How to play on Windows 7

★★★★ Novice

Please don't post operating system drama, like "y u not use windows 10." This is a forum guide, not a Twitter thread.

 

If you're encountering this error whenever you try to launch the game:

The procedure entry point DXGIGetDebugInterface1 could not be located in the dynamic link library dxgi.dll

Then just do the following:


* Download ReShade: https://reshade.me/
* Run it and choose Star Wars Squadrons from the list of games it shows you.
* It will ask you what post processing effects you want. I just chose the default settings.
* Once done, run the game. If you want to get rid of the ReShade bar at the top, hit the "HOME" key and click "Skip Tutorial." Then hit the "ESC" key and it should fade from the screen. If it doesn't, press HOME again.
* Have fun!
