Thanks for trying anyways! [editline]26th January 2012[/editline] I am going to try the 11.12 drivers, because I think my problem started after 12.1 was released yesterday.
You know is there such a thing as a Windows compatibility wiki or database? That'd be a good place to put this. [editline]28th January 2012[/editline] The Vision control center is a rebranded CCC that appears if you have an AMD CPU with an AMD GPU.
Nitro Family: works, but NoCD is required (StarForce 3.3 gives internal error 1275).
True crime NYC glitches on it.
Does Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, and Skyrim work ?
I've tried some games with my Windows 8 tablet, I'm also reporting whether it is tablet friendly (If it works with only Touch input and nothing else) Title: osu!

-Added most recent games submitted by Sam Za Nemisis to master list. -Added a console emulator section. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] -All steam games have been hyperlinked to their steam store pages. This took roughly half an hour to do, so I hope you appreciate it.
Just don't use Windows 8 and all compatibility problems are solved.
Anyone know if Fallout New Vegas is workable?
Title: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Works in Window Mode: yes Works in Fullscreen: yes On Steam: yes Tablet Compatible: ???
Anyone tested Battlefield 3? I'm going to buy it and I just upgraded to windows 8 (Silly me, I should have created a partition) and, obviously, I want to know if it will work...
[QUOTE=Megolas;34961770]Anyone tested Battlefield 3? I'm going to buy it and I just upgraded to windows 8 (Silly me, I should have created a partition) and, obviously, I want to know if it will work...[/QUOTE] It should work, unless it has some sort of advanced Anti-hack that wont run in Windows 8, that verifies the OS's version number, rather than actual compatibility. (Case in Point: Rusty Hearts works, but the anti-cheat/hack utility is not designed for 8, so thus, the game doesn't work.) [editline]2nd March 2012[/editline] Added Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, with Link to Steam Store Page.
Title: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Works in Window Mode: Yes Works in Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: Yes Title: Alan Wake Works in Window Mode: Yes Works in Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: Yes Title: The Darkness 2 Works in Window Mode: Yes Works in Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: Yes

I have not had any problem with any games yet!
Title: Goldsrc Games Works in Window Mode: Yes Works in Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: Yes I had trouble with OpenGL mode being forced to software mode. Have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200. Using default Win8 Drivers since AMD driver installs don't detect this model for some reason.
Borderlands works now

I'm going to buy it and I just upgraded to windows 8 (Silly me, I should have created a partition) and, obviously, I want to know if it will work...[/QUOTE] Battlefield 3 works perfectly, I actually got around 10fps boost compared to 7. Title: Battlefield 3 Works in Window Mode: Yes Works in Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: No
Does window 8 gives any perfomance boost and i stable enough to install as main os?
[QUOTE=werewolf0020;34993957]Does window 8 gives any perfomance boost and i stable enough to install as main os?[/QUOTE] It is considerably quicker than 7, stability is a bit iffy though.
oh nice.. but i mean is it stable enough for me to keep playing my games normally? with out expecting any errors crashes etc
[QUOTE=werewolf0020;34994928]oh nice.. but i mean is it stable enough for me to keep playing my games normally? with out expecting any errors crashes etc[/QUOTE] I think that a lot of the stability issues are hardware related. I haven't had a single crash yet, but some people report a bazillion. Premature drivers and stuff, I guess. You might have a load of problems, and you might have none. I recommend dual-booting.
[QUOTE=Leather Belt;34986127]Battlefield 3 works perfectly, I actually got around 10fps boost compared to 7. Title: Battlefield 3 Works in Window Mode: Yes Works in Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: No[/QUOTE] Campaign missions may crash when you chuck a frag grenade (happened to me, didn't happen on windows 7)
Kinda obvious at this point, but I'm just gonna go ahead and confirm that CS:GO works ~just fine~ on nearly every combination of graphics settings. Here's a few others ----------------- Emulator Title: DeSmuME Windowed: Yes Fullscreen: Yes (chronic stuttering and framerate loss are present though) Tablet Compatible: Unknown ----------------- Title: Ghost Recon Online (Beta) Windowed: No Fullscreen: Yes (i noticed major hiccups (skipping a ton of frames sometimes) but that could be because ubisoft cannot into servers) On Steam: No ----------------- Title: Tribes Ascend Windowed: Yes Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: No (for now at least) ----------------- Title: Mass Effect Windowed: Yes Fullscreen: Yes On Steam: Yes ----------------- Title: Mirror's Edge Windowed: Yes Fullscreen: Yes (noticeable drop in fps on lower to middle end hardware though) On Steam: Yes Gonna try Borderlands out for myself even though the OP says it doesn't work [img]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/rainbow.png[/img] If any of these were mentioned in the thread but not added to the OP, I apologize for not reading. I just want to contribute.
BTW, Bulletstorm does work on steam.
Gonna be painful adding in the next batch of games to the list. I should make a way to automate it somehow... Like adding tags to words to automatically replace them with the proper BB Code.
Title: Battlefield 3 Works in Window Mode: yes Works in Fullscreen: yes On Steam: Origin Tablet Compatible: No - Pen input is useless Additional Notes: Game may crash in single player when you toss a frag grenade, also closing the game may use more RAM than normal for 20 seconds (RANDOM)
Yes I'm late but I needed to add the additional notes.
True crime Nyc doesnt work it glitches.. Sorry didn't noticed i already said.
Deus EX (The old ones) only works in window The Guild (All of the version) Works perfect Simcity 4 isn't working for me, just stars and closes.
