Concentrating on the late medieval period, Age of Chivalry: Hegemony replaces or significantly alters each of the civilizations in the original game, while also adding a number of new ones, allowing the player to control Central and Western European states. Many new units and technologies have been added and gameplay dynamics have been changed considerably in this complete overhaul of Age of Empires II.

Play as Austria, Bavaria, Bohemia, Brandenburg, Brittany, Burgundy, Denmark, England, Flanders, Florence, France, Friesland, Genoa, Guelders, Helvetia, Hungary, Li├Ęge, Milan, Naples, the Papal States, Poland, Savoy, Saxony, Scotland, Venice, or Wales. Fight against your friends or the AI through random maps or on newly crafted real world maps of Central Europe, Western Europe, Northern Italy or the Low Countries, or play through the unique historical eight-scenario campaign. Explore a whole new medieval period in Age of Chivalry: Hegemony!

The three new countries made available in the new beta, the Papal States, Naples and Hungary, will add to the large number of European countries that were already playable in Age of Chivalry: Hegemony.

They not only come with their own technologies, units and policy decisions, but even have unique features. Gain florins for every building you destroy as Hungary, invest in Jubilee Years as the Papal States to gain florins, or quickly train up an army of knights straight from your stables as Naples. Each also has a wide array of policy decisions to choose from, to shape your country while you play.

Other countries have also seen changes. Not only are there new technologies and units, but new graphics have been sprinkled throughout, both for units and buildings, and some castles now even have original, progressing construction graphics.

A new version of the AI is included not only supporting the new countries, but also reconfiguring the original ones. The AI now uses more varied troop combinations and strategies and utilises new technologies.

The Lateran Palace

Furthermore, the Age of Chivalry campaign has been updated. The scenarios have been combed through for bugs and rebalanced where necessary, and an additional scenario has been added, created especially by Julius999, depicting the 1379 Chioggia War between Venice and Genoa!

Medieval Florence

N.B. This is still a beta version. Not all intended graphics have been completed: some of the new countries don't have original graphics for their monument or history files yet (to be fixed in an upcoming update), and future versions will also add more new unit and building graphics!

How to make this mod run on full screen? Changing resolution won't work (for both game option and the computer scree) :( . I want to play it on 1024/768 full screen. My laptop is weak and it can't handle higher resolution probably!

When you start a game it should switch to full screen automatically.

Nope Windows for me aswell, Win8.1 64-Bit it just uses the forced windowed mode, you can still change resolution but it won't exceed 800*600 despite I used 1680*1050 ingame.
Maximizing the Windows somehow would solve it but I'm not sure how it's done on the aoc.exe

No, AoK HD unfortunately isn't very supportive of complex mods such as Age of Chivalry.

A good mod but the AI seems to have an unhealthy obsession with barracks.
