Hi there,

I've bought EmperorRotMK a long time ago. Now I'de like to play it again on my new laptop. I copied the original files from the genuine DVD to a USB-stick.

Installing went okay, but when I tried running the games, I got the message: No cd inserted.

So I made an ISO of all the files and mounted a virtual DVD-drive. Now I got the message: Wrong cd inserted.

Can anyone help? I've got a legal dvd of the game, cannot get it running!

Emperor was only officially released on CD not DVD.

Use your legal CD in an internal CD drive or external CD drive of your laptop. There is 'cfg' configuration file in the Emperor Folder that needs to be changed pointing towards the CD drive; or uninstall/restart/reinstall if you cant figure it out.

Alternately, get the GOG digital version. (uninstall/restart/delete Emperor folder/install from the GOG download)

Thanks for helping out.

You're right. It's a CD, not a DVD.
I copied the files from the CD to a USB-stick. When that didn't work, I made a ISO, mounted it, installed it.

The mounted drive has letter F:

The config-file says:
[Config]
CDDrive=F
RAM=4008
CPU=1996
PlayIntroMovie=yes

If you still need help on this, it really needs to be moved to the Tech forum.

I would and I'm happy to open a new thread in the Tech department. Would it be of use? Is there anyone who would know to tackle this?

Have you tried gameburnworld? They give no-cd fixes for the game; last time I checked, they've had one for emperor. It worked for me on Age of Mythology and RTW, so it could probably be a solution for you on Emperor.

EDIT: If you're using windows 10, then it could possibly work, but I'm not at all sure about the others though.

I don't have a solution, and I hope you can get it to work. But if you can't get it to work, and you have the spare change, you can buy it on Good Old Games, gog.com.
