I downloaded the AoE III trial version for MAC OSX. (I'm running 10.6.1). The game works fine, but I cannot see any text. Any known remedies to this problem?


Thanks.

Perhaps the demo version doesn't have text?

Or check the game options if you have "text" box turned on.

I have the same problem. There is no text at all in the trial version. You can't see anything except blank buttons so how would you know where to turn the text on?

Contents->Resources->GameData FR->FONTS->Open the file Fonts2.xml
You have the folder open (usually Applications) and you see the AOE 3 icon.
Right click icon and select 'show package contents'
Another finder window will open, with a folder in it, called contents. Double click this.
Now double click the 'resources' folder
Then double click the 'Gamedata' folder
Double click the 'FONTS' folder
right click on fonts2.xml
Open with. Then select, 'Other'
Scroll down the programs till you see 'Textedit' and click on it.
Now click Open
Edit the file as directed
Do as follows:

Change the first line of this file as follows:
<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
and save it.

I found that the solution listed didn't work for me either.

Instead I tried playing around with the FONTS folder in the Resources folder. I ended up deleting it, that worked a treat. I wasn't even getting sound before but now i am.
