    I just tried playing Age of Empires 3 again today after getting it a while ago but when I tried to play it, it just closed about 5 minutes in. This happens no matter what level I try. I'm playing it windowed on a Macbook.

    Can this be fixed? I really want to play the game.

    I used to get that in AOE2, and perhaps also in 3.

    Do you have hotcorners for exposé and Dashboard? Try turning those off.

    How come those would affect the game?

    No clue, but I found when I was hitting the corner of the screen it was giving me problems.

    Did you try it? Did it help?

    Unfortunately that didn't work. :(

    If I have iChat open and I get an IM, AOE3 closes on me....?

    With the demo, the only time the game quit on me randomly was during one of the cutscenes in the campaign. Only happened once.

    I guess you should make sure nothing is running in the background. Of course, send off an e-mail to MacSoft. Maybe the game could use a patch.
