The AI froze and crashed the game.
In the last minute of the video the AI froze up and crashed the game.When it froze up i was moving my fleet to intercept a enemy fleet.here is a link to the video:https://we.tl/t-04TPBMaOrw
The AI freezing/crashing usually results in ships no longer executing orders. I can't see anything that indicates the AI crashed in the video.
From what I can tell from the video, the game randomly froze and then crashed to desktop.
Do you have any overlays (Steam, Discord, etc.) enabled? These usually tend to not play well with Empire at War and should be disabled.
Also some recording software does crash the game. What are you using?
