    Windows 8 Compatibility???

    Hi Team AOEO,

    Greetings.

    I have a query.

    Is AOEO compatible with Windows 8?

    Awaiting your response.

    I am on Windows 8 since the beta and been running AoEO like a champ, as champish as it runs, anyway.

    It is not native, tho. You need to download GfWL or Steam.

    Doesn't work for me. It says I need Live sign-in assistant, and when I download the sign-in assistant, it doesn't install it: no errors, nothing, just stops installing. Can't get AoEO to run in Win8.

    You still haven't been able to get it to work for you?  Did you try all of the suggestions we gave you in this thread?  I would submit a support ticket here if you haven't already.  I have been running this game on several differents installs of Windows 8 without an issue as long as I download and install .NET 3.5 then GFWL.

    I installed Windows 8 a couple of days ago, and it seems to work fine.

    Its your drivers. Your Age of Mythology also gives you BSOD, but works fine for me.

    Runs fine. Win 8 runs everything win7 does, it just has a new start screen.

    Re: Windows 8 Compatibility???

    Personally i hate windows 8, if I wanted a smartphone display I would have gotten a smartphone.....


    I would like to thank GPG and MS for creating such an amazing game, i put 350+ hours into it.
    good luck with future projects and may this game still see a long life ahead of it in its support phase

    That was my first thought, but after a bit of research, I decided it was okay.

     

    After having a go at it, I find it is actually okay with a mouse and keyboard.

     

    I can do everything I could do in Windows 7 as far as gaming is concerned, and I'm happy with my switch over to windows 8.
