moders can’t fix the game as you think.
Isn’t easily… AoE II HD still have problems.
You’d be surprised what modder’s can do once they develop the right tools, the original on cd has essentially been fixed with the introduction of userpatch. HD is a mess thanks to some horrible spaghetti code
A lot of games, forget just RTS, don’t have it unless devs thought to have mods since beginning and they build their game and it’s engine in that basis.
AFAIK the engine is in fact the original, therefore all we need is mod support.
Actually four developer teams contributed to the AOE II HD edition. Skylabs, Hidden Path, Ensemble and Forgotten Empires. As far as I know regarding the DE releases only FE and ES is involved. Please correct me if I’m wrong
As somewhat pointed out later, ES did not work on HD, some old ES employees joined FE
You can save your games in a HDD. You are the real owner.
Not true, most developers sell you a license of a game that you can use according to its EULA. Basically thats what happens when you hit accept on them terms and agreements.
