Compatibility Windows 8 RESOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No need to modificate the exe with compatibilities like 16bit colors, XP...

How to do that:
1) Download wined3d.exe from http://www.nongnu.org/wined3d/
2) Don't run the program! instead, extract it's contents with 7Zip or somesuch http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
3) Copy ddraw.dll, libwine.dll and wined3d.dll from extracted $SYSWIN folder into the root folder of your JA2 installation (e.g. C:\Games\Jagged Alliance 2 Gold\)
4) Run the game. It may take a bit longer to start
5) Enjoy one of the best games ever in as high FPS as your hardware can handle

Holy crap that was a fair amount of tinkering. I'll wait til something a bit simpler more in line with my limited abilities comes along. Yikes.

To get in run on Win 8.1, you only need to delete Intro.slf !

But, you need to do these steps with wined3d too. Because without wined3d the bullets fly very slow...

There is no files like "ddraw.dll" in this archive. There is dxgi.dll, d3d8.dll, еtс.
I copied all that were in the folder JA2 - at the start of the game had no effect, nothing has changed.

Hope this would help someone.

1. Go to http://www.nongnu.org/wined3d/

2. Look for:
Full directory (with older versions, patches...): http://download.savannah.nongnu.org/releases/wined3d

3. Than look for v1.1.38 / 24-Jun-2013 20:02
4. Download the wined3d.exe
5. Extract It with 7zip.
6. Copy ddraw.dll, libwine.dll and wined3d.dll from extracted $SYSDIR folder into the root folder of your JA2 installation

7. ???????
