Microsoft Age of Empires 1.0b Readme File
April 1998
(c) Microsoft Corporation, 1998

Microsoft Age of Empires 1.0b is an upgrade of Age of Empires
1.0 that
includes several enhancements and bug fixes.

Version Compatibility:

If you are playing a multiplayer game, all players must be
using the
same version of Age of Empires.

If you are playing a saved game, it must be from the same
version of
Age of Empires you currently have installed. For example,
you cannot
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:

Enhancements:

Population Limits -- If you are playing a multiplayer game, the
game
host can increase or decrease the 50-unit population limit
by adding
the Limit= parameter to the Age of Empires command line. For
more
information about this feature, see "Changing the Population
Limit"
later in this Readme file.

Stand Ground -- The Stand Ground button prevents Stone
Throwers,
Catapults, Heavy Catapults, Catapult Triremes, and
Juggernaughts from
firing. For all other units, the Stand Ground button causes
the unit to
remain in its location and fire at military units, boats,
buildings,
and walls within its range.

Attack Response -- When a unit is attacked, all units and
allied units
within two tiles of the unit under attack respond, even if
the attacking
unit is out of their sight. Villagers that have been
assigned a task but
are no longer working now react to attacks.

Bug Fixes:

Infinite Resources During High Latency -- Buildings no longer
return
more resources than they originally cost if you press the
DELETE key
several times during high latency.

Multiple Town Centers During High Latency -- You can no longer
build
multiple Town Centers if you delete your Town Center in the
Tool Age or
Stone Age and then quickly build several new ones during
high latency.

Way Points -- Villagers no longer complete tasks at a way point
that
is not at a work site. The way point or villager must be at
the actual
work site (fishing spot, building site, etc.) before they
can work.
For example, you can no longer use way points to construct a
building
on the other side of a wall.

Group Movement -- Grouped units no longer stop when they bump
into
each other. Also, movement has been improved so a group of
units can
move through narrow passages more efficiently.

Pathing Options -- There is now an option to choose how many
pathing
possibilities your units calculate when moving a long
distance across
the map. The higher the pathing setting, the more paths a
unit
considers. Higher values also require faster computers. To
change the
unit pathing in a single player or multiplayer game, click
the Settings
button before you start the game. Or, from within the game,
click the
Menu button, and then click Game Settings.

NOTE: This feature is primarily designed to improve pathing
performance
on high-end computers. The problems listed under Group
Movement (above)
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
save a
campaign game, exit to Windows, and then restart the game.

Town Centers -- If your Town Center is destroyed before the
Bronze
Age, you can no longer use the SHIFT key to build multiple
Town Centers
until you advance to the Bronze Age and build a Government
Center.

Multiplayer Games -- Several fixes were made to increase the
stability
of multiplayer games. Players are dropped from games less
often.

Allied Transport Loading and Boat Repair -- In order to use
allied
transports and repair allied boats, both players must set
diplomacy to
Ally (click the Menu button, and then click Diplomacy). You
can no
longer attack enemy boats by selecting the player as an
ally, luring
the boat to shore to repair or load units onto it, and then
changing
the diplomacy setting to enemy so you can attack.

Changing the Population Limit:

NOTE: Changing the default population limit is not recommended
or
supported.

Increasing the population limit decreases game performance. For
example,
with a 50-unit population limit, the potential number of
concurrent units
in an 8-player game is 400. With a 200-unit population limit,
the
potential number of concurrent units in an 8-player game is
1600. This
increase in the number of units can seriously degrade overall
game
performance.

If you are playing a multiplayer game, the game host can
increase or
decrease the 50-unit population limit by adding the Limit=
parameter
to the Age of Empires command line. If you are playing a
multiplayer
game through Microsoft's MSN Gaming Zone, the game host must
also
add the Limit= parameter to the Age of Empires registry.
Players can
check the population limit of a multiplayer game by looking
for the
Population Limit setting that appears in the Settings list
after they
join a game.

To add the Limit= parameter to the command line in the Age
of Empires
shortcut

1. In Windows 95, click the Start button, point to Settings,
click
Taskbar, click Start Menu Programs, click Advanced, and
then double-
click Programs.

-or-

In Windows NT, right-click the Start button, select Open
All Users,
and then double-click Programs.

2. Double-click Microsoft Games, and then double-click Age
of Empires.

3. Right-click the Age of Empires shortcut, click
Properties, and then
click Shortcut.

4. In the Target text box, type Limit=x after the existing
command
line text. Type the population limit instead of the
letter "x." For
example, to set the population limit to 65, type
Limit=65. You can
type any number from 25 to 200. The default setting is
50. Parameters
must be separated by a space; capitalization is not
important.

To add the Limit= parameter to the Age of Empires registry
for
multiplayer games using MSN Gaming Zone

1. Click the Start button, and then click Run.

2. Type Regedit, and then click OK.

3. Double-click
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectPlay\
Applications\Age of Empires\CommandLine.

4. In the Value data text box, type Limit=x after the
existing command
line text. Do not remove the word "lobby" from the
command line.
Type the population limit instead of the letter "x." For
example,
to set the population limit to 65, type Limit=65. You can
type any
number from 25 to 200. The default setting is 50.
Parameters must
be separated by a space; capitalization is not important.

Uninstalling Age of Empires version 1.0b:

To uninstall Age of Empires 1.0b and restore version 1.0

1. Go to Program Files/Microsoft Games/Age of Empires (or
where you
installed Age of Empires), and then delete the files
Empires.exe
and Language.dll.

2. Install version 1.0 from the Age of Empires disc.
