  1. I wanted to revisit a childhood memory of mine, that being the 2010 game Transformers: War for Cybertron. However, the game will not launch! Whenever I press start, it shows the splash page, and then boots back to my desktop. And just to let you know, I've tried running it in compatibility mode and copying all PhysX files to the Binaries folder, both of which are recommended on the PCGamingWiki page, and it still won't launch. The other tip it uses to try and get it to launch refers to the STEAM VERSION. And in case you don't know, You can't buy War for Cybertron or its sequels on Steam anymore. I tried to buy it on console (specifically my PS3), and on G2A (which I don't condone nor support) and it turns out that the game and its sequels are popular targets for Scalpers, which is never a good thing. I'm using a pirated installation, and because of these random crashes, I'm just mad. Anyone got any ideas to get this game to launch in Non-Steam versions?
  2. Good news! The WineD3D method worked perfectly! Now none of the textures and lighting are broken! Now that we have a way to fix this, I think we should probably edit the game's PCGamingWiki page to list WineD3D as an essential file, as playing without it results in a 50/50 chance of broken textures on some systems.
  3. Although my computer can run its sequel, BlackSite, without a hitch besides having to enable vsync, I think that on certain systems, Area 51's textures are broken. The game starts fine, but the lighting becomes dark, and the textures become non-existent when I begin playing. Keep in mind, my PC specs include an AMD Ryzen processor and an RTX 2060 card. I should be able to run this game without a hitch, but no matter what I try, be it reinstalling the game, installing it in another directory, running in compatibility mode or trying the Project Dreamland version, the textures remain broken. It's a shame too, because Area 51 is a truly underrated gem and one of the better shooters of the 2000s, and I wanted to play through it again. Anyone have any ideas to what is happening?
