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!
We don't have any binary for Mac OS X as we currently don't have any active OS X developer, so you'll have to compile it yourself following the instructions below. Please help us improve the OS X support by reporting any errors you find, and if you are a programmer please submit patches and if you have knowledge of packaging applications on Mac OS X please assist in making an executable package for Mac.
Compiling on OS X
You need two files:
- 0ad-unix-build.tar.xz (3 MB) or 0ad-unix-build.tar.gz (5 MB)
- 0ad-unix-data.tar.xz (99 MB) or 0ad-unix-data.tar.gz (118 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-r08413-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz tar xvJf 0ad-r08413-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz # Or, if your tar is older than 1.22: xz -cd 0ad-r08413-alpha-unix-build.tar.xz | tar xv xz -cd 0ad-r08413-alpha-unix-data.tar.xz | tar xv # Or, if you downloaded the .gz version: tar xvzf 0ad-r08413-alpha-unix-build.tar.gz tar xvzf 0ad-r08413-alpha-unix-data.tar.gz
Then follow the build instructions using the files from this release instead of downloading from SVN.
