DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
I started a ranked game, realized i had no mods, finished game → checked mods if activated, they were (but i guess they where gone at that point), restarted game, mods where gone. Tried to install them and restart game like 5 times again and still didnt work. deinstalled game and reinstalled, tried again, still doesnt work.
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
mods would work, like they did before
ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.
Same thing happened to me. Opened the game and about 10 mods missing, opened again and another 10 or so mods gone. Not just unchecked but completely gone. Can’t play without mods, hope the devs respond to this soon.
We’re investigating this issue, in the meantime, as @Bpuko said, I recommend you to do a temporary fix.
Before you launch the game, please make a copy of mod-status.json file, this can be found here:
C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\YOUR_STEAM_ID\mods\mod-status.json
You should also copy your mods to /local.
Mods default folder is: C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\YOUR_STEAM_ID\mods\subscribed
Copy the folders found there in:
C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\YOUR_STEAM_ID\mods\local
I think I have the same issue, looking at my “subscribed mods” on the website there are only a few of the mods i used to have left in the list.
This may have something to do with unlocking new mods from challenges. I had a weird thing happen yesterday where I tried to do the “kill units with petards” challenge and after the game the popup came up for the unlock and i could subscribe to the mod but the challenge was still not fully completed on the right side in the main menu.
Hello @Felizon89, I have experienced the same issue but the mods I have left total 31 as opposed to the 100+ I had before, even if I move the mods to the local folder which is no problem, how can I get all the mods back that I earned over the years from the different monthly events?
