This is the almost finished version of the mod, in there you should find new units, terrains and cliffs. There are no known issues so far, if you noticed...

I am really sorry, but I have tons of work in real life and have barely free time to do anything :(

Once the summer season (by the end of march) is over I will be able to come back and mod again at full time.

I think you should have your files in c/programfiles/microsoft games/age of empires2HD

Or something like that, once you find the folder in the one you have your game installed you need to follow the steps that I explained of copy the graphics.drs and interfac.drs on the data folder :)

If that doesnt work let me know, good luck!

It's rather involved, but not too difficult. First thing to note: the terrain CANNOT be put into the non-Steam version.

When you download the mod, it should contain a graphics.drs file and an interface.drs file. Find your AOK installation folder (generally C:\\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II) and go to the Data folder. Copy and paste the graphcis.drs and interface.drs files to this folder, overwriting the existing files. That should do it.

Oh, and make a backup of those files in case you want to get your old graphics back. Without the backup, you'll have to reinstall to get them back.

First of all, great job jorgito!

I would like to report a bug I identified in the archers. When I downloaded age hd forgotten, the new skins remained but I saw this bug: when the archers get in stand by position (not moving), the skin turns to the old one. I've seen this bug so far just in the archers.

thanks for the mod!

Thank you :)

Yes the archer problem is a known bug, i am not sure why they added a new version .slp of the old archer in the new data file. So that cause a problem that overwrite the one I did.
Once I release a compatible version with the Forgotten, that probelm is going to be fixed.
Thank you for pointing this bug :)
