Hi, I just installed Age of Mythology and I can't seem to play it anymore. It says "Initialization failed" right after the intro video.
I figured it out. I have a Laptop w/ ATI Mobility Radeon 9700. The max resolution of this card is 1280 x 800 x 32. I set the resolution on Age of Mythology to 1280 x 1024 x 32 last night and so that was beyond my video card's resolution. The solution is to start up Age of Mythology in "Video Safe Mode." Check out Microsoft's support page for info on this. (located on page 29 of the game manual).
Thanks a lot. You might have solved the problems of many who has this problem.
good job nickintx!
