A new war is brewing. A violent conflict, between the Six Colonies, each one convinced that it was in the right, each one sure of its own ability to defeat its enemies. But they need Generals. They need soldiers. They need you.

Ok, here is the deal. Missions must be added through the Desura files, which means that any time I add a mission, they will not be immediately available due to Desura’s approval process. However, Desura...

Is there a comprehensive guide anywhere in the web for using this monstrous Web-/Springlobby (maybe even in german language). I'm unable to launch ANY EvoRTS- game. Neither singleplayer nor multiplayer works. The best result i got during the last two hours of TRIAL+ERROR+GOOGLE was opening a map and choosing a spawnpoint / starting position. That's it, nothing else is happening: The AI-Opponent i configured won't spawn - i myself can't biuld ANYTHING! I'd really love to test the game but this Lobby keeps me from doing so :-(

Finally found some usefull resources and got the game running under Ubuntu. Under Mageia 4 Springlobby still won't let me spawn, but this may certainly be a distro-related Problem, as it doesn't happen under my second OS. Nonetheless i'll post the last error message in the forums - maybe someone can point me to the right direction for getting the game to run even in MGA4.

Wow, the registration dialog has a captcha & a "Human Parsing Question" which asks me to count vowels, sadly it's a little unprecise in telling WHERE to count. I had to guess - quite annoying!
The correct number is 8.

You left before I had a chance to reply and/or help in the lobby.

Ikinz alerted me about 4 minutes after you left. Your issue is simple. The lobby was just hanging up on grabbing a dependency. It's an easy thing to fix and wouldn't ever happen again. I am not one of the lobby developers, but ikinz is.

He could have helped you out if you had stuck around.

He said this to me after you left:
ikinz | [Evo]Forboding_Angel: this guy just made me realize how confusing it must be to try to play evo for the first time if you're not familiar with spring

At which point I explained what the problem was (it's a lobby issue, not a game issue).

To directly answer your question, the lobby IS an installer. It installs maps, game, and engine for you automatically.

If you log in again and say [Evo]Forboding_Angel in the chat, I will get notified. I can solve your issue in 20 seconds (by making the lobby grab the dependency manually) :-)

50 minutes? The file that is downloaded from desura for evo is less than 1mb, so I have no idea what you would have spent 50 minutes downloading.

What browser were you using for weblobby? If internet explorer you will need the Google Chrome Frame plugin ( Google.com ) installed (weblobby prompts you to install GCF if you're on IE).

Other things to consider: You need to have java installed, and you can get the latest version here: Java.com (Chrome users need to install 32bit java due to the fact that chrome is not 64bit and does not support 64bit java)

WebLobby uses a java applet for the lobby and downloads and such, so when you get the prompt that java wants to run on this site, you of course need to allow it.

The best browsers to use for weblobby are Chrome or Firefox, but it will work in anything except Internet Explorer (However, it will work in internet explorer if you have the google chrome frame plugin installed).

I still have no idea what you could have possibly spent 50 minutes downloading... Whatever it was, it wasn't Evolution RTS.

Also, just because it really annoys me...
