How to Play Age of Empires II HD with a Crack from Reloaded
Age of Empires II HD is a remastered version of the classic real-time strategy game that was released in 2013 by Microsoft Studios. The game features improved graphics, sound, and multiplayer modes, as well as all the original campaigns and expansions from Age of Kings and The Conquerors.
However, if you want to play the game without buying it from Steam, you will need a crack that bypasses the Steam and CEG protection. One of the most popular cracks for Age of Empires II HD is from Reloaded, a group of hackers who have cracked many other games. In this article, we will show you how to install and use the crack from Reloaded to play Age of Empires II HD on your PC.
Step 1: Download the Game and the Crack
The first step is to download the game and the crack from a reliable source. You can find many torrent sites that offer both the game and the crack, but make sure you scan them for viruses before opening them. Alternatively, you can download them from MegaGames, a website that provides game fixes and trainers. Here are the links:

The game file is about 2 GB in size, while the crack file is about 10 MB. You will need a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract them.
Step 2: Install the Game and the Update
The next step is to install the game and the update on your PC. To do this, follow these instructions:
Open the game file and run setup.exe.
Follow the installation wizard and choose your preferred language and destination folder.
Wait for the installation to finish.
Open the crack file and copy all the contents to your game install directory (usually C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Age2HD).
Replace any existing files when prompted.
The crack file contains a fixed launcher.exe and a steam_api.dll file that will allow you to run the game without Steam. It also contains a text file with patch notes for the update v2.7, which fixes some bugs and adds some features to the game.
Step 3: Play the Game
The final step is to play the game. To do this, follow these instructions:
Run launcher.exe from your game install directory.
Choose your resolution and other settings.
You can now enjoy Age of Empires II HD with improved graphics and sound, as well as online multiplayer modes. However, keep in mind that this is an illegal way of playing the game, and you may face some issues or risks such as:
The game may not work properly or crash on some systems.
The game may not be compatible with future updates or expansions.
The game may be detected by anti-virus software or firewalls as malicious.
