To compile 0 A.D. from the source, you need two files:
- 0ad-unix-build.tar.xz (19 MB) or 0ad-unix-build.tar.gz (21 MB)
- 0ad-unix-data.tar.xz (562 MB) or 0ad-unix-data.tar.gz (697 MB)
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-0.0.17-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz tar xvJf 0ad-0.0.17-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz # Or, if your tar is older than 1.22: xz -cd 0ad-0.0.17-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz | tar xv xz -cd 0ad-0.0.17-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz | tar xv # Or, if you downloaded the .gz version: tar xvzf 0ad-0.0.17-alpha-unix-build.tar.gz tar xvzf 0ad-0.0.17-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.
