  1. Hi... I don't think my laptop (an HP Pavilion dv9830us made in 2008) would run 12.04 very well along with the fact I don't care for the look of Unity. Apart from that, why upgrade from an OS that has been pleasant to use and very reliable overall? At the point in the future when I absolutely I have to upgrade, it would need to be a lightweight distribution like Lubuntu or Puppy. So there is no package anywhere on the net that is what I'm looking for? EDIT: I see this page here but I don't see any debs. Regards...
  2. Hi all... I just tried to install 0ad again and I noticed the game wasn't showing up in Synaptic even though I reenabled the PPA. in Software Sources. I'm guessing this is because 10.04 is longer being fully supported. But is there a way I can download the packages of the old alpha 11 game from somewhere? That is what I had last. Thanks!
  3. Ah, I see. Best not to get me started on that.... Regards...
  4. Thank you but I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Regards...
  5. Hi guys... After playing the current alpha for a while, I would like to make some observations (and request changes) that quite possibly have been mentioned before by others... 1. The elephants don't walk (move their legs) as the other animals do nor do they make an elephant sound when they die in battle, they make a sound of a horse! Is a fix for this in the works? I like the sound the elephants make in AOE II, not to brash or loud. 2. Increase the overall amount of metal one can gain in trade (market place.) As so many of the units, buildings and technologies in the game depend on this reso
  6. Thank you, dvangennip, for your information, ticket and link. Hope this gets resolved by the time the next release comes out. Regards...
  7. Hi all... From what I understand reading the history section in the game, the female villagers were supposed to respond to an attack by fighting back but in a game that ended a few minutes ago (playing the Spartans,) the villagers tried to walk away instead. Does anyone have an idea as to why this happened and how to fix it? Regards...
  8. Hi... Is this the feature that allows you to create your own scenerios? Regards...
  9. Hi all.... Never mind, I found this... http://www.wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=15796 "This is a temporary measure for Alpha 11 to prevent abusing the hero system. It is intended for any player to have at most one living hero at a time. This limit will be introduced after Alpha 11." That's too bad...
  10. Hi all... I'm not sure if it has to do with the choice of AI's, but for some reason, after installing the new Alpha 11 release, I can no longer purchase many of the special units or heroes, such as Leonidas or Xerxes. The thumbnail is grayed out and I'm told that it will be available in a future release. Can anyone tell me why that is? Game lag and choppiness is still pretty bad when playing with more than one AI player. On the plus side, I do appreciate the new shared LOS between allies. Also, as a suggestion for a future release, it would be helpful if we could build towers or other defensi
  11. Hi all.... I was thinking along the lines of a morale boost as well, such as increased hit points when your soldiers are attacked or more damage inflicted on the enemy when you attack. Regards...
  12. Hi... I didn't know that, thanks! I would suspect that there would be a slight difference when the AI is able implement the technologies. Regards...
  13. Hi all... I tried out version 10 today and although it was nice having the additional maps and nations, I can't say I really cared for the "town upgrade" feature reminiscent of Age of Empires. Although, what is nice about it is that it takes longer for the AI to attack you, allowing you more time to build up your defenses. While I realize the game is still in Alpha, The AI is still in need of a lot of work. I was playing the "Third Macedonian War" map and had opted to play the Macedonians. The army I was given was sufficient to eliminate the small Roman town or outpost. However, by that time,
