The clone attackers


Thanks, this should now be fixed in the latest svn. If you see this again please tell me with details about what map and what time in the game (F12) it happened.

i was see this in various maps,Anatolian Plateu, Lake, and the first time in Laconia map .

Does it occur in latest SVN? I.e. after revision 11765. From your response it sounds like you could be talking about how things were previously.

I believe "AI tries to gather from resources near your base" (in the main section) has been mostly fixed.

Can Trade with Unfinished Markets seems irrelevant now.

I'm not too sure about Units Ignore Orders when Attacked.

The "out of memory" error might still happen in some situations, I believe, but not as commonly.

hi guys,

lovee the game but i reckon two things which are really anoyin. First things is AI prefers building mills instead of attackin me, so if i attack him i find, literally, thousends of them in the enemy teretory. Second, im a defense Player so i bulid a lot castle, towers and wall. At some point AI seems to think that it is not a good idea to attack me anymore and stops every action. Maybe because there are no rescources anymore because AI used it everything to build the Mills...

PS. No native english speaker, still i hope u get what i mean

Well if you look at the revision log, you'll notice that Wraitii has merged his Marilyn bot into qBot. This should make qBot a bit more agressive :)

Technically, there's a new bot (qBot - experimental) that's a merge of both. I'll commit some more changes before Alpha 11, it should prove slightly more of a challenge.

I took the liberty to rearrange the issues, add some details and omit this:

Alpha 9 issues

Out of Memory
There is a known bug in qBot (sorry) in Alpha 9 which means that if you have any qBot's with no units in the game you will probably get some out of memory errors eventually. This is common when testing with a blank map in Atlas (map editor) since by default Atlas has 8 players. If you are playing against multiple qBot's then a workaround is to leave something harmless like a house or tower standing. This is fixed in svn.


I am assuming this was fixed in Alpha 10 and onwards.

obviously the lag is a big problem. Mine even crashed , it was that slow maybe because the map was Continent and its an island. then theres this misplaced shadows thing like the shadow of my wall is too far away from the wall. I also suggest that the fish in the sea should move

I did like the variety of objects in the map editor, how the tiger in the editor is only orange with no stripes. I think there should be more variety of seacreatures and birds like ostriches and dolphins,killer whales. I think that the editor is really hard to use and should be like the one in AOM. I really hope the bugs and problems of this are easily overcome coz it will be the best pc game for me. I congratulate the developers for making the graphics in the game really good and for the variety of objects in the editor. I do think there should be a tutorial coz it will be easier for many to learn from that instead of reading a page.

Thanks for trying out 0 A.D. and coming here to report your problem. As the game is still in alpha releases there are still many things we need to do. Many of these we know already, so when you provide feedback we would ask you to focus on some of the other points that could be improved.

There is a neat table of planned features at http://trac.wildfire...ayFeatureStatus so you can tell what we are planning to add.

Lag
This is a common complaint, and with good reason. The game does not run as fast as we would like. Late in the game you will probably experience some lag, this is caused by a mixture of things, AI and pathfinding are big ones. The problem is worse on island maps and with multiple AI players.

One thing that can be helpful is giving us the profiler information. This automatically generated information is useful for working out where the lag is coming from. If you hit Shift-F11 this will be dumped into a file (location given at the top of the screen). Please upload these data to our forums to help us solve the problem. Thanks!

I've been playing 0AD for a little while now and recently had a great(?) idea for a scenario, so I just started to map it. The editor is actually pretty good, I had little problems using it, though I got little to no experience in this...but after working a few hours on it, trying to save it, I almost got a nervous breakdown cuz the editor refused to save. It's obviously a common problem and that's just logical, because the game has, fortunately, no root access - but even trying to save a map in $HOME fails, cuz the game still tries to write into a root directory.
My question now is:

Why does it write into some root directory at all? Wouldn't it be easy to create a /home/user/.0ad folder, where all scenarios are automatically saved?
I'm now also pondering, whether it makes sense to try some custom made build inside my $HOME, but doubt it would change anything...

The Save As dialog is misleading because it appears to give you the choice of where to save the file, but really it will save it in the currently loaded mod directory. On most OSes that will not be writable and it will fail. Indeed it would make more sense to save them somewhere in the user's home directory, but the engine needs to be modified to handle that and a few other cases. It's on our TODO list ;) Meanwhile, it might have saved the map in the cache folder, can you check that? http://trac.wildfire...i/GameDataPaths

This explains, why the error appeared to be the very same. ;)

I checked the folders, but there's obviously no cached file - there is a "temp.0adsave" I can't attribute to anything, but loading it with editor fails, so I guess it's a game's autosave...?

Have you checked in ~/.cache/0ad/maps/scenarios ? There should be a .xml and a .pmp file for your map.
