Age Of Empires III is a triple-A RTS, that exudes quality and polish. It's what happens when some of the finest minds that defined the genre decide they're going to spend a few years doing what they do.

Introduction

This is a community created compatibility update for Age of Empires II HD to support the original The Conquerors. This patch does not violate copyright, no files from the original CD are used -- more on this below. The purpose of the patch is to provide a quick and legal way to purchase the HD version of the game through Steam, and add compatibility with the regular AoE II.

Motivation

This patch provides the ability for those that have officially purchased AoC HD from Steam, to play against / with other players using the original AoC release. It's also for those that aren't interested in AoC HD at all, but have no easy way to purchase the original game, while Amazon still sells it here -- not everyone can buy from amazon .

Reasons to play the original AoC include:
  • The original AoC still has a large and active community, especially for the Multiplayer version. On Steam for e.g There is virtually no Custom Scenario community, yet other fan sites have larger and more active player bases.

  • When AoC HD on Steam was announced many of us / the community were excited to finally have a quick and easy way to buy the game again and still be able to play with existing communities and friends. This turned out to not be the case. This patch fixes the drawbacks of isolating communities, and allows us all to now play together as we had originally hoped for.

  • These fan sites for the original AoC and it's communities sponsor some large events, such as $20,000 Nations Cup or the $50,000 War is Coming.

  • It is fair to say that while AoC HD has implemented some interesting stuff, it most certainly has quality and stability issues for a number of players. This patch provides a solution to those issues.

  • Take advantage of the fan patches created for the original version.
Compatibility

Compatibility Mode Behavior

When playing in compatibility mode, the game will behave exactly as it did in the original and the enhanced HD version , with community made patches such as UserPatch.
Some Features will remain the same: HD resolutions will still be available through the community patches -- please compare the screenshots below. Features disabled: the animated water won't be there. Features added: any feature present as part of userpatch or the multiplayer client use.

AoC HD in regular mode:

How this is Possible and Legalities

Starting in June 2015, the compatibility patch also includes some files from patch 3.9 release of AoC HD in the compatibility patch to simplify installation. These files would've otherwise between available in steam through betas opt into Patch 3.9 feature
Compatibility mode is made possibly by combining either FE files (http://www.forgottenempires.net/install) or the 1.0c patch from Microsoft for the original game, AoC HD data files and a few small edits to 1.0c exe. There are no files included from this patch off the original CDs and because of this doesn't violate any copyrights.
OK, if it's not illegal wouldn't Microsoft dislike this? We hope not, as the patch requires a full installation of AoK HD it definitely doesn’t help piracy, anyone pirating the game can already get full installations of the game available. Further, we expect this to only gain more sales for Microsoft as it reduces motivation to pirate the original game if there is a quick and legal way to get it legally.

The diagram below illustrates how compatibility mode is constructed:

I recently activated my free download for Windows 10 on my desktop PC. I play some new and some old games on this PC. I have Age of Empires 1 with its expansion pack The Rise of Rome, Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings with its expansion pack The Conquerors, & Age of Empires 3 with both the Warchiefs and Asian Dynasties expansion packs. These are all from CDs, they are not downloads.

After my upgrade, I cannot operate AoE 2 Age of Kings or The Conquerors, but #1 and #3 both work. I assumed that part of the problem was because I use a batch file to fix the multicolored graphics only present in AoE 2 because my PC flags the game as making changes to the PC and asks for Admin authority.

The internet granted me one possible fix - activating the default Administrator Account that Windows 10 adds. I did so, but didn't have any change. I also reinstalled both Age of Kings and The Conquerors and readded the batch file.

Let me describe what's happening: I insert my CD, click on the icon, message appears asking for Admin Auth. to change, I click 'Yes', nothing. I get no icon on the task bar, no screen change. This is the same whether or not I right click and choose 'Run as Administrator' or attempt to run through a third party.

Please assist if possible.
