INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: Download and install SWGEmu. http://www.swgemu.com/forums/content.php?r=179-Install-SWGEmu
Empire in Flames is based on SWGEmu’s Core3, and until we have a proper launcher, this is the best way to begin.
Step 2: Test SWGEmu to ensure it is working before proceeding with Empire in Flames install.
Step 3: Register an account with Empire in Flames.
Step 4: Download the EiF patch. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0u-OILWuzRgbzhxdGZZV01EUmc/edit?pref=2&pli=1
It contains three files – one for actual client files, the other two for configuration and connection information for the SWGEmu client.
Step 5: Unzip the EiF patch into your SWGEmu folder. If this is your first time installing, it should prompt you to overwrite two files – make sure that you click “Yes”. This folder should have SWGEmu.exe – if it does not, you’re likely unzipping to the wrong folder.
Step 6: Launch SWGEmu.exe directly. DO NOT USE THE LAUNCHPAD, OR IT WILL REMOVE THE EIF FILES!
Step 7: Use the account you registered in Step 3 to log into the server.
Step 8: Create a character. It is recommended you start on Corellia in Coronet. The starter player city Broken Bridge is north of Coronet and accepts new players.
Step 9: Good luck, have fun, and may the Force be with you!
