    I have a problem with a game called empire earth. it doesn't seem to run smoothly. For eg when a plane is flying it does not fly accross the screen smoothly it jumps. Sometimes it jumps more than half the screen.

    I have ME, 733, 128, 20gigs, Sound blaster live

    Without more information its a little hard to say for certain but it sounds like a video problem to me. What video card, video drivers and DirectX do you have? Empire Earth is likely to require a fairly high end video card and up to date drivers and DirectX.

    I Think I've got direct x 8.0 I also have a DVD which plays DVD's o.k. Games such as, age of empires, driver, gta2, strong hold, cleopatra, ceasrer III, etc all play fine but Age of Empires does not.
    Hope that Helps.

    check what video card and drivers you. You can do either through system devices(start, settings control panel, system, device manager, display adapters) or right click on desktop, properties, settings, advanced, adapters. Once you determine the type of video card (nvidia, ati or something else) check if it is supported by the game (usually included in minimum and recommended requirements) Then check the video driver (highlight display adapter in device manager, properties, driver, driver file details) this will tell you what version you are running. Look on computer manufacturers site for updated driver. If not check for a patch for the game (avault.com is a good game site). Hope something works, its a cool game.

    A patch for Empire Earth v 1.0.4.0 is available and one of the issues it fixes is: Improved granularity of the mouse - increased the top speed while also better handling accuracy issues on fickle mice. here's the url empireearth.sierra.com/support
