New Release: 0 A.D. Alpha 23 Ken Wood Wildfire Games, an international group of volunteer game developers, proudly announces the release of 0 A.D. Alpha 23 “Ken Wood”, the twenty-third alpha v

I've been really busy these past two years but found time to play the new release. Round of applause to everyone who made this happen!

I need to say here, thanks for A23! Increible work at Jebel Barkal ! I need more like that... The release video is one of the best seen for 0 A.D.

Thanks for the new release !

Anyway, trying to get it using the Install intructions for Ubuntu results in:

laurent@Hoedic:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wfg/0ad
 0 A.D. (pronounced "zero ey-dee") is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. In short, it is a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of Western civilizations, focusing on the years between 500 B.C. and 500 A.D. The project is highly ambitious, involving state-of-the-art 3D graphics, detailed artwork, sound, and a flexible and powerful custom-built game engine.

I was able to install it on OS X and played for an hour on SP but didn’t try to join the MP though but will try after work to see if there’s an issue.

I tried the 0abc mod and it loaded up but I didn’t see the silver resources on it so I abandoned the game thinking it wasn’t the mod. Will try again sooner. The vox populli seems to have an error that seems not supported. There were only 3 mods onto it, 0abc, vox and user_1 mod.

From the svn games previously the captured (by wololo) unit(of different faction) can’t build the unit factions own building anymore so that’s the only thing that will prevent me from being immersed on SP. Hopefully MP games would be much much better this time since it’s fun really to play with buddies.

However, on Linux, I'm unable to host a game. When I click the button to do so, nothing happens.

You mean the match setup screen doesn't even show up or just noone joining?

Hi, thank you everyone for this amazing release. I am just wondering how long does it usually take for package repositories (`ppa:wfg/0ad`) to update to the latest version?

Thank you very much and I am very excited to play Alpha 23!

Never mind, I solved my own issue. I couldn't get the match setup screen to show up. However, a simple "rm -rf ~/.config/0ad" and relaunch fixed it. I should have tried that first.
