Hi guys!
I want to try to start making something like AOE 1 using HTML5 Canvas just for fun. Could you tell me where I can find the original resources of this game in one archive (textures, sounds, map tiles, etc), does it exist on this website? I tried to find it myself, but only found some tools for extracting resources. Thank you!

You need the game to find all these files. They're in different .drs files located in the game directory. Although I am not sure it would be allowed (or maybe even illegal) to upload all the original files on this site.

As for unit/building graphics I believe some still images can be found in the granary as they were uploaded for the purpose of creating scenario bitmaps. Other than that your best bet is indeed to download a .DRS editor and extract what you want from the files themselves.

Obviously don't do anyhting you shouldn't be doing with copyrighted materials.

Would it be really illegal to make a tiny playground as a hobby or would it be more illegal than creating mods and scenarios?

As Microsoft owns the rights to the graphics, it would probably be illegal to use outside of the game, unfortunately :/

It's only illegal if used for commercial purposes and sellinng.

This should give you a nice start.

some ingame graphics

a few tiles

(Please do not hotlink).

I'm intrigued. I have knowledge of web languages too. What do you plan to create with the graphics? Adding JS for some functionality?
