Patch Details and Message From Petroglyph
Hi everyone,

I'm a producer at Petroglyph, developer of Star Wars: Empire at war. We have been working with Disney on this patch for some time now and I'm glad to see that it has been released on Force Friday!

Per our press release announced a couple days ago[www.newswire.com], the following improvements have been patched into both Star Wars: Empire at War & Forces of Corruption:

• Gamespy completely removed as multiplayer solution in lieu of Steam multiplayer back-end in both FOC and EAW.
• Enabled windowed mode support
• 2 internal crashes found / fixed – no specific repro steps available
• Fix for broken object shadows in Empire at War: Forces of Corruption
• Fix for start game button not highlighting on mouse over
• Fix for multiplayer campaign save/load not picking the right save game on the client
• Support for more than 3 AI players in applicable games
• Fix for galactic save/load not loading a save game unless it's in slot 0
• Disable General Network Options button – This was only applicable to old modem/GameSpy players
• Hooked up community/web buttons to appropriate Steam overlay pages/websites as applicable (The old Gamespy buttons simply don’t work anymore so we repurposed them)
• Enabled selection/list of player mods on hard drive
• Crash fix for attempting to load an FOC mod in original EAW game
• Bug fix for creating units that are non-selectable in very long duration galactic mode games (makes save games unplayable past a certain point)

We have continued to watch the EAW community closely over the years and appreciate all the excellent support you have given us and the game. Our thanks to all of you for the great feedback, awesome mod packs, and overwhelmingly positive reviews and Disney for facilitating the release of this work. We hope you enjoy this special update.

-The team at Petroglyph

You know what, I tip my hat to you guys. It's very rare to see a developer put out a patch out after this long. Especially when they are adding the MP back. Seriously, great work guys :)
