Age of empires 2 wasn't really designed for mac type computers so i'm afraid it won't work on there sorry about that :)

SOURCE: Bought Age 3 for the mac (new macbook pro 2010).

This could be happening for several reasons. The good news is that is usually doesn't spell disaster for your MacBook. You might try making sure your hard drive is tidy. You can use the Apple Disk Utility Tool for this. Also, it's always a good idea to keep your Apple CODEC up to date. Another thing you might try (a lot of people underestimate this one) is to get a good cleaner for your optical drive/laser.

If parallel or Bootcamp for intel Macs is installed on my MAC, can Age of Empires: Rise of Rome be played with out a CD in CDROM drive?


Yes, just download the file for Age of Empires: Rise of Rome as if you were on a PC, then install it through Bootcamp. However It may be cheaper just to buy the game because Bootcamp is not exactly cheap. If you want to do this for multiple games then Bootcamp would be the way to go.

Age of Empires 2: The Conquerors will not load.


my friend when you install the game your installing to a program that is not a stand-alone computer. In order to erase that message, download a crack version of that program. Here's the link Age of Empire 2 just click the download button/.
Thanks

Age of empires 2 for mac doesnt work on my user


I bought my white mac book exactly a year ago... so its still pretty new I guess.... heres what you do
1. install "age of empires 2 1.0.6 update" from this link:
http://www.destineerstudios.com/support/aoe2.html

2. right when starting the game, hold the command or the apple button and a option screen pops up.  It will now allow you to select "force 256 colors" due to new update.  Check that box and press play.  some forums say you also need to select "don't play intro movies" or select don't change resolution or something like that but I did not have to do that.  So I can also watch intro movies... yay.   All I did was select "force 256 colors".  Hope that helps.  It took me an hour searching online to find the solution.
That should fix the problem.
Some forums say that I have to  change resolution 640 x 480 as well but I did not have to say that either.
