Demo Campaigns for AoE/RoR

The three demo campaigns combined from the AoE/RoR demos. You can copy the files in the "demo campaigns" folder to the "campaign" folder in your AoE directory so that they appear in their respective games. (note that the "First Punic War" campaign for RoR requires 1.0a; if launched with 1.0, the game will promptly crash.) (direct download)
