Problem with Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest

Q: Problem with Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest

I cannot host a game if I am behind my router.

I have no firewall up.

I read on Sierra's website that the game does not work with NAT, but they were working on a solution.

Anyone know of a solution that allows you to host a game while using a router?

Preferred Solution: Problem with Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Problem with Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest

Quite easy. Google "port forwarding". You can forward a bunch of ports to a specific machine. U need to know your game's port range.

I have played these games before and they have worked fine. When I try to play them now though, they won't play. They will load the autorun screen and when I click on the 'Play' button the screen disappears the mouse changes to the icon where it appears like the cpu is busy and then it changes back to the pointer and nothing happens. Hitting alt+ctrl+del shows me that they are loaded into the background but they aren't playing. I have no idea what's going on. Can someone give me some insight on how to fix this problem?

*/edit/* I forgot to mention that I have already run the "Repair" option in the uninstall/install menu. It did not affect the outcome either... */edit/*
 

A:Empire Earth (original) / Empire Earth: Art of Conquest

try uninstalling the expansion and then empire earth, and make sure nothing is left in the directory you have the game installed under, easiest way to do this, is after you uninstall both games, just go to the directory and just delete it! and the reinstall the first game, run it see if it works, then follow with the expansion, see if it works, then continue to do the same with any updates you plan on using! hope this helps!

Really not much to go by, I'm afraid.

What are your specs? Are your drivers up to date? Were you able to run the game succesfully on that machine before? Did you try reinstalling and see if that works?

Don't have the time right now to go and google some stuff up, but I'll get to it later.

Hey there,

I've recently bought Empire Earth 2. I installed it and everything worked out fine. But when I try to play it, the game constantly minimizes itself for no obvious reason. When I try to maximize it, it minimizes again. For the brief moments I can see the game before it minimizes again, it seems to be working just fine. Any ideas?

I'm sure you're running on the latest game patch... I can't guarantee that this will work, but if you haven't yet, try right clicking the game shortcut, clicking Compatibility and selecting Windows 7 or XP SP3 mode.

A:HELP! Wireless LAN for Empire Earth

Do you have a wireless router that you're using? Please supply some details about the environment and the workstations involved.

If possible, I'd consider wired, it's easier to configure, and will result in better game performance.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)

I just upgraded my wife's computer to a mobo with a PCI-E port on which I put a Sapphire 850XT vid card. Now, however, when we try to play the original Empire Earth, it moves too quickly. The sound in the beginning plays like a record on the wrong speed. The game play is impossible to manage, as the view zips from one end of the screen to another.

I've heard of similar issues when trying to play DOS games on modern systems, and the fix is a DOS box, but in this situation, I don't know what to do.

The game is fully updated as is Direct X, the vid card drivers, etc. Would it help to revert to an older version of Direct X? Can that even be done?

Thanks in advance for any help.

This is a very odd problem and I can't find any instance on the Net of it. I have two systems. both running XP Pro.

Kingston 512MB PC2700

System 2:

Empire Earth runs fine on System 1, but on System 2 it will install okay, and when I try to launch it, the EE menu and music comes up. When I select "Play Empire Earth" the menu disappears but nothing starts. It just stays on the desktop. I have noticed by opening the Task Manager that "empire.exe" loads, then after about 4 or 5 seconds just disappears from the processes. Thinking it could be a CD drive problem, I have also tried mounting the game image using a virtual drive in Alcohol 120%. Same results.

I've tried different graphics driver versions (running same on both systems) and there's no change. DirectX 9 is also on both systems. I have run SpySweeper but it doesn't help. I have also installed all the XP updates.

When the game crashes, (with out warning every time) the game just freezes and a few audio clips repeat, then I get a really weird noise from my speakers for 1-2 seconds, and the screen goes black. Then I have to do a soft restart to be able to use my computer again.
