The reason I bought this game is because it is optimized for windows 7. AOE 2 has graphic glitches on windows 7

Turn off the "Explorer.exe" in the Task-Manager while playing.
You can start it later again, when you stop playing.

This game goes incredibly laggy after some population !! Does anyone have a solution? I don't even think or consider my rig is not powerful enough :DD

IKR. You got a nice rig right there so I guess the problem really is, lack of optimization. And I also can't believe they didn't add a resolution change menu. Waste of money, just copy-paste and add HD at the end of the tittle.

Let's not forget that a cool upgrade would be the Steam workshop and achievements. Animations are also amped up. I think this is a nice re-make. Yes, could have been better but it doesn't need to be. AOE2 is a great game nonetheless.

Did you feel the deference in graphics between this one and the previous release?
And how about the movement and combat mode in this one,Has it been changed too?

Personally I feel the textures and graphics have been definitely ramped up.
But I'm not sure why, it still looks quite dated.
I read somewhere that it might be due to the fact that they use sprites instead.
Movement and combat has no noticeable update, but animations and all actions in general seem more fluid.
Just my two cents.
