question about win 7 64 bit compatability

#1KavalorPosted 6/21/2010 12:44:24 PM
Hey thanks for taking the time to read this. so ive tried all the choices it gives for the win7 64 bit compatibility, and every time i try to load the game it does load.. but theres no picture, i get the sound but theres just no image.

I read the FAQ but i didnt find anything in there relating to my problem. I used to play AoE 1 and 2 but started to play other games, now ive come back to AoE and wand to play this one, my specs are: Intel core 2 quad,processor Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz, 3.0 GB ram, win7 64 bit, 650gb hard drive, Nvidia 8800GT vid card,

i know my PC can run the game, and ive updated the drivers. Its just something to do with the image thats not coming though which i havent figured out yet. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I run this game on windows on my macbook. It definately works on windows 7.

If you have the correct drivers, you should be able to see the game; try updating them. I had a similar problem- but had to install the drivers off the CD that came with the computer again.

Yea I run it at max settings with infinite population mods and it runs perfect.
After using the patch I posted above I use these settings to run:
-Run in compatibility mode for XP service Pack 2
-Disabled visual themes
-Disable desktop composition
-Run as administrator

My Specs:
Win 7 x64
AMD Phenom II X4 810 2.6GHz
4 gigs DDR3
ATI Radeon HD 4850 PCI-E 16X 1GB

Asus M4A77TD PRO AM3 DDR3 AMD 770 Chipset CrossFireX Technology

Hey guys, I too am running win 7, but my question is that I have Warchiefs as well as regular game. Should I install patch before installing Warcheifs or after installing Warcheifs??

I patched it before installing The Warchiefs and it runs great with the specs I listed above.
