DirectX 12 error

Your graphics card does not support DirectX 12. The game only works through this API.

SSE4 error

Your processor is too old and does not support SSE4 instructions. Perhaps in the future, an update for older processors will be released for the game. And at the moment there is only an unofficial solution for this problem: you can download the fix here (for version 1.812.1.0).
