Even faster game speed

In AoE2 HD, one could set the speed to 8x, bypassing the 2x max, by pressing the + button on the numpad. It was a helper for campaign missions, and in other games against the AI.
I couldn’t find a way to set the speed to 8 in the Definitive Edition. Is there some hidden key a have to press, a mod to download, or a config file to change? Thanks in advance, and happy holidays.

I honestly don’t remember you could do that, can you tell me how you could?

Press the + button on the numpad until it hits 8x. It also has 4x speed before hiting 8.
I don’t think this is avaliable on mp, tho - i only did this on sp games.
If you want to know, T90 once streamed a pro player game where the speed was set 8 - this on voobly, tho. Idk how it works there.

Also note, that developer has said, that these speeds are not officially supported because they can cause pathfinding and collision bugs.


Thanks for the warning my man!

Thanks. I probably should have researched on google first lol.

You are welcome. Person who made that video (T-West), also talked in beta forums about different glitches he has gotten in different versions of the game by testing x4 and x8 speeds.
