age of emires : Rise of Rome
Age of Empires is an epic real-time strategy game spanning 10,000 years, in which players are the guiding spirit in the evolution of small stone age tribes. Starting with minimal resources, players are challenged to build their tribes into great civilizations.
Gamers can choose from one of several ways to win the game, including: world domination by conquering enemy civilizations, exploration of the known world and economic victory through the accumulation of wealth. Age of Empires was developed by Ensemble Studios and features the expertise of Bruce Shelley, co-designer of the hit strategy game Civilization.
This is a custom rip done by myself, the movies are gone and replaced with 1 frame clips, the help files are gone also. This is pre-cracked to save on space but that is not an issue, any of the patches available for this do not check the files. I highly suggest 7-Zip is used to decompress this. I almost forgot, this game uses CD-Audio for the music tracks, as this is a rip, they aren't there, the CD-Audio causes annoying pauses whenever the track is changed anyway. However it also has midi tracks that are used.
Note on Hamachi playing: me and friends and various other people have had a lot of trouble getting this game to work over hamachi, I believe it's to do with having more than one network adapter enabled. You need to disable windows firewall and pretty much any firewall to get this game working. Now when you do that sometimes even then it won't work. If anyone ever comes up with a solution, I'd love to hear it.
This game works flawlessly using gameranger for multiplayer.
