Question about Microsoft Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties for Windows
I downloaded the trail version and it played the first time but then every i tried to load it the screen stops just before you normally get a chance to pick which game you want to play, so i got the full game and loaded it and played it once and again same problem wont load again, i have a new laptop with plently of space and the fact it worked once i cant figure out what is wrong, hope someone can help me
Age of Empires 3 requires a decent computer to run. If im correct in understanding what you are saying, you graphics card may not be up to date. This is what happend to me on several games. All i had to do was update my video card drivers and it worked.
The recommended requirements are:
- Microsoft Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP
- 512 MB of RAM
- 2.0 Ghz CPU
- 128 MB 3D video card
- 1.5 GB of extra free hard disk space
- 32x CD-ROM drive
- DirectX 9.0c (important)
- DirectX 8.0 compatible sound card
- 56 kbps Internet connection for online play
If you PC has all of the above or better, it should work perfectly.
If you do not have those requirments, download a 3D render that acts as a card for your computer, making your computer play games it orignally cant handly. I recommend "Swiftshader". Just type in google and go to there site, and download a demo. their are harldy any restictions on it apart from a splash logo in the side. when you extract, place the
"d3d8", and the "d3d9" files in the root (main folder) of the game. Then run!
This method is good if you have a good amount of ram (more then the game requirements)
HOPE IT HELPED!!!!!

Try downloading the latest drivers for your video card and make sure that the video card is in the suported list of the game.U said that the game worked once.May be your processor or some part of the chipset might be overheating while running the game.This generally happens when the chipset [motherboard] is facing any IC errors. Also plz post if the Game alone is freezing or the entire system?
Download any free diagnostic tools like "sisoftsandra" or "Everest" and run the bench mark tests.Check if the system is freezing at any particular test.This way u can fiure out whats wrong.U can download these from here : http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/?dir=dload&location=sware_dl_3264
