:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
Normal intro music, not playing the return of rome music over the top of the normal music. Not playing it repeateedly on loop over the top of everything else in the game, at all times.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

Really strange, when I tried to record it, the recording only captured the normal music. It is definitely the game though as it only stops playing when I close the game

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.


Hi there, this appears to be due to the Steam Overlay - the Return of Rome store page with its trailer movie opened in background. Can you press Shift+Tab, and close the Store Page for Return of Rome?

The music did not get recorded because it’s not coming from the game itself.


You’re exactly right! I didn’t realise the new steam overlay saved its session and remains between closing a game and opening it again! Thanks so much fior pointing that out
