All Roads Lead to Rome

Author File Description

Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
All Roads Lead To Rome Mod

The first and original Rome mod that's been in the making Since the Fall of 2000 (with many long breaks along the way). It's the longest project for AOK ever to be completed, the biggest AOK mod ever, has the most changes ever, and is the first modpack to add entirely "new" units. This modpack is a total conversion of the North European Building Set into a new Greco-Roman Building Set. It replaces the Viking set with a Roman one and the Tueton set with a Greek one. The modpack replaces some sounds, such as the Lion and the Priest. The modpack also includes a language.dll and a language_x1.dll that changes the names of units, and includes an empires2_x1.dat and an empires2_x1_p1.dat that adds extra Eye Candy to the "Roman Ruins". You can install these files using the "ARLTR Extra Files Installer" and you can uninstall these files using the "ARLTR Extra Files Uninstaller". The Installer will create an extra folder called "ARLTRBackup"; please do NOT remove any files in that folder because the Uninstaller will use these to restore you original settings (Otherwise you have to reinstall Age of Kings.).

Please unzip the "All Roads Lead to Rome" to your Age of Empires II folder. All files will then unzip to their proper directories.

Berserk --> Legionnaire
Elite Berserk --> Elite Legionnaire
Longboat --> Trireme
Elite Longboat --> Elite Trireme

You need MPS Lite installed to play the AKX file. Then click the AKS, CD in D: game not running and MPS installs the Mod Pack and starts AoE II.
Joshooarh This is one of my favorite mod packs ever.

tjbyrum1 I downloaded it.

I then opened the ZIP Folder. I double-clicked Install.

It said to Extract or whatever. I extracted all to my AoE: AoK/TC Folder on my Programs and Files menu.

I began playing the AoE: TCE game. I was the VIKINGS fighting the TEUTONS. Nothing changed.

Why does it not work.

All Roads lead to Rome is the first every conversion Mod Pack. it converts the North European Civs into Greek and Roman ones.

The Mod Pack has great graphics. The buildings blend in extremely well with the rest of the game. They look really realistic and will improve your scenarios alot.

The Mod Pack is really useful for a Roman scenario. It has great graphics and makes Romans look really realistic and much much better.

The Mod Pack also comes with a custom scenario which is fun and enjoyable and a Camel Mod pack which changes the Horse and Wild horse into a Camel.

All Roads Lead to Rome is a great Modd Pack and I am not suprised that it took two years to make. it is very very good.

Additional Comments:
A great Mod Pack which is worth the download. It will improve many scenarios.

dementor561 why are people still commenting there should only be about two or three comments
mickvii I put this (my favorite modpack) on my laptop earlier today and ran into an issue. My cursor jumps all over the place and is very 'sticky/choppy' as it moves across the screen.

Tried using touchpad and swapped out my mouse but nothing changed.

AoK usually runs fine, and to open the menu in-game the cursor moves smooth again.

Anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

AirAssault7 Well, first of all let me just say I like this game. However, there are some issues.

1. I tried several times unzipping all the files to the AoE II folder. That didn't work, so instead I copied and pasted them into the folder manually, including the language.dll files.

2. Next, I tried running the ARTLR Extra Files Installer. That too does not work. It says to press any key in the menu once its running in order to continue, but everytime I proceed the installer simply repeats for each file "Access Denied 0 file(s) moved."

3. I ignored this step and tried running the game anyway, and apparently it runs fine. Many of the skins and animations, and units are present. However what is missing are the text changes and possibly the aqueducts.

4. How do I fix the text and how do I fix the ARTLR Extra Files installer???
