The multiplayer won't work, I get a different version error.


hello there,

even though my friend and I have the same version.
We're using wireless LAN, but we've also tried direct IP. We still keep getting the incompatable version error. Does anybody have any clue to what might be wrong?

cheers
Zolf

Both of you do this:

from the Age of Mythology: The Titans Expansion Main Menu, click More, and then click About Age of Mythology: The Titans Expansion.

This somewhere should list your version number. Check with your buddy and make sure they are the same. Example (1.02)

If they are not, the one with the lesser version number will need to find a "patch" online to update their version.

Are you both using the same CD Key to activate the game? This can cause issues when you are trying to play another user with the same key.

Is it just you getting the error or is it whoever isn't hosting?
Do you both have the same base AOM installation disks or does one of you have a copy of the "Gold" edition?
Did you both update Titans online or have you downloaded and installed the 1.03 patch?
 
Check the date & file size on both your aomx.exe files are the same.
