Emperor: Battle for Dune Patch Information
September 6, 2001
Dear Emperor: Battle for Dune Player,
The latest patch for Emperor: Battle for Dune is primarily to add support for the BETA release of our Map Editor. The BETA Map Editor is a developmental tool, and will be downloadable as an ‘AS-IS’ utility. It does NOT have the polish of a retail-release, and can be difficult to learn. However, this patch will allow you to use the maps created by the fans with this tool.
If you join a game that has selected a map, which you do not have on your local harddrive (i.e. you will need to download user-created maps separately), a warning message is displayed upon entering that game’s setup screen.
NOTE: User-created maps are created completely independent from Westwood Studios and Electronic Arts Inc. We have no controls over the content that a user puts into their maps. Please be cautious and review any download from any site to verify its content and that you deem it acceptable. Westwood Studios & Electronic Arts are not responsible for objectionable content.
Additionally, a few minor enhancements were made available in this release as well.
Thanks for your continued support and enjoy the new changes!
--Westwood & the Emperor: Battle for Dune Team.
Changes in V. 1.09
- Support for user-made maps. They will appear in your map-selection dialogue box for Skirmish Games & Multiplayer Games. Upon joining a lobby or after map selection changes, users that are missing that map, or have a different version will be given a warning, and will not receive the ‘Accept’ button.
- Westwood Online games that are full of players, but have not yet clicked ‘Accept’ and/or ‘Play’, will now appear in the Custom lobby in a gray color.
