changing options

#1Richyd13Posted 3/9/2009 11:06:41 PM
Hey guys i'm wondering if there is a way to have more than just 2 teams.

like in Age 2 you can have a 2v2v2v2 but in this game it seems as though there can only be two teams.

a second question, is there a way to change it off Standard victory? Me and my roommate play lan games and i've been playing conquest since the first age of empires but that option now seems to be missing.

For your first question: You can either play an FFA or a 2 teams game. Sadly, you can't play 2v2v2v2 or such.

Second question: Change "Game Rules" from "Standard" to "Classic". I think classic is the same as conquest.

Oh, these "Game Rules" can be found at the game lobby; the place where you choose map, color, difficulty, etc.

Maybe it can't be changed in LAN. I wouldn't know. Did you try in singleplayer?
Also try downloading the latest patch. You can autoupdate via the game directly.

ok, so i decided to check today

turns out i can change the option in a single player skirmish, but not on lan.

just disappointing
