FGL = Freeciv Graphics Layer

Uses SDL, OpenGL, libpng and freetype2.

Fonts in OpenGL is a nightmare. Here are our options as I see them:

- port GLFT to C ([1])
- port GLTT to C ([2])
- use polyfonts ([3])

.ini format Edit

FGL reads all information about how to display and format a particular GUI control (called a 'feature') from an .ini theme file. Each feature has its own section, named [feature_<name of feature>_<screenx>_<screeny>], for example [feature_mapview_1024_768] will give you info on the mapview in the 1024x768 screen resolution.
