It's funny to see an update from a company like MacSoft who is dead like fish. FYI, v1.0.6 updater is from august 2011, so it's probably a mistake to re-post it here in january 2013. And it's 29 $, not 129.

@ MacUpdate-Nick:

I'm looking at "Age of Empires III: Complete Collection" at Amazon and it's 22.99 for PC and 139 for Mac... That's insane!

Leesa, where are you seeing the $29? I believe it used to be, but the only place I can find it for sale (Amazon) has it at $129.

@ MacUpdate-Nick:

You're right. My bad. I just rechecked Amazon and it's $100 more expensive on a Mac. That'a so odd.

After updating, I can no longer host games. Creates new files in different locations. Had to find someone with the 1.01 update and reinstall/downgrade in order to play again.

If you host LAN games - do NOT install upgrade.

I love this game! As much as I like AOE II, this one is a great expansion on it. The same yet better. Graphics are absolutely excellent (especially water).

Runs very smooth on my MacBook Pro C2D. On the Mac mini CD, it's a bit more hesitant, especially when moving large groups of troops but still quite playable.

Have yet to play multiplayer or online, but have made a couple of successful connections. This update will probably just enhance that even more.

Strongly recommend this to gamers, especially those who love AOE II.

wakk231 had trouble on 09 Jun 2008
I purchased the original Age of Empires II for Mac and immediately had problems using my Logitech keyboard to scroll the world map (and my keyboard works fine in every other application outside of this game).

I located the MacSoft website for technical support, but found very little. One one page, there is a list of a few known issues with one patch. After downloading this patch, my problem persisted, and there is no technical support contact information associated with the MacSoft website. Isn't that great? Thanks a bunch, what a waste of $60.

Correction: Age of Empires III

Problem: Uncontrollable scrolling or lack thereof when attempting to scroll the world map. Disappointing.
