Obtaining the latest release
Warning: The game is currently under heavy development, and many features are currently missing. This release is a development snapshot, not a completed playable game - please check our site and forums for future updates!
Run the game from binaries\system\pyrogenesis.exe. If you want to modify and compile the game yourself, follow the build instructions using the files from this release instead of downloading from SVN.
SHA1 digest (to verify the download):
Unofficial packages may exist or be in development for several distros:
- Ubuntu 10.04 (from PlayDeb.net - see the installation instructions)
- Gentoo (both latest release and latest SVN)
- Arch Linux (AUR): both releases and latest SVN packages
If you use a different distro, or if these packages are outdated, or if you want to edit or debug the code, see the next section. If you want to help create a package yourself, we have some rough guidance.
Compiling on Linux and OS X
You need two files:
- 0ad-unix-build.tar.xz (3 MB) or 0ad-unix-build.tar.bz2 (4 MB)
- 0ad-unix-data.tar.xz (98 MB) or 0ad-unix-data.tar.bz2 (113 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-r07732-pre-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz tar xvJf 0ad-r07732-pre-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz # Or, if your tar is older than 1.22: xz -cd 0ad-r07732-pre-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz | tar xv xz -cd 0ad-r07732-pre-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz | tar xv # Or, if you have the .bz2 version: tar xvjf 0ad-r07732-pre-alpha-unix-build.tar.bz2 tar xvjf 0ad-r07732-pre-alpha-unix-data.tar.bz2
Then follow the build instructions using the files from this release instead of downloading from SVN.
Experimental Linux packages
Warning: These are very new and have not been tested, so they may not work at all. If you try them, please report any success or failure on the forum.
- sudo sh -e'echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/Debian_5.0/ /" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/obs-games.list'
- sudo apt-get update
