View Full Version : AOE 3 Crash During Startup

July 11th, 2009, 08:14 PM
Hey All,

I installed a patched no cd version of AOE 3 through wine. When I start it thought, The initial title display comes up as the game prepares to launch full screen. Screen goes black (just like on windows) except rather than bringing me into the game, I get an error message

"Age of Empires 3 Has encounterd a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvieience"

Any suggestions on diagnosing the problem? I'm fairly new to linux (See my first ever user post and have a little laugh) But with some instruction Ill be able to figure out whatever you throw at me. (Note: I have yet to use the Konsole... which im assuming is where you type in these commands i keep seeing in the threads) (me--> n0000b)
