Recommended Posts

Dowlnoadpage https://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html

Standard setting during install will work

After finishing installation create a new folder in your Userdirectory. It should be located in "C:\users\username" . I called my directory "0adsvn"

Then right click on the new created directory and choose "SVN Checkout..."

In the Checkout mask just enter the URL of repository: "http://svn.wildfiregames.com/public/ps/trunk"
Then click on "OK"

Now it starts downloading the 0ad SVN version. Depending on your Inet speed this will take 20-45 minutes and needs arround 1,5 -2GB free HardDisk Space

After the checkout is complete, you can start the SVN game from the "pyrogenesis.exe" binary wich is located in your created folder under \binaries\system\
I created a shortcut for this and placed it on my desktop.

Dont forget to updated your 0ad SVN copy every time you going to play in svn. This can easily be done by right click on your 0adsvn directory and choosing "SVN Update"

Have fun :victory:

Thanks for the instructions! I had actually downloaded svn before your post, but when I select my folder, I don't have the "svn update" icon...

Edit: I solved the issue by selecting my binaries file, because the url of repository I wrote had "binaries" after "trunk"...

Small correction: the folder doesn't need to be in C:\users\username. I've mine located on an external HDD in the root folder 'D:\'.

Is the URL of repository still the same? I've been unable to play for a long time, because none of the last versions worked for me...

Try delete all and do a new folder.

Yes, but after migrating the repo to the "new" server we only serve it over https, so you'll have to fix that in your local copy (some clients ask you as there is a redirect).

I changed the address, the result is still the same. Nothing's working...

Mame an another folder, and start again, may be delete cache ... that's works fine for me many times.
