I have the gold edition of it and everytime I connect to multiplayer, it sends me to the menu and it works for about 2 seconds and it freezes, the music still plays.
If your running Win7 or Vista: Run as administrator, compatability mode for WinXP, and make sure Windows firewall is set to allow EAW.
Still no, when I open up task manager, it says not responding.
Includes both the ram fix and multiplayer fix.
It says I don't need to apply the update because of my gold edition.
Hmm, you could try this unofficial patch. Empire at War EAW and FOC multiplayer Fix
It's what I used when I was having multiplayer menu issues.
Not very busy, no games are availible, everytime I join a lobby there may be 2 names then they just disappear. Must be my connection.
