Step 1: Open “” previously downloaded then Launch Steam Client.

Step 2: Goto Games Library then right press Age of Empires 2 HD > Properties > Local Files > Press Browse Local Files

Situation 1: If you only see “player0.hki” in there, all you have to do is extract “player0.hki” from any player in “” then replace the one inside your “Profiles” folder. Done!

Situation 2: If you see many player profiles such as (player0.hki, player1.hki, player4.hki, player13.hki) – simply sort files by “Date modified”

From the example above it’s obvious that “player4.hki” is the one that needs to be replaced and to do that extract “player0.hki” from “” to your desktop and rename it “player4.hki”. Now copy and paste it to “Profiles” folder then replace the existing one. Done.
