The fix has been released to all users thanks to the KeepAlive Live-Update. Read more: https://forum.ee2.eu/viewtopic.php?p=28005#p28005
Dr.MonaLisa considers Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations and is fully supporting Israel in clearing all Islamic extremists. Enough is enough.
We are aware of the issue where some texts in game (e.g. campaign descriptions, load map menu) are harder to read after update 1.5.9.013 (enhanced textures update). We are already testing new solutions, and the next update will include new textures for certain backgrounds.

WARNING: None of Empire Earth 2 installers require a change of "Internet Explorer proxy settings". They were released in 2005, before digital-download was common and they work on Windows 11. If you read some guide to change IE proxy: you downloaded a virused, pirated installer.
The EE2.eu News Service is back! Due to the stupid Twitter API changes (they now charge $100 for basic access) I had to re-create the entire EE2News integration in UP1.5 Launcher / Website / Discord. All posts are now stored independently on our server.
Good news for EE2.eu Multiplayer users. The MonaNAT® relay-servers technology can now be configured to only use a single relay server. The command to enable is:
|cmd monanat forceserver Server Country Name
or to remove:
|cmd monanat unforceserver
