Hotkeys and layout (classic/definite/etc) keep resetting for me after restarting the game. This happens most often when switching accounts, happened 3x today.

Anyone know a fix?

It still happens even when not switching accounts though.

What kind of accounts? Windows user accounts or Steam accounts?
Either way this is going to be problematic, because the game saves local data based on both (%USERPROFILE%\Games\Age of Empires 3 DE\<steam user id>).
Furthermore, if your Windows username contains special/accented characters, the game will likely not be able to load/save local data persistently at all, they'll just keep resetting.

Both are on Steam.

Is "<" considered a special character? That might be it, I changed my name recently.

Enter the cave of fiery wonders 进入火热奇观的洞穴 Kill the great rock beast 杀死伟大的岩兽 Look for the fragments of the sword in his pouch 在他的小袋中寻找剑的碎 片 Leave empty-handed 空手而归 Appreciate the precious bar in your bank 欣赏您银行中的贵重物品

That's an outright illegal character to use in any Windows file/folder name :hmm:

Well that's my steam in-game name not my username. Would that still cause issues?
