If you're having trouble using the installer, you can get the preinstalled files instead.
This post from Genette describes how to get it all setup:

How can I have my hotkeys work in the UP without having to change everything manually? I have my .hki file which used to work previously for 1.0c and UP both in win 7. Any idea?

The hotkeys should be shared. If they aren't, then maybe the player name or profile was changed at some point. To merge the settings again, delete player.nfz (the UP settings file) in the game folder. If you have UAC Compatibility Files, you may need to delete it there instead. After that, the next time you open UP, it will recreate the nfz file based on the v1.0c player.nfx/nfp file and the hotkeys should be resynced.

Hi, I wanted to play in windowed mode in GameRanger. Also in high resolution :D
Why? Because I have a dual screen setup, and I use one for watching TV.
Opening the game in full screen made the 2nd screen to become black :evil: .

GameRager just request the exe file, and it must be called be age2_x1.exe or it won't work.
In most servers, the required version was 1.0c, but I was showing 1.4 due the UserPatch 1.4, so it was impossible to play.
Also, there was no way to set the "V1C=1", as there wasn't any config to put optional command line arguments.
So, I struggled my brain and made an "exe that loads other exe" thing, a fake "age2_x1.exe" that loads "age2_x1.4.exe" (UserPatch v1.4 age2_X1.exe, renamed :) ) and the input arguments (only the dplay guid{...}" is the important one which tells the game where to connect), so the hook is transparent.
I must say that it works very well! So, I'd like to share there for everyone.
It's written in ANSI C, a few hours of quick C learning, and done!
For the curious, the code is this:
Code: Select all
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    char cmdLine[128];
    unsigned char a;
    for(a=0;a!=argc;a++){
        if(  !( strcmp(argv[a], "lobby")) ){ break; }
    }
    sprintf(cmdLine, ".\\age2_x1\\age2_x1.4.exe lobby %s V1C=1",argv[a+1]);
    system( cmdLine );
    exit(0);
}

So, to make it work, rename the modded age2_x1.exe to age2_x1.4.exe
Place my exe on the age2_x1 folder. Done!
You may ask, Why do I add ".\age2_x1\" path in the argument line?
Well, GameRanger executes the exe in the main Conqueror's folder, so I must correct that!
I've attached the file there, with a small Readme.
I hope it's useful for someone. :mrgreen:
Regards!

*edit*
I must say that it's working on Windows 8 x64, so I guess it will work on any Windows machine
