This article was created for the purposes of determining everything there is to Battle Realms inside and out.

Battle Realms was coded with Microsoft Visual C++.

These libraries are imported by it.

  • WINMM.dll - For time functions.
  • KERNEL32.dll - Basic WinApi library.
  • USER32.dll - Basic WinApi library.
  • GDI32.dll - This is a graphics library.
  • ADVAPI32.dll - Registry
  • SHELL32.dll - To execute shell commands
  • IMM32.dll 
  • WSOCK32.dll - This is a socket library.
  • RPCRT4.dll

  • WS2_32.dll - More sockets

  • MSACM32.dll - Streams?

Most of these were probably put there by the Visual C++ compiler.


C:/Projects/COMMON - Contains directories and files probably shared by other Liquid games.

C:/Projects/Samurai/Code - Contains the .cpp files used by Battle Realms.
