chmod a+x
This changes the permissions on to make it an executable program.
/bin/bash: ./build_tools/autorevision: Permission denied
Likely, this is the result of trying to build using 'sudo'. Generally speaking, you never need to build as root. (install as root, yes. build, no)

Simplest advice: to delete your source tree and start over. Don't use sudo

Okay, so I'm running 3.1 on Ubuntu 12.04. I've found the hidden folder in the Terminal but I've got no clue how to put maps from the community here into my game. Does anyone know how I do that? Sorry for my incompetence :P

Either use cp command in terminal or press ctrl+h (i guess, or whatever) in file manager to show hidden files and folders.

I had to "touch autorevision.cache" in the src/ directory. (missing file?) Then it proceeded, but bombed out later with some other recursive build error. I was grinding my teeth.

I just installed the latest master, which is noted on the forum topic "testers wanted" and that compiled. I think I still had to do that "touch" bit though. I'm running Debian Jessie 64.

There is the link to the newest master build for testing. Enjoy!
Oh yes, do the / etc as user, not root. If you did use the root user, you might need to delete the folder and untar the downloaded file again to start cleanly. If it compiles cleanly, cd into src/ and run the resultant ./warzone2100 file to see if it runs correctly, as user, BEFORE you install it, which you do as root user.

If you are testing, there is no need to do the install step. you can run warzone2100 from the src dir as described above.

If you are on Ubuntu (and derivatives) and don't mind to add an extra repository to your system, you could install it from

Here's the link on how to install the repo:

After adding the repository, you can install the fresh version from your terminal, software center, Synaptic or whatever you prefer after updating your software sources. (sudo apt-get update)

They always support the last long term support and the latest versions of Ubuntu (and Ubuntu based ;) ). Also keep in mind, that they might need a week or two until they put up updates to their repository.

I use it, because they got WZ2100, Xonotic, GemRB, ScummVM and mednafen together with a lot of other great games and emulators up there. ;)

The also have an application repository... ;)
