Age of Chivalry: Hegemony is unofficial mod for AoE II, which total converse Age of Empires II: the Conquerors into the Western and Central Europe 1100-1500 AD.
"Although the graphic changes are been extensive, we've also gone for a
total revamp of the gameplay. We've replaced all of the 18
civilisations, there are many new units, new, civilisation-specific
buildings (the Princely Court, the Assembly Hall and the Guild Hall) as
well as over a dozen new technologies, policy decisions, a mercenary
system, new combat dynamics, and even an extensive history section. Yes,
that's right: we're replacing all the civilisations in the game with new ones!
Wider support for scenario-only objects is included, and to showcase these a multi-scenario campaign is included with the mod itself. Multiplayer and random map balance has been tweaked, a rudimentary AI has been included, and with the new civilisations joining the mix, the European battles are even better!"
Installation of mod, gameplay, uninstallation.
What does not
Sometimes annoying scrolling bug (screen scrolls leftside and game is unplayable).
What was not tested
Everything is just like stock Age Of Empires II, the same bugs, same things work.

To get multiplayer working you have to use by now the directplay libraries from microsoft, still (since 2006) no open source libraries for direct play that include libraries to open sockets and close to play games, so install winetricks:
(in ubuntu/debian) sudo apt-get install winetricks
and then exec:
It will download the directplay libraries from microsoft and install them, that's all, tcp/ip will work with direct connect.
