I received an Important e-mail from the ensemble studios!
They notefied me, that they didnt saved the early pre-release versions of this game

They pointed me to peple who may still have it such as Bruce Shelley, Archangel, (or AoERat/Agamemnon!)
Meanwhile i realized the every day that will pass will make it harder to find an older pre-release version than the russian one!

I alert all people to begin the search.

I have here a little present for you all.
Because some of you helped me before with finding some great old screenshots, I managed to extract a house graphic from it (see below)
http://taichi.quotaless.com/downloads/betaao2/house3we.gif (I changed the Image to a Direct URL link)

ATTENTION:
> Everyone possible owner or someone who found beta stuff please report to me (you too: agamemnon and phatfish )

BTW you may use the submitte image for your own mods, thanks to me, it can finally be used as a slp

I remember that there used to be this huge thread that a guy made that had a bunch of stuff from the old Beta version of AoE II. Unfortunately I forget the guy's names, and the name of the thread. If I find it, I'll let you know.

Anyways, good luck with the search.

You (Dantares) also made a good impression with your campaigns. So many hours, wrestling with idea's. Playtested tons and tons of other work of other people.

In this day and age we can't find free web hosting?

Ahhh, I DO remember the day when a free hotlink was HARD to find. We used to go to all sorts of crazy measures just to get one image displayed here on these forums...

Wow, how things have changed. These days my photography business has over 20 gigs of photos online and burns 10-20 gigs of bandwidth per month. Of course, I have unlimited storage and a PB of bandwidth per month... (yes I said PB) It costs $100 a year, but 5 years ago $100 would have barely bought a month of storage / traffic of that magnitude... (BTW I often offer to host high-bandwidth images for fellow designers, like full-resolution mapshots etc... )

But, I digress. I'm interested in seeing what this new beta unit is!

hello guys

For a note: I am that beta dude (Ancient Warrior)
Strange man, currently I am seeing the image of this house in front of me, and it works, strange.
I think, I forgot to set the correct permissions to the image file.
OK, I must fix that.


Meanwhile I builded up a quite huge collection of alpha/abeta matherials.
You can contact me on the0bald@hotmail.com on msn, if you are interrested to get the whole picture collection (its around 83MB now).

I have meanwhile found 2 betas.
The russian one, 00.09.07.0222 from shadowflare, meanwhile I got a patch to get it to work, and all files are english now.
and I got a 00.11.13.0768 Beta, this one is newer, but contains cool bonus functions such as a sprite viewer and combat tester.

Currently I searching contact with AoERat/Agamemnon Yea, he uses 2 names.
But I have some prooves that he posesses an older beta version:
> Some time ago, he submitted some alpha graphics as modpacks to the blacksmith, to take the early alpha castle as a example. This castle wasnt possible to be extracted from images, because there were simply none of them that shows the castle in complete form .
> Evidence 2: I searched the webarchive.org page, and stumbled on an older page with AoERat (agamemnon) saying the following:
Yess! I have the Age of Kings Beta! Where can i upload it? He wrote no further messages after that one .

But this gives a pretty convinced feeling.

Ah! I see. Well, I hope you do better with this link than you did with the other thread. ;0

Finding old graphics is fine, but I'd rather make buildings to order! They're the easiest graphics to do.

...

And, by that I mean, describe a building to me, give me two days, and I'll post my model of it. Modpacks/expansions are BETTER when you make them from scratch!
