i recently took back up my crack addiction to age of empires. i remember why i gave it up, but now im back on the horse. the games take forever, i just played one that took almost 3 hours, but i throughly enjoyed destroying my opponent.

so any comments, thoughts, questions share them here.

my favorite is AoE2. don't have the expansion pack yet but looking for it.

i have been trying to get custom scenarios to allow me to play a multi player game over a LAN to let me have max resources of each, but when i set the resources, then start the game, it changes the resources back to the setting in the game set up menu. anyone know how to get it to work so that instead of the regular setting it uses your custom setting?

AoE2 the conquerers was SO much fun. I kicked ass at that game. I was a big fan of the British. 120 elite longbowman were hard to beat.

120 paladins ftw?

Even though thats really expensive, but you'd need FAR less than that to take down those brits.

oh the days.

I was never really into AoE. I'm more of a C&C guy myself. That being said, I loved just making an army of nothing but War Elephants and crushing anything in my path.

I loved AOE 2... Me and my dad would have these epic 4-hour long multilayer games where we each had like 4 layers of walls and 10 castles each. Age of Mythology was fun too, even if it was cheesy. I never really got into AOE 3 though.

I still play Age of Kings on a regular basis. Longbowmen FTW! Great game. I love making huge fortresses in the scenario editor and setting myself up against 6 enemies. Good times!

the third one never appeased me, either its the cheesy looking graphics, or just my graphic card. i think that AoE2 is just sooo much better.

I tried to get back into AOE a while ago but the online MSN Gaming Zone has changed to like, some crappy GameSpy client and no one ever plays on it! Lame!

I had AoE2 Age of Kings, but lost it. But the problem was that whenever I did random map, the Computer would forfeit within 5 minutes, before I had even built an army to attack him.

I still have AoE1 Gold Edition tho. My friend has Age of Mythology, which is mad fun.

p.s.: I love the cheats on these games! Especially age of mythology, like the fork boys and stuff. I also think the first one has this cool ape that's really strong. And Kings has the car with guns!

Ahhh man. Back in elementary school, AoE was an after-school activity.

if we could figure out a way to get a UG game going, that would be fun.

I have The Conquerers, still play it once in a while too. But I hate it when you have the highest score and all the computers come after you.

hey the humanity, I read your sig and facepalmed. do you realize why people have those avatars? or are you stupid? and I dont think the avatar you're refering to is actually Indiana Jones.

and on topic, AoE2 is the only game I still have installed on my computer. reading this thread has reminded me that I should download the expansion pack. and maybe check my basement for AoE...

I have the AoE II trial.

Magonels FTW!

Get 25 on each side of the enemy and their civilization is hopeless.

Anyone else have it? If you do, is there any way to have a multi player game over the internet?

If so, I'd be up for a game tonight!

ok, so I checked Pirate Bay for the Conquerors expansion, but all the downloads have AoE2 and the expansion. all I need is the expansion, I have AoE2. anyone know where I could find just the expansion.

go to the "I have Cancer" Thread. the guy (Grundy0 I think is his name) who originally had the avatar is dying of cancer, and some people have his avatar to show respect. where have you been these last few weeks?

I was addicted to AoE2 back in the day.

Used to alternate between that and Star Craft

Star Craft OWNZ!! Waiting for Star Craft II to be released.

I played AoE2 and 3, but I played 3 more.

I loved playing Russians and making a huge regular army, but then like, 75 light cavalry (cossacks, horse archers, stuff like that). I'd then take this "Light Brigade" and mercilessly massacre the enemy's peasants who were mining or lumbering or something. They could flee to my own lines before the enemy's army could catch up.

It was great.
