Spring is a free, open source, fully 3D, real-time strategy game engine. Originally designed to run content from Total Annihilation. Since it's early days, the engine has matured significantly. While retaining some support for units in TA formats, games for the Spring Engine can now be developed using more modern technologies. Using the Lua scripting language to allow everything from extending the GUI and Gameplay to Unit Animation, allowing units to be created in modern 3D model formats and an extensible AI framework all while having an open licencing model (GNU GPL), the Spring Engine is an excellent choice for any RTS Game Developer. Many different projects covering a wide range of popular RTS genres and diverse themes have already been built for the Spring Engine establishing it as a key contributor to the future success of open source gaming and free to play games.

I can't manage to get the latest Spring, or the spring lobby just doesn't want to work. Is it discontinued or something?

Okay, I doubt this is the place to put this, but I am a noob...

Every time that I try to start a game in the Spring lobby, the game gets to a loading screen after I push start, and then crashes back the the Spring lobby saying, "Spring has Crashed", and something like, "a stacktrace has been written to infolog.text". I looked around in that text file, but the computer's language is way beyond me, and I don't understand where the problem is. Does anyone have a possible solution?

I am using bots. The same problem for every mod I have. Only tried one map, but I doubt that's the problem.

The games for this look really fun...

Sorry to bore you, Thanks

Most of the bots are *A only. If you are playing BA, then try using RAI or KAIK. AAI usually doesn't work all that well.

There are a couple mod specific ais you could try to work with.

Try using RAI works best,everything thats JAVA AI or NULL something dont use those are just for testing only, anyways if the problem persists visit spring main website and post detailed information.

I must say you should try multiplayer its the best part of this game, there are a couple Ais,but essencialy you are looking at a epic multiplayer RTS experience.
