digitalmars.empire - FORTRAN Empire difficulty level?

I'm using a derivative* of the VAX/VMS FORTRAN 77 Empire (Version 4.0, dated 18-Jan-81) which I converted to run on a PC. This version has the random map generation. I've seen references to a version 5.0 and a note that it allowed the user to select the difficulty level. I'd like to add this to my version. Does anyone know how the user-selectable difficulty level was implemented? Or maybe someone has a code snippet? I could just keep picking cities randomly until the desired level was found by chance, but there's probably a better way. ( * My version appears to come from the original DECUS FORTRAN 77 version. I obtained it in 1983 and converted it to FORTRAN IV and ran it on a Sperry mainframe. I also fixed some bugs, added a "follow shore" mode for armies and ships, and added a greatly enhanced map printout, along with other minor features. I recently retrieved it from one of my 9-track tapes and converted it (using the Open Watcom FORTRAN 77 compiler) to run as a DOS application on a PC using ANSI.SYS. I added single-character input and converted the map printout to write an RTF file so it can be easily printed on 8.5x11 paper.) -- Bob Scheurle njtbob2 X-verizon-X.net Remove X's and dashes

Is there any change of getting a copy of this derivative?
