ATTENTION! UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE YOU CAN PLAY ON XWIS (IF YOU ARE USING A LEGITIMATE SERIAL) OR ON HAMACHI.

RA'S SERVER IS FINISHED, .

HERE ARE SOME OF THE HAMACHI NETWORKS THAT ARE BEING USED FOR EMPEROR. If there are more just post them in a thread and I will add them here

Server: Newlords

Password: dune

Server: ebfd2001+

Server: ebfd2001++

No Password 

IMPORTANT!! - Before you do the following you should know this!

EMPEROR is no longer supported by EA. It is kept alive by the members here and all the people who still play.

YOU WILL NOT FIND THE SERVER FULL 24/7!

Most games are played in the evenings E.S.T. USA. The Best way to play is to set up a game using X-FIRE or MSN

Emperor is really more like getting together with freinds. We all know each other here.

NEWBIES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!! We are always willing to help you get started or get online.

WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE BEST IN RTS! Because in our opinion Emperor is it.

To install and play emperor on XWIS Server

1 Install the game

The best place to get Emperor is eBay, at the moment.

You must install the Shared Internet Components (SIC) when installing the game. Make sure you tick the check-box for it, when installing.

If you did not install SIC, run the installation program again. When you are given a choice of what to install, untick all the tick boxes (including Emperor, you already have that) except Shared Internet Components and continue the installation. This will add the SIC and you will not have to reinstall Emperor.


2 Start Emperor: Battle for Dune

Run the game. You can hit the escape key to skip the movies if you want.

At the Main Menu, click on Options and then Graphics.

The slider bar Graphics Quality should be set to the left most it can be, i.e. Low.

This is to try to ensure your game does not lag online (You may still lag, but at least you would have done what you can). Next, go to Options, Game, then set your game speed to 8. If you are on a older/slower computer set ALL graphics sliders to their lowest setting.


3 Download Patch

To manually download the patch, go here and select the correct version for your language. Aim for the 1.09 patch ;). You must download the patch to play online.


4 Getting onto the Server

Method A

Download the XWISC tool from www.xwis.net. This tool lets you set your game to connect to the server.

NOTE: If you are running Vista you must change the permissions on the Hosts file in order for the XWIS tool to work. You MUST be in an administrator acct. to do this!

Go to C/windows/system32/drivers/etc

Right click on the Hosts file-select properties.

Select the Security Tab.

Under group or user names select(highlight) users, click on the Edit button.

Under the allow column select all except the last one(special permissions)

Click apply and then OK until your out.

Run the tool. Those numbers are the IP Address
