I had to re-install Age of Empires because I had a Windows crash. Now I have lost my 'history', the list of scenarios in the campaigns I had already played.
I still have the previous Age of Empires files on a backup disk. Can I put my history back?
I thought it had to do with the 'learn' directory, but it doesn't help to put my old files back there. Does anyone no how I can regain my history?

Fraid not. If the folder was removed when you reinstalled that's it.

Interesting question though - you can save your savegame folder and your learn folder somewhere safe before uninstall, but where does it keep details about your progress in campaigns?

IIRC that information is stored in the game0 file. If you can restore that one maybe you're set. If not, you'll have to use a cheat code to win all scenarios you have already completed.

I would suggest home running to the point you were up to.

I'm with Lorenzo on this one (done it many times): just use the "Home Run" cheat in all the camapaign scenarios that you have completed before until you reach the first one you want to play. Takes no longer than a few minutes and it's a no-hassle reusable solution. If you reinstall again, this will do the trick every time.

Wise_Max is the slowest player on Earth.
But Wise_Max has a lot of fun playing. So, he always wins even when he loses the game. And he made Friends.
Is that Wise or what?...
