Y2K Was So Yesterday!
Y2K Was So Yesterday![mok]
Well, it looks like the latest patch built last October has claimed a victim - namely someone contacted me regarding the game not running on Windows 2000. The culprit was the VS 2012 aspect of the build. I was able to make a retro build of the game, but I suspect going forward I will not be supporting that platform.

Milestone coming soon
Milestone coming soon[mok]
Hard to believe the 10th anniversary of EDIE's release is coming up...the game of Empire itself is now working on its 5th decade. I cannot even begin to imagine the number of hours that have been spent playing it by everyone. What a great game.

I rarely plug other things, but here is something cool that is going on, and it will be interesting to watch it unfold. Though a very different genre from Empire Deluxe, in some way it is related...
Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games have produced many excellent games such as Dungeon Siege and some great RTS games in the past. Though RTS may not be your bag, you should follow his latest kickstarter. I, for one, am interested to see what comes of it.

Santa Sarge Is Coming To Town!
Santa Sarge Is Coming To Town![mok]
Santa Sarge has arrived, wishing everyone a happy holiday season. Unfortunately, Santa Sarge still cannot reveal what he is up to. His elves are running very late. Hopefully the New Year will bring new news.

And Here It Is
And Here It Is[mok]
The Patch for the Enhanced Edition of Empire Deluxe has finally arrived. There is always the potential for craziness, so send me a mail if something is amiss.
For Full Version Users (** Almost Everyone **)
For Remote Client Users (** If you have to ask, this is not you **)

Not Quite Yet For EDEE
Not Quite Yet For EDEE[mok]
My apologies that it has not made it out yet. I wanted to let everyone know I have not forgotten and it is drawing near. We are getting really close for a patch release, and about 20 folks are testing it. They have provided me with a great deal of wonderful feedback, and I want to make sure it is given the appropriate attention and I am trying hard to make sure new bugs have not been introduced to it. My goal is to be done before October. So stay tuned.
Nothing yet to report on the other thing I have been teasing about this year. But things must be closer. Stay tuned for info in that as well.

EDIE Patch Away!
EDIE Patch Away![mok]
I have released the EDIE patch, putting us at version 3.515 #011P. This patch makes minor adjustments from issues over the years. It has been quite a while since I have done a patch, so hopefully I got it right. If not, we will do another one ;>
UPDATE: Someone has already pointed out that I neglected to include d&quick.scn in the patch update. The patch file was updated, but if you have already pulled it before reading this message and want it, here is that scenario file.
EDEE will be next, but there is still one minor fix to be made there before release.

Patches Are Due
Patches Are Due[mok]
The patches have been tested, and are just about ready for release. The first one out will be EDIE, which should be real soon. I have to still make some minor adjustments to make to EDEE, and then that will follow. Last will be PGIE, as I want to address the issue that has arisen in the forums. So stay in tune for the next couple of weeks as these begin to unfold.
June 25, 2012
I was asked to post something and put up a teaser. Below is the screen shot of the new "Production Calculator" which will be included in the upcoming patch for EDEE.
We will see the patch towards the end of the July. It is currently in testing and I am having a great deal of fun playing it. EDIE is also recieving a small patch, as well as PGIE.
As for that other 'Empire-related' project I am working on, the momentum is coming along. I would love to tell but alas I am sworn to secrecy. I suspect the news about it will hit the wire around September/October, but I cannot say for sure. Things are looking good though, and I hope it is something Empire Deluxe fans world-wide will be able to enjoy!

Santa Sarge has left the building!
Santa Sarge has left the building![mok]
So Santa Sarge overstayed a bit, but he did leave a neat little gift. Also, some news that this year I hope we will hear something exciting about Empire Deluxe, possibly even The Perfect General. I don't want to say at the moment, for as you know if you have followed this site, there have been things I thought would happen in the past, and they seemed to fizzle. But I have a good feeling on this one, as I am more directly involved.
This will also mean at some point (hopefully in the first half of the year), there will be a patch for both versions of Empire, and possibly The Perfect General. So stay tuned and enjoy the gift!
