-Game will install from steam
-VC Redist Package eventually finishes which seems to load the game ,though this would previously return to steam after "installing" the packages, and it was only after a steam update that the game would load.
- main screen seems to be fine ( can select any of the options , single player , map editor etc)
- The actual game will load and show the surrounding borders of the screen dependant on your faction , along with sounds , music , mouse cursor , text ,and mini map .
What does not
The in game screen is black which makes the game unplayable
VC Redist always wants to install when you run the game
What was not tested
the game seems to be ok under wine except for the black screen .. everything else seems to work and is responsive *shrug*
