Sorry to Interrupt everybody,

My profile has disappeared from Age of Empires 2 and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to restore it. My Age of Empires profile has great sentimental value to me as it was present during some important times and changes during my life. Games helped me through some tough times and were played when I was around people who I will likely never see again. This may sound stupid, but I have heard that the AI remembers and learns from the player and consider the profile itself thus to have an imprint of some people who will probably not be seen again.

I was playing Age of Empires 2 when the power cut out to my computer. When I started up Age of Empires 2 again my profile was gone. I tried starting another profile with the same name but all the progress single player campaigns were gone! Oddly enough the saved games were still present.

I tried deleting the new profile and uninstalling the game with the "do not remove user related files such as saved games and maps" option on. When I reinstalled the game the profile was still gone. I looked in the folder and under the folder "learn" in Age of Empires 2 there is still a folder called matt.uh (matt being the name of my old profile). I hope this means that the profile is still in there somewhere and savable. Any help in restoring this profile, or information on where I could find this information would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I use Windows 7

Was the HD Edition really that bad. Aside from the awkward replacement of cliffs, and some minor oddities, I don't really see anything wrong with it. Anyone has a word?

  • Badass Spaniard: El Cid Campeador. In-game, it's possible to win almost the entire El Cid campaign by using only the eponymous character and a few monks to convert buildings and capture relics, without ever suffering a single casualty.

Badass Spaniard has been renamed to Dashing Hispanic. The trope requires some necessary characteristics, like being a rogue Anti-Hero of wit and charm. There is not enough context to tell if it fits here.

El Cid doesn't really fit either, according to the new definition. In story he's a knight who fights for different leaders, but is generally a fairly clean-cut hero without most of the characteristics of the new trope. What made him badass were primarily his impressive in-game stats.
