    Like the other people posting here, the game crashes when I startup. I’m using the Steam version and I am running windows 10 as well. I’ve tried uninstalling, deleting the folders and installing in a new location. Still crashes.

    I can play as guest I think.

    I do notice that when I start the game and it’s going to crash I hear a quick beep tone.

    Sorry to hear you’re having problems running the game.

    If this game loads if you use the quest account, but not with your username you profile might have become corrupted. Could you rename the \My Games\AoW3 folder to \My Games\AoW3_Bak and try starting the game again?

    Also make sure your windows user account has full \My Games\ folder permissions.

    that wasn’t it (corrupted profile).

    It is the latest patch seems kinda buggy and crashy.

    I can get it working by setting compatibility, running as admin and unchecking the DPI button on a shortcut to the game. Or by running as guest.

    What also works is running the game in debug mode. You can set this in the Age of Wonders III launcher (under the Misc. tab)

    We’re currently looking into the problem!
