Topic Subject:Current state of multiplayer

It's probably been a decade since I've played AOE, but I just set up a Windows 2000 VM and installed Gold Edition on it. It runs really well, and I'd like to try out multiplayer if anyone else is still playing this.

I see some mention of Gameranger and Voobly, but I'm not familiar with those and don't see much documentation here on how to set them up.

Just looking for a basic run down on how to play multiplayer over the internet and where to find other people.

Well, I've never really thought that there would be a need of any documentation, as the clients normally have a pretty straightforward installation procedure and pretty intuitive interface. GameRanger is probably the one I have most experience with, you just install the client, it should detect the game on your drive and you should be good to join games. I'm a bit less familiar with Voobly but I want to remember the process being about the same. I think it has the bigger community of the two as well. Both of them should just launch the game for you once someone opts to do so.

Give it a try, and come back if you run into any problems!

Right. Gameranger and Voobly are free and are pretty straightforward and simple in their process of setting them up and playing AOE:ROR on them.

Here is the Gameranger website:

You just have to click the big button saying "Download Gameranger" to get started.
