(c) Microsoft Corporation, 1998
Microsoft Age of Empires 1.0b is an upgrade of Age of Empires
includes several enhancements and bug fixes.
If you are playing a multiplayer game, all players must be
same version of Age of Empires.
If you are playing a saved game, it must be from the same
Age of Empires you currently have installed. For example,
save a game using version 1.0b, then revert to version 1.0
and play the
game saved in version 1.0b.
Microsoft Age of Empires 1.0b includes the following changes:
Population Limits -- If you are playing a multiplayer game, the
host can increase or decrease the 50-unit population limit
the Limit= parameter to the Age of Empires command line. For
information about this feature, see "Changing the Population
later in this Readme file.
Stand Ground -- The Stand Ground button prevents Stone
Catapults, Heavy Catapults, Catapult Triremes, and
firing. For all other units, the Stand Ground button causes
the unit to
remain in its location and fire at military units, boats,
and walls within its range.
Attack Response -- When a unit is attacked, all units and
within two tiles of the unit under attack respond, even if
unit is out of their sight. Villagers that have been
assigned a task but
are no longer working now react to attacks.

more resources than they originally cost if you press the
several times during high latency.

Tool Age or
Stone Age and then quickly build several new ones during
Way Points -- Villagers no longer complete tasks at a way point
is not at a work site. The way point or villager must be at
work site (fishing spot, building site, etc.) before they
For example, you can no longer use way points to construct a
on the other side of a wall.
Group Movement -- Grouped units no longer stop when they bump
each other. Also, movement has been improved so a group of
move through narrow passages more efficiently.
Pathing Options -- There is now an option to choose how many
possibilities your units calculate when moving a long
the map. The higher the pathing setting, the more paths a
considers. Higher values also require faster computers. To
unit pathing in a single player or multiplayer game, click
button before you start the game. Or, from within the game,
Menu button, and then click Game Settings.
NOTE: This feature is primarily designed to improve pathing
on high-end computers. The problems listed under Group
significantly improve pathing, so you might want to get a
feel for these
improvements before you change the pathing settings.
Difficulty Level -- The difficulty level is restored if you
campaign game, exit to Windows, and then restart the game.
Town Centers -- If your Town Center is destroyed before the
Age, you can no longer use the SHIFT key to build multiple

potential number of concurrent units in an 8-player game is

If you are playing a multiplayer game, the game host can
decrease the 50-unit population limit by adding the Limit=
