Launcher issues

If you're experiencing problems with the launcher, such as the game closing unexpectedly after pressing Play, you can remove it entirely by following these instructions:

  1. Open up the AoM: EE installation directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age of Mythology by default).
  2. Delete the Launcher.exe file.
  3. Find aomx.exe and rename it to Launcher.exe.

This will disable the launcher entirely when opened from Steam.
