I'm stuck with v1.5

After installing the HD graphics pack, the version of my copy of AOE2 was downgraded to 1.5. I deactivated the expansion, but now I’m stuck in this version. What can I do to go back to 1.7?

Too late to go back, it is. Move forward, you must, now.

Hi @RexFactorem
I don’t really understand your issue, the game version is 99404 at the moment.

He is likely talking about userpatch 1.5 or 1.7 from HD Edition or Voobly Edition not aoe2DE. Wrong place. lol

I do have DE.

When I see hera o viper streams, their UI shows they have 1.7, but mine shows 1.5.

That’s not the version, it’s the game speed. I can see how it can be confusing and I’m not sure why they did it that way, but the game usually runs at 1.7 X real time speed. Look at the in-game clock you’ll see it runs faster than a normal clock. To change it to 1.7 just click the options icon, select the “Game” tab, find the “Game Speed” setting and change it to “Normal”.
If you want to check the version then look below the Exit button on the main menu, it should be 99404.


The plus and minus keys on the numpad should also be the default hotkeys to increase or decrease the speed while playing.

Right, I was. Move forward, you must.

you can upgrade the game version to 1.7 hitting + key once :grinning:
