From: Vienna, Austria
The game comes up "windowed" (ie not full screen). Didn't know full screen was an option. What are command line switches?
Operated the game on my old ASUS w/windows 7 without problem.
New ASUS w/windows 8 has Intel CORE i7, 8GB, 64 bit, no touch screen.
There is no line switch command for full screen, only for windowed. Check if you got the -w switch in your command line, if not the game should
launch full screen.
Try to set the ingame resolution to the W8 desktop resolution, might also help.
Since I am not using W8 but just seen it work a couple of times, this is only guesswork.
W8 is a simplified touchscreen centered OS for smart phones and tabs and is only an annoyance on a full grown PC...
