Cheats! The opponent suddenly jumped 15,000 or more XP!

- Don't delete your cheat units. They're worth 15,000 XP and it is distributed to all enemies. Fort Wars 3.1 onwards also has this disabled.

Map loads but none of the special stuff (spawning, music, buying) work. Barracks in place of fort, Explorer in place of Spawn Selector...

- Download the latest Fort Wars version!

I am asked to download as I enter a game when I know I have the map OR map crashes upon loading OR Map doesn't load.

- You OR the host didn't finish downloading the map and have a partially downloaded map. Be sure to be able to click ready before leaving a game to download the map. If you want to be safe, just download from this site.

Game crashes or says "Failed to Load..." when starting the map.

- You or someone in the game did not fully downloaded the map. Please have them or yourself delete the map (two files, xs and xml) at:
My Documents > My Games > Age of Empires 3 > RM (RM2 for Warchiefs, RM3 for Asian Dynasties)

Then redownload the map from this site to be sure you get the full map.
For AOE3 DE, this should be handled ingame with Tools > Mods. However, at the time of this post, you still need to delete duplicate copies the game generates in the randmaps folder outside mods.

Bug! Computer players don't play right or spawn units!

- This is a Multiplayer map. You should be playing online. Even if the computers could spawn units, they wouldn't buy units, upgrade, or use awards.

The store island does not work! I can't buy things!

- I've heard this alot and everytime I watch a person say this during the game, the person has one of the following problems:
  1. Not enough coin. They aren't free stuff! Check the cost via tooltip of the unit.
  2. Not enough population. Wouldn't that be fun to buy 200 units over your population?
