Just purchased a ticket for an overseas flight and the travel agency said that the flight is over-booked and a window seat was not available. I was really mad. Is there any tips or tricks and I can tell to the ticketing agent at the airport in order to get a window seat?

What did they have?

The airline’s seating reservation doesn’t allow me to do advanced seat reservations since my ticket was purchased from an external travel agency..
What other options do I have other than going to the airport/airline ticket agent very early and try to ask for a window seat?
