:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


I was able to edit colors a few weeks ago, but it’s no longer possible. I can’t click on any of those buttons or sliders. Are others facing this issue?

I have no mods and have never had one.

I can click on the ENABLE FRIEND/FOE OUTLINES button. It’s just the COLORS subpanel that is affected. I can click on and interact with everything in the VISIBILITY subpanel and below it.

I have verified integrity of game files with Steam, but I still have this issue. I still have it after the new update that came out today (or maybe it was yesterday, but it’s very new).

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Open Options.
  2. Click on Accessibility.
  3. You will see the panel I reported about above.

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
I think I should’ve been able to click on the sliders or buttons and edit the colors.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

Already did in the bug report. But, I will repeat the image here:

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe3Ysav) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe3Yrec) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

It is not a problem I encounter through an active game. I’m simply unable to edit my colors. Not in singleplayer nor in online multiplayer. I don’t mind sending my entire game directory if I could.

Did you click on a colour to select it before trying to edit it?

Yes, I tried. Buttons are not clickable. Same for the sliders. It’s really as I described above.

Hi @PrimaryN00b,

Some options can only be changed from Main Menu\Options and not while in a match/scenario or spectating a game.

Radio buttons display as gold when they can be interacted with. I can see from the screenshot that they are grey, which is how they would appear if you are viewing them from within a match.

Are you able to edit the colours following these steps?

  1. Go to Main Menu
  2. Select Options
  3. Select Accessibilty
  4. Select P1-P5 or T1-T4 buttons

Thanks! :slight_smile:


Yes. Thanks. This is the solution. It worked.


Sometimes its funny that people dont think about trying stuff like this …
