Notes
  • If you use these cheats you will not get any achievements.
  • To use cheats in multiplayer you must first "Allow Cheats" in the lobby of the multiplayer game you are creating.
  • Units will all spawn at your first town center.
  • NATURAL WONDERS - gives player the control of all animals but lose control of everything.
Easy way to farm Achievements
There is an easy way to speed up the way to get the achievements in AoE 2 HD. There is no need for additional downloads/scripts...
All you have to use is the Map Editor of the game.



  • Go to the Map Editor and create scenario.
  • Now build what you need for your achievements.
  • Save your map and leave the editor.












  • Start Single Player, Standard Game.
  • Choose Scenario...
  • Load your map.










Enjoy your achievement hunting ;)


Note: Keep in mind, this does not acquire any skill to get all achievements. It is more fun when you get them in a REAL game.

another achievement tip: save the game just before winning. Then go back to main menu and load up the save. Rinse & Repeat. Easy way to get the civilization and gamemode based achievements.

You don't even have to save the scenario. Just test it.
