      No new exe appeared after installation. There is no launcher so I can't launch it.

        Or did you accidentally install it to .wine?

        Your exe is likely in
        ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Age of Empires 2/
        if you used the legacy installer.

      It is right there - AoK HD.exe
      Run it via terminal using wine.

      Launching both exes with steam did nothing but return an error.

            Go to ./bin and check the exes there
            You are probably running a crack and they often expect you to use different executables and the binaries folder is probably there for that

            Ok I just checked the particular crack that you have and the crack is in the mounted drive "Crack" folder. Just paste the 3 files into the game directory and overwrite existing ones.
            Seriously dude, it literally says "Crack", i don't know how you miss that.

            if you don't want to download from rutracker you can just download games normally and add them to Steam as a non-Steam games and run them with Proton on it, should work in most cases and you don't even need to install Wine

        ps. generally speaking you want to use a cracked version, especially of older games, because they remove the DRM, which is more likely to not work in wine than the game itself

        >Why must piracy of games being so much more convoluted than movies?
        because all the hard work for movies is done before you get it, ripping, muxing, encoding, decrypting, capturing, whatever, it's all done by someone else. by the time it gets to you, it's just a regular video file like any other
        cracking games though, is not always so consistent. in many cases it is just a patch for the main executable, but sometimes there's more to it
        you don't usually have to do more to run the game than open the appropriate executable though. the one i found on archive.org just runs from "AoK HD.exe", it's a steam rip so the crack is mainly in steam_api.dll instead

    why do people prefer aoe II over III?

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Drastically different games, II is more defensive, the micromanagement in it is insane since you can actually just completely avoid projectiles in the early game, villagers in need way more attention to actually gather at good rates, and buildings are overall stronger too. III has the weird ass Home City Card Deck system, but way more varied naval combat (Though I think DE/HD addressed this a bit in II, not sure, mainly played OG), walling is way weaker, and the maps are pretty small from what I remember. Both are great games, but scratch different itches.
