desktop composition disabled
New, NormalPublic

Description

Game ran fine through tutorial op until returning to Kavala after securing convoy, at which point the game completely froze. Error message received was that the desktop composition was disabled, searched the internet to see if I could enable, found that Windows 10 no longer supports this function. Unsure how to proceed. Will attach error file
