Game Crashes after loading SplashScreen

Fri Oct 04, 2019 6:42 am

Hi, I recently installed the mod and after it loads the splash screen it crashes to desktop. Please help, I want to play the game. My operating system is Windows 8
This is the error report I found in the Event Viewer for age3y.exe

I've got no idea. But I vaguely remember that this happens when you install wol on a not fully up-to-date aoe3 with all expansions. I could be wrong though.

Hello

This happens because you are using Windows 8, which is known to produce this error when the game's executable is patched with the Unhardcode Patch. Wars of Liberty is using the Unhardcode Patch. Without that Patch, a very big amount of the features implemented in Wars of Liberty would be impossible to achieve.

Here are the best solutions you can consider:
- Set compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3.
- If the mod still crashes after changing compatibility, install VC 2015, both the x86 and the x64 versions (ignore the x64 if your Win8 is a 32bits OS)
- If the mod still crashes after installing VC2015, please join us on our Discord server where plenty of people can help you.

But the best solution is, without any doubt, migrating to Windows 10, with which there is no single problem. However it seems to be too big of an investment for just a mod, so the choice is entirely yours.
If yes, no. If no, well, yes.

Thanks for the quick response, I've done that, and it didn't work. It seems the only solution is to migrate to Windows 10.
