Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but for most of the past year that I've been testing Windows 8, I haven't been able to play games.
When I was on the Developer Preview it was working until an ATI Driver update came out. It hasn't worked since.
The problem occurs, when loading (for example): Nexuiz. Each frame loads unbearably slowly, as does the sound.
I thought it would work today since I just installed the released version of Windows 8 over Consumer Preview, but it still isn't working. Also tried installing the latest [Windows 7] drivers from ATI's site. Same trouble.
System specifications (Dell Studio 17)
- Intel Core i7 740QM @ 1.73GHz
- 6.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 664MHz (9-9-9-24)
- Dell Inc. 0J509P (U2E1)
- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM v1.1) (Dell)
How do I get games—such as Nexuiz—to work on Windows 8?
