Good luck with that. Windows 8 isn't supported.

I haven't even tried this on my Windows 7 PC. It does run on XP.
I have it installed on an old Alienware P4.

Try running it in XP compatibility.

Also, Vurt did a texture mod for Gothic 2 and it's awesome. It should be posted here somewhere.

Found it: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2709867

To fix this install the Gothic and Gothic II fullscreen border fix. Both Gothic and Gothic II will now go fullscreen properly. I built this using the GOG versions but it should work with any release as well as any mod using GothicMod. Mods that modify the EXE in other ways might not be fixed by this package.

For those curious about the technical specifics, this package tells Windows to use the ForceSimpleWindow compatiblity fix when running the Gothic EXEs (it doesn't modify any files directly). Other games displaying such behaviour might also respond to ForceSimpleWindow but you'll have to make your own package (this one only fixes Gothic/Gothic II).

EDIT: updated with new easy installation method (in-game result is identical).

Ah, it looks like Steam uses a different file name for the Gothic II EXE. I've updated the fix package to include it. Try downloading and installing it again and see if it works now (you can install it over top of the existing one).

On Step 2, does downloading that toolkit work with Windows 8? It doesn't say Windows 8 is supported...
