You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
A simple but surprisingly fun little real-time strategy game that puts you in charge of an emergency rescue department. In the game you will need to dispatch police, fire crew and paramedics to various accident and disaster scenarios. The game lacks the often daunting complexity of many PC simulation games and is a good introduction to the real time strategy genre for older children and younger teens.
The game should install without any problems on a modern PC. The default installation directory is C:\Emergency. We recommend keeping this folder since the game will place its save files and other configuration data into the same folder it is installed to.
Running the game
Before you start the game you should perform one simple compatibility fix. Add the games executable file (emergy.exe) to the list of programs that are excluded from Data Execution Prevention (DEP). For a tutorial on how to do this, see this link.
Fixing audio problems
The game uses a CD audio soundtrack. While this does work on more modern versions of Windows, you will most likely find that the music doesn’t loop. When the current levels music has finished playing, you will be left with sound effects only. To fix this problem, we can patch the game with the _inmm.dll tool. Simply follow the tutorial here to extract the games CD audio then patch the games executable (emergy.exe). The CD audio will then loop correctly.
There aren’t really any graphical or other options to tweak, so you can now simply start to play.
Random crashes – Many gamers around the internet report random crashes with this game. We did experience this before we disabled DEP, but once DEP was disabled the game seemed to run just fine. We saved and loaded without a problem and played through the entire first scenario without any unexpected crashes.
Windows 7 issues – We have only tested the game with Windows 8 (so far). According to some reports the game has problems with corrupt/miss-coloured graphics in Windows 7. We will look into this in the near future and post any solutions we come up with.
