Topic Subject:Game won't start after installing on dell i5 windows 10
posted 22 December 2019 11:22 AM EDT (US)
I haven't played AoM gold edition in more than 6 years. I found it recently and try to install it but it won't launch. I've tried compatibility troubleshooting and no success. Since I've found other games and had similar problems, I just downloaded patches and updates and fix them. With AoM I can't find seem to find the right update or patches for the job. At first it gave a message that I needed administration privilege but I change the properties to run the program as administrator but nothing happened, then I tried to run it in 640x480 screen with no success, disable fullscreen... nada. Can someone help with the issue? What exactly do I need?
Intel core i5-8300H CPU 2.30GHz RAM 8.00GB Windows 10 GeForce GTX 1050 Ver. 425.45

Try swapping the names of 2 files. I forget the name of the folder but if you do a search in the main game folder you should find it. The 2 files whose names you need to swap are
.gfx is their extension if I recall correctly.
Try that, you usually have to do this if you a nvidia video card.
