View Full Version : Possible Direct3D Workaround (AoW:SM)

This is for those of us who can't get the game to load a map without crashing in Direct3D mode.

Start the game, press alt+enter to enter windowed mode then host/join a game. Then start and as soon as the map's been loaded successfully press alt+enter again (if you dislike windowed mode that is otherwise just play away) and voila! Enjoy AoW:SM in it's full Direct3D glory! :D

Turn 50 and it hasn't crashed yet :)

Thank you! I am going to give this a try tonight. I had tried this when I first got the game and after the crash my friends and I just set it to software and forgot about it, thinking it was a result of modern OSes not doing well with the game.
