Hello im a poster from RTW. WAIT STOP. Im not hear to annoy yous.

It's just ive recently read the thread over there about the AOE heavens. And it made me think. How much i miss that game. Im so desprate to get my hands on the game. But the last time i played it was ages ago before EE.

So i was wondering. What is the best one to get. NOT AOE3 tho cos im not wanting to go too far just yet.

Thanks. And PS get used to me once ive got the game im not leaving.

So yeh hears a bit about me;

My name is Sean Reilly,im 16 years old, i live in fife in Scotland (the dogs head) I like skateboarding Working Out, boxing, bmxing, computers, woman of course , and im at college right now studying Quantity Survaying, and currently fitting windows to pass the time when out of college.

Hope to post ya soon

Since this is AoE1 I'd suggest Rise of Rome.

You're 16 and studying QS? I have to wait till University, when I'm eighteen if I want to.

Scotland is different, they take them earlier.

It's an opinion question. AoK has our largest and longest lasting fanbase but that's other peoples' reasons for liking it. Games like AoK and EE added the next level of complexity to gameplay, which many people prefer, but complexity alone does not a great game make. They also added triggers to designing, which AoE does not have (although it is moddable in just about every other way). Depends what you want.

All of them have demos you can download and try first so it's no big deal to do that, then see what you think. People can only tell you why they like it.

If you're just looking for plain AoE, I'd get Gold Edition. It's got the original and RoR on one CD.

I got mine, a used one, at Amazon.com for something like 8 dollars (what ever that is in Europe.) The cheapest there was only two dollars.

Welcome to the forums!

It all depends on what you prefer more, like Phill said. As my personal opinion, I can tell that AOK is in almost all aspects a better game than AOE. It has better graphics, more intelligent units (villagers automatically go to work after they have constructed a lumber camp for example), better balance (every unit has a counter) and better campaigns. However, somehow AOE 1 has that magic that keeps me coming back to it and wanting to play it again and again. I like to play AOK too, but somehow... you get the idea.

I reccommend just getting both.

If you get AOK first you'll think AOE sucks. Trust me. It'd be better to get AOE first. That way, you can like both games.

Hey there i have been playing it. But had to stop because something is doing my nut in.

On the normal AOE the mouse moves fine. but when i start a game it gets really slow and only moves round the edge of the screen not the middle (very annoying and obviously the game can't be played)

And on the exspansion the mouse moves fine again untill you start a game. when your in the game the mouses moves rather slow but playable. so i tried to go into options to change the mouse settings and when i click on menue the mouse goes REALLY! slow and again only moves at he edge of the screen not the middle. So no settings can be changed.

Has anyone had this problem? If so how do i fix it cos i can't play the game untill its fixed

What? I have never heard of that problem before. That sounds quite scary though. Have you tried re-installing? I reccommend not running any other programms while installing and playing by the way.

Yeh i closed everything when i installed it. It also told me to urn it in compatibility mode or something. So i ran it in windows ME mode but i dont know if that makes a difference.
