Play Empire Earth and Art of Conquest Online!

The NeoEE Lobby is now open and restores the original lobby.

Download the patch: HERE


On November 3, 2008 at approximately 19:00 UTC, the WON servers dedicated to the Empire Earth and Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest online gameplay system, were permanently shut down by Activision.

The Save-EE Lobby was developed by Nuckin Futs as an alternative lobby in the form of a Windows application. The lobby automatically lists Direct Connect (by IP) games hosted by players that are logged into the lobby.

After the release of client version 2.5.0, Nuckin Futs stopped working on the lobby, and development was continued by Ghost. The Save-EE Lobby had many of the familiar features from the original WON lobby and then some.

Since the introduction of the Save-EE Lobby, a new WON lobby server replacement project titled NeoEE was developed by Jodocus and RealForce. Save-EE has offered hosting to the NeoEE server and enabling connectivity via the normal EE multiplayer menu comes in the form of a patch.

We currently have many players using the system and we will welcome any players, old or new, into the community.

Please spread the word!

Lobby is now open source

Postby Ghost on Sun Jun 02, 2013 10:42 pm

So after thinking about it for some time and running it past the moderators awhile back (yes you guys, it took me this long to actually get around to it), I decided to open source the lobby (GitHub).

I initially was going to have you all vote whether or not to do it in a lobby poll, but this makes no sense. As a community, I think we should all have the same rights to improve the lobby we use. To leave all development to me, when I simply might not even be the best guy for the job, is unfair to everyone else. This is especially true now that I barely do updates anymore.

You will come to find that the code is just about as shitty as Nuckin Futs left it. I've done a little bit of clean up and added some hack jobs, but most of the changes were to improve the visuals in the client and add all the bells and whistles for features you've received since then (i.e. NOT to refactor everything). This program is very, very far from perfect. In fact, I'd say it's awful for the most part.

Why did it take so long? I simply thought the risk wasn't worth the reward. I think that's definitely changed a lot recently and I'm willing to place some trust in the community, both in old and new users.

How will everything work going forward? Should anyone choose to make changes, they can submit the changes to me through a GitHub pull request. I will review them, test them if necessary, and compile and release the changes.

Want to make changes? Well, I won't be explaining how to use GitHub, Git, Visual Studio, or even how to run debug versions of the lobby client/server. If you're qualified to make changes, this should all be very easy to learn without me holding your hand. Tip for debug: check for flags in the global classes, turn off update checker by commenting it out in FormLogin.vb, blank server database included in Misc folder. Oh, and I won't be providing support for any custom versions that start popping up. On the other hand I will attempt to support anything that is in my tree.

Where can you find the code? Here: https://github.com/save-ee/save-ee-lobby/

I hope that everyone can come together and better focus our efforts on what is better for the community while still keeping a competitive spirit. I'll do my best to answer any questions you have.

I'd also like to thank everyone that has donated to keep the server running. We're doing alright as of now and I'll continue to run the server as long as it makes sense to financially.
