WE'RE BACK!
 
  01 September 2017

After a period of downtime for about two weeks we are back! Downtime was due to limitations of our community hosting. AOEO4EVER.net is limited to a certain monthly bandwidth (site traffic) and increasing activity has resulted in exceeding this limit. The next few days we are looking into downsizing the community a bit or see how donations develop.

Besides that, there is awsome news! During the downtime I was contacted by FireSinger and he send me a few pictures of our beloved game being playable in offline mode by server emulation. Now we all know Project Penelope, but that was based on emulating the original gameplay. The work done by FireSinger is totally based on true gameplay and emulates a game server. So basically, if you always wanted to play Age of Empires Online while being in the backseat of the car on your way to grandma you will be able to do so soon. And even better, FireSinger claimed to make his work an open source project which we all can extend.

Edit: Made changes should now prevent downtime

8) sweet, although i love the idea of celeste it still has one critical fault... the reliance on a server. If i understand this correctly would we be able to play through the single player campaigns with a local server? (hopefully since this will be open source someone out there can also get lan multiplayer to work with this too, but thats just me jumping the gun! :D ) Goodluck guys!

From what I understand you are correct. Or you can choose to play offline as a single player or one can host his / hers own private server for friends and family.

Firesinger sent me a video of some gameplay. Hope I find the time to publish it next weekend
