Evolve instead of Tunngle for multiplayer? was created by Slippery Jim
In the GOG.com forums someone mentioned an app called Evolve to play Swat 3 in multiplayer.

Has anyone tried it out yet? It looks a lot more advanced than Tunngle and claims to have built in Voip chat.

It is also supposed to work fine with the Last Resort mod. :lol:

There seems to be more features if you pay them money but perhaps the free version is still useful.

Used it briefly in the past, can't recall why over Tunngle but seemed to work, never tried VOIP though or even joining a public channel for that matter.

Just setup a quick party to play with one other person, and have not tried it with SWAT.

What was your overall impression? Did it feel like a quality product? I assume there is advertisements on the free version?

Didn't use it long enough to say, I don't really recall any advertisements, at least nothing close to what Tunngle throws at you.

Half the UI is ADs then Pop Ups O.o

I haven't used Tunngle in a while. Sounds like they filled it with adverts. Ugh.

I just read this post on a website when people were discussing GameRanger, Hamachi, Evolve:

If you don't mind console tools, you can use pptpd. Main advantage? You don't need to install any client on windows, it has support out of the box.


Trying to read what it is and see if it will help with Swat 3 multiplayer. Would be great to find an open source tool that we could modify. I like to dream.

Maybe something like written in Java:

I integrated an OPEN SOURCE VPN into Swat 3 years ago, 2011 to be exact, you turned it down. :(

Remember this?



You choose a server and hit connect, if user receives ping, the connect button will be green.
The servers can also be pinged and color updated to represent if they are on or offline. Other options like choosing wether to show connection CMD prompt, or hide cmd prompt, and/or run as service can be listed in the Multi-Player Tab.

It was complete with a mysql database of users, from which a program similar to the AccountWizard can create new accounts, modify password, modify username. The installer was complete with an updater to update client files and to update available servers to connect to.

Bounty, beckett and I was talking about this on TS a few days ago, and it seems possible to connect and disconnect, join server locations from in the game using con files, but my idea was to integrate it with the LastResort Mod as in my representation of the server tab in the picture above.

Unfortunately it was soo long ago that I cannot locate the server files. I found the client installer, but without the server files for a server host provider to host its useless.

After talking to bounty and running test thru the con files, it seems possible to do something to completely integrate it, but I am hesitant in recreating the server files and updating the client installer becuase of the lack of interest back when I created these files, and i feel it will be a waste of time again.

HERE IS THE LINK TO THE READ ME if anyone is interested in reading more about it.

I have absolutely no recollection what you are talking about. :blink:

As for the screenshot this is complete fiction since it never happened and I haven't given out the Launcher code, lol.

All I remember was you tried to get me to install a VPN that involved the TAP driver and I said no thanks. You were always trying to get me to install software to remote view and such and I always said no for security reasons, lol. Beyond that I knew nothing about your plans or any experiments. At the time all I recall was we were discussing options for 3rd party programs to replace Hamachi. Nothing about a server idea.

This is all news to me. I know I am senile but that senile? Maybe I completely misunderstood what you were trying to sell me, lol.

Maybe you worked on it after our initial discussion and you never showed me it? I seriously have no recollection of anything beyond us testing out 3rd party software to run in the background.
