Project Penelope version 1.2
Project Penelope is the offline version of Age of Empires Online. The project was founded by a community member who released a version of Age of Empires Online from it's beta days which had a scenario editor built in. This editor allowed you to place units, make maps, and gave you a way to play the Age of Empires Online. Now Project Penelope supports the final version of Age of Empires Online and some of it's features. All six civilizations can be played with the right technologies, units can be customized with vanity gear and even some original quests can be played. All this still in offline mode only.

Step 1: Extracting download
After the download of the torrent-file finishes you'll have a new ZIP-file. This is a compressed file which you can extract by using for example winRAR.
Step 2: Copying the files from the download directory
After you have extracted the ZIP-file you have a new directory with two sub-directories:
- Penelope 1.2: This is the actual game directory
- My documents: This is an optional directory to use if you haven't played Project Penelope before
Copy the directory 'Penelope 1.2' to your favourite game directory, for example C:\Games\.
Optional step is to copy the 'Spartan' directory found under 'My documents' to the your documents-folder. You only need to do this if you haven't played / installed Project Penelope before.
