I'm running Workstation Pro 12.5.7, soon to be 12.5.8. Didn't know that 14 was out (from the other thread) - haven't received any upgrade notices.
I'll try disabling the 3D hardware acceleration on the display, but I don't have quite the same symptoms as reported in the other thread... I don't get any play at ALL. Just the shell prompt back after "Importing game controller configs".
Is the May 18th date on the executable correct? This seems very strange since the dates on the directories in the archive (and all the data files in the *Data directory) are November 28th.
I'll try disabling the 3D acceleration and let you know.
