Me and a friend like to play together online, but in AoE3 for some reason, it freezes on a loading screen on my end, while my friend is in-game “Waiting for players”, and it can take up to 5 or so minutes.
I have the Microsoft Store version, but he plays on the Steam version.
We never had this issue on AoE2, but we both played on Steam.
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
- 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
It happens every single time, except for one time. He was the one hosting the match and I got loaded in, while he had the “frozen” loading screen. Not for as much as usual though.
Other than that instance, the issue happens every single time no matter who hosts the match it seems.
- We go create a game under multiplayer
2.invite the other, add a couple AI, and play a 2v2 match.
