This support wiki is a central place for common solutions, known issues and workarounds.

A lot of information is specific to your operating system.

Planetary Annihilation is currently available for:

The most important minimum requirements are:

  • 8 GB RAM (ideally more)
  • OpenGL 3.2+ graphics support with 1GB VRAM
  • 1 Mbit/s or faster reliable broadband internet connection for online
  • 64 bit operating system

Integrated graphics requires more RAM.

An SSD will dramatically improve startup and loading times.

PA can be played online using Uber servers (no local server) using less RAM on highly optimised systems:

Before reporting please check Windows Support Wiki and the list of Windows Incompatible Software.

For Windows please upload a DxDiag.txt created by pressing [WinKey]+R, typing "dxdiag", and pressing "Save All Information...".

Update Your Windows Graphics Drivers

Make sure you have the latest drivers and get them directly from the manufacturer.

Laptop manufacturers are notorious for providing out of date graphics drivers that are often many years old. Download your graphics drivers directly from Intel, AMD or NVIDIA.

If you have hybrid graphics then you need to update both even if you only use the discrete graphics card.
