If you have any problems installing NE please check this thread first and if your Problem has not come up sofar post in THIS thread.

Napoleonic Era for The Asian Dynasties:

before asking anything check thiese points:
You need:
a clean version of AoE3 with no mods installed
+ TWC and TAD and the 1.01a patch
AoE3 and add ons have to be legally purchased and thus not cracked, NE does not support cracked versions.

Arrow I cannot install NE!
if you have Vista Spoiler:

just give it a right click and chose to install as administrator and it will install normally

by masskiller

if that does not work try this:

Quote:
In My Documents>Age of Empires 3, You need to grant all permissions.

In Program Files>Age of Empires 3, You need to have allowed "special permissions".

and if that didn't help either continue:
Quote:
I think that it took me a few repeat installations before it installed properly on my computer.

Still, check the permissions one more time:
-under "groups or user names", there is one selection that says "users(YourName-PC/users), check to see that all the permissions (especially full contol, modify, and write) are allowed for this name.
solution by Fig Newton


if you have a Mac Spoiler:

You need the latest patches of AoE3 and its expansions to install.



Arrow I can only create HCs of some civs of which none is new.
AI folders Spoiler:

Delete the CONTENT of the 3 AI folders found in my documents/my games/Age of empires 3 (this does no harm to your game exept that the ai won't tell you things like "this time i'll beat you" or "oh youve tried out a higher difficulty level than last time we met") and reinstall NE



Arrow some units are stuck under ground and just the Hat/ shield shows, Units are stuck in a silly animation.

check if the above problems aplied, check if you have both TAD and TWC installed becasue some models are from TWC.

For NE Vanilla you need patch 1.09 it does not work on other patches.
how to install Patch 1.09 Spoiler:


In order to install Patch 1.09 you need a clean installation of Vanilla 1.00, you can check your version ingame by main menu- options- game info.

if you have a higher version than 1.09 installed you won't be able to install the patch, in this case you have to uninstall aoe3(and if you had them installed : TWC and TAD) and delte everything that remains from the game(exept maybe the savegame or the scenario folder;) )
now you can reinstall aoe3 (if you have sufficient HDD you should backup this folder now after installing aoe3) and apply the 1.09 patch to it. if you still wan't to play aoe3 with expansions you can rename the aoe3 NE folder and give the backup the proper name, that way you can install the Expansions into this folder.



Arrow I cannot uninstall NE!

NE comes with a uninstaller, which you can find by simply looking for a NE folder in your start menu. After running the uninstaller you will also have to delete the content of the AI folders mentioned earlier.

For Vista there`s an easier (for me) way to do it, just give the exe file (NE)
a right click and select, install or run as administrator and that will do

Even though I have both TWC and TAD, and I deleted the AI contents, the Italian pikeman still flies through the air.

Isn't it a shame for the NE Team, that another mod team has to do their job? Devil (ok, sure sure - we are also part of NE, but ... you know Mr. Green)

Wasn't it something that you installed both the demo and the beta at the same time?

Am I the only one who has a flawless run? lol

In that case Devil

as I said for 100000000 times, when I install the beta on a clean version, there isn't any new thing (no new HC, new units for the old civs, etc) With the demo & beta, I have all of these, but most of the new civs can't get shipments or anything else from the HC.

That is right, the beta does not contain the changes for the old civs. But can't you do without them if you can get shipments from the new ones?

the new units/techs for the old civs aren't a problem, but the fact that the new civs can't get cards is awful.
