Hello again developer, I think I found the problem my operating system is 32. And now how am I going to be able to play the game?

Sorry, I checked this again – the (windows) application is 32 bit, not 64 bit. So it should theoretically run on your system. But I don’t know why it doesn’t run on your PC. I will let you know as soon as I have a solution or an idea that could help you.

ok developer

Hello developer, I did not receive any error message just the executable of the game that does not open in the version of my pc (windows 7).

There could be different reasons for this kind of problem.

First of all: did you unzip the game? (It will not run from within the zip archive.)

Do you use a 32 or a 64-bit system? This game is a 64-bit application and will not run on a 32-bit system.

If this is not the case then the reason could be a missing library. Maybe it is a graphics issue (despite the fact that this is a pixel art game, it makes use of some more advanced graphics functionality).
If you are a more experienced user you could try to start the game from command line:

  1. press Win + R
  2. type "cmd.exe" and hit enter to open the command line
  3. navigate to the folder where you unzipped the game (something like "cd C:\path\to\the\game\")
  4. type "TinyPixelWars_Windows.exe" and hit enter to start the game

If the command line spits out some error message then please let me know.

I will also see if I can find something that might cause this problem.

Hello developer of the game, I need help, because the game does not open on my pc. Can someone help me?

Hello! Do you get any error message(s)? Which operating system do you use?

This game is very cool, well it could have a multiplayer mode in the future.

(1 edit)

its really fun and hard in this game :D but i still like it as a rts lover!!!

theres still a lot to improve like the ai and after you create a control group, please make the screen goes to that group screen after clicking the group number :D

hope you winning the competition!

Thank you! Yes there is a lot to improve: lots of small bugs and glitches – and the ai really needs some fixes. At the moment I don't have much time but the game will definitely get some updates and maybe some new features – eventually there will come a campaign, too.

ask me if you need more footage!

Sure, I will.

By the way, I won the competition :)

WOWWWW.... Congratulation on your winning!!!

Thank you :)

i cant seems to play it properly, the screen didnt fit in my 1920x1280 resolution

I found a bug with the game Window – the fixed Version is on-line. I hope this solves your resolution problem.

Okay, I fixed the bug, and uploaded a version that missed a file. If it didn't work, it is not your fault. I have uploaded It a second time – this time with all needed files – hope it works now ;)

thank you for your quick response. I love rts genre like this and now im trying to make some video about good rts in itch.io. Will download and try it :D

Played a bit of this on my channel! Sorry for being the worst at RTS games. :|

Hey thanks for playing!

Btw, if you want units to attach enemies on their way, send them with the »attack« command (press [A] or click the crosshair button in the bottom left corner before sending them). Saves you a lot of time and trouble ;)
