Well, has anybody tried it out yet? I ran through a few quick RMs and DMs against the AIs just to see how much difference there is, but I can't gauge properly as I wasn't playing against real, competitive humans.

I quite like the individual adjustments to the various units. However, I couldn't yet see how it would affect gameplay much, as I was routinely steamrolling over the AI players - no challenge at all.

I wouldn't mind having a couple of games with you guys to try the patch out. I can't wait to spam cataphracts. They're incredibly powerful in this new patch with +5 pierce armour. A suggestion for HCav though - maybe they could have +2 or +3 pierce armour to make them feasible on the battlefield for players who can't afford the Cataphract upgrade. Currently they have only +1, I believe.

Like I said, I can't really feel the effect of the many modifications yet. To me, the biggest change would be the reduction of Cataphracts' vulnerability to arrow fire, and maybe the +1 range for Cents? Cents with aristocracy now are much better at taking down fleeing units.

I read about the slight enhancements to the unique gathering rates for Bab, Egyptian and Persian miners and gatherers, but I don't really understand their significance. To me, they're already very fast (ie. Egyptians mine gold very swiftly, and Persian hunters gather meat fast enough).

ive been away for the past week so i have only just received the patch. just had a quick try and it does look interesting. i tried getting my head around the other changes, and i can only assume they relate to the out of date game manual? i believe that the changes are tiny...

i have had problems getting onto igz last week so will try gameranger in the next few days. i will be up for testing so look out for me. i havent installed the software yet but assume my name to be irwinner_beta. i havent played online for a long time so be gentle

just speculating here, but the current change list generally targets DM games and the "bronze" era of RM games. i did have 1 suggestion for rasteve which i wait to see his thoughts on... minoan's counter to being rushed during a 1v1 dm game (or better put, lack of counter...)

Basse - i dont want to get banned from the forums!!!!

Why will you get banned for sending a link where I can find the patch?

Check your hg_rcm(at)live(dot)com email.

Edit: Also at this stage we are waiting for the copy and install script to be developed.

could someone clarify whether we can talk about the patch or forward it on via email? i want to start playing tomorrow but dont want to try and log in here and find i am banned.

on a side note has anyone found anything worth mentioning? i played a few games sp mode 1v3 and found that the centie bonus is a little tedious. i was thinking you could do a double line of centies attacking all at once but the centies try and get into a circular position on the target.

cataphracts look frightening. havent really seen a comp player hit me with mass horse archers as of yet (dm) but hoping for better results mp.

Duan: it doesn't seem to be clear what you are talking about. So, what are you talking about? Rasteve's editing work, or a really new patch, or a very old one?

It sounds awesome! I will test it right away!

And that newer patch with he was planning to release next week sound cool but I don't know if the new stuffs will fit in so good in the game

EDIT:

I have have done everything that is needed to install the patch and it even says INSTALATION COMPLETE but when I try to run the patch it says Age of Empires Expansion requiers Age of Empires 1.0, 1.0A or 1.0B to be installed. I don't know whats wrong. I even tried to reinstall the whole game. Still the same thing...

2nd EDIT:

Now it works and I think the new bug fixes and everything is so cool. The game got better kinda

Alright to clear up what is happening here is that Rasteve has e-mailed people from AoEH with his latest patch and a explanation why he has been away. Right now I believe the transportation of the patch is in a gray area that I wouldn't like to discuss (hence we will not discuss it here) but he also mentioned that he will be working on a better transportation/installation system like those of Trisolo's.

Now Rasteves has computer troubles recently which is why he hasn't been able to be here and also why not everyone got an e-mail (he could only e-mail people whose address he had). I hope that clears up some confusion.

That means I'm not allowed to ask for anyone to send me it, I guess... Oh well...
