UPatch HD 1.1 Final


UPatch HD - the unofficial (HD) patch for "Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome" released! Version 1.1 Final brings great enhancements and new features.

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.

Avast says that your file has a virus.

Setup.exe has Malware-gen thing. Possible FP?

Yes, false positive for sure, hash values and everything checks out. The funny thing is I have Avast too and I was working on this file for months, only now it suddenly decided to recognize it as virus. :D It's disappointing how many false positives today's AV report.

The resolution inside VirtualBox Windows 7 guest is always 800x600. Are there any log files which could indicate why the full 1920x1080 resolution isn't used?

No, it's most likely due to some sort of driver incompatibility (WinXP VMs don't have this problem). Just run it on the host or on another VM.

This might sound stupid, but I'm actually trying to run this on a 1600*1200 monitor (Windows 7). Your patch doesn't support this resolution (not in the settings, at least). Can I add it manually?

Fantastic!! Thank you very much, works great! Good job, creator ;) it's a pity only for the music, which sounds perfectly but it's only Rise of Rome's one. If it contained the base AoE as well it would be THE ULTIMATE MOD OF ALL DA TIMEZ!

You can do that pretty easily actually if you have the base AoE CD. Rip tracks 2-11 from the CD and use an MP3 editing program such as Audacity to paste them into the music file. That way you have both RoR and AoE soundtracks :)
