What works

Launching the game directly with "Empyrion.exe"

What does not

Once the game is open, mouse clicks do not work on the menu. This renders the game unplayable as you cannot enter the game.


What was not tested

I did not try any Wine-level workarounds. I only tested vanilla Wine with no tweaks or addons.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Workaround for "can't click on things" issue
by Tommy Vandermolen on Saturday July 4th 2020, 16:56
I had the issue most of the testers mentioned where the mouse can highlight menu items but not click on anything.

Adding this registry key fixed the issue for me. I also have to play in windowed mode. Switching to fullscreen seems to cause the issue to return sometimes.

Try running the main Empyrion.exe directly and not via launcher or EACLauncher, it should work this way. The most recent update to game did give a nice 10fps boost also.

Note that we need EAC to play online (unless someone hosts a non EAC server, but not many exist).
