Firstly, you need to install base SWG along with SWGEmu following their instructions at the following link.

Install SWGEmu

Now you install Empire In Flames.

Download here.

Rough & quick directions, courtesy of BluePyros:

  • Download the installer EXE
  • Run the Installer (May need additional approvals for windows control systems)
  • Run the Launcher
  • Click Settings > browse
  • SWG install is your install of SWGEmu.
  • Wait for patching to finish


  • Visit the forums to create an account:
  • Enter a secure username and password. The account you create here will be the same one you use to log into the EiF game client
  • Complete the email verification. Be sure to check your junk or spam folders
  • Log in and play!


Additional Troubleshooting Tips:

  • Whitelist the launcher application or outright disable overbearing anti-virus programs
  • Run the launcher as Admin manually (its under compatibility mode for the launcher EXE itself.)
  • Install Empire in Flames to the root directory (e.g. C:\EmpireInFlames) rather than Program Files. Windows permissions tend to cause problems with the patcher if EiF is placed in Program Files.
