Experience the game in HD quality with custom resolutions (up to 1920x1200), HD interface graphics and the original Rise of Rome soundtrack in mp3 (replacing midi)!

Along with the many new gameplay options, like random teams, random map type, Post-Iron age start, new Path Finding option, etc, version 1.1 Final features two new random map types! The desolate "Oasis" and the treacherous "Rivers".


Also exclusive to the Final version - the new HD Launcher, a remake of the original game launcher (do you remember it?), now a central place for all UPatch HD settings and the new Mod Manager.


More balanced gameplay, while still staying true to the original game: balance was adjusted according to user feedback and votes from the surveys gathered for over a year.

Even more bug fixes: UPatch HD now contains over 200 bug fixes (including critical ones like the color bug fix, save game crash fix, etc). New consistency checks were added to prevent possible problems. In addition, the new HD Launcher includes an option to check your game installation for missing/corrupted files.

All this and much more in UPatch HD 1.1 Final! For more information, visit the official site. The full list of changes is posted there.

A question. How can I mod the resources. I mean the bery bushes, the fishes, gold mines and stone mines, the trees and so, in order to make them hold more resources. I'm using A.G.E 3 but after I save the changes the game remains the same. When I open the A.G.E 3 I can see the changes haven't been saved. Don't know why.

This game is overall awesome with this mod, However I still see some problems with this final mod. When I started playing campaigns I noticed the text on the scenario instructions and victory splash screens was messed up sometimes and what happened to the intro videos prior to the menu screen?

The actual scenario text is not affected and perfectly readable, but some additional symbols appear sometimes at the end of the longest lines when using high resolution. I couldn't correct this so far, but the actual fix behind this prevents crashes. That's the only problem and it's a very minor one that doesn't affect gameplay.

Start a Multiplayer game with only computer players. By "skirmish" I assume you mean Single Player.

It's everything fine!

but there is one problem, my campaign Profile erases after I let out the game, and go back. What could be?

I don't know, I keep my profiles after exit and no one has reported such problem so far (so it's probably not related to the patch). Perhaps some sort of file permission problem in Windows, try running the game as administrator or reinstall the game to another folder.
