Now you can watch any recorded games played in the balance patch without opening voobly. Follow Step 1 ONCE and then onwards, watching a balance patch rec is as simple as watching any rec!

(NOTE: If your installation path is different then do appropriate adjustments and do these steps for your installation path!! For example, if your game is installed in E:\AOE2\ then replace "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\" with "E:\AOE2\" for every step)

1). Download and extract the contents in this topic to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games (If there is no Games folder, create one)

2). To watch recs, put the recs you want to watch to the savegame folder inside the Balance Patch folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games\Balance Patch\SaveGame

3). Open the shortcut "Balance Patch" with the conquerors icon at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games which launches the balance patch offline. Find your recs in Saved and Recorded Games as normal.

Full credits go to TheMadCadder and scripter!!

NOTE: In case you have a different path where you installed, you have one more thing to do:

If your path is different:

Right click Balance Patch shortcut (the one with conquerors icon), click properties, then edit the "target" from

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\age2_x1\age2_x1.4.exe" game=Balance_Patch

to your path. If you dont have an exe named age2_x1.4.exe, change it to age2_x1.exe

yes, its in C/Program Files(x86) and main is called age2_x1.4
I don't know what else to say, I think everything is set up in a standard way.

i still have problems with this patch.

i extracted all components to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games
i put the balenced recs to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games\Balance Patch\SaveGame

i edited the target in "balance patch" (located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games) connection to: E:\AoE2\age2_x1\age2_x1.exe game=Balance_Patch
cause my istalled game is there.

if i double click the edited "balance patch" the game starts. but i cant see the "balanced recs". i still see the
recs in: E:\AoE2\SaveGame
i can start the non balanced recs there with no problems. if i copy the "balanced" recs to this folder, i get the "game paused" situation.

hi,

the folder of the balanced recs is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Games\Balance Patch\SaveGame

at: E:\AoE2\SaveGame
i have the normal recs (not balanced), which are working.

Since your game is installed in E:\AoE2\ you should replace "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\" with "E:\AoE2\" for each and every step.

Hope that is clear? I edited the topic post to clear things up better.
