    ok, i usualy get the list of RC's and download them from this link
    http://forums.empiresmod.com/forumdisplay.php?f=33&page=2&order=desc
    but lately its stopped working. It's only when i went to play empires just 5 mintues ago (20:00) that there was no server. So im guessing there's a new RC but because i now can acess it, I cant get it. Could someone please be as kind as to post the link for the RC list here.

    The 1.08 testing has been closed to the public due to public release being near.

    ok so im guessing then that the server was also shut down due to that. Also will the people who got the RC's have to get a special patch to get rid of the RC in the game name, cause im assuming that the public relase won't have rc29 in their name. In that case if you don't get the patch to change the name will that mean you can't join the server because its a different version. Man this sounds such as stupid question, but i want to be sure

    The public version will install to /empires/ while the private tests installed in /empires_108/. You can just delete the private test folder.

    I think it would be better that the game would install in new folder called empires_2_0 or something to prevent errors which could be caused by old 1.071b installation in that same folder.

    But this is just an idea and I think that kind of things won't happen.

    That would make the whole folder outdated when a new version comes out, and it's been Empires since it was made.

    when you install it the first thing it should do is delete your old empires (move the screenshots) and then install the new one.

    keep the final release as "empires" for the folder name, then change the beta folder from "empires_108" to "empires_beta." thats the most suitable way to do it. then you dont need to change the folder of each empires public/beta release.

    So then, I guess that that new patch/hotfix is meant just to ensure most people can't play? Or did I miss something, because I see names on the server that I would not believe got into a closed beta.

    First you had to volunteer yourself to be a tester. Then, you had to have been active in the 1.08 Testing forum. If you didn't do either of those, you're no longer a tester. Be patient for the release of 2.0 coming soon.
