Patch 1.01 for Age of Mythology is the first update for the game. It resolves several issues with the game client and networking during multiplayer matches.
Changes[edit | edit source]
Patch 1.01 - addresses multiplayer connection problems and fixes a few exploits. This patch version does not affect unit or civilization balance or scenario editor functionality.
Client fixes[edit | edit source]
- Improved cheat checks for "zoom out" exploit.
- Fixed an Advanced Setup crash when changing public / private rapidly.
- Fixed a problem with Advanced Setup host dialog not closing when inviting others.
- Quick Setup games now default to 5 pauses maximum.
- Requests for in-game saves are now counted as a pause towards the maximum pause limit.
- Fixed DirectIP connection issues (see below for details).
Network and ESO fixes[edit | edit source]
- Improved login code: We have improved the ESO login code. Users should now experience fewer errors when connecting to ESO and therefore login on the first attempt.
- This patch includes fixes for the stats upload (2,4) problem. If you continue to receive this error message, please try shutting down any other applications or services you have running before launching AoM - the problem may be related to having other processes running in the background. We are continuing to investigate this issue.
- Improved NAT/firewall support on ESO: We have added more support for manually configured NATs and firewalls in this update. You are now able to place your machine on the DMZ, and/or manually open up UDP port 2300 and the game will do a better job of configuring itself in that environment.
- Improved NAT/firewall support for DirectIP: We have improved AOM’s DirectIP support in this patch for users who are running behind a NAT, firewall, or proxy server. There two ways to access this new support.
Direct IP[edit | edit source]
#1 - If the player wants AOM to automatically configure itself for DirectIP, add the following line to the Age of Mythology shortcut:
This will cause AOM to automatically configure the player's external IP address information any time they select a DirectIP or LAN game (by querying the ESO Address Server.) If the player want to host games behind a router, NAT or firewall, they will also need to map/open UDP port 2301 to the host machine or place the host machine on the DMZ.
#2 - If the player wants to define/override their external IP address manually, add the following line to the Age of Mythology shortcut:
This option is for advanced users who do not have a public internet connection to ESO, or do not want the game to attempt to contact the servers at all. Replace X.X.X.X with the external IP address of the player's machine. For instance, if their machine has an internal 'fake' IP address of 10.10.0.1, but an external 'real' IP address of 22.214.171.124, they would add OverrideAddress=?126.96.36.199? to their AOM shortcut. If the player wants to host games, please map/open UDP port 2301 to the host machine or place the host machine on the DMZ.
