    Windows 8


    Okay guys here my list

    Crysis 2 on steam Works but is stuck in windowed mode and i cant change the res it says something like unspecified if you change the res in the game

    Battlefield bad company 2 works great but it keeps switching into windowed mode whenever i move my mouse to the bottom left of the screen....i think the windows botton is the problem

    Bioshock doesnt work....it start but when u go to new game and i starts to load the game freezes and i have to restart my comp

    Company of Heroes doesnt work either...it starts but i only hear sound and the screen is blank and it for some reason is minimized when the game lauches

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a no go it wont let me change my resolution and the game just closes if i try to start a game

    All my games are on steam so ive verified the game cache on all of them and there all good
    ive tryed taking off crossfire but doesnt help
    manualy launching the games in compatibility mode and no luck lol
    tried using the windows 7 ccc driver and the windows 8 drivers and i get the same problem (i dont like using the windows 8 one cause i cant use ccc with it)


    *update i disabled the new windows button and got the old style back so now when i hover over the start menu nothing happens like show time and stuff and now it doesnt make BFBC 2 go into windowed mode anymore

    Dirt 3 Doesn't launch at all from steam, tried running in compatability mode for 7, nothing, tried running for vista, nothing, tried XP, nothing, guess it just doesn't work.

    Edit: Nevermind, it's something to do with my install, no games launch from the desktop on my system with Nvidia 280.26 drivers

    Hmmm I seen that The Sims 3 was listed (is huge The Sims fan), That'd be cool if Flight Simulator X still works for Win 8, I've really wanted to invest in a fight stick.
