Whenever I try to join over a friends invite i’m stuck in loading screen for ever, when I go into the lobbybrowser I am unable to find any lobbies. When I try to create a lobby I can open the windows in which I change name and visibility of the lobby but the button to create the lobby stays grey.
I can create a lobby when I leave the sapce for the lobbyname blank, I noticed that the field for the name was grey as well with a circle moving next to it a if the game checked the availability of the name.
It will be hard to reproduce this because I did not do anything (knowingly) to create this bug.
Also have this issue. Anyone know where the AOE2:DE logs are stored for the Steam version? Unable to locate it in ProgramData as was suggested for the Store version. No other ideas on how to troubleshoot this.
I’m having the same issue even after trying the fixes you suggested. On top of that when I accept an invitation to a private lobby it hangs on joining game screen with cycle wheel. Though friends claim I’m in the lobby, I’m still stuck on the joining screen.
Same issue currently happening.
I have found a workaround though oddly which is tethering my phone to my PC and using its internet instead of my local ethernet. Not sure why this works, I’m not a network genius.
Hope this helps as I desperately want this to work as well.
