Windows 7 Beta Test

Post by Arilious » 04 Feb 2009, 17:58

I recently installed a Windows 7 beta on my laptop and tested TMW on it.

Needless to say, the graphics engine used is certainly not supported, as graphics were completely messed up. It was using font images for the cursor, black appeared everywhere, etc. Screenshot included.

There were similar problems with the Vista betas. The finished version hadn't got the problems anymore.

Did you try with or without OpenGL?

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

I tried it with default settings. Ran right after instalation.

It's just odd that this would happen with a Windows 7 Beta when its built off of Vista if Vista solved this issue.

The problems were similar, but not exactly the same. What I tried to point out is that it is common for beta versions of operating systems to have such issues which are resolved before the release of the final product. The reason Microsoft does large beta tests like the current Windows 7 test is to collect feedback about the interoperability with a very wide palette of software and hardware. You might want to report the problem to Microsoft.

Could it be a graphic driver problem? Can you please try with OpenGL disabled?

OpenGL Disabled did the trick. Interesting.

How do I change back from Windows 7 to Windows Vista? Ok, so I upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 and I was wondering whether I could change back from Windows 7 to Windows Vista? Windows 7 makes the screen horribly blur, is not compatible with tons of programs and I am not used to it. I can't play my game and I really want to change back as soon as possible. Can anyone help me? Also, I can reinstall everything if needed, but I don't know how to. Please help!

This is a board for support involving the Windows version of TMW, not Windows in general. I suggest you look elsewhere, or delete Windows from your computer and use Ubuntu.


And Windows 7 is better than Vista anyway.
