Cant attach .mdmp file because its not supported


Just had this happen for me as well today.

Was midway through a game - and a crash to desktop.

Didn’t have any problems before the last patch.

I actually was able to pull the recorded game file. Every time the recording is watched - it crashes the game in the same place. Might be helpful to share with the devs, thanks!

Same. I have been playing with the PUP build version 101.101.46786.0 6466919, and this issue seems fixed. Lets hope the patch is coming soon. You could try the PUP and let the feedback flow.

Same issue here today as well… had a successful ranked 1v1 game on Acropolis last night and it ran over an hour on the game clock, but today I played a ranked 1v1 on Arabia and the game freezes and crashes me out to the Desktop around 25min on the game clock (and does this same thing if you watch the recorded game).

Also still having some frequent game stutter when a player clicks to advance to the next age, been going on for the last several patches, just haven’t had time to document and report all the details for the dev. team.

try post in the below thread to amplify our voices. there are like 5-6 out of sync or crashes threads so try to combine them and let them know to release a hotfox. theres already a preview patch that fix crashes and many oosync problem but its not being released as an official patch… without them being released we can’t even play with other players.
