Emperor - Rise of the Middle Kingdom - GoG Version
- Install game as usual
- After the first launch of the game switch to window mode in the game
- Disable virtual desktop
The game seems to run in full speed, but might appear to be slower, since you can adjust the gamespeed itself 90% seems to be a good speed, even 100% if you like it a little faster
The game offers 800x600 and 1024x768 resolution, as well as fullscreen and windowed mode. If you use windowed mode you can disable the virtual desktop.
Please note: The game suffers from some serious sound issue. Every sound seems to echo, this includes music and videos as well and it's very annoying.
Disabling Music helps to not get crazy, sounds are often short so it doesn't bother too much.
Without the sound issue the game would probably rate perfect.
