I have Aoe 1, and want to play it via LAN, but when I click on multiplayer, it tells me that I need a CD for 1-3 players.

I have only two PC's hooked up (IPX). I have fully installed the game on both and have got the updates.

Do I need a CD for each PC??

NO, you only need 1 CD every 3 computers. Tho, you should if you can have each player use a CD, because the game will run smoother, but its not nessesary. So I don't know why your connection won't work. Maybe someone else here is more familier with LAN games. Good Luck.

In this case, the CD needs to be in the host computer, because you can't even get that far without it in, whereas on the zone, the zone software gets you in. Even if that don't work, just get the crack.

Vlad's right...it only slows the game down if you have a crappy cdplayer.

Really? A bunch of people told me it helps it to runs smooth cause the comp that doens't have the CD doesn't have to comunicate with the hosts CD for stuff it can get on your own CD, and since it's local, its obviously faster. I thought it made sense. But, I don't HAVE a crappy CD ROM. 52 true X.

and it depends on your connection too, a crappy CD ROM won't slow down the game if your internet connection is 26400. Or if you have only a 133 with 16 megs of RAM. The CD ROM isn't NECCESARYLY the bottleneck.

let me clarify something...all cd players are crappy by nature. This thing about cd access would be true if there was anything the game needed from it, but there isn't. I don't care how fast your CDrom is, your HD is faster, and everything is on there. The installation aoe used is simpler than most games have used in a long time because it's so easy to hack and mess with. I can prove that the CD is unnecessary too...just play a game, multi or single with no CDs, only the crack. Bingo, proof.

there are ONLY 2 BYTES you need to change in the exe file and it wont even try to ask for the CD... this literally PROOVES that CD is not needed AT ALL.
