MBAACC issues on Windows 8
« on: May 28, 2013, 08:49:15 AM »
I cannot seem to get the game working on Windows 8 in Revision 1.2 or 1.4. In 1.4 both mbaacctool and MBAA.exe refuse to launch altogether, while in 1.2 mbaacctool will have the game launch as a big black screen. My drivers and directx are updated and I have no problems with any other game in this manner.
Thanks in advance for your help!

So I'm currently having what I suspect to be Windows 8 related issues as well.

Whenever I boot up the game it loads the launcher properly but when the actual game starts I get a mostly white screen with some of the main menu's text on it.  I can navigate the menu but the game is otherwise unplayable.

Anyone have any luck running Melty successfully on a Windows 8 PC?

Can confirm that CC runs fine on Windows 8.

I actually have ended up fixing this problem, turns out I was just being silly and need to reinstall my drivers!
I would easily recommend trying to update/install drivers first thing for that problem, as it's exactly what happened to me.

^ That sounds more like a video card problem than a Windows 8 problem. Mind posting the specs (should be in the SystemInformation tab in the MBAACC loader)?

Here are my specs

[ OS ]
Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) (9200.win8_gdr.130410-1505)
[ CPU ]
AMD A10-4600M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics   (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
[ MEMORY ]
8192MB RAM
[ DISPLAY ]
1600 x 900 (32 bit) (60Hz)

[ DisplayAdapter ]
AMD Radeon HD 7660G
4044 MB RAM
DriverVersion : 8.17.0010.1140

[ DirectX ]
DirectX 11

I'll go update my video drivers and see what happens.

I'm willing to bet it's APU or driver related. Melty runs fine on my desktop with Windows 8 with a HD 6800. Try installing the AMD gpu drivers http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
It takes an idiot to do cool things.
That's why it's cool.
