Windows 8?

Postby Firefly » Fri Mar 06, 2015 12:07 pm

Did anyone get Descent rebirth working on Windows 8?
soon as I run the program, Windows 8 give me the message that it stopped responding before it gets the chance.

I have used it on Windows 8.1. I didn't have to do anything special. I just migrated the same install I have on my Windows 7 machine. Sorry I can't be of more help. I could do some testing if you have something specific you want me to look at.

Are you using the same descent data on each version of windows? Have you tried compatibility mode? My other thought is to make sure that the windows 8 dpi scaling isn't affecting descent.
