The 2.0 version is NOT Empire Earth II

Running the game:

-Use the native msvcrt.dll

-disable DirectMusic

do this by setting the following Registry key to "0":

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SSSI\Empire Earth\Music Enabled



Empire Earth will freeze if you end the game by clicking on the "Quit Game" button in the menu.

Empire Earth 1.0 (happens in 0.9.50)


Empire Earth's Mouse will hang if you tab out of the game(and back in).

Empire Earth 1.0 (happens in 0.9.50)


To allow EE to find the CD you should open winecfg and add a drive mapping, setting it to CDROM.

Empire Earth 1 success
by Kevin DeFord on Saturday November 2nd 2013, 17:47
I was able to get Empire Earth Gold Edition to work finally for single player games. The biggest issue is don't install any patches and don't install Art of Conquest.

I used:

Wine 1.6

Then just did a normal install. I have not gotten it to work properly outside of an emulation mode - seems to have trouble with the screen resolution when run outside emulation. Mouse speed works fine in this mode - game is definitely playable.

If the patch 1.00 - 1.04 patch is installed, the mouse stops working. If the expansion is installed, Empire Earth still works fine, but the expansion does not work.

Anyone had any success getting the expansion to work?

Mouse Fix
by Iago Caran on Saturday November 17th 2012, 21:00
I actually got the mouse working by only using native dinput.dll, I didn't have time to test a lot, but it appears to be working.
If this helped please comment, if not, at least I tried.

Who can I fix the mouse problem?
by Tomas Gustavsson on Sunday May 3rd 2009, 4:13
I see that some of you guys have been able to play through Empire Earth and I wonder how, I as many other have had the problem that the mouse is too low which makes it more or less unplayable.

How did you fix the mouse problem?
