  1. 1) Officially, you can get the game by ordering it via Amazon or ebay, where you supposedly get a functioning installer CD. Depending on the OS, it may or may not work, if I understood it correctly. (chk https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Emperor:_Battle_for_Dune#Availability) Of course, whether or not you trust online-shopping where you can't see whether or not you're being scammed for yourself when it comes to PC hardware and/or software is your thing. I don't. Regardless, I heard the "safest" option, is... well... Let's just say it isn't approved of by most people, myself included. Although, to be fair: no-one will go after you as they can't. I heard the Dune games are in "licensing hell", meaning anyone can pirate the game and no-one can legally do anything about it. Desperate times call for desperate measures, I suppose. I'd buy the game, but I don't know anyone reliable enough to buy from. It's a trust thing, really. 2) Yes, the game can and will run on Lose10. Tho, chk https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/27468-problem-with-resolution/ for any potential problems regarding resolution, and https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Emperor:_Battle_for_Dune#Lag_fix_in_Windows_8.2F10 for performance problems on 10. 3) Yeah, Emperor was among WW's finest RTSs. The story could've used a lot more work, tho, with all that territory mechanic... I mean, the missions felt real (capture old outpost, rescue pilot, bring old refinery back online), but other than offering some variety to the missions, they had no impact on the campaign what-so-ever. A shame, really. E:BfD should've been released about a year after YR, so it wouldn't have been so over-shadowed.

  3. Apparently, every version on this site is a beta that can't create new files for some reason. Does anyone have a version that can open, create and insert files? Thanks.
  4. Considering it was the RTS-precursor and had "one-unit" limit and not that many (or any, AFAIK) keyboard commands... This shouldn't come off as a surprise, but it still does.
  5. I was being sarcastic. Why, EA? Why..? 😭
  6. Trust you? Who are you? A Rivals player? And I did say smartphone life is a shame. A complete and absolute shame. Yeah, we don't want Dune for phone. We want Dune and C&C for PC and only PC. One last thing: Rivals? A) not a C&C game. B) I never heard of Rivals. Is it good?
  7. I'm actually surprised they risk making a tabletop game instead of a video game in the age where smartphones have become the center of today's life (which is shameful in and of itself). They might've been better off remaking the three Dune RTS games we discuss here
  8. ^^This might still be relevant should Emperor fail to run. Tell me how things go.
  9. Double posting. I remember recently trying to run GTA SA and it didn't run at all. Turns out it was something else that, more or less, had nothing to do with the game (it was the save file, of all things). Your case might be similar in that it's not the game itself. It may be all maps are corrupt, or the settings (which you'll find in the registry, so maybe you need to run Emperor as admin?). https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Emperor:_Battle_for_Dune
  10. I think there was something about the Emperor installers not working when Win10 is involved... http://dune2k.com/Duniverse/Games/Emperor/Downloads/Patches Look for the install fix. Oh wait, Emperor installs, but won't run? ...try the link above, maybe something went wrong with the installation, hence why it doesn't work?
  11. Long story short: I want to add "Dune" into my C&C Supremacy mod, noth asset-wise and story-wise. But I can't really do that with what VXLs and SHPs are around. There are literally none, save for that Aerial Defense Platform I found on http://www.yrargentina.com/old/index.php Does anyone know if a conversion is possible? Which programs do I need? Does anyone want to get in the 'Special Thanks' section of the credits?
  12. (Late reply, I know.) Under [General], look for these: CashDeliveryWhenNoSpiceAmountMax CashDeliveryWhenNoSpiceAmountMin CashDeliveryWhenNoSpiceFrequencyMax CashDeliveryWhenNoSpiceFrequencyMin
  13. Just in case windowed mode doesn't fix it or people don't want the window: Get the registry open (several ways. Manual search or Win+R regedit, for instance), and navigate here: Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Westwood\Emperor\Options\Graphics Or you could hit Ctrl+F and search for the Emperor 'folder' in the registry. ScreenWidth and ScreenHeight are what you need. https://mega.nz/#!mKgnHbDT!R6MJPaUo7Xs8HwJfl2PNzTEkcwo5Z9s-iD4uZVld3lw
