Issues fixed[edit]

Could not initialize Direct3D[edit]

There is an issue launching the game where the user will be presented with an error message displaying "Could not initialize Direct3D. Please make sure the latest DirectX End-User Runtime is installed". There is a possible fix detailed below but some users are reporting the issue persisting even after installing the latest version of DirectX 9.[5][6]

Update DirectX[citation needed]
  1. Download the latest version of DirectX 9 available here.
  2. Run the application and go through the installation process.

Users cannot connect to a hosted server[edit]

Because the server executable Server.exe is blocked by default users will not be able to connect to the server.[7]
Unblock the server executable from the Windows Firewall[7][8]
