Empire: Total War and Windows 8 incompatibility
I own this game since it has been released, have over 200 hours of gameplay in it, not a single glitch since then. Recently upgraded to Win 8, and having an annoying thing since. When I move my cursor ingame to the lower left corner or the right edge, the game starts alt-tabbing 3-4 times between the desktop and the game back and forth - I guess it's the starting screen icon and the search bar interference. I hope they do sg about it, even though the game is not a youngster.

For me Win 8 is much better I had anything before named Windows. Everything is faster, even I like the interface. Anyway, I want to keep it, I use it only playing, nothing can beat OSX.

Ryan: if you have some time, keep playing for a while, it's usually starts to happen in 20-30 mins. Actually I saw yesterday the log in screen for a second - it looks like it tries to go to sleep, maybe does not recognize I'm using some app? No idea honestly.

Try playing around with compatibility options?
Try throwing that computer in the garbage because windows 8 soiled it.

lol so funny to see win 8 haters everywhere. IMHO win 8 is better than 7 too and yes I have it on my desktop pc gaming (oh my god now it's a tablet lol) and yes Empire Total War works fine even with Darthmod installed.
