  1. I just wanted to give everyone a update. I have a server ready, but unfortunately RA1024 has gone missing. I have tried to email and to contact him by phone with no success. So until he turns up and I can get the binaries from him the server is at a standstill.
  2. Did you use the Emperor Install Fix? I am running Win 7 64 bit and had no problems with the install. I ALWAYS use the install fix when installing Emperor and I never have problems. Just follow the directions EXACTLY. When it says copy files to the desktop, do it. After the install you just delete the left over files. Also don't forget the 1.09 patch after installing. Let us know if that solves your problem.
  3. Hey Gob, sorry for posting off topic but I need to ask you about something and PM'ing you didn't work. In the past few days you have sent me over 50 PM's asking me to either approve or disapprove some files? I have no idea what to do. They are also showing up in my email inbox. Just PM me what to do and then delete this post. Thanks, Voodoo Daddy
  4. Interesting, My problem has been finding a box. I threw out a bunch of old PC's a little over a year ago, and now it turns out I could of used one of them. RA said he wrote his server software on Red Hat. So the server would need to run Red Hat 7, 8, or 9 with mysql and php. Which i think are part of the distro. You would need to set up a password during the install, then RA would log on and compile his software.
  5. Please stay on topic. If you want to talk about players, fine. Start a new thread. (Posts about Hamachi are Ok, since until I get a proper server up and running, Hamachi is more or less the De facto server)
  6. OK I finally have some news. I have re-established contact with RA-1024. I spoke with him this past week. Here is what is going to happen. 1- I need to obtain a suitable box (pc) this will not be hard. My nephew has one I just need free time to go get it. 2- I need to Wipe it and then get it set up with certain server software that Ra has outlined for me. 3 - Then RA will upload and compile his Emperor server software to the new box. From that point forward I will be Managing our server. 4- I will test it - then make it available to the Community. One potential problem is that my ISP (Comcast) does not normally issue static IP's. (Which are necessary for this to work) I am also working on a solution to this. Also, I have a Job and a family to support, so this is being done in my spare time. However I am hopeful that I can get this done in about a Month. I would also like to publicly thank RA for taking time from his busy schedule do do this for us, and for all he has done for us in the past.
  7. Westwood used an old version of Safedisk, if memory serves. I would recommend "Any DVD" by Slysoft. It will remove the safedisk on the fly. I have used it for years and it has NEVER failed me. I think it is still a free app.
  8. Good news! I was just contacted by Ra1024. Nunu, if you can get a box ready he will upload the binaries and set up the server! Let me know how you make out so I can update the getting online guide to reflect the new server address etc.
  9. Hey Guys, I just emailed Ra about the Binaries. As soon as he responds I will let you know what he says. Nunu, If he sends me the Binaries I will email them to you straight away.
  10. Yes I am. After the Holidays I will try to contact RA again.
  11. The problem is not hardware, but thanks for the offer. I am still waiting for RA to send me the Binaries.
  12. The XWIS servers always were the "Official" servers for Emperor and the older Red Alert games. First due to EA's support, then by EA giving them the original Westwood server IP's. The reason we all played on RA's server was because the majority of the people who post on this site (read that as the entire Emperor community) can not play on XWIS. This is due to the fact that the Strike Team servers check serial numbers against the old Westwood master list. The vast majority of the Emperor players download the game from one of the many torrents out there and use Keygen serial numbers. RA's server did not check serial numbers.
  13. I was not aware that RA's server supported Dune2000.
  14. The web address would be new. I would need a computer to run the server on. Between Whistler and myself we can come up with the necessary hardware.
  15. Well, I finally have some good news! I have been in touch with RA and he offered to send me the server code. Once he does this I will have to get a box to run the server, and the software to run RA's binaries. The big question is, are there enough people still playing to make this effort worth my while? If you are still playing post below so I can get an idea of how many people still play. If there are enough players I will try to gather the hardware and software needed to to get our server back up. I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG THIS WILL TAKE! In the meantime I would suggest using Hamachi.
