This zip file contains the original PER files from Age of Empires: Rise of Rome.
I also added some slightly modified PER files.
PER files tell the computer how to behave on the battlefield, e.g.:
- if soldiers are passive, defensive or aggressive
- if the computer asks for tribute
- if the computer declares war on an ally if that ally attacks him
- if ranged units stand still while they shoot, or if they try to stay out of the reach of melée units
- and many more...
These files also work with Age of Empires: Definitive Edition.
These files are easily accessible in a subfolder for all gamers who have the original Rise of Rome. They are still used by the AoE Definitive Edition but not accessible, and more deeply hidden in the code. A folder for PER files also exists in the Definitive Edition but it looks empty (unless you fill it with your files).
You can look at these copies of the files, learn from them, copy from them, adapt them and use them to create your own PER files in your Age of Empires scenarios.
The original files were created by Ensemble Studios for Rise of Rome. I did not create these files, and I do not own them. The modified files are also based on the Ensemble Studio files.
