Installing Development Version - Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was trying to install the dev version according to the info in the website (add ppa 0ad.dev) but the packages there seem to be the same as the current release of the game. Can anyone help me? What is the easiest way to install the dev version on Ubuntu?

Will it affect my default installation of the game ?

It shouldn't but depending on what you touch it might have an influence. For instance, both will share the same user.cfg unless you run the dev version with -writableRoot (Notice it only has one '-') this flag makes the game portable. https://trac.wildfiregames.com/browser/ps/trunk/binaries/system/readme.txt line 68

Can I ran it from the folder where it is compiled ?

Sure just go in wherever you cloned it and run ./pyrogenesis -writableRoot

'--' should also work fine.
