    Hey, i got a problem with the path for the Extended Edition. It says that the path chosen is not valid. I tried reinstalling everything, made sure i got MSCOMCTL.OCX, STDOLE2.TLB and msxml4.dll, editing the paths in the .ini directly but nothing seems to work. I used the progrom before, but i think it was the 2.0.0 version and it worked. https://i.imgur.com/aA1s9US.jpg

    I had my game path on rise of nations but it says not valid do you know a valid game path

    On RoN, is there any way to disable techs ,buildings, or units for only one nation?

    • Snake USA says:

      There is a way to do that in the script, but the feature is not in the Script Maker because it isn’t fair. IIRC in RoN’s scripting most things are disabled per player. So it should be possible to loop through all players and within that loop check if a player matches a certain condition (their player number, whether or not they’re human or AI, their nation) and disable techs, buildings, or units if the condition matches.

    I changed the paths in the ini file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Rise of Nations where the executable is located and the error log gives me “1.0.47F: Retail version of Rise of Nations not installed! Please install before using this program.” I also get a run-time error ‘429’: ActiveX component can’t create object dialog message and clicking okay closes the app.Thanks for the quick response.

    • Tom USA says:

      Also, I don’t know if it will help but the executables in the original game are rise and thrones.exe while the executables for the Extended Edition are named rise and patriots.exe.

    • Snake USA says:

      RoN Script Maker also requires the following libraries. If any are missing, they would give an error such as that. These should be installed with the full version installer, though. But just in case they weren’t, you can find copies for download online. The files go in your Windows system directory usually. For 64-bit Windows 7, it’s “C:\Windows\SysWOW64”.

      MSCOMCTL.OCX (most likely culprit)
      STDOLE2.TLB
      msxml4.dll

  5. Tom USA says:

    Please update it so it will recognize Rise of Nations Extended Edition. It crashes on startup for the re-release.

    • Snake USA says:

      Yes, I figured there might be problems with the new release of RoN. However, I have no interest in buying it right now. But if someone else wants to gift it to my Steam account, I will make sure to add support for the new version of RoN (and Windows 7 if necessary).

    • Snake USA says:

      Actually, you might try manually setting the RoN path using ronscript.ini. Instructions are in the FAQ.
