    After installing this, it seems that the commands for military units have disappeared. I can’t group or instruct them… Anyone having the same problem?

    It’s a real shame about these expansion packs. I really do love the Age of Empires franchise but IMHO Steam as the only purchase platform really sucks. It’d be nice if retail discs of the expansions/remakes would be released. And no I’m not talking about those weird Steam discs where it’s just a steam installer, but a full-fledged disc of the game that can install it independantly.

    I have an other kind of problem… Everything works very good. But in my computer, there isn’t snow and ice, it appears like grass and shallows. But the computer from my brother does have snow.

    I would be very happy, if you can resolve my problem.
