Just an update for anyone that plays Warsow and gets the Failed to load UI DLL message.

Edit your Warsow link and modify the following:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Warsow 0.6\warsow_x64.exe" +set fs_usehomedir 0 +set fs_basepath "C:/Program Files (x86)/Warsow 0.6"

Change it to +set fs_userhomedir 1 and Warsow will load correctly.

How are you getting DragonNest to work?

The hackshield stops it from working on my (and AFAIK everyone else's) version of Windows8...

Same with xtrap and gameguard games....

Well seeing as how we have a list of working AV for Windows 8, might as well start one for working games. If you want to contribute, feel free to do so! :)

Windows 8 Developer Preview Build 8102.

Legend:
GREEN = Working
RED = Not working
BLUE = Additional information


Age of Empires 3 - Gives compatibility warning when starting age3.exe, but game works flawlessly if you ignore it.
AssaultCube
FlyForFantasy
KalOnline
Perfect World International
Pogo.com
Quake Live
Rome: Total War
Runescape
Team Fortress 2 - (Reported by iliveinabucket)
The Sims 3
Warsow
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

How did you manage to get PWI to work I can't for anything the texture on character's and other bits of graphics fall out and get worse the longer I play. Could you provide me with details on what software you have running I have all the flash player and DirectX installed.

I use a Logitech Game-pad and had to install its driver software in XP SP3 compatibility mode, but works great.
