    I just recently installed EE:AOC onto my laptop and it works just fine. Except for whenever I try to connect to the internet. In the Multiplayer Tab, it says that it can't find the servers to connect to, and no matter what i've tried changing in the settings, it doesn't work. I've downloaded the most recent versions of DirectX and Visual C++ (as stated in another post) and downloaded the most recent patches for the game. Also, when I tried to look for updates for the game, this was what the dialog box said:

    Checking Version Information.
    Checking Internet Connection... Success
    Downloading the Message of the Day... Message of the Day not found.
    Looking up Update Servers... Error looking for Update Servers: WS_ServerReq_NoServersSpecified

    (WS_ServerReq_NoServersSpecified) also comes up whenever I try to direct connect.

    I have Windows Vista and a wireless router.

    The original was made in 2001 and the expansion, 2002, but I know the servers are still up because a friend of mine has the same game and she could get onto the servers just fine.

    Hey, I can help you with this.

    Since the main servers of Empire Earth are officially shut down by Activision© a few empire earth fans created the "new Empire Earth Lobby" which can be found on http://www.save-ee.com

    Where you can download the lobby.exe which is a client.
    As soon as you downloaded the lobby look for a moderator / admin / Trichome Lightnessking ( me ) to help you.

    PS: Spread the word about Empire Earth ! We currently have daily about 20-150 users online.

    (THIS LOBBY IS TOTALY FREE TO USE)
