Topic Subject: A problem with player profile
posted 08-28-12 04:24 AM ET (US)   
Hello, everybody.

Recently I bought Ubisoft's Collector's Edition and I am really enjoying this great game, however the game soon started to crash when loading saved games.

I managed to find out the reason (that projectile thing, grrr) and that there is no clean solution for this, but before I got to this point I reinstalled the game. I only backed-up saved games, but I forgot about player profile.

When I reloaded a saved game in reinstalled game I could finish my current mission, but then, because there wasn't any player profile, the game doesn't let me continue with the next mission. I have to create a new player profile and start the campaign from the beginning.

Although the game is awesome I really don't feel like playing the campaign from start. Is there any solution to this? If not, I suppose I will have to play through the campaign again (although this time on easy level), but still, if there is some editor to 'plant' a player profile in AoE, that would be great. Or any other advice is already deeply appreciated.

I apologize if this problem has been posted before and solution already given. Would also appreciate a link to that topic, if it exists.

I think I better make a sticky with link to the 1.0b patch - it seems many people have this annoying issue.

1.0b patch

When installing make sure to double check the directory path btw.

Let us know if this patch works for you.

Uhm, thanks for the reply, but this is not what I was looking for. I know about this patch and everything.

I need to know if there is any way to create or import a player profile which already has several missions and campaigns done, so I can continue playing from the point I reached before I foolishly decided to reinstall the game (I did keep saved games, but not my player profile, alas.)

Start with the first mission, and use the cheat home run to win it. Keep doing this until you reach the mission of your savegame.

To use the cheat: Press enter in game, and type in: home run, and press enter again.

Sorry if I breach the rules with this post, I do not mean to, and I don't see any harm in posting a cheat for a game this old, and only for helping purposes.

As draganta said, use the cheat code.

But, but ... that would be cheating.


No, wait, this is exactly what I needed.

I am so used to never use cheat codes and trainers that this obvious solution never even crossed my mind.

Thanks a lot to everyone, off to play now.
