When i go to start the game, the game will begin to launch, show the small window with the three dudes in the screen. the screen then closes and won’t open age of empires 2 DE, and i am able to press the play button again.
Here is the problem I’m experiencing…
Here’s how to reproduce the issue:
wait for small window to open
window opens then after small amount of time, it closes
I have same problem. I don’t even get to the three headed picture. The process starts for few seconds and then shuts down. I had this problem once before, don’t remember if that was after a patch too. Back then reinstalling the game worked for me but since someone already tried it here I rather not do that. Will take anyway few hours with my connection.

Same issue… been following all guide lines i found on the internet but nothing yet, it just wont start and next i will start reinstalling the game. My AOE Addiction is too big to handle these kinds of problems.
Hello, friends! Many players have discovered that a mod (or mods) may be interfering with the game launching. If you disable your mods and find that you are able to launch the game, we’d love to know the full list of mods you are running so we can try and narrow down the culprit.
On the mods folder I just deleted one folder dedicated to mod the main menu UI (Night Edition Main menu), seeing that the new patch installed a new mongol one I was curious if that would be the problem, and it worked.
