If you have encountered a bug in Empires, please post it in this thread. This way, the SSSI guys won't have to sift through loads of posts for things in the game that they need to address in the patch

Fire away!

This is a bug post patch.

I was playing vs the computer to check the patch out and after about 30 minutes play. I am unable to build anything. I have well over 2000 plus on all the resources, but I attempt to build something and the game tells me I do not have enough resources.

Up to this point I have not had any promblems with the game till the patch came out.

I've seen some possible mention of this problem. After installing patch, evertime I goto the rooms channel; "action", it freezes up every damn time. It sometimes has a little trouble when the players in a particular room is 50 or so. but action has 200-400 players, and I can get into every other lobby except action...Has anyone had this problem before?

I know I mentioned this problem elsewhere in General Issues, but it looks like it should have gone here, so I repeat:

I've got a Vaio PCG-GRX570 notebook with all factory specs.

I kept getting that problem where you can't purchase anything and then the game goes out of sync. It has never happened to me while in a game for a while, always at the outset. Also, this is post-patch only. Now, I noticed that it only did this to me when I had Yahoo! Messenger, the latest one, whatever it's number is, running. Not always, but probably 50% of the time. Since, I've made sure not to have Yahoo! running and I haven't had a problem.

I also run MSN Messenger with no problems. So, I seem to have circumlocuted my problem, but I figure someone might like to know about this problem, might help someone else out there.

i have found that the research "lorraine iron" for france no longer has an effect since the patch, costs over 500 gold and does not decrease the cost of any units now, doesnt list the costs differently and doesnt take less then the listed amount when purchasing units. I could be mising something but to me it has 0 effect. also patch changed my internet explorer icon to a EEAOW icon, doesnt seem to hurt anything but is weird

I also have another problem with the new patch when I try making flamethrower or flame unitts its blows up. It is very wierd and I dont understand it, could it be that since I put in sounds with flame thrower names it is screwing up the game? well this very odd and needs fixing.

It doesn't need fixing if you willfully altered your files and messed up the game.
Well I was talking to Kman, and he was like "what do you do?" and I was like "Oh, I act, go to school, dance, sing, play soccer and stuff. What do you do?" and he was like "AntiAmi." so I figured hey, it's an occupation. - Ultima_Knight

D-Day by Mario causes Empires to exit to desktop when loading on my PC. Probably a driver issue, since others have played it.

My game keeps minimizing. I was playing it the other day but I had to reformat my computer now when I play the game it minimizes all the damn time!!! Well I think it has something to do when I installed. I put disc 1 in it went to 35% asked for disc 2 I put that in and then It did that file thing then when it was done it said put disc 1 in I did then When I put it in it asked me to register, but it never went to 100% is that normal?

Excuse me, but please, next time post a topic, instead of posting into Bug List. That's not a bug.

I do not know, but I think its trying to open it (the License). Ask Activision, they'll help you... a lot!

Ahem, this is a bug list. Not a problem list, if you know what I mean, technically.

I'm currently in a hurry so if someone already posted this i'm sorry. I have a problem.
When i start empires everything is fine. it loads up the main menu fine. but when my mouse is idle on any section (such as single player) it scrambles and makes the letters small. It does this too on the campaign descriptions on several lines and on the scenario editor(the words are blank there) PLEASE HELP!

Hello! This is a bug list! Not a problems list, if you know what I mean.

Chaoswizkid, Your graphic-card is not up to date! Please update your graphic-card. This is one of the most common problems I have seen.

It's probably not a bug, but it should be a feature.

The game doesn't support the 1280x1024 resolution. Almost all TFT-screens of 17" or 19" use this resoluiton (I got a 17" TFT), but there's just no support. When I set this resolution in the registry myself, things are a little out of place in de gui. Seems like Empires was built around an 4:3 resolution. I'd like somekind of support for this reso (even black border on the top and the bottom would be OK (to maintain 4:3 aspect ratio) as long as it is added in a patch).

Sometimes, and this happens more times than not, when I choose to play a random map in single player mode, I start out with plenty of resources, but all of the commands are "grayed" out. Meaning that I cannot create new workers, or have workers build things, etc. Essentially the game is unplayable. I'm pretty sure I've applied the latest patch. Has anyone experienced this problem?

You guys are the lucky ones. I purchased the game, installed it and applied the patch and i dont get past the activision intro before the game crashs to my desktop an then requiring a reboot. I am running an 2500+XP, 1Gb PC3200 Corsair RAM, ATI Radeon 9600 Pro, Zalman 5.1 Soundcard. Before you suggest checking drivers, that has already been done and applied. Also running windows XP with service pack 2 and direct x 9.0c. Apart from reinstalling my windows which i am not willing to do since Doom 3, CnC Zero Hour, Battlefield Vietnam work without a problem at all. Is it just me or does it seem alot of games these days come out with a crap load of bugs indicating poor beta testing by the developers ?.
