Play Empire Earth and Art of Conquest Online!

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

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 (VU Games website with original announcement has since been taken offline).

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.

Server down

Postby Jodocus on Thu Feb 20, 2020 11:03 am in Announcements

Hi everyone!

Yes, I am aware that the server is currently down, we're on it. Unfortunately, at this stage of time, I cannot tell what's happened and thus I don't know how long it takes. I will update this thread. Sorry for the inconvenience!

NeoEE goes Linux

Postby Jodocus on Sat Oct 26, 2019 6:53 pm in Announcements

Hi everyone!

There was no much progress in the NeoEE development from my side within the last years. However, there are some news, although maybe not too interesting ones for the average gamer. After quite some tedious work, I finally succeeded in porting the entire NeoEE server system to the Linux operating system. This comes with the following implications:

1. From the lobby perspective, nothing should change. The only noticable thing could be new bugs introduced during the development, i.e. crashes and alike. Although I've tried my best, some crashes during the test phase are unavoidable, but I am sure this will only be a problem for the first few weeks.

2. The costs of running the lobby will be reduced. Windows servers are usually more expensive than those running Linux, thus one could reduce the costs OR rent additional servers on different continents: this could reduce latency and improve the possible lag in full relay games (a feature which should allow everybody to host, albeit being still buggy and mostly unknown to the lobby community, as it has not been documented).

3. With the new code base up, I can start trying to fix some still existing lobby bugs. I noticed that some people sometimes have the problem of not being able to log in after finishing a game, this I should definitely fix in an upcomming release.

Stay tuned for more infos!

Merry Christmas

New tool: Saved game slot changer

Postby Jodocus on Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:03 am in Announcements

Hi!

NeoEE now has a tool that allows you to modify the slot settings of your saved games/multiplayer scenarios. You can use it to rename or "observe out" any open slot without using the infamous and tedious obs bug. Its major purpose is to make scen playing on NeoEE more comfortable s.t. you just wait for all players to join and then rename the slots according to your needs, rather than switching to Direct Connect and playing there.

You can find the tool at NeoEE.net/scen.
