    From the FAQ

    Q. What does CRC mismatch mean?
    CRC mismatches commonly occur when a player's version of the game does not match the version of the game they are trying to join. Below are a few common causes of this issue:

    • You are running a cracked version of the game.
    • You are launching the game using a "no-cd check" executable.
    • The patch did not install correctly
      • Work around: uninstall and reinstall the game and patches.
    • You made modifications to your files in the game Startup folder such as game.cfg
      • Most people who have disabled the cinematics or added other things in game.cfg or other .cfg files are getting a CRC Mismatch error - Undo ANY changes made to your .cfg files and the problem should be fixed; otherwise, reinstall the game.
    • You made edits or installed a mod that edited one of the .xml game files; such as proto.xml
      • Undo ANY changes made to your .xml game files and the problem should be fixed; otherwise, reinstall the game.
    • You are running an unauthorized version of this game.

    Quick things to try/check: 

    • Please reboot your computer and router and then see if you can log on.
    • Run the file check utility (see "common issues" section above for more information) to see if core files are valid. If any of the files are not valid, then the safest thing to do in is completely uninstall and reinstall the game and patch directly up to the latest game version.

    Pretty much. Give her another CD instead of Age3, and hide the real one. I doubt she'll see the difference (there are ofc three CD's in the case).

    It's not crap. I'm pretty sure you run vista and didn't take the neccesary steps, as it was said in the read-me.

    Why do you reply a thread created more than 2 years ago?

    Oh, and Paragon is not working anymore. I really doubt he will ever respond you.

    Also, I think he already mentioned all necessary info about CRC missmatch in his post. You can try going to FAQ or just googling it if you want to find more possible information though.

    Anyways, never buy cracked game versions. It's fine if you want to, but you will surely always experience such problems.
