    HOLA! YO LE DOY CLIC EN INSTALAR Y ME APARECE ALGO COMO:
    Por favor, copia los archivos de instalación en la carpeta de age of empires ll
    EJECUTE EL .exe EN LA CARPETA DONDE ESTA INSTALADO AGE OF EMPIRES 2, EL NORMAL, PERO ME APARECE ESE MENSAJE, QUE HAGO?

    • Reganknight01

      Make sure you put all the files in the right location. Copy the forgotten empires folder into age2_x1. I threw mine into a lot of my AoC folders I don’t recommend that.

      I’m using bing translator.

      • Reganknight01

        oops heres the Spanish version

        Creo que es lo que pides:

        Asegúrense de que poner todos los archivos en la ubicación correcta. Copia la carpeta imperios olvidados en age2_x1. Lancé mía de mis carpetas de AoC que no recomiendo mucho.

        Ayudé a razón de esperanza es no entonces alguien me corrigen

        Estoy usando traductor bing.

        I used bing translator

      I cant really speak Spanish well so its hard to understand you so maybe someone that can speak Spanish can help. good luck though :)

      • Reganknight01

        Spanish version: Realmente no puedo hablar español, pues así es difícil de entender tal vez alguien que pueda hablar español puede ayudar. buena suerte aunque :)

    • olakease

      solo ay que poner el archivo q descargaste en la carpeta donde esta el age of empires 2 (requiere age of empires 2 the conquerros)

    • braian_mac

      Mira no es muy complica lo que tenes que hacer, tenes que pegar el archivo .exe que descargas en la carpeta donde se instalo el age of empires 2 con la expansión the conquerors, una ves que lo pegas en esa carpeta, lo ejecutas y vas a ver que lo podes utilizar.. Espero te sirva y no sea muy tarde.. saludos..

    Sir,

    Kindly tell me, whether this expansion is compatible with recently released Age of Empire II : HD Edition ? If not, then are there any plans of releasing the new version ?

    Regards
    Arnold

    • Promiskuitiv

      It’s not compatible with the HD edition, but it will “soon” be released as an official expansion of it.
      There are some newsposts about it on steam.
