    Flyff? Wasn't that one of those really low-budget cookie-cutter korean MMOs from like.. early 2000s? Many of those ran some DRM anti-cheat software (nProtect or something?) that often installed deeper in your system than you would ever feel comfortable with. Chances are, that software doesn't like Windows 8, as it's very different under the hood. Also, with the age of the game (as well as its apparent low budget design), it's possible the game itself may lose compatibility with newer OS's if it was that poorly coded.

    If the "nProtect" software does work, then maybe you need to set the game to run in compatibility mode for XP. This is an XP-era game, after all.

    I was assuming win 7 would be enough, but you can always try the windows xp mode, it is a virtual machine that's running Windows XP.

    Not sure if it works on Win 8 though..

    More details can be found here:

    Windows XP Mode was replaced by Hyper-V being a built-in thing with Windows 8 Pro, I think.

    You are entirely right.

    Which is a shame by the way, because now you have to provide a legitimate serial by yourself.. the copy you had to download from Microsoft had the whole package..

    Windows 8


    So I am also running windows 8 and cannot seem to get my flyff up recently flyff went through a series of changes (adding in new in game things through many patches, new places, etc.) so the game is now called flyff gold, i'm not sure if their still running the initial files that windows 8 was interfering with, however I do know that everytime I run the game, it crashes after a minute or so, what steps must I take to resolve this problem?
