I’m not sure when exactly it started, but within the past week or two my game has been having some serious problems with small stutters—about one or two every second—regardless of graphics settings, and even on the main menu. I’m pretty sure it’s more of a frame skip than actual lag, because I can continue to move my mouse during the skip, but units and camera movement will freeze and then catch up. These skips were not present a when I first started playing AoE2 near the beginning of the year.
I’ve followed all of the optimization suggestions (https://www.ageofempires.com/support/optimization-tips/), tried moving the game to my SSD, and doing a clean reinstall, but it still hasn’t returned to how it’s been working previously. I’m not sure where to go from here, so I hope someone out there has a suggestion or two!
Here’s how to reproduce the issue:
