I played two different ranked 2v2 games that I’ve forced to alt F4. The issue was that after two differents movements, I tried to build a house, and then I wasn’t able to click on any icon. I was still able to move my peasants until few clicks and I couldn’t move them anymore. From that, I could still move my cursor on the screen. The game was still on, but I couldn’t interact with it anymore.
It seems that I’m alone on this case, because my mate could still play his game normally.
I tried to recreate the issue on a custom game (vs IA) but it didn’t occured again.
I will inspect my local files after reporting this bug.
Same problem with me 2v2 or 3v3, when starting to play it all bugs out, when i try and select my town center it goes to sheep when i press enter to type in chat I get locked out and I cannot click anything anymore forcing me to ALT F4, the game continues when I get locked out.
Ok so this new update has automatically installed a mod called ‘’[main menu] Greatest Technologies’’ which is the one causing the error. After you remove that one your game will run fine (for me at least).
With this update, I have the same problem. To be precise, I had similar issues also on the first days of the previous update: after some time, commands are no more queued, being them movement, unit creation, tech and so on. The game is running, it is not at all frozen or lagging, but commands are lagging. Tried to disable the main menu greatest technologies, but it only allowed me to stay more in the game. Still, after about 40 min in game, it happened again. However, i still had active small tree, “zetnus improved grid mod” and “interactive build order guide”
Other update: the problem is there both for ranked and unranked matches. Yesterday I was able to play an unranked match without flaws, but today I had problems both in a 3v3 ranked (no more control on units after 20 mins; 2020.05.02 11090) and in a 4v4 unranked (no more control after 5 minutes; 2020.05.02 11572)
I got hit by this bug just a few moments ago. I closed the game externally after it happened and tried again but it occurred in the next game I tried to play. The server seems to think you are fine, because I still lost ELO as if I had resigned the match.
From the Dxdiag provided, it looks like your video drivers may be out of date. If you have not already, please complete a fresh reinstall of the drivers to remove that as a potential issue. Likewise, ensuring you have completed any pending Windows Updates and the correct Visual C++ files will help eliminate any file issues.
You can find some steps that may help you here:
Let me know if any of those steps work (for any of you), or please feel free to provide your dxdiag and/or any additional information if you are also encountering this problem.
I have the same problem and those three steps you listed haven´t stopped the freeze from occurring. First the bottom interface gets frozen and shortly after every other interface including the ressource count and the scores. The mouse is still moveable and the game itself with all animations goes on. The interface freeze also goes hand in hand with a display bug. All names and settings in the game loading screen are not shown. Even in my save files of mp games all other player names are missing.
