Language.dll Bundle

Author File Description

An expantion to this bundle is in the works right now so you can play RoR and still have the units like in the Kings Language.dll.

A language.dll bundle is actually a quite nice idea. This pack includes edited language.dll files, all of them edit a different aspect of the game text. There's one which changes all units with 'bowman' in their name to 'archer'. Another one which changes the fish and bird names is also included. The two most useful might be the kings language and tax language files. The first one changes all horsed hero units to king -insert name here-, for example King Alexander. It also renames cavalry to knight, heavy cav to loyal knight and cataphract to sir knight. Horse Archers are renamed to thiefs, villagers are slaves. The tax language file changes all tribute messages, which is kinda useful. There's also a random language file, the readme says that I had to check it out myself to see what it does. Well, I played around and tried many units, but the only thing I noticed was that clubman was changed to n00bman. That's kinda funny, but I awaited a bit more. Apart from those files there's also a backup of the original language file available. That, only in English though, so players who don't live in England or America should save thier original file. Also included is the cygnus hex editor, so you can do language.dlls yourself. That editor is not from the author, but nice that it is included.

Additional Comments:

A nice utility with some cool edited language files. Some are pretty useless, while others are very cool. 4 stars.

Download Reccommendation: Decide for yourself.


The file got re-uploaded and now has some more content, but not much has changed. The kings file does now have changed computer messages aswell and there's a manual included which tells you how to install dll files, but that's all. That's still very nice, but not enough to change it to a 4.5

For people who would like to fool around with their AOE it's still a must-download.


I've just seen I missed quiet a few changes on the Random language.dll file. It does a lot of funky stuff, like remaining Alexander to "whats-his-face" or changing one of the priest heroes to "Crazy Old Man". Elephant has become "Thing", and so on.

I found that pretty cool (Your objective: Bring Hero Whats-his-face to the double pole flags!) and I guess it's enough to give an extra 0.5 points. ;)

Have fun.

The random.dll also has edited messages as well.
