DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.
It takes me a very very long time to load into a multiplayer game. This confused me since my computer is relatively fast and I have a wired internet connection and usually hit 800Mbps download. Once I’m in a game I experience no lag at all either. Singleplayer takes no time to load so its definitely not a problem with my computer. I’ve tried numerous fixes, I’ve allowed the game through my firewall (both publically and privatley) and i’ve also tried using a VPN in hopes that they might do something (it did not) I reinstalled the game on another drive (still an SSD) and it seemed to work the first game I joined loaded somewhat fast but after that it took forever to load back in again.
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST.
- 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- Load up AoE3 DE
- Click on Multiplayer browse game
- After everyone readys up the game loads and takes 10+ minutes to load.
What was supposed to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
The game would load a lot faster and it would not take 10+ mins to load as it is on an SSD, It doesnt lag when it eventually loads and singleplayer loads very quickly.
What actually happened (what went wrong) because of the issue you’re reporting?
Its stuck on the loading screen, the animations on the screen dont play/continue and the music stops.
Include a OneDrive or Google Drive link to a SAVE GAME or REPLAY FILE (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue.
In the loading screen, no replay available.
