What works

  • Installation through Steam
  • Starting the game
  • The game 
  • Updates

        What does not

        There is still some flickering in

        • starting menu,
        • cutscenes (black bands and subtitles)
        • faction's movies  
        • loading screens

        There is the case of one small solo instance which was unplayable because of the lag.

        The light reflects differently on the different part of the body of all the characters.


        What was not tested

        Didn't play much of the game (just a few hours).

        Additional Comments

        As previously mentionned, you have to install d3dx9_43 and d3dcompiler_43. To suppress the flickering of the ingame menu, you have to set "lighting detail" and "advanced GFX settings" to 0 in the "advanced" tab in the video options of the game (beware, they are set to max if you choose "Ultra" in "OVERALL QUALITY") ... weirdly, it works without using it now, but I keep the tip here, just in case. When you create your character, if the flickering is too much for you to bear, try reducing the resolution of the game to minimum.
