:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When in the lobby setting up a co-op game of Suryavarman I #4 (Challenging a Thalassocracy), if you don’t have the Dynasties of India DLC and you try to switch from player 1 to your ally (the Dravidians), the game crashes.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Load AOE II DE without the Rise of India DLC loaded
  2. On the main menu, click “Cooperative Campaigns”
  3. Choose Suryavarman I and then “Challenging a Thalassocracy”
  4. Wait for the lobby to open
  5. Click on the player number to switch it from Player 1 to your ally’s player number

The game will immediately crash.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT


  • The player switches to the player controlling the Dravidians and can continue the scenario as usual
  • An error message appears saying that the player can’t be chosen unless you install the Rise of India DLC
