Running the Game

For Windows Users: To run the game, you have one of two choices:

  • Run the game by double clicking the pyrogenesis.exe file in the /binaries/system folder
  • Build and run the program from within the Visual Studio IDE

To change the resolution of the game: or to switch the game between full-screen / windowed mode, you have to modify the system.cfg file, in the following manner:

  • Change windowed=false to windowed=true
  • Uncomment (remove the ';') from the following lines:
;xres = 1024

;yres = 768
  • You can change the numbers to whatever pixel size is desired. Note that 1024x768 or larger is recommended because that's the minimum size required by the GUI; you might otherwise run into layout or scaling issues

For more info on how to actually play the game see the Playing 0 A.D. guide
