I did following:

Note: I pre-ordered before 25th of jan)

  1. Download XBox Insider Hub ( https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NBLGGH68VSK )
  2. Open and Login on XBox (the same Login credentails as for pre-order)
  3. Go to “Insider-Inhalt” (e.g. I guess in EN it`s called “Insider-Content”
  4. Click on it “install” …
  5. You will redirected to Microsoft Store and you can now download the App (approx. 17 GB)

Note 2: It was taking more than 1 hour on my 500Mbit/s broadband Connection

I hope this helps you a Little bit. If you are not able to download it, you was not picked up for the closed beta Group…

However, I cant start the game, after few seconds of black windows-Screen -> closed. nothing happens.

I am not sure ;-/

You can get help for this in the Beta Forum.

Since the last update there are no rooms to play in multiplayer mode. When I create a room no one appears … What happens to my game?

Fair enough. I cant remember the different features between AoE and aoeRoR, so not gonna go into that

i know this might be the wrong place for this but im just hoping this is heard; please ramp up the catapult spawn sound as a long time fan that grew up on the original im hoping this sound is boosted to the level of the other spawn sound effects. battles could be won or lost without hearing them spawn. please. growing up those were always my favorite because of the sound they made.
