  1. Hi@all,

    When I start 0AD the game uses 100% of the CPU. 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?

  2. 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 :-)

  3. 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:


    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?
