- Build (101.101.34233.0 4509956)
- Platform (Steam)
My game crashes in two different ways.
- First one is when the game freeze for a short moment and then every program I was opening turns black. Everything recovered, but only AOE2:DE stays black. Audio plays, I can still make units with hotkeys and mouse cursor but there’s nothing to see. The only solution is to quit and restart the game. I don’t know what causes this, but I suspect that the GPU driver crashed.
- Second one is when my PC completely hangs itself. The only audio I can hear is the static noise. There’s nothing to do but force shutdown the PC and turning it back on.
I got the latest drivers, do frequent file verification on Steam. Nothing helps. My specs:
Ryzen 5 3600 no OC
Play and wait for it.
I have similar issue.
Several seconds after launching the screen goes black (monitors go to power saving/turn off), sound keeps playing (AOE sound, Spotify if it was playing in background keeps playing) but keyboard is dead (cannot change Caps/Num Lock, alt+ctrl+del doesn’t work) and only way to recover is hard reboot. The sound stops playing after about a minute or two.
I found nothing in event log about driver crash or similar.
32GB DDR4 @3600
Radeon 5700XT Sapphire Pulse
The only other case of freeze like this happened while I was writing this, I started HWInfo64 to check my DDR frequency. It froze/crashed exactly the same (screens off, youtube continued to play on sound card). I managed to find AMD driver crash in logs: Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
I think my issue is related to AMD driver (the 2020 Adrenalin 20.1.4). I will try updating it, seems there is 20.2.1 available.
Same for me with the Nvidia RTX 2070 16 GB RAM
So far i found out in my event log that the problem is caused by nvlddmkm.sys. Tried everything there is to find on google, but nothing worked. If i check my system performance my GPU crashes and then the game closes. Only happens when i play aoe2DE. I can play LoL Overwatch BF1 etc…
It always happens post castle age. You guys got the same problem?
I am having the same issues. Did anyone find a solution?
Same issue here. Game crashes to desktop and have done so since release. In the mean time I have upgraded the motherboard and reinstalled Windows 10. Issue persists.
32GB DDR4 @3200 and @3600, both crashes
Tried with and without UHD pack. Lowest and high settings. Crashes to desktop without any error.
Got the same problem here… It seems to start happening after I upgraded my windows to https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4549951/windows-10-update-kb4549951
I reverted this update and it worked for me.
Same issue. Newly built computer, above minimum specs.
CPU: i5 4570
GPU:Rex 460 4GB
M/B: ASUS H81m-e
Ram: 8GB DDR 1600
Get about 15/20 minutes In. Black screen and buzzing from the speaker. No way to get out but hard reset.
