Age Of Empires - Gold Edition

Hi all,

I have bought the above game for a W98 pc. Its installed to the hard drive fine and loaded up the Rise Of Rome Expansion.

When the game is executed, it blanks the screen, the mouse stays visible and operable for about 10 secs and then it hangs the pc as if about to do a reboot except it doesn't. Nothing will get out of the hang except a power down.

I have tried the latest patch for the game and all drivers are up to date. The DX Diag has been used as suggested on some sites to slow down the hardware acceleration on some items (sound and video). This doesn't work either.

Can anyone help me out on this one? Be great if you could.

Many thanks

Have you tried any of these:

Not to hot on game problems, but they could be worth a try?

Hope this helps.

graphics, Direct X upgrades are available form the Microsoft - Windows update site.

Be pactient if you go to Windows update site as it takes about 5 mins just to get to small files accros before it can scan your pc.

yeah, tried both of those, will do updates to double check and will check out the parameters, cant say they worked too well, think it could be a grahics issue with drivers...

will post back when and if i hear more...

many thanks so far, P
