AOE3 and AOM tools for installing your mod

The AOM, AOE3 Installer and Back it Up for AOE3

I was just looking through the downloads section and i nticed a lot of people ask where does this and that go and what folder.
So I made this, it only took me a few minutes and it works with AOM and AOE3
Its the simplest installer ever just place your files in a folder named Install Folder and it will be installed for you
Just place a folder named Install folder in with the program and the program will copy it to microsoft games when the program is run.

So for AOE3 a proto mod could be installed just by running this if its placed in Install Folder\Age Of Empires III\Data

Or in AOM a random map a random map by running this when its placed in Install Folder\Age of Mythology\RM

So you just include this little exe in the zip folder with the files in a folder named Install Folder.
And best of all in a zip folder the installer is only 60kb meaning it hardly takes up any space at all.
It would even work with huge mods and it only 60kb.
And please rate it, it didnt take long but still id like to know what ye think and dont be afraid to use it with your creations.

Its also a standalone exe meaning theres no extra dll files or anything like that just the exe on its own.

Also in the zipped folder for AOE3 is Back it Up
This Simply works by copying the xml files in the data folder to a folder named backup in the same folder as the actual program. This is usefull to include in the zip as an uninstaller. Just tell the person to run it BEFORE they run the installer and it will copy their original data files into backup. This means that if they want to uninstall the mod later they can just put the files in backup back into the data folder as most mods revolve around the proto.xml and techtree.xml


You can use this with your mods if you want along with the installer as they are both each around just 60kb in a zipped folder

pftq You must not use this to install RMs or other files that belong in MY DOCUMENTS > MY GAMES >...

You should fix or note that otherwise.

Installing maps in the main game directory will cause Out of Sync for online play.

Arabian Nights How exactly does it work? I put a mod into the Install folder, and ran the program. It just popped up and said the intall was finished, just like it did when I ran it before. Does this mean it worked?
