Skip intro videos[edit]

Delete/rename video files[citation needed]

Delete or rename the file <path-to-game>DATAMOVIESLEGALS.BIK

Lag fix in Windows 8/10[edit]

Follow the procedure[citation needed]

The game lags terribly in modern operating systems, such as Windows 8 and 10. In order to fix this, you have to use 'dgVoodoo 2' by Dege. Follow the instructions in this video (Dark Ruler fix). The game will now run at 60 FPS in Windows 8 and 10. (Note: the program may be detected as malware; the developer of the program (Dege) asserts that it's merely a false positive).

  1. Download dgVoodoo2 and unpack it.
  2. Locate the file 'dgVoodooSetup.exe' inside the MS folder.
  3. Copy and paste the files in the base game directory. By default it's 'C:/Westwood/Emperor'.
  4. Run 'dgVoodooSetup.exe' in the game base folder.
  5. An application will open: select your appropriate graphics card from the drop down menu in 'Adapters to use/enable'; in 'Apperance,' choose 'Centered'. Now click on the 'DirectX' tab above. New options will appear: input '512 MB' in the 'VRAM' menu. Deselect 'dgVoodoo watermark'. Click on the 'apply' button, then press 'OK.'
  6. Run the game. Notice the main menu will still lag, but the game itself will run fine.

Playing without the CD[edit]

Follow the procedure[citation needed]
  1. Install the game.
  2. Install Patch 1.09.
  3. Download the official Install Fix.
  4. Extract the file EMPEROR.EXE from the Install Fix archive and copy it to <path-to-game>, overwriting the old file.
  5. Copy the contents of the game disks 2, 3, and 4 into separate folders in the games directory, e.g. CD2, CD3, and CD4.
  6. Edit the file <path-to-game>resource.cfg. Look for the following section, where the letter X: represents the drive you installed the game from:

8. Replace the letter X: with the respective folders for each disk, e.g.Make sue you do the same for the Movies files as well.

9. Save the file and run the game.
