Changing the menu background for AoE2 DE also affects the RoR expansion

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

:point_down: These details are CRITICAL; DO NOT skip them or your issue may not be reviewed.

  • GAME BUILD #: 85208
  • GAME PLATFORM: Steam
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:point_down: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
When changing Aoe2โ€™s menu background via a mod, the Return of Rome background is also changed to this new background. This does not happen in the current stable build of the game, only the preview.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

Always

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

  1. Download a menu background mod (I used Anniversary2021 - Main Menu)
  2. restart the game
  3. Notice how RoR and AoE2DE now use the same background

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
AoE2โ€™s background is changed, but AoE1โ€™s menu background is a seperate thing (possibly could be changed seperately?)

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

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

(that remake of the old classic is incredibly sexy)

Do you have this issue with every background mod? And after the hotfix?
Thanks for the report :slight_smile:

Yes to both of those: On the hotfix build (which is, incidentally, also #85208) this issue occurs, and Iโ€™ve been able to replicate the bug with several of the official background menus.

I confirm that itโ€™s stll in the game (90260). I also confirm that the bug didnโ€™t exist only in the RoR launch build, as the original poster indicates:

This issue is already being tracked by the team.
