Autopatcher refuses to patch[edit]

Autopatcher refuses to patch[citation needed]
Tested on Impulse Driven.
  1. Reinstall the game outside Program Files.
  2. Run the autopatcher again.

Game crashes on startup[edit]

Game crashes on startup[citation needed]

The game seems to hate overlays. Steam and Uplay don't cause issues, but a lot of other software, such as third-party screenshot makers, antialiasing utilities like MacType, cause crashes on startup. Disable or close them beforehand.

Can't click on anything in the main menu[edit]

Can't click on anything in the main menu[citation needed]

This issue comes from using the program Actual Multiple Monitors for multi monitor setups. This can either by fixed by simply closing the program or setting the Anno2070.exe as an exclusion in the Window Settings Tab of Actual Multiple Monitors.
