End of Support for GameRanger and RC Patch
GameRanger and RC Patch uses a non-updated version of Empire Earth and a connection system less worked in addition to offering less content.
It have not been updated for years now and can be considered as abandoned today.It is strongly recommended to use NeoEE to play online and unite the whole community.
Why use NeoEE instead of GameRanger?
GameRanger is still working right, so why use NeoEE ?
Because of these features and simplicity NeoEE is the most used multiplayer server of Empire Earth. Making this server the one used by all Empire Earth players is a major stake for the future of the community.
GameRanger is not integrated with Empire Earth which makes its lobby less accommodating. And GameRanger requires port forwarding, while NeoEE relies in part on technology that allows you to play directly.
NeoEE does not change the original game experience. Additional content to diversify the game mode is present but the gameplay has not been touched to preserve the best possible experience.
NeoEE uses Community Setup, it offers a much better compatibility for the game on all modern Windows systems. This is achieved through bug fixes and the use of compatibility flags and DirectX Wrapper tools.
NeoEE has a ranking system that allows you to challenge other players in competitive games! Play, persevere and try to be on the podium! This system will also allow you to play with other players of your level.
GameRanger does not use an updated version of Empire Earth which makes it incompatible with the vast majority of mods for the game, such as resolution modification, camera, HUD, ranking system etc… NeoEE support all that !
