Hey all, since the beta is over now we have closed down the beta specific forums. Don't freak out if you can't see it, it's not a glitch:)
We've just implemented a new version of our old forum ranks!
The new "Idle Villager" rank has some slightly limited abilities here in the forums, and they cannot post discussions or do things like post links or set a signature on their posts. When you have commented 3 times you'll reach the rank of "Scout Cavalry" and gain all the usual posting abilities! This is to help combat spam, and should not affect most of you, as you have likely already posted more than 5 times and have a higher rank:)
Check out the list of ranks here: https://forums.ageofempires.com/discussion/15139/forum-rank-system/p1?new=1
Bought a long time ago from GFWL. Doesn't work anymore. Help?
I had a sudden urge to play this game again, but whenever I try to play it, I get an "Initialization Failed" error. Is there some way to get around this error? Or is the only way to get it working again is to spend another $40 for a game I already own?
