The Python/Tk Empire Interface is a graphical front end to the Wolfpack Empire server (www.wolfpackempire.com). Ptkei (the client's nickname) provides a powerful graphics based interface to what would otherwise be a purely terminal based game.
This client functions solely as a client. In order to use this program effectively one must be familiar with Empire.
Python is a very high-level interpretive programming language. Ptkei uses this language (and its interface to Tcl/Tk) to provide a flexible, portable, and fast interface.
Thanks to the developers, contributors and maintainers of PTkEI.
Ptkei 1.18.1 was released on September 07, 2003. I have updated the client so it is compatible with the 4.3.XX Empire Server.
PTkEI 2.00.0 is now available! So far, works with Windows7 & Linux with Python 2.7.X. Read the documentation for full details. Includes tool for the visually impaired. Enjoy!
This is a great client! Im hoping to get many ideas from this to use in my iPad empire client. Also just a note this works on Mac OSX too...
