I was wondering about dual installations of AE. Is it just as simple as doing a second installation in a different directory on my hard drive during the installation process? Are there any issues to be aware of with having/managing two versions of the game on one computer?
Actually it is even simpler than that in WITP and, I assume, in AE. Do one pristine installation and for mods, just copy the WITP folder to another directory (in vista I copy to my user directory), make the modifications you want, rename the folder and move it to wherever you want. I currently have a couple of PBEM games of RHS going each in its own separate folder. With modern hard drives there is plenty of space and you can save yourself a lot of confusion this way.
