Likewise. I haven't found much of a work around either.
I am playing on W7 just fine, but W8 just simply and flat out doesn't launch the game, no matter what I tinker with.
I've re-installed from scratch, tinkered with the TL.exe and TERA.exe files, adjusted security settings and even stripped all of the security I could down to nothing, but still. It doesn't cooperate.
At this point its in BHS/EME hands.
I am sorry to those folks that don't have alternative OS or other options.
TERA doesn't support Windows 8. Virtual Machines are great for testing operating systems.
Here is what everyone of you should have done. Dual booted your [filtered] machines. Hard concept isn't it. I am sure you all had the harddrive space to partition off 50 or so GB for Windows 7. But naw, its a release preview(aka release condidate) it should be good to go right? Guess you all were wrong.
Yeah, the above response is just flame bait.
Stop trolling the topic.
I'm interested as well in Windows 8 support. I'm pretty sure I won't be running it on my main system, but I still care.
It's also fun and interesting to figure out a problem.
Listening to someone raging about what they perceive as a complaint gets old fast. Go create your own topic about your feelings if you must.
In fact EME, in case you are wondering I'd pay extra for a well moderated server and message forum here.
Why would I create my own topic when there is a topic here that I can express my opinion in? Creating a topic about something when a topic already exists is against the forum rules. And I am not trolling the topic either. You can't expect a company to support a non official release version of an OS. I can almost guarantee you that developers for all kinds of software are testing their products on a version of Windows 8 that isn't available to the public yet.
Your "contribution" to the topic is nil. Nada. Nothing. All you are doing is arguing a straw man. Most of the posters with the OP's problem just want to figure out a solution.
While some Windows 8 users are understandably frustrated about it, most of us understand that it is a *problem* for some. And, Windows 8 final will be a reality soon enough.
So if you want to make a topic called "How I hate that anyone talks about getting Tera to work under Windows 8" knock yourself out.
