Additional Comments

  • Perform the Engine.ini fix to force DirectX 9 as described in the HowTo section below.
  • Install the 4GB patch as described in the comment section below.
  • Install the Unofficial Patch v1.10 for vastly improved translations, many bug fixes and improved gameplay.

P.S. Minor annoyance I couldn't fix: Fonts seem to be a little thinner than I remember them being on Windows. Perfectly readable nevertheless.

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...
