Before anything else, let me thank the devs for so many quality games. I started with Birth of America (amazing little game, that one) soon became addicted, and now own three other titles, ACW2 among them. Great job, and keep them coming!
Now, to my technical issue, which I suppose is rather rare.
I own Steam Link, essentially Valve's glorified version of Chromecast, which streams Steam games from your computer to the TV. I find it extremely useful, as I can play my games in the living room without having to hide away in the office like a hermit for hours on end.
As it happens, it's not very friendly to strategy games (I must be the only one trying to run stuff like War in the East on it) and ACW2 is no exception: when I try to launch it via Steam Link, it says it found no "compatible Direct3D device" and quits to desktop.
Now, I suspect this must be because of the mirroring, since it runs just fine on that same computer without Steam Link streaming to the telly, and I suppose there is no chance in heaven or hell that it will get patched, as I suppose the niche market for using ACW2 via Steam Link is basically one person (me), but I would love it if anyone knew a workaround or filthy hack to make it work.
Thanks in advance!
