What works


What does not

Running the game. It crashes with an error message stating:

Failed to set a working mode for the rendering device. This could be due to having an old version of DirectX installed.

  2. Open Steam chat windows with people who might try to contact you.
  3. Close everything else, especially calendaring systems
