Quick Start Guide


Step 1: Launch the Client
Before you do anything else, you will need to launch the Evolve client. Once you log in to your Evolve account, you will see a large window open up with a variety of featured Twitch Channels.




Step 2: Click the [Start Casting] Button
In the upper right of this featured Channels window, you will notice a red [Start Casting] button. Click it, and you will be prompted to link your Twitch account.




Step 3: Link Your Twitch Account
A Twitch window will appear asking you to log in to your Twitch account and authorize Evolve to access various pieces of information on your behalf. Once you have successfully linked your account, you should see a small Broadcasting toolbar appear on your screen. This toolbar will display your viewer count, give you easy access to various audio and video settings, and let you configure your Twitch Channel’s title.



Step 4: Launch a Game
Now that you have started your first Broadcast, you will want to launch a game. You do not need to do anything special--just launch your game how you normally launch it when you want to play. Evolve will automatically detect your game, begin capturing the video output from the game, and tag your Twitch Channel with the game name.



Step 5: There Is No Step 5
That is it! You can experiment with various Broadcasting options to see what works best for you. Use the settings gear on the Broadcasting toolbar to access these options and to bring up the channel viewer for easy access to Twitch chat and a Broadcast preview.
