I picked up the expansion for AOE3 "The War Chiefs" and I keep getting a message that it is unable to load certain XS files or something like that and what happens is the computer generated players never start they just stand around waiting for you to find them and thats about it.....kinda pathetic when you think of how well the rest of the game is performimg.......I forgot to mention that it doesn't matter if your nomad or not ....the same thing happens. In the campaign it gets totally useless when I get to the "Crossing the Delaware".....I get the same message and although the map shows it will not reveal any players or buildings ??????? really weird.... So is this a bad disc or are others having the same problem.:mad: :mad: :mad: Blackjaxe

First of all try reinstalling it. Make sure it's the automatic installation and not the manual. You did buy this in the shop's right? Not illegally?

Hi Riot, thanks for the speedy reply. I have already e-mailed a reply but I'll post here as well. I purchaed the game from a retailer here in Canada named Future Shop on December 27th of this year. I had problems right from the start so I used my Control Panel uninstall feature and did a fresh install....same problems....and I used the auto install......maybe its just a bad disc.....might have lost$20 if thats the case.

Since i have limited knowledge on this error as it is so rare, the only thing i can recommend you to do is check the official FAQ on the AgeCommunity site which can be found here or better still make a new topic explaining your problem in the official WarChiefs Technical Forum here where an official ES employee will try and help you. Sorry i couldn't be of any further assistance. Good luck.

[ATTACH]54229[/ATTACH]I hope this works, I did a screenshot of the error, if anyone has any knowledge it would save me $20.....no big deal really. But someone else might have the same issues. Blackjaxe

I have a idea, would it be possible for someone to copy this particular file and send it to me....I could then overwrite the bad file and it should solve my problems......let me know? Blackjaxe

Like i said, your best bet is to ask on the official technical forums on www.agecommunity.com. Asking for a file to be sent to you is a nono. For all we know (I'm not saying it's true) you could of have the game sent to you and not bought the real thing.

Finally got it working.....it seems that some of the downloaded custom maps had corrupted my registry and I needed to uninstall and do a roll-back and reboot then a fresh install and it worked.......whoopee. Seems that downloading custom maps can affect the upgrade, at least it did in my case. Blackjaxe
