Rise of Nations: Extended Edition

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition

Patch 1.07 Notes (August 21)
Hey guys!

We're back with a new patch, including some new functionality you've all been waiting for...

New Features
  • Steam Workshop: support for scenario and replay sharing
  • Borderless windowed mode is now an option in the graphics settings menu

Behavior Changes
  • Disabled audio taunts in the global lobby chat
  • Disabled 'Player entered/left' messages in the global lobby chat

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a graphics issue that was causing some players to see "Could not create texture" errors on startup (BGR vs RGB issue)
  • Fixed an issue where alt-tabbing in fullscreen mode could cause graphical corruption
  • Fixed text on global lobby chat buttons not being centered when the buttons were disabled
  • Fixed an issue where players sometimes could not rejoin lobbies that they just left
  • Fixed an issue where a player lagging out while Steam was down would cause all players to get a defeat
  • Fixed an issue where team colors appeared too bright on select user interface elements, including:
    -The achievement screen graphs
    -Caravan route indicators
    -Map pings
    -Territory circles on the minimap

Steam should automatically download the update, but if not, restarting your Steam client should do the trick. Happy gaming! As always, leave your comments and feedback below.

As a fan of the Age series, I want to buy this and Rise of Legends (when this game comes to Steam) but please put it on sale at 75% off. I would buy it but too many voices against mentioning bugs, lags and other things. When you announced the surprise launch of RoNEE, users assume that the game is pulished but it is not. Besides the multiplayer does not stand out. Please or polish and finish a game before you announce the launch or put it on sale if you want people playing a game that not finished-polished and paid at full price. Please forgive my english. :wololo:
*For nerds: I know RoN is not part of Age series. :AOEKnight:

I don't know about multiplayer, but the single player campaign is just as good, if not better, than I remember it from 2003, had no bugs or issues so far.
Definitely more polished than AOM EE.

Sure! This is the same in all Microsoft games, no only on RoN but, i buy others on sale and i don't pay the full price for this game. The originals runs pretty with the UserPatch, Age III no need many corrections and AoMEE requires a big machine to put all at full. Enough. Put on sale with 75% off and i buy it. :wololo:

Thank you so much to the Devs and Steve/Helen for Workshop and all those new fixes. Keep up the good job. I guess now the lobby is finished, it looks flawless.

The "Lobby chat #1 joined" message is still annoying in my opinion cause it appears everytime U switch from lobby to a room but maybe that's just me. :D

Talking about Workshop (yay!)
Helen & Steve, Could you ask the devs if they know which SDK Big Huge Games used for RoN's engine? I will talk some ideas with our Scenario players, but the majority of RoN players do not have programming skills, so maybe you guys could give us some mod tools? It's difficult to figure out which files we have to change sometimes.

But I mean, if we knew which SDK was used back in 2003 would make our work a lot easier, right??
If we used different stuff, like the Adobe Gaming SDK, we wouldn't be able to make any changes, would we?
Excuse my ignorance.

I just think that if the Devs gave us some basic tools it would be awesome. Cuz some people are really creative but couldn't design a mod to save their lives cuz they lack programming skills.
