Hello again. I asked a couple questions about 3 to 4 weeks ago,
and it seems no one else has been here since. I am guessing visits
to this newsgroup are very few and very far between. I see
questions about crashing that do not appear to have been answered
yet, and those were well before I posted here. Is this like Steel
Panthers? That was a DOS based game that was "supposed" to have
been remade for windows as well. Nothing but system crashes for
that, and this Empire version is doing the same for me. Are these
things released before they are debugged, or am I just computer
stupid? With instructions in technical terms I can not understand,
and any possible answers (from the newsgroup anyway) being too few
and far between, I can't see the use in continuing to come here
hoping someone has seen and answered a question. Maybe thier is
another (busier) site like this?

Are you using the C version of Empire for Windows? I haven't had any problems with it. The text/curses based version is still available as well.

The game isn't undergoing active development, but enthusiasts with some time on their hands might be willing to work on things a bit. The "time on their hands" bit doesn't include me, unfortunately. Sean

 Hello again. I asked a couple questions about 3 to 4 weeks ago,
 and it seems no one else has been here since. I am guessing visits
 to this newsgroup are very few and very far between. I see
 questions about crashing that do not appear to have been answered

Which questions about crashing? The only one I see at the moment is "Windows XP crashes", in which there was no reply to my reply.
 Is this like Steel Panthers?  That was a DOS based game that was
 "supposed" to have been remade for windows as well.  Nothing but
 system crashes for that, and this Empire version is doing the same
 for me.  Are these things released before they are debugged, or am
 I just computer stupid?

I don't know how well the various versions work, but my bug-fixed version ("Stewart's D version" in the navigation column) works well for me. It needs to be updated to current D though - I just need to send Walter an updated version to put on the site. What OS version are you using?
 With instructions in technical terms I can not understand,

Maybe if you can clarify which instructions you're talking about, then we can help you. Stewart.
