How to install the latest version on Mac OS X
Warning: The game is currently under heavy development, and many features are currently missing. This release is an alpha version, not a completed playable game - please check our site and forums for future updates!
A DMG package is now available for OS X. It requires Snow Leopard (10.6) or later and a 64-bit Intel Mac. Download the DMG, open it, then drag-and-drop 0ad.app to the location of your choice, typically the Applications directory.
Download the OS X .dmg package (390 MB).
Compiling on OS X
You need two files:
- 0ad-unix-build.tar.xz (8 MB) or 0ad-unix-build.tar.gz (9 MB)
- 0ad-unix-data.tar.xz (281 MB) or 0ad-unix-data.tar.gz (346 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-r11339-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz tar xvJf 0ad-r11339-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz # Or, if your tar is older than 1.22: xz -cd 0ad-r11339-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz | tar xv xz -cd 0ad-r11339-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz | tar xv # Or, if you downloaded the .gz version: tar xvzf 0ad-r11339-alpha-unix-build.tar.gz tar xvzf 0ad-r11339-alpha-unix-data.tar.gz
Then follow the build instructions using the files from this release instead of downloading from SVN.
