Citizen Won't Respond

Citizens won’t respond to commands, but the enemy game continues as usual. I have tried this with every imaginable combination of scenarios and deleted and reinstalled the game to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi @demroflizard76
By Citizens, do you mean villagers? Are the keyboard and mouse working properly? Do you have a similar issue in any other game?
I recommend you to verify integrity of files in Steam>Library>AoE2>Properties>Local Files.

Thanks for your report!
