    AOE2

    What does it actually do then?

    I have it on both of my PCs both running XP Pro and have had no problems at all.

    Hmmm....tricky....
    Have tried comp. mode?
    I had it going at once..and with the patches installed.

    Maybe you should try to re-install the game..install the patch straight away..re-start..that is how I do it...and it is ticking on here....

    sucks

    I love that game and mine runs fine on xp pro but here is something that happened to me a while back and I I dont know what or why but I was having trouble with different programs acting that way and stuff that I know runs on xp because I had previously had it installed on the same machine prior ro a format? So what I did was a repair of my winxp pro not a reinstall a repair it wont change any installed programs but does fix some crap that happens for unknown reasons ( Ghost in the Machine) lol

    thats all I can think off to help

    good luck ;)

    hmmm. It might be some sort of graphics problem. update ur drivers or change ur screen resolution to 800x600 and see if that does anything for u.


    Do u guys play on the zone? if so what are ur handles?

    Haven't played on the zone for a while but am up for any games going if I'm about.

    I think I used the same name as here -> Ashboudj

    i suggest try installing a fresh copy of xp on your 2nd hd and see if aoe2 works or not. If it does work then there is probably a software conflict on ur current hd. If it still doesnt work then I suspect it is a hardware issue most likely with your graphics drivers.
