While much work has been done to make Empires as functional as it is (without an SDK), we need to remind the users who download it on the 10th that it is being released as an OPEN BETA TEST. If you are impatient with on going work, then you might want to wait for Empires to go through a few more iterations. By downloading version 0.1 you are becoming a Beta Tester with all the pain and joy that comes with that.
There are many issues to be dealt with, among them: lag in commander interface skins and sounds more maps instability that are difficult to resolve as they seem to be BF1942 engine related non dedicated servers being more stable than dedicated player models balance issues various bugs
Please keep an open mind on playing Empires v 0.1, and realize we're starting a very long, and hopefully, exciting road to making a great game. We are also hopeful that BF 1942 1.6 will help us debug and find the source for the instability and lag issues.
But we guarantee that at the very least you can play by yourself on a nondedicated server to get a glimpse of the game without crashing
NOTE: there have been reports that the current build of Empires is running not crashing on NON-DEDICATED servers with LESS than 10-12 people. We recommend that those wishing to host games do so as non-dedicated, and try to keep the player count low until we can find and fix this issue. We apologise for any inconvience to those server ops out there wishing to host Empires Beta, and will work to resolve this issue as soon as possible.
