Nexuiz will not open.
Nexuiz won't open, I assume it's because of my computer? It's a windows 8 laptop.

Someone suggested to add a new rule for the games .exe in windows firewall. It worked for me after creating an Outbound rule. This means you can't take advantage of the game's online features I think, but at least it will start.

I think by disabling your connection to the internet it also will start up, however running it from Steam offline mode with your internet still connected may still cause a crash. You can play around with that if the firewall method won't work for you I suppose.

Did the game previously used to be able to run on windows 8? Since we can't look at the store page and I've never tried myself, I can't say for sure that it is supported.

Hopefully there's still something left to say for the future of this game. Devs?

like reise said the only way i've found to get nexuiz to run since the online modes were essentially broken after THQ went under....1 disable your internet connection and then 2. run the game from windows explorer

a desktop shortcut may work as well as long as it points directly to the exe and not like the typical steam shortcuts
