Well I went out a bought two games AOE III and Fear. I've been having alot of fun with both games on singleplayer. But it seems when I go to play on the Lan with my son with AOE III the problems start. We have started 5 lan games with 3 to 8 player maps. We have only finished 2 games out of the five though. I have had a OUT OF SYNC Error 1 time and CTD 2 times. I do not seem to have any problems in sigleplayer however. On the 2 systems we are playing on the spec's are very close. (See sig) Both have Win Xp Pro w/sp2, up dated drivers as of today. though as I am the server it seems like the problem is coming from my computer.?. Anyone else playing online or Lan games without problems? I did patch both games with the new patch as well. Just seems strange..
