With all the talk about the save game error problem does anyone have a problem when playing DM against the computer the game crashes to the desktop after a few minutes playing. It has happened in 1/2 my games and maybe 1/4 of my RM games.

For me it was a similar solution i.e. getting the latest drivers for my video card and using Dirext X (use version 7, not 8, I installed 8 with no worries but a lot of people have had problems with that alone).

I also uninstalled the games and reinstalled them into c:\age of empires, rather than c:\program files\age of empires. This was some advice Daruis sent me after contacting MS and that's what they told him, though why the directory you install it into makes a difference I don't know.

Anyway it helped a bit but it still kicks out to the desktop on saved games when you try to reload them, but at least it hasn't kicked out mid game for a while.

Has anyone had the game crashed by the Medusa cheat? (Single player.) I type in the cheat, the villager appears, then when he is killed and is about to turn into a Black Rider... cut to the Windows desktop with the music still playing.

Funny thing is, this happened only with the cheat. Scenarios with medusas were not a problem. This was without the patch.

Tried all the stuff so maybe it's my PC. NOthing wrong with it Intel Pent 466, 32 Ram, Win ME. I will just keep putting up with it. Doesn't matter that much because the Zone is way more funner.

Leper:

At the risk of sounding like wedsaz, I just haven't had time to play on the Zone these days. Should be back in a couple of weeks. Since my free time comes in 30-minute spurts, I mostly play SP these days - improving my tower building and playing the RoR campaigns (just started Ave Caesar). For some unknown reason the "save game" bug is being kind to me.

Say hi to Baby Leper for me.
