I have this problem.. i installed aoe3 with no problems, then The Warchiefs, and when i try to install The Asian Dynasties i get an error : 1305 and it says art5.bar is missing or to make shoure i have it. Its pretty annoying because i tried to make a blank document and renamed it to art5.bar, it installed with no problems, but ingame had A LOT of black spots when playing, etc

SO.... i was wondering... can someone pleasee - no we can't

You can also copy it directly from your cd the bar file

Guys, quit with the caps. No yelling.

First, it's against the Code of Conduct to ask for game files. But as it was obviouslly just a small mistake of yours I'm just editing your posts

Second, chances are that you have a problem with your CD or CD reader. You could try schildpad's suggestions, but I can't confirm if it works or tell you where the file is because I haven't got TAD yet. Try cleaning your CD (google for it) or call the store, say it's not working and ask for a new one. Maybe you will have some luck then

I don't have TAD, just the demo. I did a file search and the only place I find the .bar file is in the demo.

We do have a tech forum for a reason

I would also advise one of the mods to update the tech FAQ to include 1305, 160? something, and the "ESO does not support your game version" error thats fairly common. The FAQs a bit dusty :-\
