:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


When playing the third mission of Francisco de Almeida campaign, Ruins of Empires, the game randomly crashes around the 1:55:00 and 2:05:00 in-game time, even though not really sure if the issue is related to how much time has passed. It occurs after defeating Kilwa (Red player).

When I was on my way to attack Mombassa (Yellow player), the came crashes. So I’ve restored the last save point and when to attack Bandu (Orange player), and the game crashed as well.

I suspected that grabbing a certain relic in the middle of the map had anything to do with the game crash, but after dropping it, the game will crash too.

After changing the game language, I could be able to advance some minutes, but the game will end crashing at some point.

I’m attaching a game recording where the crashing occurs, and the game crashes as well when playing the recording!

I’ve restarted the mission a couple of times and the crashing is inevitable.
