Yeah just tried to download this game and it will not open the installation screen. Error claims to have a missing file for Mac OS. Its a shame it was my favorite game while growing up.

This game is really awsome man good job :)

SEGStriker 2017-10-03 2 points

For those who can't run this: use old Mac with Mac Classic (up to 9.2.2) OS or MacOS X 10.4 with classic environment.
If not possible - use an emulator like Basilisk II (680x0, up to OS 8.1) or SheepShaver (PPC, up to OS 9.1).

Lontra 2017-08-02 3 points

For those of you asking for an update: it is not possible.

This is a PPC application and will not run on Intel Macs that don't support Rosetta. So it can't be run on Lion and forward.

For some reason when I download this game, I get only the original Age of Empires (1999). Is there another download for Age of Empires II with the Conquerors expansion?

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Steve 2016-07-07 1 point

I've read that the windows version of this game won't work on W7 and newer - apparently it's the architecture of Windows that's changed too much

jas 2016-07-06 -6 points

When I double click on the updater, it says ' must first locate the original Age of Empires II aplication on your hard disk.' Does anyone know how to get past this? Thanks

Ocean 2016-06-30 -2 points

Im having the same problem where i can not expand it

beef 2015-06-08 1 point Mac version

sounds like is sucks. if i was going to get a disc, i'd get it from a legitimate source.
sorry to disspoint, but i am going to keep looking for a good download. plus, if you want to play this with a friend, you would have to get a PC, or go through more work.

Jurisdudence 2015-05-23 -6 points Mac version

What do I have to do to play this game?

Ando 2015-04-27 2 points Mac version

Yeah this doesnt work - I tried using Stuffit and it wouldnt allow me to expand the file

zack 2015-04-27 0 point Mac version

I'm having the same issue. I try to open with Stuffit and it won't let me save it anywhere. Also, I've gone and downloaded Sheepshaver, is that what I'll need to play this if it ever works?

Naco 2015-04-18 2 points Mac version

When I try to open the file it says I "don't have permission to access folder", even if it's my regular applications folder

dav_dub 2015-03-16 1 point Mac version

You need to make a CD out of it... Old school way...

Chronicl3 2015-02-16 -1 point Mac version
