My brother and I have a PC and a Mac, and we want to play Age of Empires 2. Is the multiplayer compatible between the two?

Are you asking about AOE2 only or any AOE? – Nick T Dec 27 '11 at 19:41
It's really strict about having the same version when you play PC/PC, so unless the Mac verson was kept exactly in line with the PC version then I doubt it. – Matthew Read Dec 27 '11 at 19:44
i am asking about aoe2 gold edition. actually it does not matter. the conquerors or aoe2 age of kings or simple aoe2 – Ahmet Gulden Dec 28 '11 at 8:44

Yes, you can play AoE2 over a LAN with a Mac and a PC.
