Hey all, since the beta is over now we have closed down the beta specific forums. Don't freak out if you can't see it, it's not a glitch:)
We've just implemented a new version of our old forum ranks!
The new "Idle Villager" rank has some slightly limited abilities here in the forums, and they cannot post discussions or do things like post links or set a signature on their posts. When you have commented 3 times you'll reach the rank of "Scout Cavalry" and gain all the usual posting abilities! This is to help combat spam, and should not affect most of you, as you have likely already posted more than 5 times and have a higher rank:)
Check out the list of ranks here: https://forums.ageofempires.com/discussion/15139/forum-rank-system/p1?new=1
Just updated Windows 10. Now AoE doesn't recognize CD drive.
Microsoft's latest Windows 10 update appeared last night (presumably to address Spectre and Meltdown). My system seems to be working fine, and I can access my CD (well, Blu-Ray) drive via File Explorer, but when I start AoE in Single Player mode, the game tells me I must insert a game CD. It's in the drive and has never presented a problem before. Any suggestions (other than buying Definitive Edition if/when it's released next month)? Thanks.
