Some of us have been getting this error. Apparently others have not. But, I think I've tracked it down to a certain set of changes. I've been running some tests and it seems patch 1.2 is the last proper working patch currently available. I made several copies of the game in my drive and installed the patches one by one till i got an error. 1.3 was the first. the changes made after 1.2 are listed as follows in the readme files for the rest of the patches.

* Corrected several text issues including the removal of references to the Venator and missing text. * Corrected an issue that allowed Empire Heroes to be placed on the Death Star. * Corrected an issue that allowed multiple turrets to be built on the same build pad. * Corrected an issue that caused AT-AT’s to become stuck when deploying troops over build pads. * Corrected an issue where AT-AT’s would stop moving when tow cabled by Rebel Speeders allowing players to stop the unit from suffering a successful tow cable attack. * Corrected an issue in which the Death Star could be sold.

Now, I believe somewhere in there may be the issue everyone's been looking for. So I ask that whoever has the time, energy, and ability to find said issue, please do so. it may require you do a fresh disc install and download current patches for you to get the error. and for reference I'm running an hp pavilion laptop, 4 gig ram, 2.0ghz amd dual core, geforce 7150m graphics with vista home edition. anyone with any information or that can help please respond. you are our only hope. :saber:

as for those of us who don't want to wait for someone to repair a patch...

i figured out how to make it work

first, have a fresh install of EAW available.

then update ONLY to the 1.2 patch available on this website.

third, extract files to game data file.

4th, put files into correct folders in data folder. this involves replacing (but don't forget to backup) the text files...the rest is just inserting where needed!!

this should clear up the empire surrounded people, AND the exception error people!!!

edit: sorry bout dbl pst, it was a couple hours later i figured it out...

Nothing to feel sorry for dude, i just put the 1.2 patchfile into my EAW gamedata file and clicked on the patchfile. It has an install so it installed and that is just what i needed, Thanks. O and just to let you know, my computer is a DELL with an AMD phenom II processor at 64 bit and windows 7 home premium with 6 Gb of RAM and a 24 inch widescreen monitor. My videocard is a Radeon allthough i don't know wich one cause i am doing this from memory.
