What works

Single player.

What does not

Attempting to use the game's DirectX11 renderer will crash the game with an unimplemented function error during startup.

Enabling the mod manager will still crash the game on startup.

The game's encyclopedia (in-game help) is not viewable in game. (Gives a white box in the upper left corner of the help window on a black background.)

The game's UI may glitch out occasionally after returning to the campaign map from a battle. Rendering the UI as black boxes.


Play the game with the DirectX9 renderer and mods disabled using wined3d. (Avoids the crashes.)

Viewing the game's encyclopedia can be done by opening it's html files manually outside of the game. It's under /data/encyclopedia. (No workaround exists for in-game viewing.)

If the UI glitch occurs, the controls and tooltips are still functional. These can be used along with the campaign map to "feel" and navigate around the UI. (To fix the glitched UI, save, exit to desktop, and reload the game.)

There are no workarounds for the mod manager. (CEF application.)

Additional Comments

DO NOT RUN WITH DXVK! The game will crash after returning to the campaign map from a battle preventing progress. (Out of Memory error.) This will happen on both a 32bit and 64bit prefix. Use wined3d instead.
