someone has been playing quake in windows 8? I installed windows 8 pro and I could not play, when I start the game gets stuck help: (
some plugin for windows 8?
update your gpu drivers, some older gpus dont work correctly in windows 8 due to new features that older gpus dont/cant support. ie ati cards that are not 5000+ not sure which nvidia cards have issues
Amd 8350 - 4816.08 MHz on air
Asus GTX660 DirectCU
Windows 8 x64 + geforce 8800 GT issue at latest nvidia driver 306.97:
Cant play fullscreen - game crashes when full screen is selectet
seems like several others have the same problem... in your place i would not upgrade
Try running QL in Mozilla Firefox when using Windows 8. This worked for me.
Internet Explorer: Can't install Plugin (Perhaps a Java-Issue??)
Opera: Crashes when selecting fullscreen (Perhaps a Java-Issue??)
So I now have Firefox installed in order to play QL
Hope this helps for you aswell!
QL works perfectly for me in win8 in chrome/firefox, I haven't tested IE but know it can't work in metro IE as that doesn't support plugins.
The nvidia drivers that windows update automatically installs (currently 306.97) work perfectly on my 460 gtx, they give full openGL support. they are the same drivers that you get if you go to the nvidia driver website and select the current WHQL build.
As for ATI I don't know I don't have any ATI gear to test, sorry.
You could also try with QLPrism - works like a charm for me now.
In the past I had many connection problems (ql would disconnect mid-game, and had to do a net_restart to solve it), but it seems that bug has been solved now
