:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Anytime I am in a game and I click on the mini map the sound to the game stops and I do not go to the part of the map that I click. The sound stays turned off and when I move my mouse around the screen, I am unable to maneuver around the map until I click on the onto the main screen and then the game continues. It does not appear that game actually freezes (since vills, horses, etc still move in the background), just that i can’t scroll around the map if I have clicked the mini-map until I click back onto the main screen.

HI @Nickgolfs1986 !

  1. Can you try to verify your files in the Steam Library? Age of Empires II → Right button → Properties → Local files**
  2. Can you disable your mods?

Let me know if the problem is fixed!
