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.

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...

Y U NO USE FORUMS? Forums.evolutionrts.info

Some people might find the complexity of play in the multiplayer to be intimidating, but once you really understand it you will be able to appreciate the gameplay that rivals top commercial RTS's.

Not to mention, being completely free, the price is right. All that currently lacks is an active player community.
