Age of Mythology doesn’t have any widescreen resolutions but you can manually force the game in a widescreen resolution using the config file.
- Right click on your Age of Mythology shortcut and select properties.
- In the target field add the following option after the location of the .exe file:
E.g. C:\Program Files\Age of Mythology\aomx.exe xres=1366 yres=768
Make sure the xres and yres are smaller then or equal to your monitors maximum resolution or you’ll run into the initialization failed issue.

To increase your chances of a solution being found include as much detail as possible (which version of the game you’re running, what operating system you have, what video card you have and steps to reproduce the issue). Screenshots are also very useful!
