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, Liège, Milan, 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!

6 comments by Happertesch on Apr 20th, 2015

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!

What legal version of AoK do you have exactly and how did you attempt to install the mod? There's really no way I can help you if you don't specify.

I know some people with cracked versions have played this mod just fine. However there are apparently a few different cracked versions circulating and in some of them they've moved the files around, which obviously we cannot create a fix for as then it wouldn't work on actual legal versions.

The german version on CD from 1999. What you mean which version? This was a time when games had to be finished when they entered the market.

I installed the english 1.0C patch but it doesn't work. With patch or without. The mod is installed in an extra folder within my AoE folder. I guess that is the way it should supose to be.

Since the original AoK was released a few different versions have been released, including a Collector's Edition/Gold Edition of AoK+TC and AoE+RoR+AoK+TC which has the C patch installed. The usual reason the 'insert CD' bug pops up is because the c-patch was installed over a copy of this Collector's Edition (which already has the C-patch so that it is in effect installed twice), which then causes the game to ask for the CD whether it's been inserted or not.

Full screen should work. You can toggle the correct resolution in the options menu, where you can pick from a number of resolutions.
