This is a program for editing data of genie (DAT and DLL) files. It can edit properties of units, civilizations, technologies, graphics, terrains, sounds, player colors and some other things.

Please, ask questions on the forums.

Check out this program also. It's for graphical modding.

For editing language files in The Conquerors,
I recommend this download.

The Advanced Genie Editor 2, or AGE 2, is a fantastic tool for modding that combines the availabilty and practical interface of the older GeniEd programmes, with the vast options that the previous AGE gave us. It is also a lot more stable than its predecessor; I have yet to experience a single crash, whereas the old AGE crashed every oither time I tried to close it down.

AGE 2 is a very powerful tool that allows you to add new units, graphics, sounds, researches and even ages, and to modify pretty much everything in the entire game. The only limitations I have come across are limits presented by hard-coded features o the game, for example, that you can't add all new civilizations. Other than that, AGE 2 is a complete, wonderful tool that allows you to do almost anything you want to the game.

Needless to say, AGE 2 is a tool that every modder should have in his or her arsenal. Combined with SLP Editor and DRSExplorer, modding the entire game has never been more simple.

This is my now preferable program to edit age of empires with, It is very much so easier to understand with tool tips and a reference to Genie wiki I'll be looking forward to the coming versions.

For looks and for ease of use, for tool tips, more descriptive and understandable fields (even for a newbie).

Easily the best modding tool for AoE there is. Everything that's related to each other is stored in the same place so you don't have to look around the whole program to find something to edit. Can edit multiple items at the same time, making multiple Train Time edits, for example, easier to be set at the same value.

And there is much more that this tool has to offer.

Quality/Instructions: 5
Instructions are to the point and the quality of the product is outstanding.

Additional Comments:

Definitely recommend it. It's a must-have for anyone who would like to create a mod for the game, or just experiment around with the engine. :)

The Advanced Genie Editor is the definitive tool for all Age of Empires modders. Age of Empires is based on the Genie Game Engine, hence the name Genie Editor. There have been several Genie editors over the years, each updating and improving in the previous, but the Advanced Genie Editor 3 by Keisari Tapsa is the most equipped and greatest of them all.

The Advanced Genie Editor ( otherwise known as AGE) provides modders with the ability to edit the games core data files (empires_p1_x1.dat) as well as also providing capabilities to edit language files and drs graphics files. All of this provides modders with infinite tools to create a whole new gaming experience for AOK. In fact one could argue that AGE could slow you to create an entirely new game based on the Genie Engine.

AGE has a very user friendly interface and once you’ve played around with it for a little bit of fine it can become very easy to use. It gives you the capacity to add new unit, chance terrains, graphics, and interfaces, as well as add new technologies, sounds and completely mess about with most of the game mechanics that aren’t hard coded into the software. For a new modder it will take a bit of getting used to but there are plenty of tutorials and friendly faces in the forums who can help you figure it all out.

Overall AGE is the most helpful tool any modder could wish for. The capabilities are endless and it allows us to turn our beloved game into something even more unique and enjoyable. This version of AGE is absolutely flawless and I’ve never discovered any bugs in the program. It is constantly being updated by Keisari Tapsa, and to date was last updated in early 2019.

I would highly recommend everyone downloaded this and gave it a go.

Thanks
Possidon
