ephestion Why did you save the AOE scenarios in ROR format? I am using the Revisited patch and wanted to include fun scenarios with the new release of the mod. However, they need to be in AOE scn format.

I used the Campaign Manager to pry the campaign files into separate scenarios, which i then edited in-game. Because i was using ROR to do the edits, it saved them as .SCX files. So i can't really do anything about that :/
rakovsky The Instructions says that for Gameranger:
"Make sure that your friend is always the bottom player in the lobby and the last in the numerical/color value. It's not enough that the friend only picks the appropriate color, since the game assigns the "stats" according to the lobby position (Starting age, resources, etc.). It can be done (at least in Gameranger) by kicking your friend after launching the game by assigning an AI player over them. (you'll be prompted to kick them) Set the rest of the AI according to the scenario, and invite your friend back in when you're done."
However, on Voobly this is not a problem. If I am Player 1 and choose Yellow (3), then I become Player 3 in the game with Player 3's resources.

In Voobly and Gameranger you need to set the Players' Civilizations to match those that the Scenario Editor has them set to, as below. My Comments:

Players: 1. Octavian (Roman Human) & 5. (Roman Human Ally) vs. AI Players: #2 Roman, #3 Egyptian, #4 Egyptian
I Beat it on Hard with my Ally Frostydonkey as Player 5 on Gameranger with the Players' Civilizations set correctly)

Year of the Four Emperors
Players: #1 Roman. & #5 Roman. (Human Players) v.
# 2 Greek, # 3 Palmyran, #4 Macedonian.
I beat it on Moderate with my Ally Swiftblaster. It should be made clear in the instructions that:
1. The Blue Player must be the one who places their Colosseum where the enemy Wonder was. It does not count if your Orange Human Ally puts a Colosseum there.
2. You must also destroy all three enemies. This is because the Orange Player has no Victory Condition set, so his VCs default to the Standard Victory Condition or Conquest.
