You can run a Ranked Benchmark Test via the options menu to determine whether you are running the correct settings to play Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition in a competitive multiplayer environment. If you score below the recommended threshold, here are a few things you can do to improve your score:
- First, try lowering the Graphics Presets to a lower setting, confirm the change, and then run the benchmark again;
If that doesn’t work, try the following:
- Disable the Enhanced Graphics (UHD) option
- Disable V-sync if it is currently enabled
- Lower your Resolution
Be sure to select Confirm to lock in the settings before running the benchmark test again.
