I have purchased a 'Age of Mythology: Gold edition', the UBISOFT EXCLUSIVE version, unforutunatly this version does not seem to work online for me.
whenever I try to create a new account the error message appears stating "Unknown error occured while retrieving country information", this message can be passed and I can fill in the rest of the boxes in order to create my account, however, when the boxes are completeled and i hit 'ok' an error message appears stating "There is an updated version of Age of Mythology that is required to play".
Also, when i try to play with a friend via ethernet cable, an error message appears stating 'your version is not up to date with the host's version, please check both versions are up to date then try again' - his version is a classical 'Age of mythology: gold edition' and NOT the ubisoft exlusive version
I have downloaded countless updates in order to try and patch this problem but nothing seems to work.
I have done plenty of research on this problem and it appears that all EXCLUSIVE versions have the same CD key, meaning I cannot play online.
I am determined to find a solution to this problem; if you have anything that can help me PLEASE get into contact with me!!
P.S. The last thing I am willing to do is buy a new copy of the game which is the classical version as this will be quite expensive so ONLY if you are 100% my problem cannot be solved I would appriciate any information of where to purchase said copy of the game, thankyou.
