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.

I watched the video and thought this game looked most similar to Supreme Commander, at least on first sight.
What RTS, or group of RTSs, would you say Evolution RTS is most closely like, related to, or inspired from?
I want to DL this and try it out, by my Dfesura account won't connect for some reason....

ps: how did you make those tutorials? I really need to make some for my game.....

Bad for you, you just hit a pet peeve.

Evolution RTS has nothing to do with Supcom. The gameplay is entirely different, the engine is entirely different, in fact, the only commonality that the 2 games share is the fact that they are both RTS games. Evolution RTS is very "Twitch". In a typical multiplayer game, players are throwing armies of units at one another within 2 minutes.

Inspirations for Evolution RTS are mainly Expand & Exterminate, Total Annihilation, and a Sprinkling of StarCrap 2, but it is entirely different from all 3 of them.

What tutorials? You mean the flash ones? I used Wink: Debugmode.com

when I downloaded this through desura it gave me 1.4 and test -129 of the game, not the newest version 1.9. What's the easiest way to get the latest version on windows? Should I just a multiplayer game and download it?

No, you should run it properly from inside desura. That little black window that comes up when it starts is the updater.

Updater window? How do I get that? When I open Desura it shows my list of games, including Evolution RTS, I click that it says "Play" and "Settings". If I click play it takes me to EvoLobby but I only have version 1.4 and -test 129 of the game when I know the latest should be 1.9. No updater window shows. I have just joined a 1.9 multiplayer game and it is downloading the 1.9 files through EvoLobby's download tab not Desura. I have WIndows 7 btw. I can play 1.4 singleplayer but the bots don't appear and the console starts getting errors after a while. I have followed all the tutorials on your site but none show the install process.

You have a bugged install. Desura must have jacked something up. Remove the game, then go into program files/desura/common and delete the "evolution rts" folder (this is to make sure that everything is gone and nothing funky).

Downloading via the lobby only works for maps. Sorry about the confusion.

Can you please post a thread in the forums? This is not the right place for troubleshooting.

If it doesn't work or is exiting with an error or something, I need to know.

Sometimes with old sp1 versions of xp, people don't seem to have some needed dependencies installed (unfortunately I dunno which ones they might be as I am unable to replicate the problem), which causes the updater to crap out (lobby will still load normally, just without the newest version).

I'm adding a new startup script which will update to latest (this already happens) and remove old versions when launching from within Desura.

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.
