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!

Hi I would like to know if you are supposed to be able to play without a disc (because I cannot), and how do you add custom maps to the game, because I have the gold edition and the maps wont appear in the map selection (custom/standard/real).

Hi! The installation takes account of your regular settings - if your version of AoK requires you to play with a CD, it will still require it after installing AoCH, but if it doesn't require it, it won't need a CD after installation either. There is one known bug with this: if you install the c patch over a version of AoK:TC that already has the patch pre-installed (like the Gold and Collector's Editions) then the double installation of the c patch will require you to use a CD. Perhaps this is what happened with you. You should only install the c patch prior to installing Age of Chivalry if your version doesn't already have it installed.

To the second point, you need to put them in your Age of Empires II\Games\Age of Chivalry\Script.RM\ folder. Custom scenarios and campaigns should go into Age of Empires II\Games\Age of Chivalry\Scenario. You will also find a screenshot and savegame folder here. Hope this helps!

You can install it without uninstalling the old version, but if you run into bugs or weird behaviour it can be best to uninstall and reinstall on a clean version of the game.

Hi, the main features - the new countries and general gameplay - are locked, but work is still ongoing to perfect what is already there. In practice, that means fixing bugs and balance problems, and adding new building and unit graphics as time goes on. At the moment, I'm working on giving Milan more unique building graphics in its own red brick style, and completing the Dutch architecture set to also cover the early game and include all buildings. However, as that's quite a bit of work it may be a while before this update will be released.

"Error in line number 2: ADR 0x001B2D8E Can't go to address: $1B2D8E" I keep getting this error when I try to install the mod... It opens some sort of "coding" window, and gives me this error. Then, if I click Close, it finishes the Install in failure... Can anyone help me?

Hi, I asked the guy who made that part of the install script if he knew what was going on. This was his answer:

'About this problem: this is really weird... an error like this one would only be displayed if UP (Userpatch) was not installed properly, since XVI32 would try to patch an .exe that has a smaller size than it was expecting. But, if it was an UP installation failure, XVI32 would display a 'File not found' error, since it tries to patch aoc.exe, not age2_x1.exe. Unless if there is another aoc.exe inside the age2_x1 folder....

So, the best I can suggest is telling him to check if there is any other aoc.exe inside the age2_x1 folder....'
