      Gunther, my old enemy, welcome back.  I think we played in a 3 on 3 game sometime in the last century.  This group is a good place to start.  You can look for opponents in Givoni's ED Ladder
      Your proposed set up is odd, I think that adding computer players introduces a random factor that can easily tilt the game heavily in favour of the player who is farthest away from the AI, but I'll try anything once.

      Greetings, Group!

      I'm an old-time Empire player (from before there was such a thing as
      Windows), but am relatively new to playing it online. I just got back
      into the game after a long sebbatical.

      I could not get the CD version to run under Windows 2000 Pro (I kept
      getting a "Wrong Windows Versin" error), but the freebie version
      available on the various sites works fine (go figure). Incidentally I
      still can not get the setup for the scenario disk to run. Does anyone
      know where I can simply snag the scenarios as a ZIP or RAR archive?
      I'd love to get a game going in the Russian Revolution map.

      Anyway, what is the most common/popular method? My schedule seems to
      preculude "live" play, so I'm primarily interested in getting a PBEM
      going, ideally with at least 3 people.

      Proposed scenario:

      Random map, 90 x 140, no wrapping

      All human players at advantage 2 for combat & productivity
      Computer players:
      1 at Combat Adv 3, Prod Adv 1
      1 at Combat Adv 1, Prod Adv 3

      Chow for now,
