Long Time Happy Customer

I first bought Sean's games almost 10 years ago. Conquest is my favorite. Any problems I've had have always been fixed. I moved a couple times, got a new computer, and my backup install was saved on a CD that was boxed up somewhere. I emailed my purchase information to see if I could get a new copy ...

No I just modified my sound card properties in control panel. I think just disabling the sound blaster enhancements option would be enough to fix it. Ironically I think playing those very short sound files with that setting doesn't work with my hardware/drivers/setup for whatever reason. Bug ridden ...

Fixing sound problems

I think I finally have sound working right. I had to lower my sound sampling rate to 44100 24bit and disable sound blaster enhancements. I suspect other audio devices may have issues as well and require similar tweaks to fix sound issues. Windows Vista and Windows 7 have frequent sound problems with...

If you can't use google and figure out how to forward a port you don't deserve to play online games. Sorry to be so blunt but your router manual and Windows firewall help should answer all your questions except for the port you need to forward and since you know that the rest is trivial.

I've owned the game for years and never bothered to play a network game. Just for the heck of it I fired up a network game and just as I showed up someone left. Missed my chance I guess. :)

I mostly play it for a mind numbing relaxing game vs the computers. Endless fun.

Sometimes the attack sounds work. Once they stop working they don't work again at all until the program restarts. Usually they quit working after some event sound plays like when a player is defeated. This time I did my attack, did my final move, the sound played for that, then the computer started ...

I have the latest sound drivers and this is a brand new computer setup. Windows 7 64bit SP1, 16GB RAM, quad core i7 3.07Ghz, Radion HD 6870 1GB. I think part of the problem is that sounds are being played over the top of each other. The computer is probably too fast. Shorter duration sound files wou...

Sound in Windows 7

I'm running Conquest v4.0p in Windows 7 64bit with a Creative Sound Blaster Xi-Fi Titanium. The sounds of attacking armies are not working. In my Windows XP setup they worked. I've tried running the game with Creative Alchemy but the improvement is minimal at best. Any tips on getting decent sound i...
