Thanks, Rich. I updated your roster to include the early members of Empire along with one of your group's early releases (Stunt Car Racer).

You are right! The group exists since 1989. The old members beeing re-importers puting the EMPIRE intro in front of the US importing group intros! I was before cracking stuff for fun in a local group called TWK (The Whiz Kids) since 1987 and one day i was contacted by an EMPIRE member (hotshot)who asked me to join because he had seen my cracks and wanted me to crack for his group! he sent me some originals (one i remember is Test Drive II) and i sent him back the cracks... he said i had passed the test and that if i wanted to join i was in! So i joined and cracked many games for EMPIRE but shortly after all the people that were in when i joined left the scene! I wanted to be in a group that would break new frontiers for a Canadian group into the importing scene! I then asked The Extremist to join since i knew he had good skills on the 64 and he was a swapping friend and also a software maniac like me! ;) In the beginning we were struggling into the importing scene since we were new and also everybody though we kinda sucked since we were canadians! We then were offered to join Napalm by Toxic Roadkill who wanted to have an importing section to this hacking group made from remains of FBR members who didn't want to join Intense. I cracked again many games for Napalm and we also imported a couple games but still weren't beeing trusted by European groups! Seeing that Napalm members were leaving and the group wasn't going nowhere we then decided to leave! We then met booze at a local copy party and he was fixing europeean demos for a local group called the prosoft team. We asked Booze if he wanted to fix for us and he agreed! beeing groupless me, the extremist and booze we offered our services to INC who rejected us since we were canadians and didn't know us! I then decided to rebuild EMPIRE and INC died shortly after! I started importing some games for EMPIRE and then Booze fixed the game creatures that everybody was saying then was unfixable! We released the only version that we could get (Manowar's) since every other group had given their version to other major importing groups! The rest is history! Booze became even better fixer with time and so did the Extremist and europeans started to open their eyes more after we had released creatures! I could go on and on about our history with other members who enventually joined and made what empire had become! This is just a little slice of the EMPIRE history.

The group states that it is founded in 1991, yet I have a release by Empire (Stunt Car Racer) dating October 29, 1989... oddly enough... with a different member list aside from Extremist and Rich. Was the group "reborn" in the 1990s? I won't update until I get confirmation.
