Version 18 (modified by Langbart, 12 months ago) ( diff )

Clarify the location of macOS according to feedback from two sources.

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/ Windows 10

For saved games, replays, 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\

Note: When starting 0 A.D. with the -writableRoot start parameter, runtime game data are stored in the root data directory (only use if you have write permissions on that directory). In case of using an SVN version, this would be under \trunk\binaries\data\

XP / 2000

For saved games, replays, 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.


macOS

Apple's guidelines are followed as closely as possible.

Non-cache data: config e.g. user.cfg, logs e.g. crashlog.txt, mods, replays, screenshots and save files

  • /Users/{YOUR USERNAME}/Library/Application\ Support/0ad/

Cached data:

  • /Users/{YOUR USERNAME}/Library/Caches/0ad/

Note:

The Library folder is hidden by default, here are two ways to reach the 0ad folder:

  1. Open Finder and press Shift+cmd+G and enter ~/Library/Application Support/0ad or
  2. press Shift+cmd+. and navigate to the path above.


Linux

Standard XDG base directories are used.

For most data created during the game (replays, screenshots, savegames):

  • ~/.local/share/0ad/
  • Up to A19, replays would be found in ~/.config/0ad/logs/sim_log

For user config and logs:

  • ~/.config/0ad/

For cached data:

  • ~/.cache/0ad/

For users who installed the the game using Snap use this as the 'home' directory:

  • ~/snap/0ad/current/

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