  1. GLSL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenGL_Shading_Language basically what the fancy shaders for the game are written in and no they are not supported by Microsoft's DX11 the game uses Open Graphics like blender for it's graphical interface as it is cross platform ie: it works on Macs and Linux so we do not have to code three different ways to support these platforms it was developed by Silicon graphics a long time ago then Open sourced from the crash log you posted your driver supports version 4.1.10527 which should be alright though I notice that you also have a INTEL GPU as well which is enabled that may be the issue as Intel's OpenGL support sucks big time.

  2. To find those missing crash files the start menu item for 0 AD has an item to open proper folder they are in. Enjoy the Choice
  3. Just a reminder that on both Linux and OSX putting a "." as the first character of files and folders makes them hidden so to get to them you need the "show hidden files" function of your file browser active. Enjoy the Choice
  4. Ubuntu is a Linux distribution so just follow the Linux instructions the file that you want to edit is in a hidden folder (any file or folder starting with a . is hidden) there is an option in the Ubuntu file browser that un-hides them it should be one of it's menu options I use a different Linux distro that is based on Ubuntu that does not use Ubuntu's Unity desktop so not sure how it works and a heads up Ubuntu has announced that they are dropping Unity for their next release and will be using Gnome 3 instead which Unity is based on.

  5. Your trying to bribe the man not give him a tip for good service. Enjoy the Choice
  6. It comes done to the fact that they Java and Python are not fast enough for intensely graphical games if you don't want tearing and lag on the screen and keeping track of all the units on the screen for pathfinding. Enjoy the Choice
  7. Mongol style horse archers depend on the stirrup for stability in the saddle and the stirrup did not reach the Mediterranean Area till the early Middle Ages same as the horse collar. Enjoy the Choice
  8. When you start the project with in Visual Studio did you use the main menu->Tools &Options->Scenario Editor to start the atlas portion if so if there is something wrong with your build then you should see the relevant errors within the VS window's debug section again the Atlas is not a project it is an integral part of pyrogenesis the .bat file is just a way of passing the --Atlas command line argument to pyrogenesis.exe .And why do run it with VS anyway if the build was successful that is only for debugging not running the app normally.It has been awhile since I built with VS rarely boot my Win10 install any way Enjoy the Choice
  9. Atlas is not a separate project it is part of the main engine code pyrogenesis you run it directly with a command line argument there is no atlas.exe only pyrogenesis.exe does that start if so you can switch to atlas from there. Enjoy the Choice
  10. May be a Phd as in piled higher and deeper looking forward to reading it. Enjoy the Choice
  11. First thing formations are NOT turned on so they just do not work yet period where working on it it's a pathfinder issue till then trying to move 95 units at ounce will put your CPU into overdrive and the display lags big time while it tries the calculate where each @#@!## unit is and wants to go to next while figuring to make sure gets to the attack point on the map it's heavy duty math lad it take time and finding more efficient algorithm just is hard then coding the thing and please remember this an Open Source project we'er all volunteers and most us have a life Enjoy the Choice
  12. Try a few trial matches with small maps at first that should get you a feel for the pace and management of both your economy,structures,foragers, and troops try with the AI till you can get online practice with the game mechanics will always pay off the AI can be brutal when you do get to p to p games that's when you can have fun trashing each other a few games of that nature should give you some ideas on adjusting the map settings to suit your personal taste and your opponents for both challenge and time.

  13. Ram is just a generic term for a male of any of the many sheep breeds. Enjoy the Choice
  14. Most of the default Linux text editors have syntax highlighting and on Windows notepad++ uses the same syntax libraries for an IDE give codeblocks a try as the build scripts generate a codeblocks project. Enjoy the Choice
  15. The GUI elements are all done with Javascript that reference primitive functions written in C++. Enjoy the Choice
