:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

Here is the problem I’m experiencing: After I saved a game from a campaign level and reopened it to continue, I realized that the background music is missing after playing a campaign level further through a save. Has anyone of you here encounter the same issues?

:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  3. Open the save from just now

:question: What was supposed to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

It should normally play the background music.

:question: What actually happened (what went wrong) because of the issue you’re reporting?

A good part of the game is missing without the background music!

:question: Include a OneDrive or Google Drive link to a SAVE GAME or REPLAY FILE (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue.

It happens on every save game, just try it out for yourself. None of the previous updates fixed it, including update 6847.

Do you have any news regarding this topic. I noticed as well that the background music stopps playing or even didn’t start to play.

As much as I remember it has been always been a problem since the release of original AoE3. Of course one could have guessed when they release AoE2DE they would fix such errors.

Hm, I don’t agree. In my memories the music alway was available. But yeah, it is already some months ago since I played AOE 3 the last time… :slight_smile:

Do you have any idea whether or not this bug will be fixed?

it will likley be submited with the next patch

What happened to this patch? The music still isn’t working. Will it ever work in AOE 3 DE? In the official notes the problem never is mentioned. :frowning:


likly doesnt mean it has been patched, wait for next one.
