Question about gaming

Hello,
We have two computers at our house and we want to play a strategy game (in ex. age of empires etc.) against each other. Questions:
1. Would we have to buy the same game twice?
2. What would be the best way to do this? Is there a direct way to connect the computers with a cable or would on-line be the best way?

If Age Of Empires needs a CD during game play, then Yes for # 1.If not use the same CD, But I believe the host of the game play of you two, needs the CD for play.

You could read the instructions to see if a direct cable is available for use if not, you have to use the online play.

Please rate my solution and Happy Gaming!

Im having trouble playing with my mate and sister but we are all in the same house on age of empires rise or rome how can i play with them?


First of all you have to plug all your computers on a router using ethernet cable, then you go in the game and hit "Multiplayer" then you will probably have the option "LAN" or "play on a local network" click on wherever it says Local and one of you create a game. Then the others do the same, without creating a game, and they should be able to see the game you created.

You need to keep the Age of Empires install disk (usually labeled "Play Disk" or is just Disk 1 in older games) in your disk drive while you play the game.

Can ''Age of Empires'' run on a netbook via SD card?


you can if ur advent is running a windows format, if it is a linux based, you will need a linux copy, but yes you can! you have to install the game to the sd card, just like you would to a regular hdd. I have the original warcraft and warcraft 2 on an sd card, that i use with my ASUS mini....www.computereworld.com

When i install age of empires, it installs to 100% and freezes.


Explore the disc, and on AOESETUP.exe, set the compatibility to Windows 95. It should install fully. Now, if only I could get my computer to stop with the BSOD when I exit the game..

Age of empires 3 problem


The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.
