Incredible… How can Microsoft manage to ruin a game that was already perfect. I’ve never seen crashes like this since AoE 1… Not even with non-official patches (Voobly, etc).
I have 24GB RAM, XEON W3680 (Hexa-core), GTX 1060, SSD. Never had problems with other games crashing. Like we all know already, it started with the last patch.
You should reset or give all the players an option to reset their ranks… Or, at least, let all affected users to complain about a specific match that crashed (like Voobly allows), because such situation are not our fault…
Mate, I have noticed that you are around all crash posts in here. You obviously have some relation to Microsoft.
I’m a programmer (not saying that I know everything, but I know what to do or try with my system).
The point is not try to tweak/fix such crashes, just that, BEFORE the last patch everything was fine.
So there’s a clear cause/relation.
And for the staff info, I was using Win 7 until few days ago, and game crashed there as well (Win 10). So the OS doesn’t affect anything in this crashes (a clean OS btw)…
Don’t be hard on @dededoritos he is just trying to help and certainly does not have any relation with MS.
I have published a post a week ago on how to deal with all kind of crashes on DE
I thought the problem was fixed but I started crashing again… At least not every game.
But anyways I think I have figured out a real workaround to this crash.
Just looking at your task manager I see (1% cpu usage meaning you got an SSD which is good) but most importantly you have Nvidia Geforce GT or GTX and possibly a monitor is plugged into your laptop or desktop pc?
I also got Nvidia Geforce GT 630 & my laptop is connected to a monitor Asus VG248QE. Coming to my workaround.
I disabled all “NVIDIA High Definition Audio” as shown below
Then uninstalled my monitor driver for Asus VG248QE so for now i’m only utilizing just the generic one (Uninstall only if the factory website does not have windows 10 drivers):
Yesterday I played 4 long games and I did not crash at all. (I played without a grid mod so you might as well do the same)
And btw you are right the game is still broken and needs more attention especially MP.
I just purchased the game and it crashes pretty much every match I play. I believe you need to change your coding because the game seems to be unable to read or understand the command you want it to do. I do coding for a living and if I can change the code in Skyrim Special Edition to make it run better then you should be able to change the code for age of empires 2 definitive edition. This is an old game and it should run easily on a 2019 gaming PC without any glitches or crashes.
