Hi everyone. I just stopped by to rant about this title. My son purchased this with his own money. We installed it and it would not run. The splash screen shows up and age3.exe shows up for a few seconds in the task manager and then shuts down. Shortly after that splash.exe shuts down as well.
Sooo, I made an image with Alcohol 120%, worked my usual magic and now it autoloads the image and starts up just fine. But what’s this? Install all the patchs and it WILL NOT START UP again, even with my just released fully updated version of 120. Don’t tell me this is an emulation conflict you ba***rds! I shut down every stinking program in the task list, removed all the other 27,342 different tricks to allow me to play (COSTLY) games that you have crippled with your stinking “protection”.
Well, here’s how effective your protection was: it took me less time to drain the magic through the series of tubes than it did to install your trash. Game works fine now. I begin to wonder: could it be possible that the expensive games in the shiny boxes on the shelf at Game Stop are not as good as some that one might stumble upon elsewhere?
If I was a game developer, I’d certainly be asking myself that question. Rant over.
