TF2 on Windows 8

http://imgur.com/a/3tVQC

So... yeah.
I'm using Nvidia's latest drivers for Windows 8.
On Windows 7, TF2 runs fine with the same config.
Not sure if this is a problem with TF2 or Windows 8.

(People thinking to answer with "lolwin8sux" are advised to leave their immature crap somewhere else)

This.

If TF2 is working on Win7, then it's a Win8 or Driver problem.

That's your opinion, but I like Metro. Aero is outdated.

1) Windows 8 is still in beta.
2) Video card drivers are also in beta for windows 8.

I guess if you can use Metro with a mouse and keyboard as well as Aero, more power to you. It does suck that TF2 doesn't run well on it, though.

Newsflash: Software in beta often doesn't work properly.

There's nothing about a beta there. :/

Yeah, well, the entire damned operating system is in beta (aka "release preview"), so...

1. Microsoft has never released a complete product in it's life.

2. Issues running TF2 were commonplace with Windows 7 early on and are still experienced by some users.

3. Issues running TF2 are still quite commonplace with Windows Vista.

4. No similar issues exist for users running on macs, or using Windows XP.

5. Bill Gates used to openly brag about how he'd force people to upgrade or buy buy updated software versions in a number of still quite well read magazines.

6. Microsoft has made no promises of forward compatability for software on any of it's operating system releases except for Windows XP (which took a few years and still requires an emulator for many programs) and Windows 95 (which did so abysmally many games that came out later were more compatible under DOS or Windows 3.1)

7. Microsoft has also made getting drivers to work properly a major pain, and NVIDIA and ATI have both made well publicized complaints about Microsoft seemingly going to lengths to break their drivers.

I hope Valve would support Windows 8 as much as they supported previous versions of Windows. Besides, it'd be unfair to deprive users just because of their OS; it's not their fault that all new PCs now have Windows 8 on them.
I had my doubts about 8 at first, but seeing it in action has changed my mind in a positive way. I mean, at least it has a desktop and a few new good features on it, I'm happy. I hope more games would support this new OS.

Valve does not like w8, not sure what that means for support for it, but yeah...

Don't worry, the blackness is merely the result of the nuclear winter caused by the payload cart explosions
