Additional Comments

When the game looks for the CD just remove all CDROM drives from winecfg and start the game again. When it does not find the CD again wine will create a new CDROM drive letter. This is the one which will work. But you may have to change the path in resource.cfg (in the game directory).

HowTo / Notes


How to run the game
You need to run the game with the -C command line switch, like 'wine emperor.exe -C'.

Problems installing from CD?
Ok. This is howto for people who can't install Emperor directly form CD.

1) First of all visit website and download Install patch for Emperor.

2) Coppy your Setup folder from the cd. Replace the Setup.exe with exe from the patch.

3) Run Setup.exe through terminal. It should be displaying: enter the cd to the drive.

4) Don't close message from your install. Run another terminal and enter wincfg. When you are in it, click on "Drives" button and create drive with D letter, set it as CD-ROM. Set path to this drive as /media/Emperor1/ (or whatever path you have to your CD-ROM). And apply changes. Don't close winecfg!

5) Switch to the installation and click ok on the "Insert cd" message. It should disappear and installation should began.

6) When you are going to play, enter the Emperor's folder and replace Emperor.exe with the same exe from patch.

Have fun ;]
