Getting Started on Voobly!
Since the closure of CD-Rom game support on MSN Zone the staff at Voobly has been dedicated to providing the best online matchmaking service for Age of Empires II: The Conquerors. During these years Voobly has added features and improvements to enhance the game play and stability for Age of Empires II: The Conquerors and the AoC community.
Enhanced Game Features:
- Mirrored Civilizations - This option allows each team to receive the same civilizations as the other team, providing a more even match up in your game by eliminating the possibilities of having a team with all weak civilizations.
- Anti-Cheat - Voobly has spent over 7 years developing and updating the only working Anti-Cheat System for the Age of Empires Series which is now integrated into the AoC Voobly patch to provide the best protection against all cheats.
- Window-Mode - It is now possible to launch your Aok in window-mode, simply click the "Game" button in your game room and select "Directx" and check the "Render in 32bit color" and the "Start in window-mode".
- Widescreen 2.0 - Voobly has released an improved version of widescreen support for Voobly. Widescreen 2.0 has improved the old widescreen layout by fixing the bottom bar and it is also now possible to use multiple monitors while playing your games!
Now it is possible to choose the position(center,left,right,stretch) of your Command Bar(mini map, unit controls) at the bottom of your screen. At the top of your game room click [Game>Resolution Tool>Command Bar Position] and select where you want your Command Bar positioned.
For complete information about Widescreen 2.0 read Here.
- Multiple Monitor Support - If you have multiple screens you can now enable the multi-monitor support on Voobly and the game will span across all your screens. The only requirement is that you set your the monitor on the left as the primary display within Microsoft Windows display settings.
To enable multi-monitor select "Span Game Across Multiple Monitors" from the resolution tool menu: for complete information about multi-monitor support read here.
- Color Fix - Age of Empires II has some graphic problems when running on Windows Vista\Win7\Win8, causing the game colors to become distorted, showing the grass and water in different colors. These issues are now fixed automatically through Voobly. There are no extra files to setup, simply launch your game and allow Voobly to fix these problems for you!
