Age of Empires III on Snow Leopard
Posted 13 October 2009 - 01:27 PM
Can anyone out there with a full version of the game let me know if this works OK on their Snow Leopard machine?

my problem with AoE 3 and Snow Leopard concerned the FRENCH full version, not the trial version
I found a solution on internet and it worked fine. I suppose this could also do for other language versions although I did not try it out!
Do as follows:
Click on AoE3 file, but don't open>Show Package Contents->Resources->GameData FR(TR for US version)->FONTS->Open the file Fonts2.xml with TextEdit
Change the first line of this file as follows:
<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
that's all. For me this worked.
if you are using another language version, I suppose the file "GameData FR" should be replaced by your language version.
In any case, keep a backup copy of the original file. You never know...

This is a post I found on another site by BernardG, and I wanted to share this because this seems to be the problem that you'r having
Hope this helps
