Editing rules.txt

Recommended Posts

This is a question I have and I hope I am right... Is it wrong or illegal to edit the rules.txt and use it online? Like all the mods out there are edited stuff, including the rules.txt, right? So there is no problem right? We can even download mods and a rules.txt to edit in here so there is no point in being wrong...

Im making this question cause someone asked me this.

Illegal ?  ;D

No one officially cares about the game. They wont hunt you down if you change one file.

Most changes will not work online though. As in with other players who do not have the same changes. Must be consistant.

Ah, so it is due to the lack of official support for the game that there isn't any Emperor equivalent of Punkbuster making sure we aren't hacking the game?

Goody.

Well, I dont see things that way.  :) Like in many other games you can make changes cause you bought the game and these changes are not illegal. You are not making money with the mods... you re just creating other type of fun that already is available in the game. So I guess its no big deal. I remember playing Medal of Honor and there were MANY thousands of players online and maybe hundreds of mods... and there was never a problem or advise from the company. Now Emperor never had thousands of players online... Even if there was a problem, where is Westwood and any support for the game!?  :D

There is no problem. Just check the download section and you will see how many mods this game has... lol

Perhaps the issue only lies in ranked servers then. Only ranked servers will make sure you don't do anything to any file, lest you cheat.

Some servers detect changes in files (cheats)and these are blocked so they cant enter server; but the servers never block users that use mods cause some servers are created to different types of games. In the Emperor case you can always use mod because you dont have either ranked servers and even if you did the mods are not cheats and besides that, as I said before and Erjin as well

"Most changes will not work online though. As in with other players who do not have the same changes. Must be consistant."

Everyone who is playing with you must have the same mod, if not the game crashes.  :)

I believe the game won't crash if two people have different rules.txt files. The game will only throw a Out of Synch error, and the game is over (you will return to the main menu)

If we have mentioned crashing then that would be a mistake, it does only go Out Of Sync (oos) but its still crap :P.
