There is a problem with Age of Empires II Conquerors expansion pack (and obviously the original one). Looks like your new font smoothing doesn't play well with 256 color mode, as the game runs hell slow when there's a lot of text on screen. It would be awesome to have it disabled on certain screen modes or at least make it "disable-able" It's anoying because the game slows down at menus and LAN play is horrible, the affected PC causes all other players to lag. BTW I'm getting a lot of "Access Violation" boxes when using the wallpaper changer. If I choose to click on OK, it dissappears and the PC starts to lag till it freezes. I'm thinking it's KEx, *reinstalls*.
