All Roads Lead to Rome

Author File Description

File Details
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 Mod.zip" to your Age of Empires II folder. All files will then unzip to their proper directories.

I'm not sure, but it might be the fact that you have installed the game in a different directory than the default one (which is C:/program files/...), and maybe the custom installer is checking for that location.
Dragon Conqueror Okay, this is a great mod, but my computer has issues with it.

So, I installed it, and then played it.(lol) After I played it, I turned it off. I decided to play it again, and it crashed, and I had to reinstall Age of Kings and The Conquerors. It did this three more times, and the same thing happened. Any Help?

The Dragon Conqueror
Dragon Conqueror Don't get me wrong, this is great, and I really want to have it.
The Vampire Slayer At this point, it might be a good idea for someone to extract the DRS files and create a new mod with the Ykkrosh/Mace Advanced ModPack Studio. This is over a decade old and I no longer have any of the original files.

If my memory is correct, someone can install this mod and use the DRS Viewer to save the DRS files (image frames for a unit).

You have my consent to use any of the art for your own modpacks or whatever. (Would be nice to see some of this art in a genie mod as an added CIV!)
