Hi @TamerLame1142
I wasn’t able to reproduce this issue in 2 different machines, could you send me a savegame where I could reproduce this issue?
Can I ask you for your DxDiag as well? https://support.ageofempires.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052783111-How-to-find-information-for-troubleshooting-with-Support

Thanks for this report :slight_smile:

Sure, there’s one of my games:

SP Replay v101.102.30274.0 @2023.10.23 072301.aoe2record (7.1 MB)

Do you have your GPU driver up to date?

What is that?

I’m not super familiar with computers.

Also, I noticed that this happens only when you select the units and the icons appear, it doesn’t happen when watching the record of a game, but it also happens when you select the units in that record, even if the game is paused or the match has finished:

No units selected

Units selected

I think I do have something called display memory and shared memory, but, I don’t have a GPU in my laptop afaik. The game ran well until this bug happened a couple patches ago and right now with this PUP.

Your graphic card is Intel(R) HD Graphics 520, here you can download the latest driver for it:

Try updating, restarting the pc and checking again :slight_smile:

Ok, I’ll try right now.

It still happens after updating the driver:

Can you try disabling your mods and restarting the game after it?

Sure. 20 characters…

Sorry, I forgot to respond back, it didn’t work:

Hi there,
We ask that you only report PUP issues on the PUP forum for proper support.
This is now an option that you can toggle off at will, as stated in the patch notes.
