Is it possible? I'm running Win98se and could have sworn I used to play the game not so much in a window, but in the maximun screen space while keeping the taskbar on screen so I could access other programs I had running while playing.

I loaded up the game yesterday and can't get it to work this way. If I keep the taskbar on screen it overlaps part of the game screen, and if I 'auto hide' the taskbar the game runs full screen but I can't access any of my other programs while playing.

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome!

I've never seen a way to play AOE in windowed mode. However, you could try pressing Alt + Enter while you're playing. I doubt that it works, but trying it out doesn't hurt, does it? ;-)

BTW, I wonder why you should need to run other programms while playing AOE.

I didn't think it was possible. But I could be wrong.

I don't *need* to, but when I play I usually play for a few hours and I like to be able to read any mail that comes in or answer any IMs I get.

Maybe you can put it in the shortcut thingy? I've seen on AoK Heaven guides how to run aok in windowed mode (i think), so maybe you could check there, and do the same for aoe.

No, it isn't possible. I've tried.

Using other programs at the same time slows down the computer.

Most new computers today wouldn't be bothered with AoE being run in the background.

http://vrublevsky.org/blog/2008/10/13/aoe-rise-of-rome-mod-v211/
