- Backup empiresx.exe, just in case ;)

- Windows XP, 7 or later (may work with linux using wine+winetricks, but not guaranteed)
- Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable libraries 2013
-- If not working: For Windows 10 you can try this link (from Microsoft too) : update for visual 2013 redist
-- For Windows 10 you can try installing this all-in-one installer instead (THANK YOU PhatFish).
- Rise of Rome expansion !
- Windows 10 users : If you experiment issues (e.g. RockNRor plugin does not seem to work well), run the game in compatibility mode (XP, or Win7)
-- To check is RockNRor is active, select a unit in-game and press F2 key. If a popup shows up, then RockNRor is active.

- Developed for Rise of Rome 1.0a. Some features are compatible with AOE 1.0b, 1.0c and ROR 1.0.
- RockNRorAdmin.Exe can install RockNRor plugin and change resolution (including copying necessary files) for you
- Strong consistency checks : program will warn you if something went wrong, and before doing any harm
- Strong consistency checks : if you try to use it with other files than original empiresx.exe, you probably will encounter an check error.

See forum topic.

* 1920*1200 interfac.drs files if you choose that resolution.
* 1920*1080 interfac.drs files if you choose that resolution.
* 1280*1024 interfac.drs files if you choose that resolution.

To change resolution: extract the interfac.drs archive you chose above, then use RockNRorAdmin's menu to change resolution and select the data/data2 DRS files when asked for.

This program works with the good old "Rise of Rome" version (1.0b and 1.0c). It's compatible with collector's edition (because it is almost the same file).
For other editions or other game (AOE2, etc), it is not compatible.

@Kivan: yes, with "advanced" views you can do what you want.
If you enable ROR_API and windowed mode options you won't need the CD.
Otherwise you can have a look in "tech fixes" advanced view.
myronveri Doesn't work. When try to open unzipped file sais msvcp120.dll is missing from your computer.

GiantTalos Will this be made compatible with UPatch HD?
File Author
Upatch seems to use a custom game executable (maybe self-patching, I don't even know), which makes impossible to guarantee a compatibility with any other mod that uses custom code.

ROR_API does nothing but provide a simple API to use "entry points" at any location in game code. More than 1 mod can use the same entry point.

CustomROR is just a plugin that uses ROR_API. My work does not modify/add any executable code in game EXE (except old obsolete work, part of it being used by UPatch)

For UPatch HD to be cumulative with customROR, it is UPatch that needs to be based on ROR_API, not the contrary.
Then compatibility with customROR should be automatic without any change on both sides.

There is nothing I can do on my side, except provide documentation (which I did a long time ago - yet I admit it is a bit light) and provide support if anyone has questions to use ROR_API.

try to use a clean ROR installation
Chab I can't seem to run this anymore because of Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable libraries 2013 not being compatible with windows 10 x64 architecture.

Is there any way to fix this?
volume what does this file do exactly?

does it edit technology trees or what units a civilization can have?
