    This is a modswapper for Emperor. It allows you to easily install and remove mods. Only 1 mod at the time. You can also decide to reset Emperor to the way it was, before mods were placed.
  2. Version 1.1


    For three years the Great Landsraad House Atreides was growing weary of the feuding on Arrakis. Finally after a succession of horrible defeats at the hands of their enemies the Atreides have sounded the retreat and are now departing the warring planet of Arrakis for their homes on Caladan. The Atreides diplomats called an emergency session of the Landsraad Council and began negotiating with their enemies, in an effort for a final peace for the honorable house. The Atreides Duke approved many concessions and compromises, and spent fully a third of his house's outside resources buying peace for his people. But the Duke has not abandoned his allies on Arrakis yet. The Fremen have gained much of their planet from the Atreides, for as the great house retreated their forces, the territories they formerly controlled were left to the desert warriors. The Fremen are finally given the chance to fight once again for their freedom and inadvertently for the freedom of the Empire. For should the Fremen be able to liberate their world, they would not see it taken again by any force. Thus the spice would be gone from the shelves of Imperial merchants and traders, the Empire would face the most horrible plague in it's history. The spice addiction would cause withdrawals within the bodies of it's sufferers of such potency that death would almost inevitably fall. Though the Fremen now control a huge section of Arrakis, they did not at first have the equipment and man power to hold and manage it. The Fremen begged the retreating House Atreides to make good on their mutual water debts and treaties, and requested equipment and soldiers. The Atreides saw an opportunity to strike their enemies one last time and they took it. The Atreides frigates departed Arrakis, but in their stead would remain a well equipped militia force. These forces represented the most advanced force of fighters in the universe, a force to rival the Emperor's Sardaukar and even the Fremen Fedaykin Warriors. With the might of the Atreides equipment combined with the battle hardened Fremen, surely only decisive victory would mark this war's end. -Timenn & Inoculator9

    Mass Effect 2

    Doesn't your job involve denying any bug exists in the first place? Haven't found any troublesome "bugs" so far. If you ask me I would blame the Xbox 360 console. It's always safe to blame that one. I like the game, it's engaging and the action has improved over Mass Effect 1. The thing I missed most, I think, are the strange planets you could visit. Not that I didn't feel sorry you didn't have to visit the same hideout layouts over and over again, but there is something very cool about driving around under a red giant. The new upgrade system worked for me. I never mind large inventories with lots of stuff to choose from, but in ME1 it started to become a bit generic after a while. After some time you would figure out which brands to stick with (as they were definitely superior over the lesser brands) and the usual loot you would pick up felt just like junk you needed to sell at some point. In ME2 almost every upgrade is worth something to you, and you have just enough credits in the end to buy them all. This means that you would want to spend time looking around at every mission for every small sum of credits too. As for the spoiler bits: [hide]Loved the suicide mission. This time the entire team is involved, setting the mission up in multiple sections allowed you to play around with different team members. In ME1 you picked your team at Ilos, with no way of knowing you would use them all the way to the end. I came to like all the characters I recruited, though Jacob and Jack held the least interest to me. I was impressed by the character development of Garrus and Tali. They both felt like the same characters, but you could definitely see they had advanced two years. The fact that Tali could be romanced was actually a surprise to me, so my next playthrough would hold something new and interesting for me. My first imported Shepard did stay loyal to Ash though (yay!) I think the only bit I was disappointed with was the role of the Council. I understand this game was not about galactic politics (like the first game), but the Council should have nagged my Shepard a bit more. Saving them (in my case) was the big endgame decision of ME1, and I was looking forward to some more arguments with them. For those who might be worried the Reapers are going to be here soon (final shot of the game), rest assured that you need to be quite far away away from the Milky Way to have a total overview of it, the Reapers aren't close by yet![/hide] Did anyone catch the space physics gag from one of the conversations with a store clerk? It reminded me very much of Arthur Clarke's Imperial Earth.
  5. Can agree with grypon about Death at a Funeral, wonderful film. The fact that is remade so soon into what seems like only a mere American version disturbs me somewhat. There are a couple of films I'd like to see, but the ones I'm most curious about are Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, and Harry Potter 7 (hoping for an equal improvement as with part 6 to part 5).

    Bah, again something typical for them people south of the rivers...
  7. Yes, you should stay away! Bloody tourists complaining about tourists, that's our job! I have to agree with namp about Rome, though I must add Paris to the list (beneath Rome though). And there's Troms
  8. Still, it's worth considering he hasn't left you in all these years.
  9. I'm still interested. I have been on vacation the past three weeks, though it seems nothing much happened around here anyway.
  10. Sorry, I feel the poll is a bit skewed. Members, who are allowed to vote, will see the message board more often than the front page, meaning that they are likely to see the new posts in FED2k News first. The anonymous visitor is more likely to see the site itself, and the news presented there, and they can't vote!
  11. I've asked around a bit, and it seems like Vista is rejected by both regular consumers as well as system operators. It's heavy, it has alot of useless "features" and it doesn't really add anything important that wasn't already in XP (or NT, for that matter).
  12. If I recall it correctly, an old Westwood employee commented on it here. He said that it was possible to use the units online, but they were only available for building to people who pre-ordered.
  13. That sort of settings is probably found in the Wiki/Site stylesheet as well. There is a way to make links a different color by using <span style="color: #000000;">link</span>. But this is a very bad idea, because it has to be done manually for every link, and leaves very redundant info.

    The Book Thread

    I'm re-reading The Wheel of Time series (by Robert Jordan) at the moment. Book Five (Fires of Heaven) to be precise. Series is very in-depth fantasy, that will end with the 12th book. Sadly the author has died before finishing the final novel. An author has been selected to finish the series, and I hope (and suspect) he will do a good job on it.
