Your problem is the Regestry file. You made a copy of your Vanilla game? So your computer cant tell the WOL exe where to find the DATAPY.BAR Because you startet the Exe file from the copy.wep555lo wrote:OMG!!! Thanks for the solution! Eventually your solution works for me. i had the same problem as yours. but my AOE is not the steam version.Julien wrote: Hi everyone !
First of all I would like to congratulate the creators of age of empire war for liberty. It 's a dream to find a big mod for this old game thank you so much !
Unfortunatly I can't launch the game. The first problem was "Initialization failed. Could not loas DATAPY.BAR".
So I right click on the icone of age of empire war fo liberty -> open file location -> data -> copy/paste "data.bar" in the file "age of empire 3 -> rename "data.bar" by "datapy.bar".
After that, when I want to launch the game a window with a red cross happen... I try to find the solution on the net but no result...
I have Age of empire complete collection on steam.
My friend have age of complete collection with a crack and they don't have any problem the game run correctly.
Please anybody can help me ?
Hopefully you'll be able get through with your start up issue.
