The Real World Map "Byzantium" is broken

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


The game did not start and crashed when trying to play on the “Byzantium” map.

I also experimented with some other settings changes, such as game speed, difficulty, number of players, etc. In the case of Civilizations, I tried Byzantines, Romans, Tatars, etc.

Therefore other settings and conditions seem irrelevant to this issue. And this happens in both Single Player and Multiplayer.

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Select the “Byzantium” map on the preparation screen. (Any other settings are fine.)
  2. Press the start button.
  3. Then it crashes.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

It should always be possible to play the “Byzantium” map under any conditions without any crashes.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

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

Sorry. I couldn’t take any screenshot because it crashed immediately.

: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.

Hello @Lamplighter072

After applying yesterday’s hotfix, I am able to play the Byzantium map without any crashes. Thank you for your quick response. :blush:
