AoW+ is a patch that introduces a number of gameplay changes. For a list of all changes please refer to the readme file.
Extract the archive and put all files and folders in the Age of Wonders directory. No files will be overwritten unless AoW+ has previously been installed.
AoW+ requires Age of Wonders version 1.36.53 or 1.36.54. AoW+ has been tested only with the retail and GOG distributions and may or may not work with other distributions.
On Windows XP and older, run AoW+.exe.
On Windows Vista and newer, run the game from the AoW+ shortcut in the + folder, or run AoW+.exe with Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode enabled.
AoW+ exclusively modifies engine files; mods that only modify resource files are technically compatible with AoW+ and can be installed the usual way. This includes "rule-sets" built from AoWEd.
Mods that come with their own engine files are not compatible with AoW+.
Installing AoW+ to a non-retail distribution may cause the game language to change; in this case you can force a language in the registry by navigating to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Triumph Studios\Age of Wonders\General and setting Language to 1 (for English).
