Selected Test Results

What works

  • starting a game
  • playing in windowed mode (galaxy map, managing planets, combat), I was able to complete prolonged 50 star galaxies
  • saving/loading games (most of the time)

What does not

  • Playing in full-screen mode can result in the game not rendering at all or in messed up scaling, especially after alt-tabbing or switching workspaces
  • A few textures do not render properly and instead look like some interlaced mess. Specifically ground mechanical units (tanks, hovertanks, battle mechs) and in space combat the missiles and fighters/bombers.
  • The game may crash occasionally, especially after hours of playing, and at one point I had a save file that would always crash when loading. The logs indicate GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY errors. Switching to "simplified graphics" in game settings fixes or alleviates the issue.


  • Playing in windowed mode to avoid the issues with full-screen mode.
  • Using the "simplified graphics" game setting to avoid GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY crashes.

What was not tested

  • Completing a playthrough of the largest galaxy possible.
  • Playing all the available races (I only played Orthin and Human so far).

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
