Hi, Everyone.  I have signed on here because I'm hoping one of you can help me help my son fix a problem with a new game he purchased.  He just bought Age of Empires III, and it keeps crashing on him after approx. 15 mins. of play.  I have looked on every forum I know to look on, with no luck.  I updated AOE III to the latest version and that did not help.  Reading discussion boards on other sites, this game appears to work fine for some and not so fine for others, using basically the same setup we have.  We have a 24" iMac, Intel Core2 Duo, with lots of space.  We also run the latest version of Mac OS Leopard.  I feel hopeful that there is a simple setting I can change in order to make this work.  When the game crashes, it just freezes up and he has to hold the power button down for a few seconds in order to turn off the computer.  Any suggestions you can make would be very much appreciated!  Thanks!

It's probably Leopard. If it is, just stay and pray. (for a new update)
