Since the last patch through Steam, on the campaign map I can't see towns, trees, ports etc, but its still just about playable, but when I fight a
battle, at sea the ships have only parts of them showing such as the sides, no bow or stern and the crew hovering in mid air! although the battle is
However when it comes to a land battle, the setup screen appears then it just becomes a mushy unplayable mess!
I tried validating files in Steam and this made the land battles possible once although the artillery units were firing invisible cannons!
The next land battle became unplayable again and I had to shut the game down again by ctrl, alt, delete.
Before this patch the game was playable, on campaign and battle maps with the occasional naval related crash in the campaign map.
Empire has been for me just one unholy mess of a game since it came out! I certainly won't be rushing out to buy Napoleon.
P.S. I do not use any mods.

Before i tell about the bugs, let me insure you i know when my system is unstable or have bad drivers. Also i am sure my hardware is top notch and
the PSU is more then aquadate to power my i7 920 (non-overclocked) and a single HD5770 plus the rest. Total powerconsumption is only about 1/2
of what my Corsair HX620 can deliver.
The hardware is fine, my pc runs 24/7 without any hickup or BSOD, seven days a week. My Os is fine too, my system is very, very stable.
Now i know sometimes things go wrong with drivers, mostly with those of the video or audio-card. Also i run Windows 7, 64bit.
Aldo of of these things can give issues, i am pretty sure they don't and i blame solely the game-engine!
First of; it's very typical that someone else mentions the same issue's i have; exactly the same.
Second: the graphics are fine, no problem there for me. No strange glitches or missing textures whatsoever!
No, the issue i have are this:
1) Order a gentleman or any other "person" out of the city and not he, but the whole army goes.
2) When you have a stack of ships in a "trading spot" (with the yellow anker) and order one of the ships out it (clicking to go to see), the ship is
actually going: no problem! The problem lies with the rest of the "trading ships" stack: you see it immidiatly: the flag stops switching the
trade/land flag but you only see the nations flag wavering. The trade spot is then no longer occupied and tthose ships are stalled, you cannot do anything with
them exept waste them. That's the only button that still works. Very, very annoying to lose any ship that way.
***Workaround: this bug: order all your ships to sea, making the spot empty. Then send the ship(s) away to whereever you want them to go, the rest you order to
occupy that same trading spot again. Now all works fine and you trading ships are happely trading again!
3) Sometimes with Harbors and Ships it take ages after you clicked them before anything happens, or even worse and luckely seldom: the CTD happens.
Also very, very annoying; more so after you did all your work on the troops, the battles etc and then at the end think, hey let's move some ships around
and then it CTD's
4) The game only crashes just after you clicked something, that's tells me that it's not my hardware/drivers that are faulty; but the
So it would be nice if CA stops making excuses and actually FIX these issue's. I know you can't fix anything, like system incompability or a bad pc at
someone's home. But these are plain and simply game-mechanic failures which are destroying a gamers entheusiasm to play and enjoy the game.
While i have little hope that CA is gonna read this and really take it serious enough to make the game atleast playable i only can hope they do. The CTD errors
as they appear in point 3 and 4 atleast! But seeing some of these issue's already metioned sic months ago i am quite sceptical.
I loved RomeTW, MedievalTW and even ShogunTW. All of which never gave me real, annoying issues. But E-TW ? It's a monster!
