Game freezes EVERYTIME: Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, Update 93001, AI in CD-Version-Mode

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 12074291
  • GAME PLATFORM: Steam / Microsoft Store
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Since the update 81058 was installed automatically by Steam the AI-Mode for original “CD-Version” isn’t working properly anymore.

When a AI-CD-Version-Opponent changes his diplomatical status to you the game freezes nearly everytime and cannot be restored properly.

Even after installing the latest update 93001, the error did not change.

I have attached a file BEFORE the bug and a file AFTER the bug (after the change of the diplomatic status on the part of the AI).

: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. Start an offline game against AI-Opponents “CD-Version”
  2. Choose eight of AI-CD-Version-Opponents, so that one might offer you to join your side for 500 in wood/stone/food/gold or wanting you just to pay 100 to you …
  3. Pay them or do not pay them (doesn’t matter)
  4. As soon as the opponent changes his diplomatical status to you to either “allied” or “enemy” the game freezes / jammes

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The game jammes / freezes.

Hi @Silent_Pursuit
I confirm the team is working on a fix for this bug. One of the main reasons the game crashes is the AI repeatedly switching diplomatic stance causing the crash.


Thank you for the answer.

Due to it has been a long time since I reported that bug I started a new topic according to the subject. Great to hear that this problem is in focus.

best regards
