Hey there!

Since the installer for NE 2.2 is not done yet, we decided to release at least the files without an installer. It's a simple rar-archive and yet only available for PC users.

Mind that this version is only a temporary solution until an installer (NE 2.2) will be available. In terms of content NE 2.1.5 and NE 2.2 will probably be equal, just the installer will make the difference. In fact, it's an all-in-one archive as opposed to the three single ones that have been released separately.

You need to install two folders manually, so if you're no good with that, better wait for an installer. Wink




Download NE 2.1.5
(rar archive, 68 MB)

Contains:
  • NE 2.01
  • NE AI Fix 4.0.1b*
  • NE Hotfix 7.1


*Unlike the AI Fix, this version will not turn your game's language into English.

While I checked these files on functionality, there's always the possibility that either I didn't consider something or that you might mess up your game. If you encounter any problems with this version, please report them here!

It's just a formal re-release. The NE 2.01 installer doesn't work in a satisfying way and we're working on a new one. Apart from that the two available fixes for NE 2.01 haven't been included into the official version and thus had to be downloaded and installed separately in the past. This is no longer necessary.

So, if you compare the last official standalone release 2.01 with this one, then the AI has improved and tons of bugs have been fixed due to the honorable work of motter28128, kangcliff and Yomgui.

Hi, I have one question. At the beginning my game was in Italian, after with the many patches released turned into English. Now if I install this new version of NE my game will turn in Italian again? Thanks

I wouldn't think so, no, as this new release simply is an aggregate of NE and separately released patches.

If you installed a patch by motter28128 (and kangcliff incorporated his work), then no. The reason for that is, that this patch (accidentally?) contained an English language file that overwrote your Italian one. What you could do is (1) try to download the latest Italian TAD patch from the official site and install it manually to an empty folder and grab the Italian language file or (2) ask another Italian player to send you his language file.

That language file can be found in the main directory of AoE3 in the "data" folder. To get it right, you should get two files:
  • stringtabley.xml
  • stringtabley.xml.xmb

I downloaded NE 2.1.5 and well it's a great mod I must say but there is a problem I can't age up to Imperial age in the Deathmatch homecities created for most of the European civs. No Icon of Imperial age is shown in the TC's after I reach Industrial age but this only happens for the Deathmatch HC's.

That's because Deathmatch only goes to Industrial, unless you start the game in Imperial or Post-Imperial. There's no Imperial in Deathmatch because Industrial already includes Royal Guard upgrades making imperial pretty much the same, just 50% more Damage and HP for units (pointless IMO)

I don't have a Mac and I haven't had the time to get into emulation or conversion software yet. But we will make it happen for sure (with more experienced people than me). If it won't be NE 2.1.5 or NE 2.2, at least the last release for NE 2 will have a mac version too.

Great information to know! It is all good, you all must be busy as it is. A final mac version would be good. Thanking you for the reply Smile Look forward to the day!
