Looks like i'm back online

Post by 36drew »

I played my first game last night without lag. :D It's been two weeks so I was super slow in my APM but it was fun. I also need to get used to having a new UI and graphics since the reinstall and I forget all my old settings.

Watch up, i'm coming for your PR. :twisted:

I only played one game with them and they seem to be more 'balanced'. Not as strong on sea/TP maps, but at least have some hope on maps like Bayou. Of the 12 civs I would place them at about 7th overall.

Well, I think Drew means that the 12 civ which he can play. I wonder which other two he doesn't like to play. :D

[quote=""StrokeyBlofeld""]Here you go Lazy, I've been using the Ekanta UI's since I got AOE3.

Ekanta UI

It's transparent and provides all sorts of details and features. I find it much better than the stock UI.

(UI = User Interface).[/quote]

Ty Sir. :D

That UI is awesome. I feel like such a noob never knowing about stuff like that.

And I was going to correct drew that there are 13 civs. Glad I didn't. Doh!

:-P

Ekanta's UI is the best, I'm using it for quite some time. It takes some time to get used to it but you have a larger view.

Ja, just used it now. I am still coming to terms with it, but it is more helpful than normal UI. Are there any other useful mods that we noobs should know? :D

One other. If you press ctrl + alt + delete twice really fast as soon as a game hits the 2:00min mark, your graphic card gets a boost.

Due to lag problems I also use the low lag homecity mod that removes hcs animation, in case anyone's interested. That's all, I think.
