11/15/02 - 5:45CST - It will be back in about an hour. Sorry for the delayed timing on this but we'll have the servers back online just as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience!

============================================================ ======
Age Of Mythology(tm) v1.01
Patch Release Notes
November 12, 2002
============================================================ ======

If you are having trouble connecting to ESO or to games and other users, please check out the Age of Mythology FAQ on http://www.eso.com

============================================================ ======
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

- 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

- 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.

#1 - If you want AOM to automatically configure itself for DirectIP, add the following line to the Age of Mythology shortcut:

AddressServer=”repeater.aom.eso.com”

This will cause AOM to automatically configure your external IP address information any time you select a DirectIP or LAN game (by querying the ESO Address Server.) If you want to host games behind a router, NAT or firewall, you will also need to map/open UDP port 2301 to the host machine or place the host machine on the DMZ.

OR

#2 - If you want to define/override your external IP address manually, add the following line to the Age of Mythology shortcut:

OverrideAddress=”X.X.X.X”

This option is for advanced users who don’t have a public internet connection to ESO, or don’t want the game to attempt to contact the servers at all. Replace X.X.X.X with the external IP address of your machine. For instance, if your machine has an internal “fake” IP address of 10.10.0.1, but an external “real” IP address of 208.100.50.5, you would add OverrideAddress=”208.100.50.5” to your AOM shortcut. If you want to host games, please map/open UDP port 2301 to the host machine or place the host machine on the DMZ.

I'm having this exact same problem. Will it freeze when
ESO starts working again? Or is this a new problem that I
never had before the patch?

I can no longer connect to ESO after I pathed up with the AoM update from the Start menu. It just freezes when connects to ESO...

EDIT: Never mind... its just REAAALLLY slow. Takes about 3 minutes to connect.
