I have tried to download some rec games from AoTS at My Documents/My Games/Age of Mythology/Savegame. When I went to AoM, I couldn't open it. I never found the file. Did I do something wrong? A little while ago I was able to watch rec games. What am I doing wrong?

Do you believe in destiny? That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose? That the luckiest man who walks upon this earth is the one who finds... true love?

Look at the file extension...

.REC is for AoM

.RCX is for AoM:TT

.ZIP means you have to unzip it.

I am at patch 1.10. Isn't that the latest?

All my files are .rec BTW.

Do you have the original or the expansion? If you have the expansion, you need .rcx and they go in the My Games directory under My Documents.

Re-name them.
e.g
KG_NaturePhoenix(CFNaturePhoenix)VagaNeGGy_VagaMuNiChvs_Vaga Slamer_VagaOurk_VagaKenji.rcx

Rename to: AoTs_rply_1

You see, the names are way to long

Ill try remnaming them. But the rec games I used to have don't appear in the Recorded Games section, while they still remain in My Document/.../Savegame

Try going into your "my computer" and searching the .rec files all the files on yur comp in that format should show up. Or, search for .zip files and if you recognize any of the .zip files, extract them to your savegame folder in your AoM directory. GL!

My computer is really starting to piss me off.

  • I can't watch recorded games
  • Often times the screen turns blue when I play and the last sound I made repeats over and over
  • Other games I have keep freezing when the discs I have are in almost perfect condition

    Am I doing something wrong, or is it just my computer?

    ^^ Macho Oily Man

    Sounds like your comp.

    xentelian explained about the .rec games and where to put them. You may have placed them in the wrong folder.

    If your system meets the requirements for AoM, then you may need to update your drivers and / or OS. Driver updates from the online site for your Graphics Board, and your OS from MS's update site.

    Make sure you have enough space left on your hard drive and just generally clean up your system, run Disk Cleanup & Disk Defragmenter, use a spy ware removal tool to get the garbage out (like Adaware or Spybot - they're free).

    The graphics problem (blue screen and freeze up) may be caused by any (or a combination) of the above.

    We're not supposed to advertise here, so if you want email me for site URL's.
