This is one of the first times in my life I've ever posted to a UBB asking for help. I'm usually the one giving it out.
I purchaced AoE RoR from eBay after getting hooked on the Trial verion, then come to find out that I need the full version of AoE 1.0 to play it. Any work arounds out there besides putting another $15-$20 into that first version I'll never play?

For my part, I don't think there's anything you can do but buy the full version, that is, both packs.

But then again, there's always software piracy...

Between you, me, and god knows who else, isn't what I'm trying to pull off in the first place a form of piracy?

You should have purchased the gold version. That gives you both AOE and the expansion ROR. Rise of Rome in itself is not a game. It is just an extension of the original Age of Empires.

from all my experience of tricking Windows upgrade versions into thinking there are current versions on the HD, all I'll need is the main executable for the first game, the name of the folder I'm supposed to put it in, and some registry entries.....just a guess....I might be off....I'm not too much for games. To tell the truth, this is the first game I've ever gotten hooked on.

Shame Shame, buy the original game, it should be cheap by now. Or, if possible, you could do an article on ES and maybe they will let you have a free copy :P. if ya like it as much as us, you should buy the whole game.

being the editor in chief of whatever magazine, you should be able to afford it.

And desert, enough ilegal copies exist out there, dont think one more makes a difference.
