Campaign Mode. Hard difficulty only. The final time will be the one shown by the In-Game timer. Game speed must be set at its default 1.5 or higher but cannot be lowered to 1.0 Player can increase the speed of the game while playing if they wish, as this will accelerate the in-game timer as well. Any pausing, even accidental, will disqualify the run. Replays from saved games are not allowed, only live capture of the score is acceptable. Age of Empires II and Age of Empires II HD Edition are both allowed. Age of Empires The Definitive Edition is not allowed. Unofficial patches, such as UserPatch v1.4, are not allowed.
