DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
after playing one or multiple matches, opening the home city deck screen in-game triggers severe lag and consistent freezing/crashing in multiplayer. this lag persists until game restart. I’ve actually noticed this a long time ago and believed it was already reported, but its happened enough recently that it makes it hard to continue playing.
some other UI element also triggers lag/crashing, but I haven’t consistently triggered it yet to know what it is.
How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!
- Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)
doesn’t happen every match and is seemingly random, but it eventually will happen in a long enough playthrough. can be the first few games, but unlikely.
List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- play several games in a row
- use home city several times
- at a random point, opening the home city will cause screen to freeze for a second, then lagging/crashing will continue until game is restarted.
What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
I can play for hours without lag/crashing. in-fact its what I did in vanilla, just to ensure I’m not looking at it through rose tinted nostalgia.
ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.
hard to show lag/desktop crashes in a screenshot.
Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe3Ysav) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe3Yrec) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.
same as above, ill have to get a desktop recorder to show me crashing.
