Does it work on windows 8.1?
Can anyone confirm if this works on windows 8.1?
For the record: I loved this game, if someone says it works on modern OS's buy it! :summerghost:

Hi guys, yes, it does! But you have to follow the prompt to install “directplay”.

Cheers,

@Black Forest Games: Does it run smooth on your machine? I got a AMD Phenom II X6 CPU @ 3,3 GHz and an AMD Radeon HD6870 running a Windows 8.1 system and the game is extreme slow and laggy, doesnt make fun at all. :/

Hi guys,

That is indeed strange, we are looking into the issue.

@ Does it run smooth on your machine?
Well, with similar specs it was running good on our side, I was even able to record some quality footage for that trailer.

Hey, does the Game also run on Win 7 (x64)???
I loved it!

Hi all,

@FPS
Btw if you mean that the game runs only at 20fps and not let's say 60fps, that’s actually how it is supposed to work (retro engine tech from 1997…).

@Win 7 (x64)
Yes, that’s one out our QA machines and it runs well (20 fps, but that's how the game engine is).

Regards,
BFG

Thanks for your fast reply, in the mean time i did some more testing and got some new informations. It seems like the game only lags in the main hall of the airport. Dialogs and menues in other locations (eg. bar, airplane vendor) are fine. To be more precise, the game does not lag, its more like its skipping, like render -> pause -> render -> pause... I made a little Video for you guys to show you what i mean. In it you can see the skipping behaviour of the courser in the main hall (compared to the short sequenz in the office, where the courser moves smooth). Also the extrem slow scrolling. Furthermore the game freezes for about one or two seconds when a new background song starts just like as the game has problems with memory management.
video driver is the latest. CPU and GPU usage are between 20 - 30%.

Thanks a ton, Pimmelhelm!

That looks like an accurate investigation on the issue and enough details to keep our tech guys busy.

I got the game started on Windows 8.1 using Win98 or XP compatibility. The thing is though that especially scrolling in the main is extremely slow/laggy, which kind of makes it impossible to play.

I've got the same problems here, the game is really slow in the the airport hall, in the offices its works normal. Because of the lags playing is no fun. Steam is there a solution for this lag? Or can we get a refund of the money we paid?

Same here. Anyone else having extremely low resolution ingame, besides of the lagging? Watch the gameplay video and compare in HD.

I'd love to know if BFG already looked into the matter? Im quite disappointed with buying a game that doesn't work...

Hi! I bought this game yesterday but just like you guys are disqussing its running extremely slow in the main hall. Looks like there is some kind of trouble with compatibility. I have also experienced that the game suddenly stops and exits from previous iterations (not Steam-version, yet). I sure hope thats not also a problem with this game. Its a great game. Strange the game has not been tested before release. Paying for a broken game...
