The install a software named VirtualCloneDrive and mount the ISO files with it, install both versions and finally run Forgotten Empires. Hope I could help you. 🙂

Hello, I’ve got a problem with installing FE. I copied the installation files into my AOE2 folder as usual, but when I try to install it using the application, it says I already have installed the newest version. I’d really appreciate the help from someone here.

You should have the Aoe II Conquerors exp installed already. Download Manual installation and zip.
Extract everything to desktop then just copy paste it to the orig folder. Run the launcher and after that, run the age2_x2.exe

I have already install it susesfully but the game does not show me the menu of campaigns of forgotten why?

Dave

It does not work. The game does not start. the only forgotten empires icon i can find only opens a install setup window.
when you try to press install button (again) it says you have the latest version of AOEforgotten…
but there is no way to start the game. no icon to press, nothing…
when I try to find the game on gameranger it is not there.
What is the problem?
