How Can I mod Music?

Hi again, As I play empires I get Nostalgic for some of the Music that was in AJE. I was able to edit music in the old engine and this looks similar. Could someone please explain how to edit the Music file in Empires. I'd like to include an AJE file from the left of the image into the Empires music ...

Re: Would be nice if 'saves' in the save game folder matched 'in game save names'.

You can open the files in any text editor and the user-readable filename is shown at the top of the file. The files are numbered to allow the filenames to work appropriately in any language. There is a task on the list to append a semi-readable version of the user filename to the actual filename to...

RESOLVED:Would be nice if 'saves' in the save game folder matched 'in game save names'.

I like to name 'saved beta games' to match an issue but the way the game saves now confuses me.

AI Syracuse at war with Carthage breaks Alliance with Rome.

I'm playing as Rome (about turn 57) and Syracuse continues to ask for Trade deals: asking for alliance, then asking for Full Cooperation, then alliance. The Alliance dragged me into a war with Carthage. I sent Troops to Syracuse and the following turn Troops were thrown out because Syracuse wanted a...

Re: Comments on peace treaties and other deals

I agree with most of the observations above... would also like to see the ability to add clauses to sweeten the deal. As it is now "Peace Treaties may only include clauses which benefit the winning side, based on war supply". I might be willing to give up some metal or money to get them to cede the ...

Transaction tool-tip is misleading..

When conducting a transaction each tool tip claims that the proposing side is asking for item.
The underlying windows are operating correctly

Example below: Rome can offer Syracuse Metal with it's box highlighted but tool-tip claims they are asking for metal.

Beta: does removing an objective have a large negative penalty?

Playing beta as Rome-- Syracuse has taken Eryx from Carthage and has now asked me (Rome) to remove Eryx as an Objective. They've offered metal (8BP) for removing Eryx (-5BP). I'd love to accept since it's early and I don't see conquering it anytime soon.(I'd also like to see where positive Diplomacy...

Hi Again I have multiple agreements with a neighbor I no longer trust. I tried to end homeland movement with diplomacy but 'they refuse' and the supposedly friendly movement inside my territory continues... :( I'd like to be able to stop them without canceling everything or staring a war.

Are there Penalties for not providing emergency aid?

Hi again, I'm playing as Ptolemy and have captured several mines and Seleucid buildings near the Empire border. I'm reluctant to spend the money to repair these structures until the border stabilizes. Are there any penalties, other than their lack of production, for not fixing these buildings? Thank...

Re:Resolved: Could my GeForce GTX 650 run this..?

I purchased and installed it today; seems to be running ok. I have the graphics set on low and it still looks great. Did the first campaign mission and a skirmish.... so far so good.
Thanks for the help!

Re: Could my GeForce GTX 650 run this..?

Yes it most definitely can. I can run the game on low settings on a Lenova/IBM t510 Thinkpad which is a i5 mobile with intel HD video (8 Gb system ram, shared with video.) if that clunker can run it, you can, and I'll even bet you won't have to run minimum graphics settings! Enjoy the game, it's mi...

Re: Could my GeForce GTX 650 run this..?

Thank you very much Ghawkins... :-) I was afraid of that, no upgrade in the foreseeable future so it's back to less intense graphic games.

Hi again, I've been looking at BSG Deadlock for a while but have concerns about the minimum requirements. I checked a few web sites and it seems the minimum (1 gb GeForce 460) slightly out performs my (1 gb) GeForce GTX 650. :cry: Seems close though! (One site says it will work on low settings but a...

Hi In the attached image the 'field' NW of Auzia is outside of the city influence 'Cross' and seems to generate no food. I connected a road but it didn't seem to help.
