I hope so, I'm in the same situation. Also IIRC last Christmas this was on sale for £3.50 or so, but I was very much AFK so couldn't buy. Hoping to see a similar daily or flash before the end!!

Did you try the Ram Patch?

Not nessecarily accurate, in fact I'm certain with a little effort you could get it to work (as long as you don't have problems installing). You will need Ram patch!

Source: I have done so.

Yes works just fine with windows 8 for me. If problems occur look for the RAM patch as suggested above

I had a similar problem as well (got a "this program is not compatible with Win. 8" error on trying to start it up), but I think I had found a patch developed on ModDB that may alleviate it.

http://www.moddb.com/games/star-wars-empire-at-war-forces-of-corruption/downloads/windows-vista-and-windows-7-fix

This might help if you want to run this game in compatibility mode, but I recommend everyone tests it first to see if it'll work on their system for a period of time.

I suspect that, as the game was developed in 2006, OS architecture simply advanced too far for the game's developed system architecture to keep up. Of course, I might be wrong about this, but I can only speculate.

Anyways, give this a whirl and, if it works, have fun! Glad to be of some help.

full info about patch
This update addresses the following two issues:
• Fixes an issue when playing STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR (TM) Forces of Corruption on a 64-bit OS that has greater than 2GB of RAM.
• Fixes an issue with game freezes in the Multiplayer Lobby for both STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR (TM) and STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR (TM) Forces of Corruption.


This update is compatible with STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR (TM) Gold Pack, the STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR (TM) retail release, as well as the STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR (TM) Forces of Corruption expansion pack. Steam users do not need to apply this update - it is already incorporated into the game(s).

Please note that this update does not include previous game patches, and you should ensure you have installed the latest patches, before running this update.
