Someone recently posted one about Norse unit sounds in the Steam Community here:
Já (yow) - Yes (both question and affirmative)
Ég vil (yer vil) - I will. (I want to)
Skipan? (skeepan?) - Orders / commands?
Samþykkt (samm-thickt) - Agreed.
Tilbúinn! (til-pwin) - Ready!
Veiðimaður (vey-thee-mathur) - Hunter.
Thanks to Google, I found this site, which is about playing Age of Mythology on Ubuntu over a Virtualbox VM.
The solution only works for Virtualbox, however, not for VMware. It still helped me find a working solution, as all I needed was to adapt a few variables.
To trick Age of Mythology into launching despite not recognizing the graphics adapter, you'll ...
You should be able to find some in-depth strategies and build-orders online, but I'll give a short overview of what I remember:
Ra is terrible at fighting in the classical age, but really picks up in heroic and mythic. A common strategy is called a "fast heroic", where you aim to get into the heroic age ASAP and get a midgol stronghold up. Rain is commonly ...

A microsoft employee told me to do a flat installation and the part of the game that didn't copy over doesn't seem to be vital, so the game still works. Here's a link to the conversation http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-gaming/age-of-mythology-rise-of-the-titans-download/75c846f7-d961-4827-9025-59b7965e4141?tm=1349555170992
Age Of Mythology: Extended Edition:
I am finding no evidence stating that the Ports for Extended Edition are different than the original. I did find these patch notes mentioning you should make sure you have steam port-forwarded as well though. Please let me know if this helps or not. I'm still actively searching for evidence of this, I posted the original ...
I used to get the same error:
Video Card 0: VBoxDisp.dll VirtualBox Graphics Adapter Vendor(0x80EE) Device(0xBEEF)
In my case I had installed Virtual Box Guest Additions in "normal mode" of Windows. The diagnostic tool of Directx (dxdiag) showed that the video card didn't support DirectX 3D acceleration.
Solution: I re-installed VB Guest Additions but in ...
To build upon the existing answer.
I found that you don't have to find the date of the driver on your system. Instead use the .gfx file as follows with VMware (tested on VMware Workstation 10):
If you have installed Age of Mythology from its original DVD, it might not work with Windows 10. I suggest getting the Steam version instead.
You can also try to update the game using its files, I think there is an updater somewhere in there.
This is the strat I normally use but it takes time to get used to:
Use starting food to train gatherers
Ulfsark builds a temple while you put your starting gatherers on to food.
Send your Ulf out to scout while you put 3 more gatherers on food (with your starting ones).
Use the rest mostly on gold for land or wood for sea.
Your Ulf should have found the ...
Unfortunately, what you want isn't possible:
Microsoft's RDP uses a it's own graphics driver which converts the rendered screen into network packets to send to the client.
This is the core of how RDP works and you cannot change it.

Unfortunately, your Windows XP host poses a bit of a problem. It means that Steam's In-Home Streaming will not ...
This answer is using the current version (1.12.651680) of Age of Mythology: Extended Edition, on steam.
It sounds like you are playtesting a scenario within the editor, or going into single player and selecting Load Scenario.
When testing a scenario in these ways, players with control set to Human will not have scores appear. However, when you load the ...
At least on steam, Using ALT+ENTER does switch the game to windowed mode, but initially you will only be able to tell by the flicker you described. You must still change the screen size in settings to a smaller value to make use of windowed mode.
Voobly. This software works great. Opening up a game room in the lobby, have your friends join and then you're good to go. The only problem is that when the game opens up, Voobly will take control of your mouse to set up the game, an when this is done you must take control back by switching windows using Alt+Tab or Windows+Tab, then back again.
I would say that the fundamental flaw in your brother's strategy is wasting resources on his defenses. The Norse are the offensive race of the game, so always play to that strength. If you have 4-6 longhouses and about 2 fortress you will be able to train enough forces to place him on the defensive, and offense always decides the game. If you can be ...
