  • Apparently, a lot of players are encountering sound problems with the game. For them the sound is simply not working, they can’t hear a thing. It doesn’t seem to be a fix for this issue at this moment but we’ll inform you as quick as possible if something comes up.

“Seriously, Nothing is working for me. No sounds whatsoever. And seriously square, why wouldn’t you just put a tech support subforum, did you expect there to be 0 issues at launch?”

“I don’t know if it’s just my laptop but I can’t get sound to come from my TV when using HDMI for this, anyone else having the same issue?”

  • Gamers are complaining on the Steam Dashboard about the UI of the game, it seems that the mobile UI is annoying and unplayable.

“The mobile UI has to go! It’s obnoxious and obscuring the battle, some of the dialogue boxes are also slightly too big from what I’ve seen, but that’s a bit less of an issue. I hope it’s moddable, someone will hopefully do SE’s job again.”

      Thanks a lot Dude.

  2. Yuki says

    I’m one of the people you quoted on the sound issue, and I have since found a fix. I tried running the DX Setup, didn’t fix it. Installed CCCP and K-lite, and it didn’t work. I updated everything, and it did not work.

    So at this point, you may be wondering what fixed it. Quite simple, really… I replaced the data in the x64 folder with the data from the x86 folder. But that raises another question. what is wrong with this game to the point that it causes the 64-bit version to have loading errors? Some peoples’ battles wouldn’t load

  3. Harkonnen says

    The first battle won’t start for me!!!
    as soon as the screen goes black, the music starts and I can pause, but the battle never starts…

    1. Yuki says

      Do exactly what I did. Replace the data in the 64-bit folder with the data in the 32-bit folder.

      1. Ozzon says

        Same here. I dont have a 32-bit folder. I have a “x86” and “x64”. Can you help me?

        1. Denis says

          x86 means 32

  4. Andrew says

    having a game breaking control issue. cursor is constantly going to the left. cant select new game/load game in menu screen. auto moves character in game to left.
    tried playing with xbox1 controller, mouse, and keyboard. same issue each time.

    somebody with the same problem posted this

    1. MisterMeeseeks says

      EXACT same issue here. I played it for a good two hours, saved and quit. Came back to it after a bit and my mouse just stutters and I can’t select anything at all. And my controller apparently doesn’t work for the start menu, even though it worked for everything else?
