Monks can freeze in place when they can't convert a building

  • GAME BUILD #: 82587
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Ordering a monk to convert a building when it isn’t allowed to (due to the specific technology not researched, or simply because the target is a wall), and then attempting to move it, may cause the monk to freeze/get stuck in place unless the Stop command is used.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

  1. Select a monk and order it to convert a something when it does not have the tech required to do so (or select a wall).
  2. Command it to move elsewhere.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

That monks can move whenever are told to, regardless of the command/order that was previously given.

Hello @SlenderBadger98
Do you have a rec showing the issue? You can find it here: C:\Users\your_user_name\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\76561198208185053\savegame

Thanks for the report :slight_smile:

  • I don’t have access to a savefile, unfortunately.
  • After a re-installation of the game, it worked normally regarding commands and monks.

Maybe it was just an issue on my end with a third-party app running in background (Bandicam).

Don’t hesitate to talk to me if you encounter any more problem. We’re actually tracking some issues with units unable to move.

hello i met this bug too

  • GAME BUILD #: 82587
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

when bug happens, monk model got freeze.monk can only move after the building/wall is destroyed or be forced to cure a damaged unit in sight(cure range)

i am quite sure that its not a bug caused by OBS or some live software

and i can provide 2 official campaign reps maybe time after 1 hour

as a new user i cant direct upload :frowning_face:


I’m having the issue again. I selected one of my monks, and tried to convert a gate (which of course, wasn’t possible). Then I commanded the monk to move away from there, and the game would just ignore my clicks. I’m experiencing this issue while at the William Wallace 7 scenario (The Battle of Falkirk).
