Can't create a home city

Hey everyone. First off, I’m not sure if this is in the right forum or not, and if it’s not, please direct me where to go.

The other day I was cleaning out some old CD racks and came across my AOE III clamshell. I installed in on my computer and fired it up. The tutorials ran alright and I started the campaign. Once I finished the first campaign, the screen went black. Nothing came back up after victory. I exited the game and re-entered only to find progress wasn’t saved.

I’m also having an issue creating a home city. I can’t… I go to the window, select the name/civilization/ type of match, hit save and then everything is grayed out and I can’t select a city to play a match with.

Windows 10

Any suggestions or times would be most appreciated!


Check you User folder. Everything related to savegames is under Users/(your username)/Age Of Empires 3. It should give you much needed info.
