Known IssuesEdit

 1. Game crashes with a "Failed to DrawPrimitive" message. This most probably means that you do not have enough Video Memory to run the game (you need at least 512MB). If you get this message in other circumstances, please send us your DxDiag.txt file. [#2726]
  2. Game occasionally crashes when alt-tabbing from fullscreen. [#2517]
  3. Game occasionally crashes when taking a screenshot. [#1901]
  4. Steam version of the game fails to start on some machines. Most people got the game to work by uninstalling or reconfiguring their third-party anti-virus software and/or anti-malware software, like Zone Alarm and Ad Aware. [#2738]
  5. A few BSoD instances have been reported, though we are still investigating what the cause could be. Updating your graphics and audio drivers is always recommended in such situations. [#2725]
  6. A rare crash when canceling a card has been reported. [#2766]
  7. Game has been reported to quit to desktop after the 'Please Wait' message on Windows XP. [#2716]
  8. Game UI can be extremely slow if you have ASUS gamingOSD or ASUS smartdoctor installed. [#2757]
  9. Graph labels are sometimes obscured by the graphs themselves. [#2796]
 10. It is possible for resources to be consumed by Energy and Transport before they can be directly used by Agriculture, Industry and Commerce. This results in a largely satisfied energy and transport need but a large sectoral shortfall; the resultant hit to GDP in Agriculture, Industry and Commerce sectors is often comparable to the amount they'd suffer if energy and transport were short on their resources but nonetheless this causes an undeniable inaccuracy in resource use that requires a fix. [#2778]
 11. Sometimes sound will fail to initialise; restarting generally fixes this but the sound will never recover without a restart. [#2169]
 12. The 'Doctor is in the House' achievement is not awarded for the 6 degree win. [#2846]
 13. The game appears to be not responding when loading later saves and sometimes after clicking End Turn - this is only temporary though. [#2770]
 14. The game will crash when launching from steam if you have a Air Display's virtual graphics adapter running. As a work around you can disable this adapter. [#2780]
 15. UI becomes sluggish after several hours of play [#2695]
 16. After Gene Plague Omega occurs, statistics represent the state of affairs before the plague. [#2873]
 17. Avoid megadeaths bonus is awarded a turn too early. [#2866]
 18. Framerate drops noticeably when card history is open in the region screen. [#2342]
 19. Game manual is out of date. [#2718]
 20. Global announcement of temperature change happens a turn late. [#2421]
 21. Graphs with both positive and negative values occasionally have alignment issues. [#2709]
 22. Music has been reported to, on occasion, stop after several hours of play; restarting the game resolves this. [#2694]
 23. Population graph does not mention that the value is in millions. [#2867]
 24. Some resources may show numbers slightly below zero as the amount remaining. [#2621]
 25. Some stages of Antarctic devastation may not be displayed correctly in the Earth Change view. [#2506]
 26. Some statistics will not make a lot of sense with extremely low population (below 1 million). [#2669]
 27. Stacked graphs with negative components do not represent the totals properly. [#2468]
 28. Height of stacked graph columns sometimes do not add up to the total for the stat. [#2591]
 29. Instrument predictor pointers animate from 0 rather than from previous turn's temperature/emissions values when loading from a save game, while the '2100' predictor stays at the bottom after loading a game after 2100. [#2673]
 30. Sudden changes from 0 sometimes result in incorrect graphs. [#2724]
 31. The globe becomes stretched horizontally after the game has been left idle for a long period of time. [#1836]
 32. The panel last visited in regional Telemetry is preserved when starting a new mission. [#2360]
 33. Transport Emissions graph in regional Transport panel does not show predictions. [#2660]
 34. You can sometimes be awarded an achievement for completing a mission after losing it on the last turn (e. g. Fuel Crisis in 2120). [#2851]
 35. Maldives scene in the introduction movie sometimes starts with the camera at the wrong position. [#2723]
 36. Intro can become out of sync with the music on some systems. [#2723]
 37. News button tooltip refers to obsolete report category names. [#2821]
 38. Annual Emissions Summary tooltips and Temperature/Emission screen predictors react too strongly to changes in the previous turn. [#2721]
