Just about every time I get in these forums I seem to hear that there is always some new bug in AoE/RoR. When is this going to stop? How many more bugs are we going to find before the game becomes ruined? Now I'm hearing about some bugs called the:

"The mouse bug", "The house bug" "The berry bug"

I already am familiar with the "farm bug" & "Town center bug" but that's about all!

Please someone list every bug in this thread so I may write them down. Especially I would like to know more about this "Mouse bug" and what it does and how it works.

Explain every bug u know, if it's just a bug or a bug/cheat, and what misfortune there is to it. Just give all the details on every bug, hope you got the point, hehe thanx

Ok I've never heard of the mouse bug but the TC bugs allows multiple TCs during high lag, the Farm bug replenishes farms. The house bug, which I have not gotten to work in ROR, and It seems no one else has in ROR either, however in AOE by grouping your tc+ a house and quickly tabbing and hitting c you could produce vils from your houses. The berry bug is bad for you, what happens is the bush produces 149 rather than 150 berries, leaving you with 49 food for your next villager and an annoying wait for the next 10 food. Their is also the "Wonder" bug but that is bad also-- click your Wonder hold shift, and box in a villager, hit S and magically the wonder timer for you is reset.
Those are all that I know anyhow

it was said somewhere in this forum that the mouse bug is more dangerous then the farm bug, and can greatly be used for pumping out vills with shang. that's all i heard, i would like to know more bout it tho.

What about the gold bug? It makes you mine 3 times as much gold...

Just put chat so that everyone can see and t ype:

"I wan't more gold, i am a loser and gold is good" (this is not ment to offend!)

That will make gold appear near your first TC.

Oh and there is another bug.. called the big daddy bug, turn on cheats and type:


and you get a cool black, (black right?) car.

And then there is the Lyshmaniasis bug- characterized by the ulceration of mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, and pharynx; causing widespread destruction of tissue with marked deformity.

Sorry Lys- couldn't resist. Seeing your name has always reminded of this protozoate!

"Lysimachus" stands for one of the four generals of Alexander the great. Once he was king of Macedonia for a short period after Alex died. He quorled(sp?) alot with the other 3 generals (Selucas, Cassander, & Ptolomy) each had a devision of Alex's empire after he died.

In addition to the berry bug, the same applies to all the other resources except fishing and farming. I may be wrong, but that is what has happened to me. Really annoying is when I'm 1 food or wood away from a house or villie, and I have to wait, disrupting my villie production. Once I had 499 food, ready to tool, with my villies going toward berry bushes far, far away. That threw off my game, of course the lag was not helping either.

I tried the town center/house bug to make an extra villagers, but couldn't get it to work. Please elaborate on exactly how to do it.

When I didn't have RoR, i would build a wall when playing on the net. I would place it in between two forests (for example) and the wall would come up on the other side of one of the forests. I'm not quite sure if it can be considered as a bug, though. I was gonna list another but I forgot it.
This one isn't a bug: Somewhere there was a thread about people hacking into the game and cheating when the cheats were off.

Dancing unit bug? what does that one do?
posted 03-28-99 04:07 PM ET (US)     13 / 20       
The only bugs i've heard of are:

The "farm" bug (Did anyone know that the "farm" bug also works for RoR? I found that out!)

The "berry" bug.

The "TC" bug.


The "wood" bug.

If anyone knows any other bugs, tell me and also tel me how to activate them!!!

Of course there is still the repair bug. I'm not sure if people are aware of this, but it goes like this. You build a straight wall, basically anything that blocks a peons path to a repair target. If you are within a few square you are able to repair through the wall. Let me clarify, not the slanted walls which is another story buy solid walls. This may work as far away as 2 or 3 tiles or more.
Anyways why build towers on your side if the wall when you can build on the far side and repair from the safe side. Not bad against melee units huh?

dont forget the infamous Hydarnes bug..

Hmmm...I have been trying to research the bugs lately and found that Mr. Fixit has done a nice job of covering the known bugs.

I see 3 here that I don't know about. First, the "wood" bug. I thought that bug was solved with 1.0b patch? Second and third, what are the "mouse" and "Hydarnes" bugs.

I don't think I saw the "tower" or "repair enemy" bugs listed here. Both are explained well enough at the above link. And there are also the "feature" bugs, which include Palmy retaining free tribute in Full Tech games, Pheo's wood bonus and Astrology yielding faster heal times (I think). Of course, like the "farm" bug, who knows for sure whether the "feature bugs" are actually bugs or were intentional programming.

Only by knowing what the bugs are and how they are accomplished will we be able to know what to look for.

It is quite evident that there are hacks for resources, one-sided cheat-enabled and map view. These are, imho, far more threatening to game balance than any of the "bugs". Although the "house" bug is pretty scary too.

Again, what are the "mouse", "Hydarnes" and "wood" bugs. Could you also explain the procedure too?

Microsoft is supposed to be in charge of making a patch for all the bugs in AoE and RoR. Please hurry MS you are slow fixing the bugs and many new people buy the games.

LOL......LOL.....LOL.....ROFL.....!!!!!!!!! aaaawwww never mind!!!!!!! It's my fault on bringing up this none-existant "mouse bug". You see, I had gone to the topic called: "Bug Cheating Happening Alot In Rated Rooms" and I had quickly skimed thru it & mis-read "house bug" as "mouse bug" ROFL....LOL...LOL.. please oh please forgive me!!!!!!????? there is no such thing as this "mouse bug"!!!!!! .....ROFL

And to you JustAGame, never mind the "Hydarnes bug", Hydarnes is just a forumer who had gottn named that, cuz of some of the tention he started on religious, and racial topics.

And I think to you "Lucifer" that it be best if you don't keep bringing it up, thanx!
You know he hasn't bothered anyone lately anyway.

The 'Dancing Unit Bug' is in fact a real problem in ROR games. It tend to occur when games are played at faster speeds (I've only seen it in speed 2.0 games). Your villagers, or military units (military without slow speed), or even wildlife (lions/gazelles) will get 'stuck' and run around in a tight circle. This is iritating because they drop their task they were assigned to and 'dance'.

A dancing HCat or priest would be kind of funny to see though.
