Multiplayer Edit

Rise of Nations features a highly customizable multiplayer mode. Up to eight players can play in a game with a variety of modes to choose from, with AI filling spots at the server host's choice. A new feature that was introduced into the game was the ability to use homemade scripts in online play. The scripts are able to be made in the built in script editor, and came with a pre-made script that disallowed silos.

On Microsoft Windows Rise of Nations uses the GameSpy matchmaking service, and also works with GameRanger.

On Mac OS X, Rise of Nations uses GameRanger as a matchmaking service.

The LAN networking, implemented on both platforms, provides a system for people on the same network to play together. There is also a Direct-IP option, allowing non-networked players to connect without the use of GameSpy.

Cross platform play is not supported between Windows and Mac users.

Port Forwarding Edit

To make sure that these ports are open or to open these ports, contact your network administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). If you are the administrator of the network, view the documentation that is provided with your networking software to determine how to open these ports.

Rise of Nations requires that the 34987/UDP DirectPlay port be open to play a Local Area Network (LAN) or Direct Internet multiplayer game.

In addition to this port, to play through GameSpy Internet Matchmaking the following ports must be open:
