Hi,
Ive installed and run XWA (GoG version) without issue. I then installed the XWAU, however on running it I get an error "DeviceResources:Initialize - The parameter is incorrect". I clear that but get another error "DirectDraw INIT Failed at 0", the game then quits back to desktop. I've tried various compatibility mode settings but nothing seems to work, any suggestions? Thanks!

Windows 10 pro 64bit

Update:
made a little progress, I downloaded JeremyaFr's xwa_ddraw_d3d11 from the downloads section and coied these to the XWA directory, I then renamed dinput.dll, the game now runs, however it crashes to desktop when the level loading screen is up.
