    Is there a way to make empire earth work on my laptop, which has a pretty small screen that i don't think can hold the resolution required. The thing is that the game isn't formatted to my screen and i can't see parts of the screens in the game. I can't even play it because the start battle button is too far down and i can't see it. other than that, the game loads and works, i just can't play it, which is pointless to have it on there.

    What res do you have your desktop at? Try putting it to the same res your game runs at.

    my resolution is 1024X768 and i would change the game resolution settings, but i cant see the whole options menu, mainly the part where that option is located, so i can't change it to match. i've tried switching my pc's resolution to lot's of different ones and nothing works. is there a patch or something i can download, or any other ideas?

    thanks

    If your desktop is 1024 x 768, it should work, because EE will run at lower res than that.
