 Age of Empires 2: HD Edition Beta Patch - patch
(hx) 03:18 PM EDT - Apr,18 2013
In case you didn't know, Age of Empires 2 recently got an HD remake on Steam. The game launched with several issues including low frame rate performance and multiplayer connection issues. Thankfully, the development team has released a beta update that offers up to 50% performance improvements on low-end systems and up to 500% performance improvements on high-end systems. Below are the patch notes, to download the patch go to properties, betas, select performance from the drop down menu and download. If that doesn't work, try restarting steam.
  • Frame rate & performance improvements that increase frame rates up to 50% on low end machines and up to 500% on the high end systems previously experiencing frame rate issues.
  • Visual fixes: Windows DPI scaling no longer zooms the in-game perspective.
  • Default scroll speed increased.
  • Multiplayer fixes including:
  • Quitting a multiplayer game triggers a resignation instead appearing as a 'drop'.
  • Private lobbies stay private.
  • Quick match no longer crashes.
  • Long Steam usernames no longer cause crash.
  • Hotkeys for multiplayer are correctly saved.
  • Lobby now enforces that you only play multiplayer with the same build version.
  • Visual indications of players in your lobby and in game who have low frame rate.
  • Better networking verification prior to entering game (prevents getting stuck on the voting screen).

  • Multiplayer quick match speed defaults to normal.
  • Quick match has additional map size filter.
  • Multiplayer Lobby doesn't lock to a region for displaying games.
