Okay, so i dusted my AOE2 cd off. Installed the game, no probs. But now there's some weird issue with the video settings, so it won't boot up. It might take a while, my laptop is immensly old (it was a pretty decent laptop in 2005 /yes/). I'm guessing it has something to do with diablo2, which wouldn't play before i did a video test, and it gave me some video alterations in order to play.
I'll figure it out, you'll hear more soon.
