yes, memory leak is an unlimited thing… the only workaround is to save very frequently.
But this is just lol, i can play GTA V on high settings, Elite Dangerous nearly at highest, and none of these eat as much ram as this memory leaker, with graphics… that is funny these days.

The engine is the engine from 1999 which is optimized to run 2019 graphics.
So that will cause issues.
But seems you never saw how much it is improved now since the release…

Read these sentences again, they are contradicting. The reality is that AoE2 DE is incredibly poorly optimized if at all. But to be fair, yes a few things have been improved upon. But only a few.

Engine is from the original version? I don’t think so. That’s easier to re-write than update the old, which is very outdated.

This was confirmed.
That’s why you can use AOC saves and mods in this game.

Well, they wanted to give a nostalgic feeling. Otherwise, a 3D engine would do you better than an engine form 20 years ago. AOE2DE and AOEDE engines are updated Genie Engine.

mods, and saves does not mean anything. See for example OpenRails, in which you can use any content from microsoft train simulator, while it’s a completely new game, writter from zero.

But Cysion confirming it does mean something.


The game is called a remaster
