I would have posted this yesterday, but I actually was busy at work

For those who do not know, the APC (Average Players Clan) is not a serious Clan, but a loose group of forummers who want to play games with people that they have come to know here. You can be a player of ANY skill level, Newbie all the way up to expert. The only rule I guess would be to be gracious in victory and humble in defeat. Basicly, be a good sport and have fun!

If you would like to be part of this group, reply with your Zone name. I'll edit the post so that a Master List will always be at the top.

Kurtiebird had a good idea to add your ICQ # if you have it, and want to post it, of course!

hey why don't you put this list on a web site like Tripod or Xoom or something. It is getting pretty big and it looks like it will out grow the forum soon. Or you could start a community on Excite so people could interact there. The communities are pretty cool.

The thought, starting an APC website, has crossed my mind. Seeing as I'm SOOOOO busy at work, maybe I'll devote some time to it. (where's that damn html book now....)

If/when I get one up and running, I'll post the URL here!

Hey Scarab,

Could you please add Groovy_Tile_Man as an aka to APC_ChubbyHubby?


Turn'em and Burn'em!

I'll team with you. I don't know about teaching you the error of your ways but we can have fun anyway. The write-up afterwards should be interesting at the very least. I have always enjoyed your writing style.


I've always been curious. Did you choose Heliumkid because you work for an Air Products company, you are a party clown that uses helium balloons as props for your gigs, or you have a propensity for getting high?

1.Id gladly help making an APC page. And hopfully your could take one of the seraphs into hostin it on gamestats since,afterall, we are a HGS forumers clan.

2. And since we are a HGS forum clan, why not change the name to HFC(Heavens Forum Clan). Just a suggestion.

P.S. I am also known as APC_Desert From Now on

Since I had to do it anyway, no sense everyone doing it.... BTW, for those who don't know what Potejon is talking about, there is a file called Friends.txt in a folder called c:\Program Files\Microsoft Internet Gaming Zone\Favorites\(your_nick)

I don't know what happens if you have double entries, but I'll find out soon.

Here's the answer: Zone messenger doesn't care if there are doubles! It just doesn't display any multiples.

By the way, Cut-and-paste from this message will give you junk with spaces in front. Just click on the Edit Post button. That window is cut-and-pastable, and not many people can actually save changes. Just hit back after you have grabbed the copy.

For the most recent text list, see post #76 or something like that.

Keep your stick on the ice.

Hey guys! It's Tiger Lily! Add me to this list please! I want to play!
My ICQ # is 33639026. I'm a newbie but I want to learn how to be great at this game and I could use some help!! I don't have RoR, though. Is that going to be a problem??
Also, if someone could explain about the Zone, I would be forever greatful! I went there before but some of the things did'nt make any sense to me. ICQ me if you want so forum space doesn't get wasted with something everybody else seems to understand!

Hi Tiger Lily

Here's what you need to do for the MS Zone.

go to The Microsoft Gaming Zone
click on the Sign Up icon (upper right side of the page, I think). Once you do this, you will need to load in the appropriate plug-ins. After the plug-ins are loaded into you system, you'll need to chose a user name and password. This is easier said than done (about the user name that is ), since there are around two million zone id's.

Once you've done this successfully, you're ready to play! Click on Age of Empires or (when you get Rise of Rome click on it instead!!) and you will have a choice of a number of servers (rooms) to enter. Having never played Age of Empires on-line, I do not know what the names of the AOE rooms are. They should be labeled "Rookie", "Intermidiate", "Expert",..etc...

I personally recommend buying ROR as soon as you can. It blows AOE out of the water!

Also, let us know what your Zone id is so that we can look you up as well as add your id to the APC list!!!

Tiger Lily again!
OK, I went to the Zone, Logged on...APC_Tiger_Lily is my zone name now. But I saw nothing about plug-ins! Also Nothing about Zone Friends. I know I'm an idiot, but I don't get this!! I signed up months ago, under a different name. Maybe I just changed my zone name now? I'm so confused!!
Also, I just ordered RoR from You talked me into it. I'll let you guys know if it has the same rebate offer and how fast it gets here.
But please help me with this Zone thing!!!

I'm drowning in my own confusion!!!!

Where's a knight in shining armor when you need one????

posted 04-16-99 12:09 PM ET (US)     44 / 188       
I think he means the correct version of DirectX and the 1.b patch. The zone will prmpt you to accept any new zone files.

Try to enter or host a game. If you can play and you see a little "cd 1.b" beside your team number in the set-up room you are all set.

If you need the 1.b patch you should be able to find a hyper-link for down loading it on the zone somewhere....its been too long.

I do not work for an Air Products company, though there's certainly an abundance of hot air among our corporate decision-makers. I am a party clown by habit, not by trade, though my props are more solid constructs, which contain fluid, not air (though only briefly). And as for my "propensity for getting high," then I'd have to be NitrousKid, which, though far more accurate, doesn't have the same flair.

Actually, as I mentioned in an earlier thread, it was a name chosen after some other party clown had stolen armagedn (not to mention dozens of other possibilities). For origins, the HeliumKidz was the name of the band that later became XTC. (Perhaps for "clan" purposes, I might go by APC_XTC - that's got some flair, eh?)

Normally I leave my 'shining armor' at home, but today you lucked out.

Since you already had an existing MS Zone id, you didn't need to download the 'Zone' plug-ins. Depending on when you purchased Age of Empires, you may or may not need to download patch 1.0b. (it fixed some bugs)

As far as your Zone Friends question, I'm a bit confused at that as well.

Have you ever had the 'Zone Friends' box pop up on your screen in your previous trips to the Zone? With your new login name, your list should be empty, but the program should still run.

If you haven't had the Zone Friends ever, well..... I'll look into that. You may want to check to see if you have the program in your hard drive, but have disabled it. (it would be in the path that Thorfinn listed below.)

I hope that this helps!

Count me in. My zone id is PendragonWRB.
All I ask is a game at Speed 1.0 with
players who can stick with the settings
they agreed to buy joining the game, and
keep there fingers off the plus key.

I looked everywhere on my HD, Nothing!!
I do appreciate your help explaining things,though. MY HERO!!
I'm going back to the Zone to look around. Maybe I can Find something about installing Zone Friends. I'll let you know.

Um, would you guys accept me as a passive member of APC until I finally find the courage to play on the zone?

Good thing Tiger_Lily asked questions about the zone, this helped reduce my own confusion about it!

But I got another problem: under W95 where I installed AoE and RoR, Dial-Up Networking refuses to work, I always end up w/ a general protection fault or something like that. I can only open normal modem connections in W95, but get no connection to the internet. I do have an NT 4.0 partition where Dial-Up Networking works (obviously, otherwise I wouldn´t be able to post here), BUT I only have Service Pack 1 installed, and RoR requires Service Pack 3. Anybody know whether the service packs are downloadable and what size they are? If they´re too big, I´ll have to wait till next week to get my hands on a CD w/ the service packs (another euphemism for "bug fixes"). Any help is appreciated.

Vixen, I think you had better wait for the CD. Looks like SP2 was 18 megs, and goes way up from there. In addition, SP4 looks like its available only to US and Canada, though I could be wrong... Check out

BTW, Vixen is already taken (assuming its not you) but APC_Vixen is still available... (And I took the liberty of adding you to the list assuming you would go register it.)

Keep your stick on the ice.
