What works

Installation works well. All fonts and and buttons render fine.

What does not

Running the Setup.exe shows a startup menu, but without fonts or any other buttons. The game is unable to launch using the WarGame-G4WLive.exe


What was not tested

I did not do any dll overrides, so that could be part of the fix.
