Cheats And Co-op Matchmaking

Would be fun to have the classic cheats like the Shelby Car in the new game, but should be limited to use against bots only, not pvp.
Also would be cool if 2 v 2 or 2 v bots matchmaking is involved. Probably adding more than 4 empires would complicate things.

Would it complicate things by adding more than 4 empires? I don’t know. The cheats would definitely be fun though.

In the original game you could have up to 8 empires in a match. I see no reason why they shouldn’t allow that. (Except maybe that Multiplayer might be pretty laggy).

Bigdaddy and futureman were my all time favorites

We NEED cheats.

I really wanna know what kind of cheats were in the game back then, I’d heard of the Shelby Cobra before, but from what I see popping up in the forum here, there must’ve been quite a lot, and pretty good ones at that!

I’ve never had the opportunity to play the original game. Chomping at the bit to try it now…

  • “photon man” would give you a futuristic-looking dude who had a laser gun that owned everything.
  • “bigdaddy” was the cheat that gave you a car that fired missiles.

Those were the two I used to use a lot. There were others, but I don’t remember them. Look them up!

I never really used cheats, I didn’t even knew they where there because of my lack of internet,
but I think they should really include at least matchmaking with 8 or even 12 players.

I hope all the old cheats remain in the new version. Spam pows!

Also there is a list of cheat unit in AoE 1 and other game. There were also the classic cheat code to give 1000 of each ressource, reveal the map, reveal every player, build instant and more.

Also in the original Age of Empire cheat code can be used online only if you ticked the case “Allow cheat code” which is seen by other player in the setting window and they can just disagree and never click ready till it’s on.
