    Windows 8

    L.A Noire


    Hi,

    Has anyone been able to get this game to run in Windows 8? Upon hitting launch, the game goes to a black screen and then crashes. Looking on the Steam forums, a few others using Windows 8 have encountered the problem, so I guess it is the likely culprit.

    Is there anything that can be done to fix it?

    Thanks.

    *Here is the Steam thread for reference.

    I think you're having same problem as me with Battlefield 3... I've been looking for solution last few days, and I haven't found anything useful

    Unfortunately none of the compatibility settings make any difference. I've tried a few other suggestions, such as running Steam and the actual executables as an admin and also turning off my virus protection, still nothing.

    It might be a stupid question, but in order for it to run on Windows 8, would the W8 team need to do something? Or would it be the developers of LA Noire?

    Battlefield 3 runs fine on my end, so I wouldn't think it is a Windows 8 problem.

    May I know what kind GPU u have ? I have problems with Battlefield 3, when running on multiGPU it crashes like you said above. Try to run game in singleGPU mode. I have 295GTX and it is in nVidia Control Panel, I can help you with this, but if you have ATI i dont have any experiences with it, i think it's called crossfire or somehow, you need to disable it. Good luck
