Your own spy in the command of :
EMPIRE Version 5.00 1-Dec-82
MS-DOS Release 1.1 27-Jun-85

This program was written because the EMPIRE game for the PC did not have
a was to obtain a summary of all the pieces. What ever happened to the
fighter that I set on 'Sentry', which city was it in ?

EMP_SPY will tell you where it is. It will break out all your pieces and
attempt to determine the current status. But it goes further than that. It
is like having a spy in the inner workings of the EMPIRES command center,
You will also know what the EMPIRE is planning to do!.

The program is run with the command:

A>EMP_SPY file.name

The 'file.name' is used literaly in the open, so drive:\path may (must)
be included. Since the output is produced through the BIOS, you may pipe
the result into another file for editing or printing with :

A>EMP_SPY file.name > result

The end of this file contains a sample 'result' file. The program as you
have it now will produce all of the unit tables, as well as the city
breakdown. The map is an added option. In order to produce the map, you
must obtain the correct procedure. This is done as follows:

Send $5.00, a self-addressed stamped envelope, and the series number
from the program (displayed when run) to

RTSoftware
POB 674
Columbia, MD 21045

At this price, it represents about 6 cents an hour for my time, or
about 1 hour of your time. It seems reasonable. If there proves to be
enough interest, I will finish off the editor for these files. Knowing the
entire picture gives you a very good advantage, and having an editor to
play God with seems to make the game pointless, but to each his own.
