  1. What does "CS" stand for? Supporters are the spiritual ones who heal? Champs are then the heroes?
  2. Ok, Javelin, Pike and sword are melee weapons. I group them together. What to do with the slingers and the archers? In a separate group or integrate them into the group with the melee fighters? Then I have siege weapons (catapult). Do I make a group for that too? I suppose I position them behind the other two so that they are protected, right? So that's my position (from front to back): infantry & cavalry slingers & Archers Catapults I hope I have understood it correctly. Thank you for your patience!!!!!!! with best pixel24
  3. I am concerned with the handling / organisation in combat. I don't think I'm doing that optimally. I always moved the whole troop together and left it in formation when attacking. I guess I have to form smaller blocks and control them separately. Just like it was in the battles in the past. But here I don't know: which units are best combined?
  4. ok. Then that makes sense. I finally managed the map yesterday with Medium / Balanced. :-)
  5. Hi@all, I am currently "fighting" the map: "Duel on the Cliff". The settings: Medium & Balanced. For practice, I started the map with "explored". I saw that all the opponents already have defence towers and others. Isn't that a bit unfair? with best pixel24
  6. Hi@all, I would still call myself a beginner in 0 AD. I play Alpha25 under Linux. How do I learn to place and organise troops better in a battle? Do you make groups with certain troops here? Is there any help (text or video) on this somewhere? I would be grateful for tips :-) with best pixel24
  7. Thank you for the tips. I will test it. I need to get better acquainted with the control/grouping of troops in battle.
  8. Hi@all, I like to play with the Ptolemies. What is the most effective means of eliminating enemy war elephants? with best pixel24
  9. Hi@all, I am still a beginner with 0AD. In an announcement on gnulinux.ch I read that Alpha25 now also offers Campania. Is there somewhere an overview of the available campanias and how I install them? with best pixel24
  10. Thanks, I will try it. Didn't my troops do this on their own before? Or am I mistaken?
  11. Hi@all, I have only updated to version Alpha25. I have only played in this version for a short time. I noticed that troops that cut wood, for example, do not attack attacking opponents. Although these are in the immediate vicinity. Although my troops are set to: "Aggressive, attacking close opponents". This was different before. What am I doing wrong? with best pixel24
  12. Hey, yes it worked. I could have seen for myself :-( Thanks a lot :-)
  13. Hi@all, I just downloaded the Alpha25 from the ppa: https://launchpad.net/~xtradeb/+archive/ubuntu/play installed. Now when I try to start a single game -> skirmish I immediately get "You won" for all games with 2 players. What is wrong there? with best pixel24
  14. ok, I set all graphics options to the lowest value. CPU load is now at 50%. The fan is still running continuously :-(

Therefore the fan runs all the time and the notebook gets warm accordingly. i have tried to limit the process (0ad) with the help of cpulimit but it does not work me@lt001:/usr/games$ cpulimit --pid 4342 -c 1 -l 1 Process 4342 detected is there a way to limit the CPU load when starting 0AD? with best pixel24
  16. Hi@all, the manual says that the key / selects idle units. Unfortunately this does not work for me :-) Tested on Ubuntu 20.04 & 20.10
  17. Hi@all, in the game the manual is shown to me in german. Great! But when I click "View Online" it comes in english. Is the German version also available online? I would like to print it out :-) with best pixel24
  18. ok, I found the problem. If you install 0.A.D in the Ubuntu Software Center it will be installed as SNAP. Thereby ~/.config/0ad is not created. Creating it afterwards has no effect. Remove 0.A.D. in the Software Center and install 0ad with apt install. After that .config/0ad/config/user.cfg exists and you can set the value gui.scale. Now I can explore the game :-)
  19. yes. ~/.config/0ad/config/user.cfg $ echo $XDG_CONFIG_HOME /home/me/.config The variable $XDG_CONFIG_HOME was not set. I set it afterwards.
  20. Hi@all, I want to play 0.A.D. under Ubuntu 20.04 on my laptop with HiDPI display (3840x2160) But the font in the game is not visible and much too small. I have tried the solution mentioned here and the file: ~/.config/0ad/config/local.cfg with the content: gui.scale = 1.8 I tried different values and also renamed the file to user.cfg. But nothing changes in the game. What am I doing wrong? with best pixel24
