This page describes the paths for data created during the game. For the layout of data bundled with the game, see Finding Your Way Around.

Windows

Note: If you only want to find the game's logs on Windows and you installed an Alpha release, use the Start menu > 0 A.D. alpha > Open logs folder shortcut; SVN users can run source/tools/openlogsfolder/OpenLogsFolder.bat instead.

Vista or newer

For saved games, screenshots and mod data (eg: saved maps):

  • C:\Users\JohnDoe\Documents\My Games\0ad\
  • Just view "Documents" or "My Documents" in Explorer.

For logs and cache:

  • C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Local\0ad\
  • You can use the %localappdata% variable as a shortcut: %localappdata%\0ad\

For user config and possibly other user data:

  • C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Roaming\0ad\
  • You can use the %appdata% variable as a shortcut: %appdata%\0ad\

XP / 2000

For saved games, screenshots and mod data:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\JohnDoe\My Documents\My Games\0ad\
  • Just view "My Documents" in Explorer.

For logs and cache:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\JohnDoe\Local Settings\Application Data\0ad\

For user config and possibly other user data:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\JohnDoe\Application Data\0ad\
  • You can use the %appdata% variable as a shortcut: %appdata%\0ad\

Note: These paths are localized, for instance in German the logs path is C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Max Mustermann\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\0ad\logs.


OS X

Apple's guidelines are followed as closely as possible.

For non-cache data created during the game:

  • ~/Library/Application\ Support/0ad/

For cached data:

  • ~/Library/Caches/0ad/

Note: "~" is a shorthand for the current user directory.


Linux

Standard XDG base directories are used.

For most data created during the game:

  • ~/.local/share/0ad/

For user config and logs:

  • ~/.config/0ad/

For cached data:

  • ~/.cache/0ad/

Note: "~" is a shorthand for the current user directory.
