What does not
Crash in Campaign mode
Flickering mouse cursor
To fix the crashes in Campaign mode, use Proton >= 3.16 and enable the Large Address Aware tweak (set PROTON_FORCE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE=1 %command% as the game's launch options)
To fix the flickering mouse cursor, go to SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Dawn of War Soulstorm/Drivers/spdx9_config.txt and replace allowhwcursor 1 with allowhwcursor 0
