Windows XP and NeoEE patch..
I hope all are well in this curious and troubling time.
Being all locked down as I am I decided to dig out Empire Earth, having put it away nearly a decade ago when kids arrived. lol.
I was able to find an old PC laptop in the loft...
I have reinstalled EE no problem and I can play against the computer. I installed the patch for multiplayer. It works for me to get into the lobby, but even playing single player crashes EE with patch.
I have tried all the settings I have seen, but no luck.
Apologies if I've missed a post on this subject, but I would like help to get multiplayer/patch working with Windows XP, please.
The EE game does not offer Windows 7 or 10 as an option on Windows XP
It offers :
Windows NT 4.0
There is also no option to start as admin, but the user profile I am using on the ancient laptop is the admin.
Video card is whatever was default for a Sony VAIO back in the early 2000's
The game display gives the options of :
Primary Display Driver
Direct 3D Hardware TL
Any help would be appreciated. I find I still enjoy games against the cheating computer, lol, but I'd much rather play some multiplayer, and to see some old friends too
