Spring is an engine! To play, you need at least one Game and a Map installed!


(after installing a game and map) To start a single-player game use one of the Lobbies for that. A lobby also allows to set more options and can download games and maps, too.

You can also start a game by starting the Spring engine ("Test Spring" in start menu or "spring" in command line):

Then select a game, map and AI and click "Test the Game"

Not all AIs will operate with every game!
