Hi everybody, im new to this forum and i have decided to post this since i hope that it will help all of you who want to play multiplayer games on Emperor.
First of all you need a program that emulates LAN, i recommend Hamachi. Then, do exactly as Dynastia has written in his thread : "Go to the Emperor main-directory. (usually C:\Sierra\EmperorRotMK) Look for the file "WONLobby.cfg" and open it with NOTEPAD. Set the value for "CdKeyCheck" from true to false!"
However it still didnt work for me. Whenever i tried to play it online,(LAN or direct connect, with the help of Hamachi ofcourse) , people couldnt connect to my game and i couldnt connect to their. I only got error messages saying that we were not on the same subnet and that the host could not be reached. It seemed that Emperor checked something with the master servers and since they are down we got all these error messages. However i finally found a soulution. The trick is that you as a host MUST host the game while you are NOT connected to the internet. After you have host the game in direct connect, connect to the internet, start hamachi, create your own network in hamachi, ivite your multiplayer friends to your network, (they must have hamachi to), your friends dont need to start Emperor while they are not connected, all of your friends enter the Emperor lobby and press the direct connect button. (the same button as you have hosted the game from), your friends must then go to the options tab to check that their local ip adresses are the same as the adresses that Hamachi gives you( a hamachi ip always starts with a 5), if not press the "choose network adapter" and activate hamachi. Press logout and go all the way back to the main screen and then enter the lobby again. Now your local adress should be the same as your hamachi ip. Now finally your friends can press the "add" button when they are in the direct connect window. Then write your hosts hamachi ip in the adress and press add. Now you should see a game in the window and it should be no problem joining it.
Im sorry if it is hard to understand but post your questions and i will try to answer them. I played a game with 2 people yesterday by doing this. Hope it works so that we can enjoy Emperor multiplayer gameas again.
