Need to be more specific, what is this pop-up saying?


and no you cannot watch TAD (the asian dynasties) replays without owning TAD. You can watch TWC (the war chiefs) replays when you are on TWC and you can watch vanilla (regular aoe3) replays when on vanilla.

Thanks all of you, i used to play TWC like a few months ago, but it got boring after a while, so i installed it yesterday, and i was looking at rome total war forum, when i saw Age of empires 3 had a forum.
QWW123: I did what you told me, and saved this file: Ceres629(Portugal) vs [FROST]Zotti(French)
on the Scenario section, i hope to watch it tomorrow, but i have a question, after i'm done watching can i delete the file. I don't want these videos filling up my computer. And one more thing, could you recomend good TWC record games i could watch to get the handle of the strategy of Age of Empires 3, i used to just get a massive army and defeat the computer by force, no strategy there. So yeah, and nice to meet you all. I hope to get better and became a clan memeber.

The record game didn't work, how can i tell the difference between a TAD game or a TWC record game. Like is there a tag, that says TWC or TAD record game.

Yeah, i saw a couple of the recorded games had the names on them (mostly TAD), but some didn't like the one i just downloaded it. And also when i delete the files, do they come back, or do they stay deleted.
This is the file, it doesn't have the game name on it.

you are better off looking for more recent games, those are from 2006 so will be on original (expansions were not out yet I don't think)

additionally there have been multiple patches since that time so your current game version will most likely not be able to view those unless you downgrade which is just a huge hastle

No, not really, I can find quite a few vanilla games that are from 2010.

Alright then, how do i find a game that is between players playing online, not scenirio games, even a game against the computer, but at least one player and the game has to be either the vannila version or the TWC version.

as most people here have TAD there probably are not that many recent vanilla replays to watch unfortunately

Rts-sanctuary has a larger replay section, but they too have many more TAD replays than vanilla so not sure how many you can find there, but it is pretty much the only other place unless you can get someone to upload new vanilla replays for you over here or in private.

there are a lot of clan sites u can visit for recs ( for eg,http://aus-ileague.com/index.php?board=44.0 )

u can also watch the ileague recs, they are on fp 1.2

I no longer play aoe3 actively. In fact, I no longer play any video game. That's how lame I've become.

I'm new to this site too, I think it's awesome. However, I was reading some strategies and it was kind of hard to understand with all the abbreviations and nicknames. I searched this forum a topic that may explain what some of them mean. For example, one thing I was wondering was why the original AOE 3 is called Vanilla.

list of abbreviations is here that should explain most abbreviations you come across on these forums.

original aoe3 is called vanilla as it is the "basic" aoe3, with the expansion packs as "toppings" just an analogy. People sometimes shorten vanilla to nilla.
