What works

Installation worked fine.

What does not

I was unable to run it properly because intro video was lowering my screen's resolution and after loading menu screen it was not restored back to normal. Thus making whole game unplayable.

In original you can not define PlayIntro=0 param in config (it is simply ignored by the game) which allowed me to skip intro and successfully play in PTW and Conquests expansions.

 Sorry but garbage level for me.
