Known Problems

  • If you have two (or more) different python installations on your computer try to unset the directory of your own python installation from PATH to make sure openage.bat takes the one from the installDir.
  • Usually it should not give any problems, but if you have Wololo Kingdoms installed and installed mods that change the base assets the converter will not work. A workaround would be to make a backup of your AGE2 directory, let the AGE2DIR environment variable point to that backup and in that backup inside AGE2/resources delete all files except folders. Another workaround would be to backup your AGE2 folder and redownload it to have a clean install. After conversion you replace it with the backup.
