(Benutzung auf eigene Gefahr!) beheben soll: Der Patch bringt neue Maps, optimiert einige Gameplay-Features und behebt eine Reihe an Bugs. Mehr dazu auf der nächsten Seite...Download
Beta-Patch für AoE2: The Conquerors (2,4 MB)
Beta Patch zu Age of Empires 2: The Conquerors
Da es sich um eine Beta-Version handelt, gibt es weder technischen Support, noch eine Garantie seitens Microsoft
. Die Benutzung erfolgt zwar auf eigene Gefahr, aber nach der Installation gibt es zwei Shortcuts
auf Eurem Desktop, die es Euch freistellen, die alte oder die gepatchte Version zu starten. Lokalisiert ist diese Version nicht, also dürfte der ein oder andere englische Text nach Installation auftauchen.
Hier der offizielle Readme-Text mit allen Verbesserungen, Bugfixes und Neuigkeiten:
This beta contains numerous bug fixes & play balance changes. Some of the more obscure bug fixes are not listed here. To speed the release of the patch, this beta does NOT incorporate language localization. If you install the patch over a non-English-language version of Age of Kings, then some phrases and descriptions may appear in English.
PLAY BALANCE & ADJUSTMENTSOpen ground is always green on the minimap, even on snow or sand terrain.Black Forest no longer turns up if you select Random Map or Land Random.Farms can be queued to 40.Fish traps now provide food at a faster rate, about equal to shore fish.All archery range units (except hand-cannoneers) now do 1 additional damage to spearman-line units.Camels are now as quick to train as spearmen.Viking Berserks now move as fast as pikemen.Celtic Woad Raiders now move faster (they run faster than Eagle Warriors who lack Squires).Bombard Cannons do 80 additional damage to buildings. New Multiplayer-only map type "Blind Random". This selects randomly between a number of different map types, and you are not told what kind of map you are playing on.Aztecs now get free LoomCastles now take 200 build points to construct instead of 150.Custom Random Maps
New ES Custom Maps are in the patch. To select one for play, go to Map Style and select "Custom". The following maps are included:
ES@Canals_V2.rms ES@Capricious_V2.rms ES@Dingos_V2.rms ES@Graveyards_V2.rms ES@Metropolis_V2.rms ES@Moats_V2.rms ES@Paradise_Island_V2.rms ES@Prairie_V2.rms ES@Sherwood_Forest_V2.rms ES@Sherwood_Heroes_V2.rms ES@Shipwreck_V2.rms ES@Team_Glaciers_V2.rms ES@The_Unknown_V2.rms ES@Seasons_V2.rms
These maps are NOT guaranteed to work effectively vs. a computer opponent or in certain game types. If you play Regicide on ES@Paradise_Island_V2, you will not get a castle or 10 starting villagers. You do get a king.
Turbo Random Map
To play this new Turbo style, select "Turbo Random Map" from the Game Type menu in either singleplayer or multiplayer mode. In this mode, all buildings work 2.5 times faster except when building econ units (fishing boats, trade ships & carts, villagers). All econ units gather 2.5 times faster and carry 2.5 times as many resources. Villagers construct buildings 2.5 times faster except for castles, towers, & wonders.
