I got a set of speakers with a subwoofer for Christmas! I immediately plugged them in to replace the cheap old junk that passed for speakers on my PC, pushed in the AoE Gold CD, and WOW! It was like playing the game for the first time again. I had never realized how amazingly beautiful sound this game has. The thud of axes on trees, the cling of swords, the thundering smash of catapult stones, the whales...

Now I have GOT to buy a cheap old AoE CD which everybody says has better music than RoR. Should be a well-spent $10.

I got the original AoE CD... pretty good. I was surprised that some of the music is the same as that of the AoE Gold CD. So... does AoE Gold have the same music as the RoR CD, or is it a "best of" from AoE and RoR?

Remember - even Heavy Catapult with Engineering researched has the same range as the Mirror Tower (17)

Of course not against 100 Heavy Catapults...
