    Comment: The game will not render text labels on the buttons in certain situations such as the main menu, and settings/options menus when using the D3DMetal setting in CrossOver. However the game runs perfectly otherwise. If you change the setting to DXVK, the game runs perfectly and the menu text labels all render correctly. There is no discernible performance issues with this game.

    Comment: No issues with graphics or rendering. When playing a large multiplayer game (4 or more), need to lower graphics settings for acceptable frame rate (see comments). If playing with more than 4 players (computer or human), lower all settings under Graphics > Quality to "Medium" and set frame rate limit to 30 to stop skipped frames.
