- Oct 5, 2005Gunther,You should check out what has happened to Empire Deluxe while you have been gone. The "Internet Edition" is very popular amongst classic fans and the "Enhanced Edition" is popular amongst those that want to add to the game.Demos for both can be found at http://killerbeesoftware.com/kbsgames/demosGeneral info can be found at http://killerbeesoftware.com--Mark----- Original Message -----From: Andy YoungSent: Wednesday, October 05, 2005 4:29 PMSubject: Re: [empire-deluxe] IntroductionGunther, 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 LadderYour 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.--GeneralError

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.
