Widescreen Resolution

Author File Description
XtrM
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
* I am not the maker of this file, I merely used it a while back to play AOE2:TC full screen on my widescreen laptop - I take no credit for this file, I am simply sharing it with the community *

This file will enable you to play AOE2:TC at the same resolution as your desktop.

Steps to Install:
1. Download and extract, AoE2WideSetup.

2. Make sure the game is not running and click on the AoE2WideSetup.exe to install it in the game folder (it will make it's own AoE2Wide folder in the game).

3. Now it will form a bat file on your desktop. Before you run this file make sure the game is not running and your desktop has the desired resolution.

4. Now run the bat file and it will make another file with your resolution at the end of its name ( for me the file name was AoC1.0e 1680x945 )

5. Now run the AoC1.0e 1680x945 file ( for your it will be your screen resolution in place of 1680*945). It will run AOE2:TC in its normal setting but once the match starts resolution changes to your desktop resolution :)

Some known issues: While watching a recorded game if you make the speed fastest the game may hide the menu ( where you can play, forward etc ). This can be resolved by clicking on any tabs at the top left (diplomacy, settings etc), as it will pause the game and menu will appear.

Again, I take no credit for this file, I don't know the original author of this file otherwise I would have mentioned him/her.
Enjoy :)

Keisari Tapsa The latest UserPatch does the same thing.

For some reason I was unable to install userpatch ( Yes I read the Readme file ). I kept getting the "file not found error" even after I had copied the wndmode.dll in the required directory. I don't know how to install the "Window library support" feature and my game folder is in c:\downloads\AOE2, I had copied the setup to this directory.

Any help will be greatly appreciated :)
Basse This works great! Good job! To bad you didn't implement it to the original .exe so we could use it on GR or Voobly.
Keisari Tapsa Doesn't Voobly have wide-screen fix? And VEG's windowed mod with wide-screen patch works greatly for GameRanger.
Basse Voobly have wide-screen for gold users only because it makes a whole in their anti-cheat.
Infinite_Breath Everytime I run the patch I get the below failure:

Was this patch meant for only a certain version of AoEII-C expansion?

swens0n, you can check your file version by clicking the banner in the main menu. If I understand correctly, this file should work with any of the legitimate versions of the game. In case you happen not to own a legit version, I advise you to buy one as we do not allow any discussion of illegal warez on Age of Kings Heaven.

swens0n I got the CD, and i think it´s the 1.0C version

there has been a lot of water under the bridge since i started play this game 10 years ago to get it work ,different versions and patches depending on single/mod or multiplayer. Windows 7 issues etc...


On this computer i think ´ll have to re-install the entire Game. And someone please tell me what to do properly, the right patch to use & correct procedure ?

.Maybe it´s default folder gotta be MicrosoftGames/Aoe2? The desired resolution I use are 1920x1080 i belive...
swens0n someone answer my question!?


Tell me how to install the game again, and how to use the right "Patch" and finaly setup for widescreen. I have no clue.

the patch = the executable file right? like Age2_x1

and then hopefully this widescreenSetup fix the rest? it´s Nivida graphic Card
