It's been three days, and I STILL cannot open the .dat files from data and data2 folders. I want to be able to edit them and view them, but I've been unsuccessful. I've researched, and this is my last resort.

I've tried:
MS Word
MS Excel
Wordpad
and Notepad

How, can I open .dat files?

Thanks

It's not a noobish question, actually. Truth is, if you open the DAT files in a text editor, any changes to the DAT files might screw up the game.

First, back up the files. Then, go download Advanced Genie Editor (AGE) here.

Something to remember: always know where you're going, but never forget where you came from.

The Age of Chivalry is upon us! Visit the only wiki devoted exclusively to Aoc:H by clicking on the preceding link. Oh yeah, and it works with the HD edition, too--just make sure to get this first.

No do not get AGE that is for AoK. For AoE you want AoEd or RoRd.
