There are a few things I might have done strategically differently from you, such as casting serpents in the water to defend against his siege ships, or building a migdol and bringing out some chariot archers, or not buying spearmen before he reaches heroic, and buying them after... but that is small stuff.
The main thing I see here is you were playing against someone experienced at playing as Egyptian. You didn't get to classical until around 6 min, didn't get to heroic until about 20 and by that time he was already mythic. You need to get to classical by about 5:30 and heroic somewhere from 10-12 min (at least when playing against other egyptians, especially Ra). Generally taking a few extra TCs doesn't hurt either.
Basically your economy and slow aging were your biggest concerns to work on. There are lots of rec and guides to playing eggy with BOs etc. A couple of other small tips I could give are to actually consume your livestock before farming, and cast prosperity a bit earlier to get rich before you start a major farming operation.
Anyway, don't feel bad. The guy you were up against was really good

Thanks Titan. And no, I don't feel bad...I know there is a LOT of stuff I need to work on...I'm just somewhat worried because I'm able to take down Hard AI in a 1v1...yet on ESO....it's like I'm handcuffed.
For Aom TT (.rcx) games, they go under the savegame file under my documents/microsoftgames/AOM/Savegame.
For vanilla games (.rec) they go in the one under program files.
To record games you have to go to options and check off the box.
Chimera, I know the feeling. I have found myself aging embarassingly late online a few times too. Untill recently I had a bad wireless internet connection so mostly played the computer. I recently played someone as greek. They beat me in under 20 mins. Next game the computer rematched me with the same person and he typed "You again? You sucked too much last time." and resigned.
The AI does not evolve strategies the way people do, and although it is very good at micromanaging economy, it does not manage battles, use god powers, or use general strategy as well as human players do.
