A utility to convert AoE graphics files called SLPs to regular BMPs and back.
Age of Empires is an epic real-time strategy game spanning 10,000 years, in which players are the guiding spirit in the evolution of small stone age tribes. Starting with minimal resources, players are challenged to build their tribes into great civilizations.
V0.1.1.1 - New EXE and no more AoE checking
I have modified the exe's properties to let you know you have Age of Heroes installed. I have also removed the Age of Empires check. Previously, the Rise of Rome would check its current path for an EMPIRES.EXE file (the original game). In fact, it could be an empty text file saved as EMPIRES.EXE... the check didn't validate the exe, just that it must exist. On the basis that the modification will be a separate installation in a sub-directory of the main game, this check is no longer required.
V0.1.1.2 - New EXE icon
I thought I would spend a little time adding a custom icon (rather than that ugly old helmet). I have gone for a Windows 8 metro icon style (several sizes right up to 256x256 are included in the exe).
V0.1.1.3 - EXE paths and general clear up
I have removed non-required files ready for compiling into an installer. I have also tweaked the paths/file types that the game checks. The 2 language.dll files have been renamed. The player state will now be saved in a user.nfo file (previously this would have been a game.nfo file). The game will now use the following extensions:
V0.1.1.4 - Main Menu
I am currently working on a new menu image, and have made some minor tweaks to the legal notice on the screen.
Still to come...
Installer - Once I have a decent build I will compile into an installer
Civ Names - Once the menu is sorted I will make changes to the civ names ready for the next round of modifications
