0 A.D. Source Code

To compile 0 A.D. from the source, you need two files:

The .xz files are smaller but may require you to install XZ Utils.

Extract both files to the same location:

# Extract .xz version into the current directory:
tar xvJf 0ad-0.0.18-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz
tar xvJf 0ad-0.0.18-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz

# Or, if your tar is older than 1.22:
xz -cd 0ad-0.0.18-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz | tar xv
xz -cd 0ad-0.0.18-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz | tar xv

# Or, if you downloaded the .gz version:
tar xvzf 0ad-0.0.18-alpha-unix-build.tar.gz
tar xvzf 0ad-0.0.18-alpha-unix-data.tar.gz

Then follow the build instructions using the files from this release instead of downloading from SVN.

0 A.D. is Still a Work in Progress

The game is currently under heavy development, and many features are currently missing. This release is an alpha version, not a complete game.
