"Failed to initialize player" error in Crossover 18.5.0 t

I have been running the "Human Anatomy Atlas" without any issue for 3 Crossover versions now.
My setup is Elementary OS 5.0 64 bit based on Ubuntu 18.04, running on an Asus UX310UA-GL100T.
After upgrading Crossover 18.0.0 to 18.5.0, the Atlas has stopped working, presenting this "Error" dialog instead.

GL: failed to choose pixel format for dc 24004e
GLContext warn: failed to setup offscreen pixel format: Invalid window handle.
GLContext: failed to create offsceen context: Invalid window handle.
Failed to initialize Direct3D 9.updating

The same will pop up after re-installing with success the software.
Could anyone help me find out what might be causing such behaviour?
Thank you in advance,
