HowTo / Notes


In order to get the game working you must enable DirectX 9 instead of DirectX 10:

  • Locate the Engine.ini file (drive_c/Program Files/Ubisoft/Related Designs/ANNO 1404/ or drive_c/users/%username%/Application\ Data/Ubisoft/Anno1404/Config/ )
  • Edit or add a key named DirectXVersion and set the value to 9
  • The file should look similar to this:

The game should run flawlessly then...

If this problem appears under Windows, it's most likely a server problem. But under Wine it also appears while the servers are running fine.
