Anyone try Bully on Windows 8?
I'm getting this odd bug on win8.. clothes/skin below head but above waist is all black (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=91490170). Is this happening to anyone else?

It could be the fact you're on windows 8 and I do not think this game supports it so it will be doing weird ♥♥♥♥ to the code..

Well this game is old and still buggy so that was my first thought... and if rockstar never fixed it that would not surprise me lol. Considering how long it took them to just get it to not crash LOL.

I have another theroy to it.. that it is a Nvidia driver issue. So input from ati owners would be a bonus. I will do further testing once nvidia publishes a new win8 driver.

The Scholarship edition is a remake with better graphichs, even tough you could hardly find bugs in the first version so KtecK fact is wrong, he is just giving an opinion without actually having played the game.
It's normal that it doesn't work, I tried with Windows 8 and I had the bug. This game will update soon for Windows 8 in Bully Drivers, so no worries!

Actually i've had the game since retail release years ago and bought steam one when i lost disc when i moved and got many play throughs under the belt.

First version was bad enough that valve went against its no refund policy and gave hundreds of refunds on the game. On retail version i've lost many hours of progress in crashes that happened before i could get to save points. The crashes are rare now luckily so they did fix that :).

I look forward to the potential update (Last update was in 2009) since i've been forced to play it on one of my win7 laptops.

Fyi my Bully Scholarship Edition videos on yotube linked to on this profile back my years of play ;)

The same happened to me, but was a graphic driver issue. I had the Windows 8 driver installed, and that was causing the bug, i re-installed the Windows 7 driver (in compatiblity mode) and it fixed it. (I have a GForce 9500GT, old but still working)

Hmm sounds like bug with the win8 drivers in general.. i'm on the nvidia win8 driver for my gt240.

Will try forcing 7 driver thanks for that.

Edit: Worked like a charm :)

windows 8 is incompatible with everything you may as well give up

Why does everyone keep censoring there own words with hearts? Its girly and are you afraid of cursing or something?

I haven't tested on Win 8, but I do have a question regarding the washed out look I get outdoors. I've Googled it to death with no result. Is there some sort of simple fix I'm not familiar with?

You may want to keep your eye on this thread as well; seems like the same problem:

It wasn't a remake with better graphics* it was done because bully got banned so rockstar games removed a bad mission... also bully doesn't need drivers to work and it also works fine on windows 8.. so go back to school.

Actually some older win8 drivers did cause issues with the game... updating to latest at the time of finding the issue fixed it tho.
