Hi. It has been a long time since I played Age of Empires and Age of Emipires I: Rise of Rome expansion. 2 years ago, I bought both on sale at Walmart for $10. Admittedly, I am more of an AGE II fan. On Age of Empires II, they have information about the historical information that the "real civilizations" (that existed in real life throughout history) that the "game civilizations" are based on as you click on the "History" page in either Age of Kings or Conquerors. I remember playing AGE I (maybe not the expansion) and remember being able to access the same historical/background information on the "real civilizations," albeit through different means. I only have the AGE I: Rise of Rome expansion with me (or at least I think I only have it). Does anyone know how to access the historical information on the "real civilizations" for the AGE I" Rise of Rome expanison? It is just that I always wanted to learn more about the ancient cilizations the "game civilizations" are based on... E.g. the Romans, Carthaginians, Greeks, Egyptians, Macedonians, etc. I apologize for the bad grammar and for the good chance that I am unclear. Thank you.

You can start the help file from the game itself or manually. It is not supported by newer windows systems like vista, 7 and 8 however. If I remember correctly, that is where this info is located. Perhaps somebody can make a pdf from it and upload it?

About the Rise of Rome expansion pack civilizations though, those are not included in the help file, and only found inside the game manual.

Did you copy that directly from when pressing F1 in-game? I remember the nearly, if not exact wording from the game.

Why would you take the time to read this signature? Chances are that there are many other posts below mine.

Does anyone know where I can find this information online? Thank you.

Actually the amount of real historical information about the civilizations in the AoE1 game help greatly surpasses the information of civilizations from posterior Ensemble studios games, except maybe for AoM...that game had a great help.

Sadly the RoR exclusive civs are provided with less info and such info can't be accessed thru the game.

And I deleted the replicated topic.

I don't know of any place where those texts can be found online. As Thompsoncs stated, making a pdf file of it would maybe not be such a bad idea.
