Lost in new AOC versions

Postby  _sevem » Sat Sep 16, 2017 9:43 pm

Coming back from an extended AOC-break I feel a bit lost with regard to all the new different AOC versions currently used on Voobly (so lost I don't even know where to post this actually...)

Is there any easy-to-read summary how all the current versions are related?
- Forgotten Empires Expansions (three of them)
- AOC HD
- Wololo Kingdom
- Voobly User Patch V1.5

So far I understand that the new upcoming thing is the Voobly User Patch V1.5 which basically improves a lot of current functions. I got the feeling that the new patch combined with all the forgotten empires is then called wololo kingdom...

Anyway - thanks for any help!

well basically , 1.5 patch is the newer version of the userpatch that added a lot of features , those new features were then implemented by a data mod called "wololokingdoms" made by jineapple .

the wololokingdoms mod doesnt get installed automatically when you join a game room , since you need to run its installer first . the installer checks if you own aoe hd on steam and all the expansions , and if you do its will use some files from your aoe hd game to then build and extract the "wololokingdoms" mod on your voobly mods folder .

i hope that this have helped you in understanding the overall idea of how this all works out .

There are 2 main versions of the game:

Old clasic one. Userpatch is a patch that makes the experience better, without changing the balance. (mainly bugs)
Most people play it voobly.

HD one, with up to 3 expansions, Forgotten, Afrikas and Rajas.
You can play this one on Steam or with the compatibily patch on voobly, with userpatch features.
If you have all the 3 expansions you can install the wololokindgoms patch, to be able to play the expansions on voobly (or single player out of steam with userpatch features)

Therefore if you are playing on Voobly with no expansions you could either play with someone with the old game, or the steam version.

If you want to play with the expansions, in voobly or steam you have to buy them on Steam.
