I found my original Empire disk (720k) and was able to install it on my PC.  I am surprised the disk is still readable after all these years.  Anyway, when I started the game, it asked me to enter words from the manual before I could play!  Darn, I forgot that kind of copy protection even existed.

Is there a link to a downloadable or on-line manual so I can enter the codes and play the game again?  Thank you.

Lucky you finding the disk.  I wish I could find mine I miss the game.  I lost my book why over in Saudie in 1990 and played the game by using (a) for the code for the longest.  After a few tries I was in.  Ever want to sell that disk I would love to buy it.

I just found my version 2.05 running out of DOS. I'm on a mad search now to find the original manual that goes with that version. All I can find right now is a copy of the manual for Empire Deluxe. I'm thinking about buying a copy of this if I can find one that is not being sold for over $99. But I worry that it won't have the same version. I'm trying to play the game in it's natural habitat. If you have a copy of it please post. Someone posted a link to the Empire Deluxe manual in response to this thread a while ago but I'm looking for the original manual to get past the old copyright protection.
