Yo, so I installed HD and then WK with the converter. And it works, but both have messed up fonts that make it impossible to see more than one entry in any dropbox, like the resolutions have only 1 entry and you have to use up-down to navigate. Plus all the menus look broken because the text size is all wrong.

Funnily enough I put a pirated HD on the same rig, and it works fine. Geez...pay for broken stuff, or steal and get a perfectly working copy. What a choice!

I am googling and searching steam forums, but no luck yet. Maybe I will try pushing the pirated font and language files into the legit copy but I doubt that is going to work...

I found this post from 2013 which might work:
Copy the AoE2 fonts ind the Windows fonts folder
Hard Disk:/Data path/Age of Empires 2 HD/data/fonts/*all files*
copy in to the following windows folder
Hard Disk:/Windows/fonts (unter Win 7 64bit)

Reboot Windows.
I had the same problems and it works
I will try it later and report back. But its pretty old advice...

Yeah so that did nothing.

Back to trawling the steam forums and poking around in my steam config hoping something changes, I guess.

EDIT:So HD is working fine but only WololoKingdoms is broken



Its like that everywhere, the units tab in the editor or when choosing civs in a RM

It's because the language files shipped with the compatibilty patch are broken.

Download the english files here: https://www.aoezone.net/threads/aoc-language-files.32232/
Replace the ones in the Age2HD folder, then run the WK installer again and it should work.

Woohoo! It works!

Was pretty sure when the jineapple responded the problem would be soon eradicated. Thanks
