    I'm up for any of those as long as it's the original games and not those third party expansions forced by mircroshit after killing ensemble.

    Oh, you don't remember how the truce thing started?

    At first people began houseruling the game to see if underpowered nations/cards or inadequate boomers could be used more often. Back then things weren't so bad since the 'treaties' were only 10 minutes long. Then people began scheduling longer 'treaties' just for the fun of fucking around with insane endgame economies and homebases surrounded with ten thousand rows of walls. Basically the popamole version of death match.

    Two expansions later and Ensemble gave people the ingame option of setting treaties of up to and past a whole goddamn hour. This turned 'treaty' from a retarded thing between friends into a 'valid' form of AoE3. The players never stopped aggravating each other over it. I'll never forget the tears of 'Pro Treaty Players' whenever they were utterly destroyed by the mean supremacy players.

    I can destroy all other players, 40 minutes truce or 10 minute rush. Your choice.

    Nah, I didn't play multi back when AoE 3 was new.

    I'm not a pro by any means but I think treaty is boring and lame. Just get rekt till you git gud and suck up those losses instead of turtling like a madman for a full hour.

    I can turtle like a madman for a full hour and still win. Or rush in 7 minutes and win.

    Oh that's AoE3, I don't have that, just AoE2. I'm in the Conquerors lobby, sent you a msg now too.

    Take screenshots and videos for those of us held back by work. Maybe we can turn AoE into a codexian sport, a new more gentlemanly way of solving future grievances.

    I hope the HD version allows you to play the normal version too, not 100% sure about that.


    Will post replays probably.

    Hmmm, to install the non-HD version I'd have to dust off a very old CD.

    I think HD sys-reqs are:

    But actually on Voobly you play with non-HD version. Just played one with Johannes and he won. I have a lot to remember, playing some solos now.

    One thing I noticed is that on HD version the default hotkeys are different, wtf!?

    http://steamcommunity.com/app/221380/discussions/0/666825524894381540

    One good thing to report is that the game ran smoothly on Voobly, no lags or disconnects.

    Problem solved!

    Seems like I can run it solid, then.

    Dial me up when you guys go play more.

    You guys played The Conquerors or The Forgotten?

    We played The Conquerors. I think Johannes has the original CD version while I have the steam HD version. The Veeblo thingy turns the HD version into the original version to synchronize the games, so I think there are no forgotten or african civs.

    I'll try 5-10 single test builds to feudal to get it right before going multi again. Here's a guide I'm gonna watch now:

    The "Age Of x" games were the popamole of the 90s Golden Age™ RTS boom. If this was RTSCodex and not RPGCodex I'd suggest banning everybody who posted in this thread.
