Age of Empires: Pocket PC Edition uses Install Shield, and installs like any other standard Windows Mobile based Pocket PC application. Due to large size of the game, installs are divided into five pieces: main game, campaigns, scenarios, user manual, and intro video. Only the main game need be installed to play. But to access the other components (e.g. scenarios, campaigns, etc.), they must each be installed separately using Install Shield. For Windows Mobile based Pocket PC devices with memory card slots, the game or any of the components can be installed on a memory card to free up main memory. Individual components can also be deleted after installation to save space.
1 Main game only 9.8MB
2 Campaigns 5.1MB
3 Scenarios 1.2MB
4 User manual 0.3MB
5 Intro video 4.0MB
A complete installation with all components takes up 20.4MB. Saved games typically require 150K to 300K each; however, large campaigns can require upwards of 700K per save.
