Set a few years before the events of Episode IV A New Hope, Empire at War lets players rewrite history as well as experience the aftermath of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the creation of the Rebel Alliance, and Darth Vader's rise to power.
Hello everyone. Today, I will be giving you guys some information on three things I have for you, a patch that make the Forces of Corruption AI smarter, patches that fix the online connectivity issues for both the Steam and retail versions of Star Wars Empire at War and Forces of Corruption, and a tutorial on how to get modifications to work for the Steam version of Forces of Corruption.

Hello everyone. My name is Adrian "The Joker" Lopez, and I am here to help you guys out with three important issues that plague Star Wars Empire at War and Forces of Corruption.
#1) The "Not So Aggressive AI" Issue
People know that the AI in Forces of Corruption is kind of lame, they do attack fairly rarely, and its up to you to ALWAYS invade their planets to get them to fight. Well not anymore! I have made a patch for Forces of Corruption that you can install to make the AI a bit more aggressive and strategic on all three difficulty levels. Download instructions are included in the file, so you can download it from these locations"
#2) The Online Connectivity Issue
I am sure you ALL know that Empire at War and Forces of Corruption are almost unplayable online. There are severe issues with logging on and playing online because of the Gamespy servers being all buggy, and thus we aren't able to enjoy the multiplayer as much as we would like. Well not anymore! I have created three patches that should fix the connectivity issues for both the retail and Steam versions of Star Wars Empire at War and Forces of Corruption.
You need to go through, download, and run each patch one by one until you are able to log on and play Star Wars Empire at War and/or Forces of Corruption. You can download from one of these locations:
#3) How to Play Forces of Corruption Mods on Steam
People are always confused on how to play mods for Forces of Corruption on the Steam version. It is a bit weird, I will admit. Here is a tutorial that will teach you how to be able to play any mod on the Steam version for Forces of Corruption.
1. Right-click on Star Wars: Empire at War Gold
2. Click "Launch Properties"
3. Type swfoc MODPATH=Mods\"mod name" in the text panel, and press OK
4. Run the game, and it'll give you the window to choose which game(original or expansion)to run, pick "Forces of Corruption"
After this, it should work. You can do this as many times as you like with any one mod installed, but you can't install more than one mod for Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption, or else the files get caught up and causes issues.
And there you go, folks! Your issues are solved for the most part. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to my website at Adrianl1996.wordpress.com
