anyone know if you can change the pop limit in AoE DE or you would need a tool similar to the awesome RoR population limit changer?

also i heard the Advanced Genie Editor 2018 is "Adjusted" for AoE DE, anybody know if that means they cracked that supposedly encrypted empires.dat so that you can modify civilizations and/or units?

just asking these because trying to determine if i should even bother with AoE DE

Modding AoE: DE isn't all that feasible yet. We're able to view all the files from the game after doing a memory dump, but as far as I know no one can replace the game files locked away in the installation folder. It's best to wait and see if Microsoft ever releases the game on another platform like Steam with workshop support.

I hope M$ opens the eyes and: 1- allows the game to be sold on steam and 2- allows access to moddable files. I fear this game will be fully dead soon if that does not happen.

Hi guys,
I have the AOEE on Microsoft Store and I need to extract the .slp files for the Bowman, Improved Bowman, Composite Bowman and Slinger. But the Microsoft Store build of the game seems to lock all the slp files and prevent them from being opened or even viewed in any slp editor, i.e. like SLX Studio or such.
Could anyone advise me on this? I am trying to mod the four units above but I would need to first get access to the .slp files. Perhaps someone has the required slps on their Steam build of the game and could share them with me?

General rule of thumb, don't buy the windows store version of games that you want to mod. Only the steam version of AoE1 DE is possible to mod at the moment, and you have to replace files directly in the installation folder since there is no mod support with some sort of override folder.

If you just wanted access to all the SLPs and other resources, you could do a memory dump of the game.

Population limits meaningless ... as long as you have the resources ... pummel people with attacks ...
