Using the -OpenGL Argument as described in other tutorials causes the Launcher to exit because of an Assertion
What does not
Probably because running the launcher using DirectX, some graphical changes like hovering over an input causes the window to disappear for a second before it comes back updated (especially noticeable in the login screen). Getting a Friend Request ensure using of the application is no longer possible (the popup-box causes continuous flickering).
Some Hover-Effects (like changing tab / install game) works, other ones causes flickering like on the login page.
You can login using Tab to navigate to the text inputs instead of clicking onto them. As long as you don't get friend requests the launcher is at least usable enough to install and run games.
