    Even if I can't help you with this problem exactly, I'm sure someone else could, but we won't know until we have more details. Could you tell us about your hardware, drivers, any programs you use to run AoE, and any error messages? Thanks.

    Hi friedeggs.

    I recommend using PlayOnLinux instead of Wine, because AoE3 is one of its supported games.

    Regards.

    Exactly. PlayOnLinux is a superb resource for using Windows programs. Its installation scripts have worked better for me than Crossover (surprisingly).

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.
