If you are using steam, you have to rename the third age folder to the name of one of the other campaigns. Then you'll be able to start it.

Edit: Dang, meant to be reply.

In America, we have Christmas Break (or how they would say in Europe, Holiday) and depending on the grade you are in, you have finals/exams.

You usually don't start having them until the 8th grade.

Anyone having trouble downloading with Chrome? I had to use the notorious IE and surprise surprise, it lost both files somewhere during the night.. Chrome says "Error 349 (net::ERR RESPONSE HEADERS MULTIPLE CONTENT DISPOSITION): Multiple Content-Disposition headers received. This is disallowed to protect against HTTP response splitting attacks."

@ willychong8921 - That is because you didnt let it finish downloading that would the only reason you would get that error my advice is to wipe it out and redownload it again ,,,,

Do you need the earlier versions to play this?

Legolose Dec 20 2011 says:

No you dont need an earlier vertion its a stand alone~~

For all of you having problems downloading just keep trying the servers are at the moment are overloaded so its going to take some time~~

For those of you that got the error "invalid date" delete it then redownload~~

~~~Hope This Helps~~~

says invalid data message on part 1 any way to solve this??

Legolose Jan 11 2012 says:

Like already stated, if you get the error "Invalid data" then you must delete everything and redownload it this happens for some people sometimes, not the fault of us but the fault of Gamefront so therefore there is nothing we can do sorry...
