This mod has not yet been approved by Voobly staff. Use at your own risk.
UserPatch is now available to be used along side Voobly's AoC patch. The perfect match for two of the largest AoC community projects ever attempted. The combined effort for these patches represents over a decade of development work. UserPatch comes with new features and an enormous list of game fixes. Voobly's patch has been the most popular patch for AoC since its introduction and comes with many features such as the game mod center and game fixes such as the rewritten network layer and anti-cheat.

When UserPatch is selected the VooblyPatch-UserPatch "super-patch" will be activated -- patch version will be shown as "vUP" in-game.

UserPatch-Style Widescreen

vUP patch lets you select which widescreen style you want to use. You can make this selection by using the command bar position menu:


Offline Patch Selector

To make it easy to watch recording games offline, Voobly automatically upgrades your game to have a patch selector. 1.3 patch games are compatible with vUP patch played games.

To work properly, you mst have the AoC .exe set to "Run as Administrator."



vUP is and is not compatible with vanilla 1.3.

It is NOT compatible in the sense of networking. vUP cannot establish a connection with someone playing outside of Voobly without vUP because VLY patch completely changes how networking functions. All users need to launch through Voobly.

It is compatible for recording games, vUP patch recordings will work on 1.3 patch.
