Age of Empires II 1.0.5 Update
9:44 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Bold by Destineer has recently released an update to Age of Empires II, its medieval strategy title. The update, which brings the game up to version 1.0.5, adds some new features as well as various bug fixes, many of which are related to OS X.

Here's a list of some of the new features and fixes:

  • Added a confirmation dialog for the Command-Q keystroke. This prevents inadvertent quitting of a game.
  • Added Pause mode (Cmd-P) which pauses the game and allows you to switch to other running applications.
  • Under OSX, you can now choose to run the game in 256-color mode. Previously, Thousands of Colors was automatically used. The difference between the two settings is subtle. The game can only display 256 colors, regardless of your monitor settings.
  • Under OSX, if you hosted a multiplayer game, your name might have appeared twice as a player.
  • Fixed a Jaguar problem on multiple monitor systems where the game would run but the graphics would not be displayed. If you have this problem, you may need to reselect your preferred monitor in the Age of Empires II setup window. Press the Command key when launching the game to display this dialog.
Those interested in grabbing this download can find it at VersionTracker, along with a complete list of the fixes and changes that accompany this update.
