i am having the same issues. i went through everything i could possibly think of and feel like im giving my laptop aids by some of the crazy things people are having me do to get it to work. any further info on this new update that ruined everything?
I have exactly the same issue. My config is a Core I7 11th gen., 16 GB Ram, on a Dell Latitude, with Windows 11 Pro. I played several months without any problem and now, since one or two weeks, I can start a game, but after 10-20 minutes, it slows down and then finally crashes. I reinstalled the game, even without graphic pack, but the issue remains.
I have the same issue, AOE II DE Crashes 5 - 10 minutes after starting a new custom game or multiplayer game (only 2 game modes i have tried).
If i restart and load the save the game will crash 5 - 10 mins in again.
My PC specs are i7 10700K, 32Gb DDR4 3200 Ram, RTX 3070 so system specs should not be to blame. I am running windows 11 (the crashing started not long after updating…) and all drivers are updated to the latest version.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game on my boot drive and verified all game files. I am playing on Steam.
I am having the same issue. I used to play AOE2 definitive edition without problem before on windows 10 but on updating to window 11, I can play the game for 10 mins, it get very laggy and suddenly crashes to desktop in a couple of mins.
this is my config:
11th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i7-1185G7 @ 3.00GHz 1.80 GHz
16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable)
Windows 11 Pro
Kindly help. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game twice. Ran in safe mode and also don’t have any third party antivirus.
