What works

Installation was performed on windows, and symliked to wine, so N/A.

Using steam to begin game launching works ~1 of 3 times (2 of 3 times lead to hang/crash).

If it succeeds, game successfully renders (using DX11) and asking for "press spacebar to continue". So rendering and input works while loading.

What does not

Game fails during launching with "EAC client cannot be instantiated" message. It correctly displayed inside game DX11 UI, see

EAC - is EasyAntiCheat.


What was not tested

can't get to menu, playing

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

It appears that next main issue is EasyAntiCheat which maybe relies on windows driver... The crashes/hangs at startup looks less problematic.
