker. There is further discussion of such issues on the What Would Col1 Do? wiki.

  • If it is a request for an improvement rather than an actual bug. These go here.

Known Common Bugs

Hangs due to hidden dialogs

There are ongoing issues with dialogs and popups disappearing behind the main FreeCol map, particularly on Windows and with full screen mode. This makes the game appear to hang. See bug report #2328 for some discussion of workarounds. As far as we can tell this is a Java library issue, not something we can fix in FreeCol.

Early window mode changes

Users of openJDK may encounter crashes and hangs when switching from windowed to full screen mode or vice versa, especially during the opening video bug report #2611. This is due to a known bug in openJDK. Workarounds have been tried unsuccessfully, for now please just wait until into the game proper before changing windowed mode. Hopefully the openJDK bug will be fixed soon.

Turn report font

Sometimes the turn report uses the wrong font. This is mysterious. If you are able to reproduce the problem reliably, or have an idea as to what triggers it, please comment on bug report #2662.
