I recently bought AOE-III. The problem is the game refuses to run at 1024 X 768, the setting to which it has defaulted. Only when I edit the C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\Users\newprofile.xml file and set the setting as <Setting Name="optiongrfxres">800 x 600</Setting>, the game runs. Otherwise I get no error message, when I try to start, I can hear the sounds, but the video does not show up before editing as above. I have all the latest drivers and latest directx. see my sig for the config, what could be the problem? Thanks.
