    Hey, I'm having a problem with age of empires 3. It' s connected to my samsung 32" by hdmi, all works, latest update, but the game shows enormous fonts in the menus. Can' t read it. How can I change this?

    Could you post a screenshot?
    What resolution are you running the game in?
    What computer are you running it on? Could you try a different display to see if the problem happens without the HDTV plugged in?

    I run AoE3 on a 24" 1920x1200 external via DVI on my Macbook (with a pitiful GMA 950, coincidentally). No problems.

    Edit: BTW i try to play the game on my 32" Samsung HD ready tv

    I'm having exactly the same issue. Samsung 50", mini DVI to DVI, DVI to HDMI from a Mac mini. My conclusion at this point is my Mac was perfect until I installed a Microsoft game. /sigh
