I'm not sure if there are many long termers here (by long termers I mean original Age of Empires 2 fans who were around with its inception) but the game actually had different graphics to what you see in the final game. This version was scrapped, and to be honest with you I find the original graphics quite appealing. I will try and find the original magazine pictures and scan if for you.

Anybody already tried to save a scenario with a mapsize greater than 255?

I answered the question about maps > 255x255 before. It's *really* beyond the abilities of the user patch. The code has to be recompiled, and some significant changes made. The propagation effect of displacing offsets and such is massive in terms of the final .exe produced. That is what was done back at ES for the 400x400 test

Short answer is NO, can't be done with the existing retail releases.

256x256 is largest possible now

That was part of the alpha/early beta versions, there is no such tool available seperately as far as I know.

Wouldn't it be possible to remake it as a separate program?

I think an event is registered if in a time period your troops get a certain amount kills and razings relative to the total size of your civ

I'm real happy with how CS:GO turned out.

Valve is just the one of the very best developers to work for or with. We never worried that it would go out before it was ready.

One thing I don't really like is AoK's cliff graphics - they are the same as AoE's, but it's like someone put a magnifying glass on it lol. Why wasn't this changed to a more detailed look?

Lol. That's because they *ARE* the AoE cliffs, zoomed up 50%.

The cliff graphics were literally 'forgotten' about until the last minute - basically when it was too late to redo them properly - in the mad crunch to get AOK shipped back in 1999. I guess the Art team never made updating them a priority in the patches.

They still look better than the ones in SWGB . IMO

Well Matt, out of curiosities sake, what did you and the team think of civilization and alpha centauri? Was there any inspiration from them?

Like I said before Zen's screw up the server backup, I'm fairly sure the mockups over at AoEBeta seem to confirm that.

Patience, patience, patience.

Does it really take that long to develop a tablet/browser version of AoC?

I hope it will also be made to x86 Windows (and maybe as 64 bit) rather than just ARM based tablets.

So browser it is? I'm just making fun and wild guesses. But I think it wouldn't be too far off and awesome indeed.

Now that I would like to call Age of Empires/Kings Online. On the other hand, you would still face downtime and patching, obviously... which could be done fast since the genie games aren't that big, I guess.

But only if it supports FF and Chrome and isn't IE only.
