AoE patch 1.0b
Note that this is the patch for the English, German and French version of AoE; for other versions, try Microsoft's AoE download page later. The patch comes with a fast installation program, so installing it should not be a problem. You do not need the 1.0a patch for it.
Microsoft Age of Empires 1.0b is an upgrade of Age of Empires 1.0 that includes the 1.0a patch, along with several enhancements and bug fixes. These changes include:
- Population Limits
- Stand Ground Button
- Attack Responses
- Group Movements
- Pathing Options
- Allied Transport Loading & Boat Repair
- Infinite Resources During High Latency -- Buildings no longer return more resources than they originally cost if you press the DELETE key several times during high latency.
- Multiple Town Centers During High Latency -- You can no longer build multiple Town Centers if you delete your Town Center in the Tool Age or Stone Age and then quickly build several new ones during high latency.
- Way Points -- Villagers no longer complete tasks at a way point that is not at a work site. The way point or villager must be at the actual work site (fishing spot, building site, etc.) before they can work. For example, you can no longer use way points to construct a building on the other side of a wall.
If you are playing a multiplayer game, all players must be using the same version of Age of Empires.
If you are playing a saved game, it must be from the same version of Age of Empires you currently have installed.
