How to Play Age of Empires III on Hamachi

By   /   6 years ago

If you have been wondering that why you can’t play Age Of Empires 3 over Hamachi by following the traditional method then you must know that due to some built in network IP conflict in the game,it can’t be played on any virtual network adapter (IP) unless edited. Confused? Well don’t be as I am going to show you the method for playing AOE 3 successfully using Hamachi.

Important:
You should have the patch version 1.04 on your game to establish a successful connection without any disconnects and the Hamachi version of series 1.x not 2.x.It does not always work on the latter version of Hamachi.

Step 1|Hamachi Must be at top in Priority List
You should make sure that Hamachi network adapter is at the top of priority list in network connections.You can do this by going to Network Connection>Advanced>Advanced settings.Move the Hamachi adapter to the top if it is not.

Step 2|Edit the User.cfg
Now go to My Documents>My Games>Age Of Empires 3>Startup and look for the file named User.cfg.If it’s not there then create one using any text editor like Notpad etc.Now add the following command in this text file:

//user.cfg
OverrideAddress=”5.x.x.x”

Here 5.x.x.x is your Hamachi IP displayed at the front Hamachi interface.Now close the file and save it on it’s current location.

Step3|Setting Up a LAN Game
If you have followed the procedure correctly then you should be able to play AOE 3 over Hamachi with your friends.You will be able to see your friends in lobby and enjoy the game :).

Troubleshooting
If somehow you can’t find your friends in the lobby the you should check the following things:

1. Make sure that the IP displayed in the lobby before connection is your Hamachi IP you have added. If it’s not then you must have done something wrong in putting the IP address or the complete command line.
2. When you create a new cfg file then make sure that you have named it as “user.cfg” and not as “user.txt.cfg.”
