Hi

Just to let you know that today Age of Wonders is Re-Released on GOG.com and Impulse. Check out all the news over there!

AoW2 and AoWSM will also be Re-Released soon!

We are also working together with other "unannounced digital download services" to make the complete Age of Wonders series available as well.

Enjoy!

This is great! So AoW will be there, available to new players, together with the old Simtex games and the all-new "Elemental"!

Swolte, could the 1.4 patch be made available for download on GoG and Impulse, too?

The original is on Impule? I think I will get it when I update Elemental to v1.08.

Really great news and nice prices.

Now AoW is an "immortal" game. Digital available in online download stores.
No chance for "excuses" for "pirate copies".
Really great news!
Would be nice to see new members, mapmakers and modders and maybe one day the "thing" all the modders look for.

AoWSM Maps: 1. Marlenes Welt 2. Marlenes Schatten 3. Marlenes Gnade
Up.1.4 Maps: 4. Secrets of Marlenia (UPatch 1.4 Map - update) 5. Gates of Elocin - Part I (Mapmaking Competition - Winning Map) 6. Davidīs Winter Wonderland 7. Fairy Wedding
8. Marleneīs_Laughter 9. The Gods Arena Of Magic And Power 10. The_Wilderness 11. Kayland (AoW I Mod) 12. Mia-Mina_&_The_Seadrake

Sorry, Groll, but with the game available for purchase for the decades to come, I am afraid that the "thing" is not going to be released to the public anytime soon. "Things" are released only for dead games. And AoW is ALIVE, and kicking!!!

On the other hand, if the game still sells well after 7 years, maybe there could be a third epis...

Er, no daydreaming. It is not healthy at my age.

What I hope for is that they do something like Paradox does - they allow modders to make their own games based on Paradox' older titles (EU2, HoI2 etc.), and then sell them on "digital download services".

If TS is willing to do something similar, I'm definitely interested in making a new AoWSM-based game.

you'll have to get from link not client- it's not supposed to be up yet, but you can get it there.

I just did. Something else to play until Elemental gets it act together.

Also, please let us know immediately if there are issues with installing the unofficial v1.4 patch on top of these releases. It shouldn't... but just in case!

I've been wondering ever since I first saw GoG when AoW would find it's way on there. Happy days!

I think the "unannounced digital download services" is Steam.

Has anyone downloaded the total pack or just AoW:SM yet? I am wondering because the only one I bought was the original AoW so far. I noticed that AoW2 and AoW:SM are not yet 'officially' for sale...

Has anyone downloaded them, and are they running ok?

Any issues with the usual mods?

All the individual downloads for Impulse work and are compatible with existing mods. Having all of them, I have not tried the Trilogy pack but I assume it is the same.

I've purchased, downloaded and run AoW:SM using the Impulse link above. It seems to work fine (a little stuttery in a Parallels VM though). It comes installed at v1.30.0.2616. Haven't tried any of the patches yet - I played the heck out of this when it first came out, but am only just figuring out what mods and stuff are available for it now.

It seems Stardock has disabled the ability to purchase Shadow Magic and Wizard's Throne (and likely the Trilogy set). Previous downloads still work, but if you do not already have them you will have to wait longer.

Via Impulse only; other sources would be unaffected of course.

I just grabbed age of wonders from gog.com - looooove that site. Anyway I thought of trying out some mods so I downloaded rule changer and dark lord. I installed both and followed instructions, but now when I try to launch the game I get the msg, please insert cd. The game worked fine before installing the mods.

One of the reasons I bought it was to check out the mods so this is slightly disappointing. Still worth every penny, you just don't find games like this these days. And the music, so so beautiful.

Could anybody give a short report on the copy-protection measures these sites are taking on purchased AoW software?
Gwenio

For Impulse, it is the same as the protection used on there other games aquired through the same method it seems.

Overview:
- When running Impulse, it connects to Stardock's server and gets data for your account about what games can be played.
- You can download any game associated with your account that is not already installed, and do so on an infinite number of computers.
- When running the game(s) it seems to check some local (on your machine) data source created by Impulse about what games the last account you had logged in as has registered to play.

No internet required after download to play, and you can get it again as long as Stardock does not disappear. Other download sevices may do it diffrently, of course.

I have downloaded a bunch of games from GOG.com lately. There's no copy protection, once you buy the game it's yours and you can download it again at any time. They also offer free downloads associated with the game like manuals and other stuff. Good site.
