How to Skip the Introduction Cinematics:
Written by Cainam

A quick guide on how to skip the introduction cinematics when you launch the game.

Skip the introduction cinematics
Go to ...\steamapps\common\AoE2DE\resources\_common\movies
Create a folder named "backup".
Move "aoeii4K.wmv" and "aoeiide_titlevideo.wmv" to the backup folder.
The game should launch now without the intro videos/cinematics.

How to Get the classic Intro:
In this guide I’ll show you how to get the classic Age of Empires 2 Intro with 
the two kings playing chess back.

-=How to do it=-
1.Locate the current intro video called "aoeiide_titlevideo.wmv" 
2.Replace it with the old intro.
=> The easiest way is to replace it with the HD Edition intro (Age2HD\resources\_common\movies) 
   -> don’t get confused as there are two video files, both are the same except "aoeiihd_x2.wmv" 
   is for the The Forgotten expansion
=> However, you can also download it from YouTube using a Video downloader.
Remember to rename the files!

General Tips for New Players:
Memorize default hotkeys or assign new ones that fit your playstyle.

* Use SHIFT key to give multiple orders to a unit (or groups of them).
* Explore all areas surrounding your base first (SHIFT comes very useful 
  for this when you order your scout to do so).
* Don’t stop creating villagers and make sure you are able to reach Feudal 
  in 10 minutes, Castle in around 15-16 and Imperial in 28-30 minutes.
* Adapt use of military, research, buildings, etc to the bonuses of the 
  civilization you have chosen (also, learn build orders for it).
* Use multiple archers or scouts to harrass AI villagers that are far away 
  from their own Town Center during Feudal Age.

Console Commands:
Just hit the Enter button or click the Chat icon in the top-right. That 
should bring up a text box. Type in one of the cheat codes listed below 
and then hit Enter button again. The cheat codes aren't case sensitive, 
so all you've to do is spell them right.

- Reveals the entire map. It works as a switch - on or off - so entering 
  it again will hide the map.

- Removes the fog of war. This too works as a switch, like so entering it 
  again will restore the fog of war.

alpaca simulator
- Creates an "Alfred the Alpaca", which looks like a Llama. Very high armour 
  value, trample damage, and attacks with headbutts. Strong in melee combat, 
  weak against speed, ranged attack.

- Creates an "Sharkatzor", which resembled a flying shark with rockets 
  launches on its back. Has a very high damage capacity, and has a 10 square 
  firing sight line.

furious the monkey boy
- Creates a "Furious the Monkey Boy". Destroys buildings easily, but slow and 
  dies after taking nine hits.

how do you turn this on

  high hit points, armour, and damage. Poor AI, bullets harm friendly units.

i don't exist- 
- Creates a "Penguin". High armour and damage.

i love the monkey head
- Creates a "VMDL". Quick and good for exploring. Cannot attack but grant attack 
  bonus to buildings if garrisoned. Fun fact: VMDL stands for Villager Male David
  Lewis and in case you're wondering, David Lewis was in the team that made the 

to smithereens
- Creates a Saboteur. More effective and faster than a Petard, the only non-cheat 
  suicide unit on land.
