    For me, all the graphics are severely glitched up and I can't even see anything. I'm running it in Windows XP SP3 in a virtual machine on VMware Fusion on a Mac with a decent graphics card (ATI Radeon 2400 XT), 4 gigs of RAM, and 2.0GHz processor which can run other 3D games perfectly fine. I have 1 GB of RAM allocated to the virtual machine and both of the cores are enabled on it. Here are a few pictures of what I'm getting:

    Someone please tell me how to fix this, because it sounds like a pretty good game and I would like to actually play it...
    Also, I've been able to play Red Alert 3, Terraria, and Minecraft (yes, I know there's a Mac version but I wanted to test it) pretty smoothly. And before anyone says "Oh, use bootcamp," Ubuntu severely ruined any chances of me ever using it...

    how to fix age of empires graphic problem

    I guess you already fixed it or gave up but thought i leave the answer here incase someone came look for an answer....

    go to setting (in game setting) > options > graphics options

    set the Shader quality LOW and press ok

    i set my resolution to 1680x1050 works best for me

    running on Macbook pro, VM Fusion
