Lately CeaseDaFire was able to contact Tony Goodman, the old Head of Ensemble Studios and Robot Entertainment.

After a grueling 2.5 months or so waiting, TG was able to get back to him.

This could be the Alpha/Beta's Salvation from the darkness (But I doubt it) However the old AoE1 Alpha (Dawn of Man) was on found by TG.

Two years on from the MP Alpha and Marketing Alpha and Back to the Beta, another big jump in Alpha/Beta Content.

I know Phatfish will be happy about Dawn of Man, and probably jealous why he doesn't have it in his private collection, kek.

I wouldn't say I'm jealous, but you certainly caught my interest. Care to elaborate a little further? I can't open the thread on AoMH either.

Well I have to say this is indeed interesting but like the others have pointed out, the thread is unreachable. I hope it wasn't deleted for breaking the rules!

Just to be clear, it is this build we are talking about, right?


And Tony actually shipped the build on it's original 3,5 inch floppy to you? What are the other items? Now I am getting jealous

"Floppy" was a word used.

Just opened the package...

And it was ALOT more than I was expecting. I think many of you would find these things extremely interesting.

Stay tuned for the prize.

Out of politeness I've asked him about sharing some of the files. I suppose I could at least share some pics but I'll give it one more day. He was very generous with me.

Here's what was sent to me:

I was not expecting all of this. This is what the founder of Ensemble Studios sent me, and I am extremely humbled.

Three discs were blacked out because of confidentiality reasons. Until I get the OK from Tony, I won't be revealing these. They're AoM related anyway.

I've only begun to load a few in my computer, unfortunately it doesn't have a floppy drive. I have one on an older pc but it's not set up. I'll probably just head to my local library and load them up there.

And I assume the hats are for me to keep

Feel free to speculate and ask about certain cd's. For now, I'll just be describing them.

Amazing. You should sincerely thank Mr. Goodman. What an awesome guy!

One of the burning questions I have is did you ask him to share these dev versions or did he offer them to you? I suspect the former? What other information did he share with you?

A thing that I immediately noticed is that there are no "printed" official dev versions (unless the AoM ones that are blacked out are...). Maybe some of them are actually the "master discs", which in itself is extremely rare to own.

Looking at the dates of the AoE CD's, there is at least one late alpha build which I assume is the same that was leaked (and known to us). Then the other two from July, I think that these are possibly from the E3. The last one from september is probably the one used for the public beta test. The behind the scenes disc should prove to be very interesting too. I would love to see the 3D studio max renders on that disc which has Sean duncan written on it. Looking at the date these are def the earliest type of buildings in the history of Age.

I own an official AoK press kit - my guess is that most of the items on the AoE one where used to create the official MS AoE sites and are likely to feature late alpha screenshots too. I'm curious about the AoK cd's too.

And from the looks of it, you could have two Dawn of Man builds in your possession there. Be careful when handling anything.

Looking forward to hearing and seeing more from this amazing collection!

I'm intrigued by the CD labelled "Tribe Music". People may remember me from that really long thread about the game's music and the difference between the Redbook Audio and MIDI versions.

Can you please listen to that CD and check if there is any 'new' (i.e. old and unreleased) music on there?
